Publisher's Summary

The New York Times best seller - part of the expanded universe based on the award-winning video game series Halo!

It's 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. In this unlikely group of heroes, one will stand above the rest - a young Marine staff sergeant named Avery Johnson....

The best of all the Halo books

In my opinion, this is not only the best Halo audio book, but the best of all the Halo books.
Holter Graham does an excellent job of reading the story, giving each character their own distinct, believable voice, unlike some other narrators (cough cough Scott Brick cough cough). They even got Jen Taylor AKA Cortana to voice one of the characters!
As for the story itself, it begins almost like a crime-noir novel, with everyone's favourite marine Avery Johnson caught in a moral struggle in his career in the UNSC. As the story progresses, he visibly develops as a character and overcomes his doubts of himself in order to become a better soldier and a better person. The other characters are likeable, including the Covenant characters, who provide a fascinating insight into motivations of their Great Journey.
Overall, this is a must read/listen for any Halo fan.
