Halo: Evolutions Volume II

Essential Tales of the Halo Universe

This book is available for download with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device, and with iTunes on your computer. Books can be read with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.

Description

The original Halo: Evolutions, split into two volumes. This volume contains stories by:

Tessa Kum & Jeff VanderMeer
Kevin Grace
Robt McLees
Karen Traviss
Fred Van Lente

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. This collection 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.

Included in this volume you'll find the stories of:

* A high-ranking prophet musing on the catastrophic last days of the Covenant Spartan: Team Black, who discover that the Covenant's politics might be more deadly than their military might

* The terrors of survival in the aftermath of a Flood infection

* The Master Chief struggling with his own humanity as he battles through war-torn New Mombassa

* The insatiable appetite of the Gravemind as it claws its way through Cortana's tortured consciousness

* An existential Elite, in the aftermath of the Human-Covenant War, returning to the site of his greatest victory as he deals with his worst defeat
* And new to this volume, the last confessions of a Prophet in "Wages of Sin"

Customer Reviews

No different than Evolutions

I was disappointed to see that this was a modified version of Halo: Evolutions. I bought Evolutions a while back and thinking this was another version to have new stories, it was just a selection pick from Evolutions. Do yourself a favor and spend the extra two dollars and get the compete book with more great stories.
I give this version 2 stars, however, I give Evolutions 5 stars!!

No different

I was very upset that this was just a few good stories from Halo evolutions. I bought this book thinking I was getting a new batch of amazing halo stories so I give this only 2 stars while the first halo evolution gets 5

Waste of money

I bought this and volume 1 on iBooks. While the stories are entertaining on vol 1, vol 2 is just a smaller collection of the stories from vol 1. Not worth purchasing. I wonder how many other people ended up paying twice (vol 1 & vol 2 being a repeat) for this collection of stories. You've been warned.
