Halo books

Halo may be best known for its games, but most of the Halo lore is actually in the books, with over forty full-length novels and short stories, as well as several illustrated reference books.




The first Halo novel, The Fall of Reach, was actually released before Halo: Combat Evolved ever came out. Since then, over twenty full-length novels have been written, spanning hundreds of thousands of years of Halo history.




Some of Halo’s best writing is in the form of short stories, combined into anthologies and released as a series of Halo tales.




Focused more on the lore itself rather than the stories, Halo’s reference books cover all the important parts of the Halo universe, from the time of the Forerunners through the Rule of the Created.
