All The Halo Books In Order (updated 2022)

Halo is a military science fiction media franchise developed by Bungie that began with the release of the video game Halo: Combat Evolved in 2001. Following the success of the first game, other titles were released, and the high sales volume resulted in the franchise being expanded to include other media.

It is the 26th century, and humanity has colonised many worlds thanks to the development of faster-than-light “slipspace” travel. However, humanity has come across a hostile alliance of aliens known as the Covenant, which threatens humanity’s existence. This group of species is comprised of a diverse array of species who are united by their religious devotion to the extinct Forerunners and their belief that the Forerunner ring worlds known as Halos will provide a path to salvation, which is referred to as the “Great Journey.” The Covenant is hell-bent on the annihilation of humanity and has launched an interstellar war against it.

Halo Books have been available since the first game was released. The first novel in the series, Halo: The Fall of Reach, was published even before the first game in the series, Halo: Combat Evolved. Since then, more than thirty Halo novels have been released in the United States. Due to the large number of books available, each of which focuses on a different character and has intertwining storey arcs, it may be difficult to decide where to begin and what your next Halo book should be. To make things easier for you, we’ve compiled the definitive list of all Halo books, organised both by date of publication and by chronological order of the storyline.
