SICK! Been using this list to check off novels as I go down the chronological order, hate for it to go forgotten. Keep up the great work you are doing with these lists, they are a huge help
Sorry for bugging you so much XD; but where does legacy of onyx lie on this timeline?

Legacy of onyx and envoy are both set in September 2558, legacy of onyx also finishes during halo 5 after the guardians awaken. Envoy however has no clear timeline comparison in relation to halo 5

According to the synopsis the upcoming Bad Blood novel begins just hours after halo 5's final mission
I can’t tell you how much I appreciate all your work on this, it saved me so much effort of trying to figure this all out on my own
Is there any new update on the chronological order these books go as there has been new books released?
where does Bad Blood go, is it between Halo: 5 and Halo Wars 2?

I just wanted to say thanks for the list, been using it for a few years now. :)

From the synopsis it sounds like it happens during the early years of the Human-Covenant War.
So Bad Blood after Envoy? I'm finally at the end of the original book list and there's more books available that aren't in the original book list from CIA. Maybe I need to read slower haha

Looks to me like it's set during the first invasion of meridian.
A graphic novel called "Halo: Bad Blood," has come out, and takes place directly after Halo 5: Guardians. It should be added to the list.

Additionally, I really think Halsey's Journal (2510-2552) should be added. This is a comprehensive list and I would love to see it become all-encompassing:

Additionally, "Halo Wars: Genesis" is a graphic novel that takes place directly before Halo Wars. It should be added to the list along with the first suggestion above.
Hi there, for those who want to know the order of Halo books and enjoy listening to them on Audible then you can view the series where list them in order.

Go to Audible, sign in your account, go Library and on Halo Book select "View Series".

This is for anyone who wants to know and see what books they want without jumping back and forth between lists.

That's the release order, not the actual chronological order
I noticed this thread has become out of date, so I've updated the list:

I am currently reading Silent storm, I am just wondering if this fits in with Eric Nylands books or if this is a rewrite in the story line. They already know what Brutes are in this book. On the First strike story line they are just seeing them for the first time.
