anonymous asked:

hey, could you tell me which book comes after contact harvest? or doesn't it really matter which one i read after that?

Yea! Sure thing. I’ve actually had this question before so I already have a list made of the novels in order. When I first read through them, it definitely wasn’t in order like this so its totally up to you if you’d like to follow through with the rest after Contact Harvest (jump down to #6) or even before. The order isn’t necessary but it will make it easier to put the stories together for you. So:

1.       Halo: Cryptum: “Describes the experiences of the Forerunner Manipular known as Bornstellar Makes Eternal Lasting and the Didact during the Forerunner- Flood War.

2.       Halo: Primordium: “Details the story of a human known as Chakas and his odyssey across Installation 07.”

3.       Halo: Silentium: “Recounts the twilight years of the Forerunner civilization, the Ur-Didact’s descent into insanity, and the firing of the Halo Array.”

4.       Halo: Evolutions – Essential Tales of the Halo Universe: “A collection of short stories and poems relating to the Halo Universe.”

5.       Halo: Broken Circle: “A story told from the perspective of several Sangheili and San'Shyuum characters during both the beginnings of the Covenant and the Great Schism.”

6.       Halo: Contact Harvest: “Follows Sergeant Avery Johnson and features the events leading up to first contact with the Covenant at Harvest and the beginning of the Human-Covenant War.”

7.       Halo: The Cole Protocol: “Introduces Gray Team and details the backstories of Jacob Keyes and Thel ‘Vadam.”

8.       Halo: The Fall of Reach: Details the SPARTAN-II program, the Covenant attack on Reach, and how the UNSC Pillar of Autumn escaped to Halo.”

9.       Halo: The Flood: “The novelization of Halo: Combat Evolved. Also features a number of additional subplots which expand on the events on Installation 04.”

10.     Halo: First Strike: “Fills in the gap between Halo: Combat Evolved and Halo 2, explaining the Master Chief’s return to Earth and the survival of a number of characters from Reach and Halo.”

11.     Halo: Ghosts of Onyx: “Follows Kurt-051, the training of the Spartan-IIIs on Onyx, and the three-sided battle for the planet in 2552.”

12.     Halo: Glasslands: “Details the state of the Halo universe after the end of the Human-Covenant War and serves as a follow-up to Ghosts of Onyx.”

13.     Halo: Shadow of Intent:  “ Focuses on a conflict between Tem'Bhetek, a vengeful San'Shyuum Prelate, and Shipmaster Rtas ‘Vadum several months after the Covenant War.”

14.     Halo: The Thursday War: “Continues the story of Kilo-Five while an ongoing Sangheili civil war rages in Sanghelios.”

15.     Halo: Mortal Dictata: “Focuses on the Venezian rebel movement threatening Earth and a terrorist’s connection to Kilo-Five’s Naomi-010.”

16.     Halo: Last Light: “ A detective story following Blue Team and a Special Inspector as they investigate murders on a human colony which harbors Forerunner technology.”

17.     Halo: Hunters in the Dark: “Follows a joint human-Sangheili expedition to the Ark in the post-war era.”

18.     Halo: New Blood: “Explores the story of the Gunnery Sergeant Edward Buck and his squad Alpha-Nine during and after the Human-Covenant War.”
