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.

Synopsis:

Set in 2524, this sci-fi adventure chronicles the UNSC Marines encounter with an alien collective on the colony world of Harvest.

Good for what it is. The language used is exceedingly simple and the plot is very basic, but the story is nonetheless enjoyable. If you just want to read books based on the video game Halo, I would recommend reading the books by Eric Nylund first and this once you've finished all of these. That being said, it's still a good read, provided you aren't expecting Ray Bradbury-levels of depth.
