Blood of Kerensky Trilogy has 3 entries in the series. Jul 17, Just started reading Lethal Heritage and noticed that Chapter 7 begins with the date 30 July , right around MWO's parallel timeline. It. Jan 1, Book 2 of 3: Blood Legacy continues the saga of the Clan invasion begun in Jaime Wolf has brought all the key leaders of the Inner.
Further, I can't help but believe that this is not the first book or story-arc in the series, so what little plot is exposed appears to simply pre-suppose the reader already knows what's going on.
I'm a little over an hour in, I haven't the foggiest clue what anyone's motivations are, why characters are being beaten up for their professions, why these big power-armors are blowing one another up in asteroid fields, why it's significant that Character A is in a wheelchair or that Character B is joining some "Prince's Guard" or even what said guard IS.
I give up.
This abridging editor should be shot. I can list the number of audio books I couldn't finish on both hands and with my count, that's saying something , but this is garbage, plain and simple. The book may be amazing, the series grand, but you'd never know it from this example.
Maybe if they re-release unabridged. I like the universe that has been created.
I was very excited to see Audible had a great Battletech series for download. I do however like unabridged stories.
I was happy with the narrator, he did a fine job, I was also happy with the production,some sound effects and scene dividing music. I however was not happy with the way they chopped the story. Gets a clannie girlfriend first, of course. It always starts with the girlfriend...
Kai Mallard-Layo - He too pines for his girlfriend.
Mostly he just doubts himself a lot, or so we are told. He gets a Moment of Awesome TM in the book.
Then he spends the rest of the book whining about it. He also spends a lot of time doing cool, ninja-ey Japanese stuff, and talking about honor and dragons and such.
There were a couple of things that stood out to me. For one, you never really get a true sense of the size and scale of this universe. We are talking about hundreds of populated worlds here. The scope of a true planetary invasion would be enormous! And it would be extremely costly in terms of ships and manpower. This is never depicted realistically in any Battletech book.
Another thing is just exactly how goofy the whole Battlemech idea really is. Surely something that dangerous could easily target an enemy mech on the ground and annihilate it from space.
The ramifications of having that much power, and what it would really mean in terms of a war, is barely touched on in this book.
With ships like that, mechs would be useless. It's cool to discuss them, it isn't cool to link to a site where you can download 'em. This is primarily an MWO sub-reddit however other battletech related posts are also welcome. It is ok to share other games, and personal projects , but if it's too off-base the Mods have the right to yank it.
