    One thought on “Halo: Helljumper”

    1. I feel like this book satisfied me and hopefully any halo fan. It's main story follows 2 Orbital Drop Shock Troopers [ODST] Dutch and Romeo, on their mission to find out what the covenant are doing on a human colony planet and why they invaded it. It's a action thriller with friendship, action, and guns.

    2. I really enjoyed this! My boyfriend wanted me to read it, so I gladly went for it. He is really big on ODSTs so this was a perfect chance for him to show me what ODSTs do and introduce me to the main ODST characters. While I have had a couple brief previous forays into Halo (through the beginning of the Fall of Reach novel, the first few levels of Halo 1 and some multiplayer randomness), and had some basic knowledge, I'm really only starting to get into the world of Halo (thanks to my Halo-lovin [...]

    3. For me, the best Halo stories are the ones that dive headfirst into the Halo universe's deep well of lore. Most of the games barely scratch at the surface of this universe, only lightly touching or referencing the deep mythology. And that's not necessarily a bad thing, since the action of the games themselves is so deeply satisfying."Helljumper" has the problem of trying to be more like the games than other stories. It's very light on the story, focusing on the bond-of-brother-soldiers thing bet [...]

    4. Helljumper is a side story in the Halo universe focusing on the Orbital Drop Shock Troopers (ODSTs) rather than the Master Chief or other Spartans.The two main characters are Dutch and Romeo, who you may remember from Halo 3: ODST. The story takes place before the game, and we get some insight into their personalities and why they act like they do. You also get a glimpse at how the Helljumpers see the Spartans, which differs greatly from the general populace. As far as the story goes - it's very [...]

    5. There's nothing really wrong with this book, but it bored me to sobs. I'm not a fan of Halo in general, so I didn't expect much from the story -- good thing too, because it delivered exactly what I was waiting for: Fighting and more fighting and bundled-up bro-motions befitting a cliched repressed military narrative. Oh, they're so loyal to each other! (Don't get me wrong, loyalty is beautiful of course, but it is not a story in itself, and certainly not just because it's surrounded by aliens.) [...]

    6. The art was probably what popped the most, it was really good art with the style of kinda paint splatter for blood and stuff, and yes theres a lot of blood. Its a little slow at first but gets much better towards the end. Plenty of action with a descent story and was overall really entertaining. Kind of short though. The only thing i didnt like was the ending was kind of fast, like the whole book was steadily paced but the end was just really fast like they rushed the last few pagesT:8STORY:6CHA [...]

    7. Mostly good.It was fun, but mainly because it features characters from ODST. Honestly not a lot of plot structure, but a lot of good character interaction and some funny dialog. I would have liked to have seen how they came to serve with the others from ODST, but oh well. It seemed rushed, and didn't have a huge impact on the Halo 'verse, but it was entertaining enough.

    8. This book was great gave me more information about characters in the halo universe. Got to see how freindships were formed and how vicious the covenant are when it comes to dealing with humans even if they are civillians.

    9. Every Halo story has the same infuriating plot. "We just found the most amazing piece of technology in the history of mankind. But another species wants it, so let's just destroy it."That trope aside, it was enjoyable.

    10. Wasn't really my thing. I mostly picked it up because I have often enjoyed Peter David's work in comics and prose.

    11. Needs to specify that it is a chomicok but needs to say its a a fricking dang chomic book. . . . . . . . .

    12. This was a really good story about two soldiers with some hangups with Spartans, but they still get into a jam and kick ass. It's a pretty good short story. I'd read many more like this one for sure!

    13. Hell Jumpers are for real. While I wanted to see a Spartan in this tale, these Marines are able to tell a very entertaining storywhile also kicking a little booty in the process.
