Publisher's Summary

Continuing the saga of the award-winning Xbox game....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.

    "I'm not a gamer"

    Always looking for good sci fi on Audible. This book's got everthing I like in the genra; high tech gadgetry and theories, likeable characters (including the aliens), and storyline.

    I almost didn't buy the book because I'm not a big fan of video games. But I'm glad I gave it a chance.

    I recommend it.

    "READ ORDER"

    I love this series. But the biggest problem I have run into is the read order. Now that I am on #6 I can share with certainty.

    Halo: Contact Harvest
    Halo: The Cole Protocol
    Halo: The Fall Of Reach
    Halo: The Flood
    Halo: First Strike
    Halo: Ghosts of Onyx

    Once I have finished the available books I'll update the list.

    "First Contact"

    This is the book that starts it all and lays the footings for the Human - Covenant war. It is the story of first contact between races, and its a good listen.

    "Awesome origin story for Sgt. Johnson"

    This is a great story of Sgt. Johnson's life before Halo. Also very current events with the insurrection that he's fighting. No Spartans in this one, but it doesn't suffer for that.

    PARENTAL WARNING! You may want to edit out the last five minutes of this story. There's a sex scene at the end. While not very graphic and not unbelievable it's still very obvious what's going on. If you miss it and this is your kid's first introduction to sex, it's not bad either. They actually care about each other.

    "Best Halo title"
    Where does Halo rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I've heard all of the halo books and this is by far the best written and narrated of all the halo novels. It was a nice touch having Jen Taylor (cortana) voice the A.I. Sif.

    "An interesting look at the Humans first encounter"

    This book is an interesting look at the first human encounter with the Covenant. It's also a look at the Office of Naval Intelligence and how their personnel operate. The series of events that lead up to what is now known of the Covenant War. It's an interesting look at how the war started, and just how little was known of what was going on.

    "The event that started it all."

    Great background story on the Covenant and Sgt. Johnson. Answers a lot of questions about the Halo universe.
