The final hammershot smashed into his left ear and drove him into a row of gray lockers. It was as large as his own chest, and Phelan recognized the emblem as similar to the shield emblazoned on the Khan's door.

He was born in Wausau, Wisconsin, but raised in Vermont. He has a BA in history from the University of Vermont.

He lives in Scottsdale, Arizona.

The first shot to the head dropped the raider to his knees, but it took the rest of the clip to kill him. Even with such massive trauma, the armor continued to pump out black synthetic flesh to fill the wounds. Besides sealing the body in a black cocoon, it injected more drugs, then sprayed out some other clear chemical that killed the flies starting to land on the black skin

I don't know where Dan, got the information, but there seems to be no question that the invaders were responsible for Phelan Kell's death out in the Periphery. What about the Eridani Light Horse?" Hanse asked.

  • I loved these books growing up -- as others have pointed out, Stackpole had not hit his writing stride at this point so some of the writing is cringe-worthy. That said, I don't read game-universe genre fiction for a great literary experience. I'm not really bothered by bad writing.

    I was REALLY disappointed at the un-edited OCR scan in the kindle edition. Weird paragraph breaks and errant letters / punctuation are pretty jarring. For example, Crucis March is often mis-scanned as Cruris March, and commas are liberally peppered through the book in a way that cannot be attributed to Stackpole just not knowing what he's doing or something.

    It doesn't make the book unreadable, and for the other Battletech books that are $0.99 - $2.00, sure. You kind of get what you pay for. At five dollars for a backlist item, though, I expect at least one person to have run through the OCR to make sure it's not embarrassing.

  • Many years ago I read several books about the Battletech universe. Now, almost 15 years later, I've decided to reread them, because I really liked them back then. I was quite disappointed in books about Jade Falcon and Gray Death Legion. They were ok at best. This book is different. It withstood the time and even now I can recommend it to any fiction fan - politics, interesting characters and vivid depiction of battles of mechs.

  • If you want to truly appreciate the Battletech universe, you need to know where it all began. Both this trilogy and the "Warrior" trilogy (also by Micheal A Stackpole) are absolutely essential for any half-decent Battletech collection.

    Without spoiling it too much, this book is part one in a trilogy that explains how the Clan's arrival caught the Inner Sphere completely by surprise, how Phelan Kell/Ward came to be who he is, how prince Victor Hanse Davion-Steiner earned his reputation as a legend, how the Clans were stopped (temporarily), and how the Wolf-clan split. With so many vital plot points in the ongoing saga, this whole trilogy is essential. Even better, Stackpole is, and always has been, a good writer, so you won't be dissapointed.

  • I first read this book over 25 years ago. Thus began my love of battle tech.
    Character development is great and the ritualistic scenes of the various units and soon to be clans make for great reading.

  • Well written story that introduces the major players for the time well. The politics are well played out and you start to get a feel for the different societies.

    I especially like the way Stackpole writes and describes 'Mech combat. I'm not a particular fan of big, stompy, bots but I got a good feel for what the combat and piloting them must be like.

  • Michael Stackpole and Battletech. Nothing more needs to be said.

  • Fantastic ,wonderful, enthralling and excellent, these are the words I use to describe the 1st book in this trilogy. Read wolves at the boarder before this and I garauntee u will b a battle tech fan for life!

  • This is the first Battletech novel I have ever read.

    It is the first in the Blood of Kerensky trilogy and also the first novel in the Enter the Clans Battletech Era, which is comprised of 7 total novels.

    The book is confuzing for the newcomers in the Battletech universe. There is a lot of action happening on a lot of fronts, the chapters going back and forth but Stackpole did a good job at making the action integrate seemless. The tranzitions are not rough but a bit hard to follow.

    Stackpole is definitely a great writer. The action is great, storyline is rich and intriguing, character development and descriptions are also great.

    If you plan on reading Battletech books in the Clans Era [years 3049-3059] this is the book to start with and make sure you read them in order.

    This is the order of the books in the Clan Era:

    Lethal Heritage

    Blood Legacy

    Lost Destiny

    Natural Selection

    Asumption of Risk

    Bred for War

    Malicious Intent
