Publisher's Summary

The final novel of the Forerunner Saga trilogy by science-fiction legend Greg Bear - set in the Halo universe and based on the New York Times best-selling video game series!

One hundred thousand years ago, Chaos rules the final days of the Forerunner empire. The Flood - a horrifying, shape-changing, and unstoppable parasite - has arrived in force, aided by unexpected allies, and internal strife has desperately weakened Forerunner defenses. 

Facing the imminent collapse of their civilization, the Forerunners known as the Ur-Didact and the Librarian reveal what they know about the relationship between the long-vanished race of the Precursors and the Flood. While the Precursors created many technological species, including those of the Forerunners and humanity itself, the roots of the Flood may be found in an act of enormous barbarity, carried out beyond our galaxy 10 million years before. Because of that savagery, a greater evil looms. 

Only the Ur-Didact and the Librarian - husband and wife pushed into desperate conflict - hold the keys to a solution. As they face the consequences of a mythic tragedy, one of them must now commit the greatest atrocity of all time - a shocking act designed to prevent an insane abomination from dominating the entire galaxy....

One of the best books in the series!

I love halo and all the lore, mystery and realism of the series. The books are great at building on the epic story of the halo universe and this one is an essential read.

Halo background story

if you want to know more about the halo's and their functions, secrets and how they were made, this is a great finish to a trilogy that tells an intresting story for the background of halo.

fills in the back story very well

as all of the forerunner books do this fills in all the gaps in your imagination. gives extremely detailed imaging of characters and places and fills in the backstory on several characters from the previous books as well as a couple from the game. if you read any of the books about the forerunners be sure that this is one you read. my only complaint is that it could have been longer. very much enjoyed all of the books I have read(listened to). now I'm on to the next one!!!

Unnecessary sequel

the story is the exact same as the previous book. all but a couple of events are new. this is purely a regurgitation of book number 2 in this 3 book saga. you can skip it and be at no loss.
