Let me first say I am very fond of the Halo universe. When I hear about a new Halo book coming out, I get overly excited. Having waited for your book since it was announced, I was at the book store right as it opened on January 4th. I must say, going into it, I had my doubts. Novels set in the Halo universe like The Cole Protocol and The Flood were just action filled pages of little to offer in the way of story. For this trilogy though, they picked a damn fine author. I had to take breaks reading the book to reflect and think and guess at what would happen next. Forcing myself to stop periodically was hard, but in three days I finished it and I would like to say thank you. You truly did a marvelous job of depicting the Forerunners. And of course, there is the mystery and the unanswered questions, but that's where the fun is. You have expanded the Halo universe and given a hell of a start to what I expect is going to be a brilliant trilogy. Thanks again, can't wait for the next book.
