Not bad, not good 3. April 2007
Von Bruce Carter - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Some decent story advancement, but overall was far too concerned with side stories, and Ms. Bick seems overly indulgent with blood, gore, and sex, not necessarily in that order. More convoluted than the average Mechwarrior - Dark Age novel, and not in a good way.

Terrific, if darker, 100% MechWarrior read 21. Juni 2005
Von KeVin - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
This book does not center on sexual fantasy, no matter how dark. Some of the scenes do have more of an "R" rating than most of MechWarrior or BattleTech, but nothing really over the top.

A major part of this book involves a psychotic killer, and we do spend some time inside his head -- which is not a pretty place-- but he's not a patch on, say, Hannibal Lechter. As killers in the BattleTech universe go, he's much tamer than Kali Liao. She, if you'll recall, loved to nerve-gas civilians and was known for torturing people to near death then nursing them back to health only to torture them back to the edge of death. Repeated the cycle with some of her "favorites" for years. (I will grant that Loren Coleman did not go into the detail Ilsa Bick does, so to that extent Kali Liao may be less disturbing to some readers. But as pure evil goes, this guy isn't in her league.)

His big mistake is focusing on Katana. Sort of like Hannibal Lechter becoming fixated on a veteran Navy SEAL and black ops agent instead of a recent FBI academy grad. Won't spoil it by telling you how it comes out.

If that was all this book was about, it wouldn't be the MechWarrior novel it is. However the book is rich in the culture and politics of the Dark Age. Particularly House Kurita and the Draconis Combine. Though there might not be as much 'Mech action and combat in general as some would like, what's there is choice.

While darker than some MechWarrior and Classic BattleTech fiction, "Daughter of the Dragon" is a solid read and an excellent addition to the MechWarrior: Dark Age canon.

Zero stars 27. Juli 2005
Von Mr. Cynical - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Utter drek. Reading this book was actually painful. I hope and pray that Wizkids never allows this author to put pen to paper for them again. I have read every novel for Mechwarrior (and Battletech before that) and this lewd trash was the bottom of the heap by far. If I wanted to be exposed to this kind of material, I'd read some trashy murder novel from a truck stop.

Robert Jordan? 24. Juni 2007
Von Lance - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I thought I was reading a Robert Jordan novel the way the story line jumps around. Too bad it wasn't as well written as Robert's novels.

Not quite perfect. Still, this "dragon" has no "yellow bird" 9. August 2005
Von Free Skye - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Here it is...the most controversial book of the entire Mechwarrior line. This is the book that you absolutely have to read, if only to see why everyone else is angrily shaking their fists at one another.

And there is plenty to get worked up about. Violence, torture, mayhem...you have probably heard by now that this book has a very "adult" theme to it and is inappropriate for children. But that should not come as a surprise. Mechwarrior, like Battletech before it, has always been targeted at adults. And as an adult, I am pleased that there is finally a Mechwarrior novel that follows in the footsteps of the gritty, often disturbing themes of early Battletech classics such as the original Periphery Sourcebook.

That being said, I thought this book was good, (definitely above average) but not excellent. Ilsa Bick has produced better (she is a longtime and accomplished writer on Battlecorps.com). And there have been better Mechwarrior novels (in my opinion, The Scorpion Jar, and Sword of Sedition particularly stand out). So, in an out of place attempt at actually using the numbers that lie between 1 and 5, I can't honestly give a perfect score when there is still room for improvement.

The crux of the problem for me was that there were too many "short story" style breaks in the novel. Each might have made a nice Battlecorps story, but they slowed down the pace of the main action of the novel for me. For instance, there was a really, really well written aerospace battle in one chapter with characters that we have never seen before and will never see again. If there were only one or two of this type of scene, it would still enhance the novel and I'd say "Great!" But by the end of the book there were just too many of them. To the point where I no longer saw them as an enhancement and instead found them becoming an annoying distraction from the real story.

In my opinion, this book is at its most engaging during its, shall we say, "uncomfortable" scenes that placed sympathetic characters in terrifying peril. After feasting on "steak" like that, it's difficult to find satisfaction in the "hamburger" of random people shooting at each other. Ironically, if this book has a failing, it's that, in the final analysis, there is far too little violence, torture and mayhem.
