This is the first BattleTech novel I’ve read that is done from the Clan perspective and it really has opened my eyes. I now see why the Clans lost their invasion.
The story is about a Ghost Bear MechWarrior being granted a new trinary; she gets to hand-pick her warriors and her equipment. Then she’s told that her trinary (which ends up consisting of 14 ‘Mechs and 5 Elementals) will be defending a planet – alone. This might not seem like a big deal, except that a Wolf Clan Star Colonel decides he wants to take this planet. He also just happens to be the leader of a cluster (3 trinaries) of veteran and elite warriors.
The story is very well written and shows that the author has a good idea for strategy. Also a very descriptive book, though sometimes the adjectives were a little repetitive and lacking variety.
Anyways, it’s a good book. I’d urge you to get it if you can find it.
As a staunch Inner Sphere supporter, I have no problems with Clanners killing each other off. Although, with Ghost Bear being a warden clan, I’m glad they win.
