Good book, but not for those new to Battletech 16. Mai 2010
Von Donna R. - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition
This novel was quite well written, but I would not recommend someone who has never read any Battletech books. A new reader would probably be clueless as to why anything in the novel is happening. Clan Wolf's traditions as well as such important events as the HPG blackout are not heavily explained in this novel. If you already know what these are, you should be set to read this book. And yes, Katrina Steiner-Davion makes an appearance, manipulative and deceptive as ever. One last thing: I believe that the cover shown is not the correct one, since the previous (or next, I'm not sure) has the exact same cover.

Stackpole's great characters return 11. Januar 2011
Von Doc - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
No one can write characters in the BattleTech universe like Stackpole. He gets into the grime and muck of their motivations, their hopes and dreams, and gets you to root for them regardless of how despicable they might be.

As a return after more than five years away from BT novels, Stackpole delivers an off-main arc story in this one. While it does not really serve as a good introductory novel to the BT universe, for those versed in the details and history it is exceptional.

Focusing primarily on two main characters, a Wolf-in-Exile castoff named Verena who manages to achieve fame and rank through accident rather than design, and Alaric Wolf, a Clan Wolf Star colonel who considers himself a god amongst mortals destined to rule over all he surveys. Alaric happens to be the son of Katherine Steiner-Davion (known still as Katrina) and her brother, Victor, through some Clan genetic milkshake process.

Through various machinations, the Wolf Clan chooses to relocate their entire nation and peoples from the occupation zone they carved into the Inner Sphere 80 years earlier (see Stackpole's Blood of Kerensky series) by cooperating with their wayward cousins, the Wolves-in-Exile, and the Lyran Commonwealth. To prevent their enemies from taking advantage of their move, Alaric lights upon a plan to distract them by announcing (and supposedly pursuing) the conquest of Terra, the long-ago goal of the Clan Invasion.

In their feinted drive toward Terra, Alaric takes a planet and strips it of useful materiel. When another main character, Anastasia Kerensky of the Wolf Hunters merc unit arrives, his arrogance and presumption result in his capture. He learns a great deal about her and himself during the treatment he receives at her hands. He also meets Verena after her fame has catapulted her to heights she never expected, commanding a battalion of 'Mechs in defense of the region the Wolves are invading.

Through her own obvious devious machinations, Anastasia returns Alaric to Clan Wolf, where he is tasked with commanding another planetary invasion that pits him against Verena.

The end of the book clearly leaves a lot unresolved, something that never pleases me overmuch. Each book should stand alone, but since this is one book of many in a shared universe, threads have to be left hanging. While there is some resolution for parts of the characters' tales, the scale of the story is bigger than could be resolved in under 300 pages. Given that Stackpole's recent fare has topped 400 pages, this was little more than an appetizer for those who might collect the author's works. It's a good book, but not close to as good as his Ghost War or much of his earlier BT novels.
The Mechwarrior Dark Age saga continues. 23. März 2014
Von Matthias - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Reading this novel was very enjoyable. As a fan of the earlier novel series of BT, I decided right away to continue with the new saga, Dark Age. Fans of the traditional series have to keep in mind that this saga is different from what they are used to, due to the fact that it takes place in a totally different era. However, I'm quite certain that most readers will enjoy this new storyline. It is solid science fiction, that appears not to be too exaggerated, or simply too fantastic. The storylines of the Dark Age novels are all entertaining and well written. I would definitely recommend this series.

Like the previous series...and not in a great way. 5. April 2007
Von Mr. Tim Skirvin - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
I was really hoping for something more with this book. This was Stackpole's return to the Dark Age novel line for the first time since Ghost War, the first novel; and it came at a time when the books have been generally getting better, with a story going on that's interesting (Fortress Republic). But I don't really know why I expected Stackpole to write about *that*.

Masters of War is about the Wolves. It has Katrina S-D in it, somehow, and her son is the main character. It has Galaxies of 'Mechs, but the conflicts are fairly small. And, well, while there are some ideas in it that are interesting and large-scale, the fundamental ideas just seem small and personal.

This wasn't what I was looking for. It was still Stackpole, so it was competently done and interesting, but... I was hoping for Surrender Your Dreams again (the best Battletech book since the Warrior series), but this time from the writer that made this universe something worth reading for the last couple of decades.

If you like the MW:DA universe, you'll still want to read this, but you probably won't be overwhelmed.

Back to Form 24. Juni 2007
Von Lance - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
Stackpole is back with another novel in the Mechwarrior Dark Age series from the first intallment 'Ghost War'. I found the story lines intriguing but lacking some depth. Back are the large scale battles and Clan versus Inner Sphere conflicts which can hopefully be expanded in subsequent novels.

The series is back to form (over Ilsa Bick's trash) if not quite the author's.
