Hi Greg,

My name is Benjamin and I have just finished reading your latest book and first Halo novel, Halo Cryptum. It has been a long time since I've read a book that captured my imagination as well as Cryptum has, but you're writing style and intriguing characters have pulled me in so very deep. I doubt I'll be able to stop thinking about Cryptum until you finish the next novel and I have it in my hands.

I am a fan of the works of Bungie and the previous Halo authors, and was somewhat close-minded to what someone new could do, however, you have caused a complete turn around in my thinking and for this I humbly thank you.

I feel I could go on and on about how great the book was, but I don't want to take up too much space and time. To conclude, I'd like to say thank you for your great effort and for re-capturing my imagination in such a way as you have, I simply cannot wait until the next novel is released! I'm really energized about this saga.

Thank you for your time should get the opportunity to read this.

My humble thanks in return, Ben. There's an entire world of classic and contemporary science fiction out there, as I'm sure you know, and much of it inspired me as I was writing HALO: CRYPTUM. And inspires me still!

I could not have said it better myself! I bought this book on a complete whim because I'm a huge Halo fan and love anything about the story! I could not put this book down for a second and finished it way too soon! I cannot wait for the next one to come out and I'm so excited to see how everything connects the forerunners to the Halo story that we have come to know and love.
