    FAQ

    • Should I read the Halo books in chronological order?

      We wouldn't recommend it since many of these books are part of their own saga. But the first few are individual novels so the order doesn't really matter.

    • In what order should I read the Halo books?

      We recommend reading these popular fiction books in the following order: (1) start with the individual Halo novels, (2) then the Forerunner saga, (3) then the Kilo-Five Trilogy, (4) then the Master Chief Story, (5) and finally the Battle Born series. That will turn you into an expert in the Halo series (which is why we called this page Halo books in order instead of dividing it by each saga... But if you don't like that please let us know!)

    • What order did Halo books release?

      We added the publication date of each Halo's book at the top of the "View on Amazon" buttons (And the list's order is the publication order of this series page).

    • Why did you make this list of Halo books in order?

      We wanted a place with all the complete and accurate data of all Halo book series (and if we got anything wrong, please reply to this post and let us know so we can improve our books list!)

    • Why can't I save any of these novels to a shopping cart?

      Long ago, in a stroke of intelligence, our team made our number one rule "don't try to out-Amazon Amazon." So we don't bother including all the known books features they do well (like no follows, no crazy share features, no books read list, no add to cart, no author page, no hardcover paperback kindle version of books, etc...). No point in fighting a war we can't win. We focus on what we're good at, and humanity is better for it :)
