HASH(0x9a7869a8) von 5 Sternen Another Perplexing Low 16. Februar 2010
Von The Cop Who Reads - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Throughout the Dark Age story arc, I've had the nagging feeling that very few of its collective authors correlate to any real degree. This seeming lack of communication has resulted in a number of one shot novels that seemingly have little to no impact on the overall fiction (or are just simply awful...yes, I'm referring heavily to Ilsa Bick, Mike Moscoe, and Robert Vardeman here), or as it is in the case of this book, the thorough butchering of characters that have been previously established.

First and foremost, the ruler of the splinter Marik state is completely ridiculous. He's not necessarily unlikeable, he's just simply unapproachable. He engages in verbal tirades that paint him as nothing more than a simpering adolescent who's had his favorite toy taken away, who then tends to lapse into zone-out modes as if someone flipped his shutdown switch. This man would be unable to order from a fast food menu, let alone run a collection of systems generously referred to as a Commonwealth; honestly, forcing this theoretical hierarchy on the reader is a bit offensive. The author attempts to balance this clown by giving him a chief of staff that's as boorish and self-pitying as his employer is angry; toss in another heavy dose of 'uninteresting' and you have two weights dragging this book to the bottom of a very deep hole.

Given that one side in this conflict is plagued with children, the 'good' guys must be more capable...or one could hope. Nope. Hardy does a thorough job of gutting all the amazing characterization authors such as Pardoe and Stackpole (the former being extremely good at what he does, and the latter being nothing short of a legend in the Battletech universe) had established in the interest of casting everyone into the same stereotypical irritated mold; this felt like both a cop-out as well as an extremely short-sided and disrespectful move to me. Every central character reacted to the various situations presented with a very immature teenage vibe, and all nearly in the same fashion to boot. Secondaries were non-existent, although given the inept handling of the primaries, I guess we didn't need another kick to the face in this overall mess. It almost seemed as if Hardy used these individuals out of a sense of legal obligation, then being irritated at having to do so, decided to intentionally handle the roster of characters in a terrible fashion.

We also have the usual rundown of tired errors that are associated with this author; bad combat sequences, a general lack of knowledge concerning units of all types, and terrible dialogue across the board. We do have a new head slapper though; Hardy has virtually no grasp of Clan society, cultural attitudes, and especially their speech patterns. Not surprisingly, the Clan Wolf forces sounded, and reacted, like all others around them.

If you're going to set a novel as a continuation of a previous work, you *make sure* you play nice with what others have established. Imposing your own spin on virtually everything in a created arc is like inviting yourself to your friend's apartment and then promptly eating all his food; simply not cool. This author has shown signs of a solid literary foundation (the very excellent Scorpion Jar) as well as a perplexing 180 flip to a serious lack of aptitude (Everything else he's worked on in MW:DA). If this author is given further work in the Battletech universe, I sincerely hope he listens to the fans and adjusts accordingly.

HASH(0x99da7720) von 5 Sternen Focused on Battle 29. Januar 2008
Von Lee F - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
One thing that has been missing from many of the earlier Dark Age novels, in comparison to Classic Battle Tech books, was the focus of major campaign battles. The last charge returns to those roots in continuing the story started in Fire at Will: A Battletech Novel (Mechwarrior: Dark Age, No. 28) with the invasion of the Marik-Stewart Commonwealth by the Lyran and Wolf Forces.

This book does well to show the invasion through the eyes of Anson Marik the leader of the Marik-Stewart Commonwealth who is seeing his nation fall apart around him, but at the same time it is hard to have any sympathy for the man as is personifies the classic school yard bully. Without giving away any spoilers, I can say with the conclusion of this books the door is open to many questions and obvious controversy and struggles for the Lyran Commonwealth. If you are a fan of the Mechwarrior Universe this book is worth picking up.

HASH(0x99da76b4) von 5 Sternen Boring!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 1. April 2008
Von Michael Ryan - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
This was perhaps one of the most boring novels I have read in the Mechwarrior series. It lacked action and focused too much on the boring, egocentric character of Anson Marik. I kept waiting for some action, which didn't materialize till the end. I miss the old Battletech that was more attuuned to Mech action instead of boring political intrigue.
HASH(0x99df1240) von 5 Sternen Focussed but Basic 13. Dezember 2007
Von Mr. Tim Skirvin - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
_The Last Charge_ is the most focussed of the MW:DA novels for a
while. readily summed up in two paragraphs or so. This makes the book
somewhat difficult to review without spoilers, so I'll leave it to one
sentence of background:

The Marik-Stewart Commonwealth stands at the brink of destruction, as
three overwhelming military forces (two Lyran, one Wolf) continue to
press their already-overwhelming invasion into the former Free Worlds
League.

The players are fairly one-dimensional, perhaps worrisomely so,
especially in light of previous novels where they were much more rounded
and interesting. Anson Marik is a bully of a leader; Vedet Brewster is
an overbearing, incompetent military leader; Alaric Wolf is overwhelmingly
militarily competent; and so forth. And the story is one dimensional as
well, telling the simple story of the fall of a few planets and some hit-
and-run tactics. But they play against each other fairly well; and out of
that, there is a story worth reading, at least for the Battletech fan.
HASH(0x99d4a87c) von 5 Sternen but he has been like that almost all the rest of the books when ... 20. April 2015
Von Carlos Curiel - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I do not know why people complain about character Aston Marik, yes, he is a scumbag, but he has been like that almost all the rest of the books when he appeared, most people compares Jason M. Hardy to author lo Ilsa J. Bick in that he do not care about the battletech world or continuity, while this is tru for Ilsa (worst adaptation ever) this is not true for Jason, I honestly can say that the Aston character, along with the rest of the characters are well defined because reading the previous books and meeting again them feel correct and never once did they behave in a different light than presented before, this is hard to obtain with different authors, this is a good book to read if you are following the series, as a stand along book I wouldn't recommend it, but then again, who reads just a book that states 29 of a series?
