''The Flood'' is the second ''{{Franchise/Halo}}'' book, a novelization of ''VideoGame/HaloCombatEvolved'', by William Dietz. It goes into detail about not just John's escapades during ''Halo 1'', but the ODST, Marines, and [[PerspectiveFlip the Covenant]] during the events of the game.

** Though it's logical that the new Covenant and Marine characters wouldn't have had much chance to directly interact with Keyes in ''The Fall of Reach'', the same cannot be said for bridge crew members Ellen Dowski and Gail Purdy, who were not mentioned at all in ''The Fall of Reach''.

** Finally, the book indicates about ''300'' humans were still alive when the Chief set off to destroy Halo, in contrast to ''Combat Evolved'' implying that almost all of the remaining UNSC soldiers had already died (with no mention of any humans surviving the Flood outbreak except Foehammer).

*** Speaking of which, the book claims that some of the Marine [=NPCs=] Chief fights alongside are actually [=ODSTs=], though the game itself makes no mention of this. This was probably ''Combat Evolved'' came out back when Bungie themselves weren't planning on ever putting [=ODSTs=] into the games.

* RememberTheNewGuy: Applies to pretty much every single character in the entire book, bar Master Chief, Cortana, Keyes, Foehammer, Johnson's squad, the two techs from the first level, and the returning bridge crew from ''The Fall of Reach''. Everybody else is completely new, though it's partly justified by most of the new characters being Marines and Covenant, with several being fill-ins for the original game's [=NPCs=]. That said, their actions in ''The Flood'' don't completely correspond with those of their in-game counterparts.

** Wellsley is a strange case; ''The Fall of Reach'' mentioned offhand that the ''Pillar of Autumn'' had two [=AIs=] assigned to it, but ''The Flood'' depicts him as escaping to Halo's surface with the ship's ODST contingent, even though ''Combat Evolved'' makes no mention of a second UNSC AI working with Cortana.
