The planet Harvest was humanity’s breadbasket by the 2500s, even though it was the furthest colony from Earth.  When humans finally made contact with the Covenant in 2525 on Harvest, they had few defenses, and hoped to make friends with the aliens.  The Covenant, however, only sought the destruction of all of humanity, and proceeded to completely destroy the colony, killing the majority of the planet's population.




Join the Podcast Evolved crew as they explore Contact Harvest in the Halo Book Club.  The Contact Harvest book club originally aired September 29th, 2014.




Contact Harvest takes place primarily on the human outer colony world of Harvest, but also travels to the Covenant city-world of High Charity and the human homeworld Earth.



Contact Harvest follows Sergeant Johnson and the colonists on the planet Harvest as they try to survive Covenant attack by Jiralhanae led by Tartarus and commanded by the eventual High Prophets of Regret, Mercy, and Truth.




Anodyne Spirit, the Forerunner Dreadnought at the heart of High Charity is visited several times throughout this book.
