Description

The New York Times bestseller-part of the expanded universe based on the award-winning video game series Halo! 2524. Harvest is a peaceful, prosperous farming colony on the very edge of human-controlled space. But humanity has unknowingly trespassed on holy ground-straying into the path of the aggressive, theocratic empire known as the Covenant. 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. With resources strained to the breaking point, the ultimate survival of Harvest's citizens falls to a squad of battle-weary UNSC Marines and their inexperienced colonial militia trainees.

Professional reviews

"For fans of the HALO video game franchise, here's just what the doctor ordered. This novel, by game designer and first-time novelist Joseph Staten, takes place before the events in the first Halo game, laying the foundation for the conflict that drives the series. Holter Graham carries most of the narrating duties, firing off military phrases and model numbers like a seasoned veteran. Graham also reads the sections told from the alien point of view, and Jen Taylor performs those told from the point of view of an artificially intelligent being. The story adds background depth to the game, and, judging by the print version's time on the bestseller list, gamers appreciate it. S.D.D. (c) AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine"
