NO SPOILERS IN THE ENTIRE REVIEW, REST ASSURED.

First off I will correct the cover chronology of the books, they go like this:
-Halo: The Fall of Reach
-Halo: The Flood
-Halo: First Strike

Just like the original Halo box-set, I was confused as of the order of the books, because there is really no order at all, but in any case, here goes my review.

The Fall of Reach:
To put it short, this is globally, the training and development of John and his teammates as Spartans, right from being kids to being massive, powerful war machines. An amazing narrative of their missions, and the burden they must learn to carry in order to save the entire human race, from retaliation, and beyond...

The Flood:
I will spoil you this one, if you truly want no spoilers, then skip it. But it is a simple spoiler.
This book is the narrative of Halo: Combat Evolved. It literally narrates the game, just as it happened, plus three other stories from a group of Marines stuck on Halo, a struggling Elite that wants to prove himself worthy, and it warms you up for the next book.

First Strike:
This one is one of my favorites, although many people disliked it for introducing too many new characters (because it does), it is quite enjoyable, I will not spoil you this one.

I recommend these to anyone that loves the games and/or love a good Sci-Fi book. But most of all, if you have NOT read Ghosts of Onyx, I invite you to read this trilogy, and head to read Ghosts of Onyx. In my opinion, it is the best Halo book written up to date, specially for Kurt's story... If you think Master Chief is the all mighty, invincible war machine that Bungie thought you, wait to read everything Kurt did.

This box collects 3 books into one boxed set. The included books are:

First Strike
The Fall of Reach
The Flood

Each is labeled as "The Definitive Edition." What this means is that they include extra material not in the original releases. I have no experience with those original novels, so I can't tell you if the new material greatly adds to the originals or not, but the books are all well worth reading, regardless of whether you enjoy the Halo games or not. They are great Science Fiction novels no matter how you slice it.

The other nice thing is each story is a stand alone story and can be read in any order you want. The first novel written for the Halo Universe was The Fall of Reach and really gives a great back story for Sierra 117/John 117/Master Chief. You don't have to start there, but if all you want is Master Chief, this is where to start!

The three books alone are a little more than what the box costs, so the box is, generally, a cost effective way to get the books. You also receive a very tight box (tight as in the way it holds the books and doesn't want to let go) to hold the three books in that you don't receive otherwise. The box quality is OK, but nothing amazing.

In the end, the books are great Science Fiction, and are great additions to the Halo Universe.

Highly recommended.

I read the first one in a day it was so good and then within two weeks I finished the other two! They were amazing! Highly recommended for halo fans. However, if you have not played the games, it won't be as interesting.

I thought this book set was going to take forever to come in but it actually arrived really fast.
I am so thrilled to get to read the series, I have read the first book on my kindle but I always buy the really good books in paperback and I am really excited to read the rest of the books!
