Far Exceeds My Expectations,
This review is from: First Strike (Halo #3) (Mass Market Paperback)
The Halo series had a great first two books. The Fall of Reach was an excellent introduction, and The Flood, while a bit on the repetitive side, brought great character and story development to the MC/Cortana duo. First Strike, however, exceeds everything from the first two books, with a much deeper plot and brilliantly thought-out action sequences. It's amazing that Eric Nylund was able to pull this off so successfully. Before I started reading the book, I wondered how the story was going to progress, considering where The Flood left everything off at. But reading the first two chapters quickly silences any doubts. An amazing and captivatingly resonant read.

However, The Flood wasn't written by Eric Nylund but one of the worst writers I have seen, William C Dietz. The one who destroyed the mass effect book series with his take on it deception.
