When humanity expanded beyond the safety of Earth to new stars and horizons, they never dreamed what dangers they would encounter there. When the alien juggernaut known as the Covenant declared holy war upon the fragile human empire, millions of lives were lost--but, millions of heroes rose to the challenge. In such a far-reaching conflict, not many of the stories of these heroes, both human and alien, have a chance to become legend. The Halo: Evolutions collection by Tobias Buckell, B. K. Evenson, Kevin Grace, Jonathan Goff, Robt McClees, Eric Nylund, Frank O'Connor, Eric Raab, Karen Traviss, and Jeff VanderMeer holds eleven stories that dive into the depths of the vast Halo universe, not only from the perspective of those who fought and died to save humanity, but also those who vowed to wipe humanity out of existence.

I knew nothing about the Halo Universe when I got this out of the library and listened to it on CD. As a fan of science fiction, I was able to enjoy these stories without having any prior knowledge of Halo. A well done collection. Read full review
