One thought on “Halo: Evolutions - Essential Tales of the Halo Universe

  1. Tina

    4.5 5 actually This was, by far, the best Halo book I ve read 13 15 stories were well written, expertly paced, character driven tales that kept me fully entranced There were two that were similar in resolution, which was odd the editor shouldn t have put them so close in the anthology There were two I wasn t entirely fond of, but I didn t dislike them Karen Traviss Human Weakness wasn t bad, but, like her Star Wars novels, it was full of repetition this leaves me wary of her continuation of the [...]

  2. Melisa Ramonda

    UNA MUY BUENA RECOPILACI N QUITE A GREAT ANTHOLOGY I d like to spare two stories that, for me, were just perfect Mona Lisa , since the characters were extremely detailed and the story itself unraveled in fast paced ultra high emotional bases and it was also a nightmarish depiction of what happens when the Flood attacks and the Biography of Preston Cole yes, the same guy from the Cole Protocol The name of the story is actually different but I don t remember it it was too long The latter story was [...]

    Halo Evolutions is a book involving many of the incredible stories in the Halo universe When humanity expands beyond the stars in a feat of human technology that allows them to strech beyond the stars they find something that shouldnt have been found An alliance of alien species who s orgins come from far parts of the universe believes humanity to be a plague of the glaxy and believe humans to be against their gods This group of aliens called themselves the Covenant and is sworn to extinguish al [...]

    This month I read the 500 page book of science fiction short stories set in the Halo universe It includes 4 poems and 11 short stories To begin with, I m going to talk about Dirt The theme of this story is that if you have to choose between doing the right thing and being set for life, choose the right thing The author s writing style is very straight forward I could almost hear the ODST talking about his life as he lay dying This and Human Weakness were my two of my favorite stories.Speaking of [...]

  5. Jared Shilts

    personal response As a major fan of the series of the Halo books, I have only praise for this entry into the collection of books Halo Evolutions is a collection of stories with varying plots and settingsot Humanity has expanded its reach to the outlying planets in the galaxy It has colonized thousands of worlds and developed a unified government to keep control over the worlds The central government, known as the United Nations Space Command U.N.S.C , has made many breakthroughs in both their sc [...]

  6. Andrew

    This is a must read if you re a Halo fan It s possibly the best book they ve released after The Fall of Reach Since it s a collection of short stories, I m going to say a couple of quick things about each one.Beyond, Acheron VII, Icon, ConnectivityPariah This story looks back at the creation of the Spartan IIs and focuses on Soren 66 It s a good story, but there were a couple things about Soren that didn t seem to quite fit with the rest of the Spartans, which makes sense, I suppose, considering [...]

  7. Chad

    Like most short story collections, this is hard to review There s a couple of clunkers mixed in here, but also some real gems Some of the editorial choices were odd, like allowing two stories with essentially the same ending hero sacrifices himself with a grenade to take out enemies in the process into this collection They were close to each other in the book, which just highlighted the repetition for me.My three favorites 1 The Mona Lisa by Jeff Vandermeer and Tessa Kum, which tells the story o [...]

  8. Katie

    Fun to get short stories of so many aspects of the universe and well done keeping them consistent Also loved the artwork.

  9. Ricky Beckett

    Halo Evolutions is a collection of 11 short stories that gives the reader further insight into the Halo lore Each story is highly well written and each ends in a way that the reader does not expect, or even desire When reading a particular short story, the reader may desire the characters to survive, but to the reader s dismay some don t The survival of some characters are even left ambiguous To me, this is a mark of extraordinary writing writing a story in which the events make the reader expec [...]

  10. Sab Parayno

    best tale from the book Mona Lisa about a team of UNSC troops sent out to explore a seemingly empty ship only to discover it has been taken over by the Flood even if you are not a Halo fan, you would probably enjoy this one nts write screenplay based off of it.honorable mentions Stomping on the Heels of a Fuss about human prisoners and brutes brutality, Midnight in the Heart of Midlothian about a man who sacrifices his life to protect the location of earth from Covenant forces, and Blunt Instrum [...]

  11. Joe Pranaitis

    Wow were to start, first this anthology has so many good stories spanning both the Covenant war and it s aftermath that it s hard to pick just one to talk about, it should also be noted that the Flood dose make an appearance as well in a story that has an Aliens type feel and we do read about the life and possible death of Admiral Cole who if you ve read the rest of the books and or played the games you would know of the Cole protocol I highly recommend this book for all science fiction fans.

  12. Christine

    I loved this book My favorite story was The Mona Lisa Short stories are a great way to explore the Halo universe

  13. Matthew Ciarvella

    You might notice I have both this book and Halo Evolutions Vol 1 on my have read shelf Which suggests that they re different books Why would I read the same book twice On the other hand, they have the same cover and they seem very similar So what s the difference between The Essential Tales and The Essential Tales Vol 1 That was the question I set out to answer.So here s the thing They are different books They do contain a few different stories But only a few MOST of the stories were shared betw [...]

  14. Alex Brown

    I picked this book one day because i needed something to read for school, but something that interested me, in this case halo The whole book doesn t have any specific or one setting because its many short stories put together, but generally all across the halo universe Some of the main stories are on a planet called harvest, or other random planets in one big book There is also no main character, as every story has there own main characters Almost all of the characters face internal and external [...]

