5.0 von 5 Sternen Thurston writes the best Battletech books period 14. Februar 2005
Von Rick R - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Generally you'll find the readers that dislike him of the younger teen persuasion.

I think these same people fawn over Loren Coleman whose writing style can be summarized by "ruby beams seared out against the ferrofibrous as metal melted into the ground"

Don't let the lower reviews fool you, this is easily the best Battletech novel there is followed closely by his undeservedly reviled FreeBirth and Falcon Rising... Generally battletech books don't make me laugh or strike me as humorous but these have some comic gems in it. Their actions are subtle and the humor may be a bit too dry for the average hack sci-fi novel reader.

No, I know. Battletech novels fall into 1) The uber political by Stackpole which I love. 2) the tediously agonizing battle descriptions and predictable plots twists

Thurston offers none really. Sure there is some intrigue and battle but the focus is the characters, their quirks and interesting details in day to day Clan life.

Star Commander Joanna has about 100x more personality than Natasha Kerensky ever did. No doubt Stackpole is tops at creating a universe and factions but sometimes made HIS characters into fluffy jr. high youth group do gooders. Not Clan Jade Falcon warriors though. Sarcastic, existential and brash all in one. IMHO the least interesting Thurston character easily trumps the cookie cutters heroes that Coleman and Gressman push out.
3.0 von 5 Sternen I liked battletech as a kid 15. Juni 2016
Von Denis Setwyn - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com

I liked battletech as a kid, but I am beginning to think the subject sucks. Another book in a long line of, "the large lasers hit me in the front center torso." How tiring.

1.0 von 5 Sternen An Obvious Agenda 24. September 2010
Von Charles A. Wilson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
This book is the worst BT book I have thus far read. I would have failed 7th grade English if I had turned in such drivel. First was Thurstuns magical escape for Joanna. Cornered by hundreds, one way out, alarm sounded, only a pistol in hand, by exclaiming the word "I am Jade Falcon!" she escapes. It seems Thurstun was too lazy or unimaginative to write her out of the situation.
The second affront (there were many) was the end battle between Natasha and Joanna. Its hard to imagine a that a 70 ton Summoner defeating a 100 ton Dire Wolf (especially the Widow config.) It also seemed completely out of character for Natasha to try and talk Joanna out of the fight, rather than just blow her away and say "next". Joanna was never Natasha's caliber. The end of the battle was itself just a cop out.
All in all it just seemed like the author hated the Wolves and Natasha, loved the Falcons and Joanna. Its a pity when authors of a dynamic universe write just to kill or change a character they do not like.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Indomitable human spirit, passionate warriors 4. Februar 2005
Von Zachary Zelmar - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I really liked the Legend of the Jade Phoenix trilogy. In this sequel, Thurston continues to flesh out the Jade Falcon clan. This is a great book, though I found it a little weaker than the original trilogy, which had a more focused plot and atmosphere.

Now that Aidan Pryde has met a heroic death, Joanna takes center stage. Joanna was always a wonderful character and she deserves more attention. She has an unconquerable spirit. Despite being - if I recall - in her 30s, incredibly fit, and a seasoned fighter, her clan considers her old and weak, unfit for honorable duty. They consider her contemptible for even being alive, as a true warrior should have died in battle by now. She is almost universally hated and despised. Of course, Joanna never worries about how others perceive her. She returns their hatred in greater measure. She hates her commanders, authority in general, the younger Falcon generation, the Wolves, the other Clans, and the Inner Sphere. She hates her lack of a bloodname, she hates the shame she holds after Twycross, she hates witnessing affectionate feelings, she hates her age, and she hates her miserable future. Her hatred is so strong that it is something pure. It allows her to win against daunting odds. Her pride and stubbornness are unmatched, and she never admits weakness. Joanna will take cheap, underhanded attacks in order to win.

Joanna is now the Old Guard, a proud Falcon watching her clan deteriorate. Her new commander is frail and refuses her challenges for trials. Young warriors show romantic attachment to each other. They chant, "Praise Aidan Pryde," in a ritualistic fashion. The scientist caste is defying the warrior caste. Joanna remains a purist, raging against the changes occurring around her.

This passage reveals a lot about Joanna's personality:

Diana: "Stop it, Joanna. You are spooking me. You will not die. You will go on forever. Mean people do."
Joanna: "Yes, I am mean and I hear that it is the miserable fate of mean people to die in bed."

Joanna has two friends, though she would never admit it. Like Joanna, they are pariahs among the Falcons. Diana is mildly interesting. Horse has a great cynical dry humor, is diversely educated in the midst of narrow-minded warriors, and is an unappreciated warrior.

Pay attention to Star Colonel Ravill Pryde. He is a short, frail warrior who refuses challenges, tries to win the admiration of his troops, borrows from Aidan's glory, uses devious tactics, and relies more on wits than warrior rage; by Joanna's standards, he is a deviant Falcon, yet he is amazingly successful. He is dislikable and admirable at the same time.

All four of these characters reveal something about Aidan Pryde, who left behind a legendary legacy.

The writing quality, while solid, has declined after the Jade Phoenix trilogy. For instance, observe these weak insults:
Joanna: "Castilla."
Castilla: "My name is ugly in your mouth."
Joanna: "Your mouth is ugly."
...
Castilla: "Your breath is foul."

Also, parts of the story proved weak. Joanna is asked to solve a mystery, and she uncovers secrets with ridiculous alacrity and ease.

Some readers complained about the ending. I believe it works very well; consider Joanna's spirit and methods.

I recommend I Am Jade Falcon for any Battletech fan. It features indomitable human spirit, refusal to accept mediocrity, fierce competitiveness, and stubborn pride.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Has its moments 19. Februar 2004
Von kallan - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I'm not a fan of Robert Thurston. There's too much baggage in the two books of his I have read, as he seeks to rub your nose yet again in how vitally important Aidan Pryde (praise Aidan Pryde!) was to the functioning of the universe from now until the end of time. Oh, and introduce you to yet another nefarious plot involving the honorless freebirth scum of the scientist cast and their tinkering with the legacy of Aidan Pryde (praise Aidan Pryde!) who was vitally important to the functioning of the universe from now until the end of time.
However! I rather like "I am Jade Falcon", because Star Commander Joanna is such an unashamedly bad-tempered and aggressive character who won't stop fighting anything and everything till the last possible moment. And Ravill Pryde, her new commanding officer with annoyingly cheerful and devious ways, has his charms as well. If you ignore the Aidan Pryde (praise Aidan Pryde!) element, this is not a bad mix of action and intrigue in which (gasp!) both Joanna and Ravill Pryde LEARN SOMETHING.
