It’s Battletech Old School – and the Marauder is still the coolest looking mech around even if the cover picture doesn’t do it justice. I would recom Decision at Thunder Rift takes place in the Battletech game universe, where soldiers fight wars in giant robots called Mechs.

The villains nefarious plot is entscheiidung thought out, the climax is tactically interesting and juggles three inter-related battles deftly switching at just the right moment and an honest attempt is made at describing the alien planet’s topography and climate in a science fiction-y way.

The politics of the Battletech universe made sense and did not overwhelm me. We are only briefly introduced to the politics of the Successor States in this book, but I can sense that it will provide a very fertile atmosphere for more stories in the future.

The original print versions have been out of circulation for a long time, so when I started playing the newest computer game I did some digging and found that they added digital support for most riift the older books under a Legends imprint. Eigentlich viel besser als durch das alberne Cover und die mangahaften Zeichnungen zu erwarten war. Excelled on the action scenes I thought, but it lacked a little when it came to character depth and development.

Good book, gun read First BattleTech book I ever read, and I enjoyed the story and character development. Aug 09, Kevin rated it really liked it Recommends it for: Dec 29, Nlindgren rated it did not like it.


Said power plays are, unfortunately, rather uninteresting and confusing while still ostensibly relevant, and the revenge story is bog-standard. In fact, even with superior Mech tonnage, numbers and training, they never feel very threatening.

The setting is interesting and the plot engaging, but not remarkable.

If I can’t stand it also, I guess Battletech is dead to me. Ian Douglas SF series:
