Nothing groundbreaking, but not a let-down. Revelation was a good beginning to a video game tie-in series of books and a backdrop to the star of the show: the video game series. The story does feel a bit rushed at times, and is clearly only the
first step in the story. While I am unsure of how well this gives background to the game, as I'm not playing through it; the essential pieces are laid for a solid universe. Much in the way of halo the story will be told through this book series, the video game series, and other media combined.
