Halo Boxed Set
Contact Harvest, Ghosts of Onyx and The Cole
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
Ghosts of Onyx:
The Spartan-II program has gone public. Tales of super-soldiers
fending off thousands of Covenant attacks have become the stuff of
But just how many Spartans are left?
While the Master Chief defends a besieged Earth, and the myriad
factions of the Covenant continue their crusade to eliminate
humanity, an ultrasecret cell of the Office of Naval Intelligence
known as Section Three devises a plan to buy the UNSC vital time.
They''re going to need hundreds of willing soldiers though...and
one more Spartan to get the job done.
The planet Onyx is virtually abandoned and the perfect place to
set this new plan in motion. But when the Master Chief destroys
Halo, something is triggered deep within Onyx: Ancient Forerunner
technology stirs, and fleets of UNSC and Covenant race to claim it
to change the course of the Human-Covenant War.
But this reawakened and ancient force may have plans of its
The Cole Protocol:
In the first, desperate days of the Human-Covenant War, the UNSC
has enacted the Cole Protocol to safeguard Earth and its Inner
Colonies from discovery by a merciless alien foe. Many are called
upon to rid the universe of lingering navigation data that would
reveal the location of Earth. Among them is Navy Lieutenant
Jacob Keyes. Thrust back into action after being sidelined, Keyes
is saddled with a top secret mission by ONI. One that will take him
deep behind enemy lines, to a corner of the universe where nothing
is as it seems.
Out beyond the Outer Colonies lies the planet Hesiod, a gas
giant surrounded by a vast asteroid belt. As the Covenant continues
to glass the human occupied planets near Hesiod, many of the
survivors, helped by a stronghold of human Insurrectionists, are
fleeing to the asteroid belt for refuge. They have transformed the
tumbling satellites into a tenuous, yet ingenious, settlement known
as the Rubble--and have come face-to-face with a Covenant
settlement of Kig-Yar . . . yet somehow survived.
News of this unlikely treaty has spread to the warring sides.
Luckily for the UNSC, this uneasy alliance is in the path of the
Spartan Gray Team, a three-man renegade squad whose simple task is
to wreak havoc from behind enemy lines in any way they see fit. But
the Prophets have also sent their best---an ambitious and ruthless
Elite, whose quest for nobility and rank is matched only by his
brutality . . . and who will do anything to secure his Ascendancy
and walk the Path.
