I apologize for that terrible parody of the famous Helljumpers chant. This book is simply amazing. A must-read for Halo fans, especially those who enjoyed Halo 3: ODST and Halo: Reach. Tip: try reading it in Nathan Fillion's voice. Makes it 1000x better.

Fans of Halo 3: ODST are no strangers to who is SGT. GUNNERY Edward Buck. Matt Forbeck perfectly captures Buck's personality from the game, and builds the characters backstory and his motivation. From his tempestuous relationship with Veronica Dare, the brotherly bond and banter between his squad, as well as his losses throughout the years in the Human-Covenant War. It is a wonderfully written, often times funny, and an emotional rollercoaster as events unfold for fans of the ODST squad. This novel has become one of my favorite novels of the Halo franchise, and it's a must read for fans of the franchise.

Halo New Blood was exciting and action packed. I think, since I played the game a little bit, a while back, I was able to visualize things better. Forbeck does a decent job of trying to describe the Halo world to his audience but for a new recruit to the UNSC or The Spartans, I'd say play the video games or look up some Halo stuff online, then attack this title.

Set approximately 500 years from now, this novel, part of a series, is about humanity in the middle of an interplanetary war. Their opponent is a large group of species and factions collectively called the Covenant. Gunnery Sergeant Edward Buck is an average soldier in that war. He and his Strike Team are part of the Orbital Deep Shock Troopers, or ODST. The relationship between Strike Team members is much more than just trusting each other. They have to know what their colleague is going to do before he does it. Even though they have the latest weapons and battle armor, the Troopers still have a high death rate. The ODST play a major role in thwarting a Covenant invasion of Earth at the end of the Covenant War. Buck has every justification for wanting to retire to someplace quiet with Veronica (who works for the Office of Naval Intelligence), his girlfriend. The Spartan program will give Buck and the other Troopers the chance to, literally, become super soldiers. Buck is very reluctant to go through the internal, and external, modifications that are necessary, until Veronica convinces him. Meantime, there are some humans who really don't like the United Nations (the name of the human planetary confederation). Now that the Covenant War is over, they can't help but think that the Spartan soldiers will be used on them, to stifle all dissent. For Buck, fighting the Covenant War, was, figuratively, easy (if a being is alien, fire away). It gets a lot harder when the enemy is human, perhaps even another Spartan. This is my first exposure to the "world" of Halo, based on the popular computer game. This novel is really good. As you can expect, there is a lot of action, but the characters are real people, too. The author does a first-rate job from start to finish, and it is well worth reading.

But why mickey? Of all the ODSTs in Buck's squad it had to be Mickey? And killing off the rookie? He was the best! Please next time do not mess with the main characters.
