Based on the universe and characters from the multimillion selling Xbox video games Halo and Halo 2, Halo: Contact Harvest continues the story of humanity's next great battle in their ongoing wars against the seemingly infinite alien factions who consider the human race heathens.

This is how it began...

It is the year 2524. Harvest is a peaceful, prosperous farming colony on the very edge of human-controlled space. But we have trespassed on holy ground--strayed into the path of an aggressive alien empire known as the Covenant. What begins as a chance encounter between an alien privateer and a human freighter catapults mankind into a struggle for its very existence.

But humanity is also locked in a bitter civil war known as the Insurrection. So the survival of Harvest's citizens falls to a squad of battle-weary UNSC Marines and their inexperienced colonial militia trainees. In this unlikely group of heroes, one stands above the rest...a young Marine staff sergeant named Avery Johnson.

Listener Opinions

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Vamshidhar | 2/14/2014

    " 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. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mark Hughes | 1/29/2014

    " 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. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 K. Richards | 1/17/2014

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

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shaun | 12/22/2013

    " 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 Hokanson | 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 Metzger | 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 Karnezos | 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. "

    " 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
