In a nutshell the books are a series of short stories based around the Halo Universe and explore multiple areas from various different characters such as Admiral Cole’s backstory, what happened to Cortana while she was waiting to be rescued from the Gravemind or even following an Elite as he revisits a planet he’d previously helped destroy. There’s a summary of each story on the Halo Wiki
I’ve not been able to put the first book down and as soon as I’d finished the first I was onto the second, which is where the disappointment set in as what I was reading seemed awfully familiar!
The pages on Amazon don’t explain this at all but there are actually THREE books.
Halo Evolutions: Volume 1
Halo Evolutions: Volume 2
Turns out they took one big book and split it into two smaller books so the Volume 2 I paid for contains all the stories I’ve already read, save for one extra story meaning I’ve effectively paid for an extra 16 pages.
I’m trying not to let this get in the way of the fact I really enjoyed what I did read though, I’m just a little miffed the differences weren’t clear.
