2524. Harvest is a peaceful, prosperous farming colony on the very edge of human-controlled space.

What begins as a chance encounter between an alien privateer and a human freighter soon catapults all of mankind into a struggle for its very existence.

But humanity is also currently locked in a bitter civil war of its own: the Insurrection.

    " A fun read and a sort of prequel to Halo and the Master Chief (the main character is Sergeant Johnson). Nothing special, but if you like the Halo universe, it's an enjoyable way to spend a couple of hours on a Sunday afternoon. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joe | 2/12/2014

    " A nice change of pace from the usual super-soldier tales. This one is a bit more "reachable" for us normal people. "

    " Best of the bunch. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Abby | 1/21/2014

    " Loved it! This might be my favorite halo book yet. The relationship between Dadap and Lighter Than Some made it for me. I just loved seeing the good in the bad guys. "

    " My fovorite of all the halo books. It was really interesting to find out the history of johnshon. "

    " A great addition to the superb series. The story of Sergeant Johnson was a joy to read. And an excellent first novel from Bungie writer Staten. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michael | 11/22/2013

    " This is probably the best story of all the Halo books. There is an unnecessary sex scene in the end, but the actual romance between the AIs is pretty interesting. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joseph | 6/27/2013

    " This book shows about a good side story in the halo universe this book is a little less action then the other books but still very good details and does add onto the story. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lynda | 5/24/2013

    " Good detail of the early Covenant and Avery Johnson. Love the Sif and Mack bantering. Not so sure the last interaction between Avery and Jilan necessary though. Still a great book! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Adelaide | 12/10/2012

    " Terrible story! Terrible intentions! Terrible book! Sure the writing was okay, and it is essential if you truly want to dig into how the war with The Covenant started, but--UGH! I couldn't stand it! Definately not my favorite!! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Timon | 10/23/2012

    " Bad writing, flimsy plot, and most importantly, WHERE THE HELL IS THE MASTER CHIEF? "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jaclyn | 10/13/2012

    " I personally love the games. This book allowed me to have another perspective on the world, and had a good story to keep you reading "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Matthew | 7/31/2012

    " Very dull book. It is probably the worst Halo Book I have read. It is boring and I do not like how the author portrayed one of my favorite characters Sgt. Johnson. I would pass on this book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Conogher | 2/3/2012

    " O_O Battle Rifle "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 David | 8/17/2011

    " Would have received four stars, except that it decided to get unnecessarily dicey at the at end. Great except for the last epilogue. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Elvestar | 4/13/2011

    " (just look out for the 2nd to last scene) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michael | 1/22/2011

    " This is probably the best story of all the Halo books. There is an unnecessary sex scene in the end, but the actual romance between the AIs is pretty interesting. "

    " I couldn't put this book down. Finished it in a week because it was interesting at every chapter. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mike | 10/9/2010

    " Disappointing. Had some very good bits, but someone obviously decided it needed more references to the games at some point and crammed a bunch in. Loved the way the Mack and Sif go down. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Capsguy | 8/26/2010

    " Not that bad, for novel based upon a video game universe. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Daniel | 8/18/2010
