It’s about Grayson Death Carlyle and his quest for vengeance against the people that killed his family. OK, I gave up on this one as well.
All of the action takes place on a backwater planet. No trivia or quizzes yet. A Battlemech pilot’s father is killed not a spoiler, because the book practically begins with the eventand entscheiduung must take revenge while engaging in neo-feudal power plays typical of the Battletech universe.
There are no discussion topics on entcheidung book yet. Science Fiction and Anime fans, as well as fans of the Battletech computer and miniatures games. This is a great primer for the Battletech Universe. A novel set in the early days of the Battletech Universe, showing how the Gray Death mercenary legion came into being. A good starting point, and certainly something fans of the Battletech games should read. In fact, even with superior Mech tonnage, numbers and training, they never feel very threatening.
Still, the combat is the true star of the book and left me wanting to read the rest of the Gray Death series.
No knowledge of the game is required. I first read the Battletech series around 20 years ago when I was playing the boardgame that the series is based upon. Excelled on the action scenes I thought, but it lacked a little when it came to character depth and development.
Decision at Thunder Rift
I don’t have any complaints about this book! This is truly where this book excels. Highly recommended if you can find a copy. I’m a fan of Battletech and this scratched the itch I had so it gets three stars.
I heard about this book on a podcast in which the hosts are Battletech players. It’s not all mech-on-mech, however, but I was impressed with the personal combat scenes. We’ve got giant robots thuder giant robots, giant robots fighting hovercraft, giant robots fighting people, if there’s something to be fought, you’re going to find a giant robot fighting it!
The beginning of the Gray Death Legion is one of the first novels to expand on the Battletech role playing game. I wasn’t sure what to expect from an old Battletech novel, but I remember Frank telling me this was a great book back in our high school days.
But I am, so I’ll probably finish out the series. Standard tie-in tripe, only to be read if you are curious about the fiction side of Battletech. May 04, Mphecker rated it it was amazing. To be fair this book had some things to recommend it.
Open Preview See a Problem? While this is much more grounded in real physics then most anime I’ve seen, it might provide an interesting avenue for those fans as well.
While a little bit shallow with the characters, this book delivers with vivid battle scenes and great writing. Lists with This Book. So if you don’t mind countless typographical and rkft punctuational errors, or if you just can’t find this book anywhere else, then pull on your neurohelmet an strap yourself in for an exciting, unforgettable ride in the near Periphery of Battletech space.
Be the first to ask a question about Decision at Thunder Rift. The peripheral characters feel similarly irrelevant and two-dimensional, making it difficult to care about their fates, and all the setting exposition and dull fight scenes make the book feel like a scenario book or AAR. Great story, plenty of action. I might have read this one back in the day, but it felt fresh and fun and not dated at all.
The next in chronological order trilogy is by Michael Stackpole, so that’ll be my do or die series. Oct 07, Kynan rated it liked it Shelves: 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.
Htunder had many of the original BT books in print from my high school days back before my arthritis got as bad as it is now and I switched entscheiung ebooks only. Return to Book Page.
Decision at Thunder Rift by William H. Keith Jr.
I devoured this book back inand I can only call it a bit painful to read today. Like in 40k, a lot of tech is irreplaceable, and war ravage I remember specifically when I found out that the Mechwarrior games I loved as a kid were part of a larger universe.
It really sets the tone and gives the reader a great idea of what it is to fight with and against these massive machines and how it changes warfare completely. It’s a bit action movie but sometimes that’s what you’re after!
A huge number of missing periods, some typos like “m” instead of “in” I was enjoying the new PC game and was happy to see some of the old books available in epub for cheap.
