Publisher's Summary

The thrilling short-story collection featuring Jeff VanderMeer, Karen Traviss, and Eric Nylund - part of the expanded universe based on the New York Times best-selling video game series Halo!

When humanity expanded beyond the safety of Earth to new stars and horizons, it never dreamed what dangers would be encounter there. When the theocratic alien juggernaut known as the Covenant declared war upon the fragile human empire, millions of lives were lost - but millions of heroes also rose to the challenge. In such a far-reaching conflict, not many tales of the brave have a chance to become legend. 

This collection of 11 stories dives into the depths of the vast Halo universe, not only from the perspective of those who fought and died to save humanity, but also from those who vowed to wipe it out of existence.

A book every halo fan needs to read

I first read this book when I was just a kid, as an adult i can't help but feel nostalgic about this universe as I continue to enjoy every story and detail about it. Halo Evolutions is an amazing collection of stories from across the Halo timeline and universe and is an essential guide to the expanded stories that halo has to offer. if you or someone you know is a Halo Fan, get them this book!

Needs a different narrator

Honestly, I feel like these stories could have been great. It's fun to hear and learn about different parts of the Halo Universe, however the narrator made it unbearable. Stuttering, voice cracking, couldn't do different voices for characters. Not worth buying unfortunately

Halo Fanboy

As a life long Halo fan I found the "tales" refreshing and exciting. I will be revisiting this book in the future for a second pass. have already recommended it to many and they have nothing but great things to say about it.

Some stories are amazing, others are not good

Unfortunately, some stories are phenomenal and essential for Halo lore. Others are lackluster at best. I would say about 50/50 split.

That said the ones that are phenomenal make this more than worth buying.

some audio issues but a good collection of stories

a couple stories had some skipping or cutting out but other wise was good. i enjoyed the listening of a book that would of taken me a year to finish. what was suppose to be a brake from the main halo books was turned into an amazing following of some characters and stories i will never forget.

Awful

I have nothing good to say. It started with a story with potential but then jumped to a bunch of crap. The narrator sounded like he was on drugs. I gave up. I just wasted my money.

Great narration and stories

Awesome to see they got both Master Chief’s and Cortana’s voice actors to narrate their respective stories.
