About the author: 
Did you know that Alexandra Adornetto is no more than 17 years old and that Halo is her fourth novel? In addtion to Halo she's already written(and published)a trilogy called The Strangest Adventures(I discovered a review of the entire series here for those of you who might be interested in finding out some more).That is quite an accomplishment I must say.
