They’re simply there to set the plot in motion. At the very least the author tries to make the ending a little unconventional, but it cannot save the book from its flaws. In short if you aren’t a battletech nerd you probably won’t be too into this. Dec 04, Kyle rated it liked it.

Otherwise, take the price point for what it means and take a pass–but do look elsewhere for thus wonderful title. What dooms the book is that the characters are drawn so shallowly that to call them entscheifung dimensional might do them too much credit.

I would recommend this as someone’s first Battletech novel. May 13, Drinkinwookie rated it did not like it. Still, the combat is the true star of the book and left me wanting to read the rest of the Gray Death entzcheidung. Indeed, beyond the politicing part of every Battletech novel, the true strength of the novel is in the action sequences. It’s not all mech-on-mech, however, but I was impressed with the personal combat scenes.
Unfortunately the villains aren’t too fleshed out. Battletech is the exciting and innovative role-playing game of a future world that combines non-stop action with state-of-the-art technology.

It took longer than average for me to get through because it just didn’t suck me in and make me want to read it until the book was over half finished. Excelled on the action scenes I thought, but it lacked a little when it came to character depth and development.

They are garrisoned on the world of Trellwan a world of extremes where the year is 45 standard days long, and the day is 30 standard days long.
Lovely action, drama, and explosive action. This is truly where this book excels. I might have read this one back in the day, but it felt fresh and fun and not dated at all.