  15. Jessica

    This book had been on my to read list for years and, somehow, it kept getting pushed back to the bottom of the pile I picked it up because said pile got really short only three fiction books left the horror and the first thing I thought when I finally started reading it was, Why the hell didn t I pick this book up sooner Halo Evolutions is a collection of short stories and a few poems and artwork based on the boundless Halo universe The stories are as diverse as they are interesting, and for me, [...]

  16. Steven Lee

    Despite the criticisms that get heaped upon video game narratives I think parts of the Halo universe is some of the most interesting science fiction writing in the recent years The games came out just as I was rediscovering reading and diving into the science fiction genre The Halo universe is a distillation of a lot of different greater science fiction works That said there are interesting elements present in the series for major voices in sci fi to tease out in this anthology It is difficult t [...]

  17. Taylor Nelson

    Some good, some bad, one greatLOVED Human Weakness Jen Taylor did an amazing job narrating It was worth getting just for this story.Pariah was good Dirt was good.The Impossible Life and the Possible Death of Preston J Cole was enjoyable The Return was starting to get interesting but then ended.The Mona Lisa was good but it dragged on a little bit.Midnight in the Heart of Midlothian was meh.Stomping on the Heels of a Fuss was kind of interesting because you get to see just how brutal the Brutes a [...]

    Originally posted on andyparkes blog indexOne of the things I really enjoy about the Halo series of games is the back story and for Halo fans there has been plenty of fiction thrown up which I ve been than happy to read So when I saw Halo Evolutions and Halo Evolutions Volume 2 on I ordered them straight away In a nutshell the books are a series of short stories based around the Halo Universe and explore multiple areas from various different characters such as Admiral Cole s backstory, what hap [...]

  19. Jesse Booth

    I have no idea how long it took me to read this book A very long time.I was excited when this collection came out I have written several short stories myself, so when I heard that a compilation of Halo shot stories was being released, I quickly snatched up the first copy I could get Now, two years later, I can finally say that I finished it.To be completely honest, the stories weren t very good The only one I really cared for was the one about Cortana s experience withstanding the gravemind take [...]

  21. Shaun Heenan

    Like any collection of short stories, some parts are much better than others A lot of the book is the same utterly dull space military hoo rah ism that fills most of the books in the main series, but there are a few real highlights that really elevate the collection.The best of them is the story of Cortana s encounter with Gravemind between Halo 2 and 3 She s always been the most interesting character in the games, and this was probably the most important blank spot in the plot.There s a horror [...]

    The book Halo Evolutions Essential Tales of the Halo Universe starts with a six year old boy named Soren Soren lived on an illegal farm with his parents, on the planet Dwarka His mother was sick with a disease, her name was not said so his father locked his mom in a closet so she wouldn t infect them Soren did not understand, and planned to kill is father to free his mom After stabbing his father in the neck with a knife, and running away to the forest He ended up living in the forest waiting fo [...]

  23. Hugo

    I could not believe how much the people who created this game had so much of a story plot before the game saga How many different stories they had is the one thing that actually surprised me, with the awesome final story of how a man who became a highly respected cammander from a lonely lieutenent Another story i really liked was the one when a man got hurt and he had to sleep in a special medical bed, and while he slept, his ship got invaded by the covenent, when he woke up he found out he was [...]

  24. Jamy

    This is my second time listening to this book I got the audiobook many years ago, at my son s urging, because he was a rabid Halo fan and I will confess, I groaned inwardly when he chose it I mean, it s fanfic written for a game, for crying out loud But I ended up being very pleasantly surprised The writing was good, the stories were compelling, and I am here to tell you that The Mona Lisa was one of the skin crawliest, creepy stories I ve read in a while The stories are very action packed, but [...]

  25. Denzel

    If you are a fan of the Halo series who is somewhat interested in the rest of its universe, this book will satisfy you The quality and enjoy ability of the stories varies, as happens with any anthology Be prepared to be bummed out however, as there are several tales of heroic self sacrifices and lost causes The characterisation of the Master Chief and Cortana, the main players of the series, also varies, as each author gives their own take While you may not enjoy or agree with the interpretation [...]

  26. Jason Hamilton

    Pariah by B K Evenson, is actually a very enjoyable short story It covers elements of the Halo universe that wouldn t normally be covered in a novel, comic, or video game, namely what happened to the Spartans who became deformed due to the human augmentation procedures The short does a remarkable job of getting into the background and psyche of the character in few pages The story was easy to get into and identify with Additionally the action is well paced and keeps the reader engaged The ending [...]

  27. Mike

    I can see why my son likes this I read the book tie ins for the various pop culture fads when I was his age That said, they aren t bad and while you don t necessarily need to know or play Halo to understand these stories, it helps Some of the stories have short sections here and there that read like the author or possibly the editor went down a rote list of things from the video game that were required to be in the stories, just in case the drawing of the Spartan on the cover wasn t enough to te [...]

  28. Fred Hughes

    This book makes eminent sense It includes some of our favourite HALO authors Eric Nyland, Tobias S Buckell etc and their short stories encompassing various aspects of the HALO world.It takes time to develop a fully flushed out and viable HALO series book so this is a nice gap filler while we wait for the next full novel.There are 14 different HALO short stories here of which all of them could be developed into future full length novels It s fun with the short stories to be able to read an entire [...]
