Contact Harvest (Halo)by Joseph Staten
Synopses & Reviews
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.
One of the original creators of the Halo game trilogy explores humanity's first contact with the Covenant--a chance encounter on the far-flung colony-world Harvest. The story unfolds from the perspective of Sergeant Avery as mankind begins an epic struggle for its very existence.
