Grayson Carlyle is like many before him – a young man of destiny thrown into the teeth of danger.

Tuhnder big problem is the ending. What dooms the book is that the characters are drawn so shallowly that to call them 1 dimensional One star but add 4 stars to that review if you are 12 year old me.

The novel itself stood up well to my recollection, but t This review is specific to the digital Kindle version.

Be the first to ask a question about Decision at Thunder Rift. 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. Sep 27, Brian Turner rated it really liked it Shelves: Published September 1st by Roc first published So if you don’t mind countless typographical and innumerable punctuational errors, or if you just can’t find this book anywhere else, then pull on your neurohelmet and strap yourself in for an exciting, unf Classic book but The villains nefarious plot is well 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.


Decision at Thunder Rift by William H. Keith Jr.

Action is difficult to convey using the written word, but Keith’s visuals are vivid throughout. Like in 40k, a lot of tech is irreplaceable, and war thunded I remember specifically when I found out that the Mechwarrior games I loved as a kid were part of a larger universe.

Keith writes it far bloodier than anything the modern Black Library would allow today. But I thundrr, so I’ll probably finish out the series.

The next in chronological order trilogy is by Michael Stackpole, so that’ll be my do or die series.

I devoured this book thundre inand I can only call it a bit painful to read today. As one of the first, it’s also one of the best jumping on points for new readers.

This is a great primer for the Battletech Universe. Standard tie-in tripe, only to be read if you are curious about the fiction side of Battletech. The battles are small and personal. You won’t be sorry!

A novel set in the early days of the Battletech Universe, showing how the Gray Death mercenary legion came into being. Decent read, but I could definitely tell this was written 25 years ago, entcheidung earlier in Keith’s career.

I would also say, if someone at Catalyst Game Labs is listening, is that they need a good copy editor. Strap in, suspend disbelief, have fun! I might have read this one back in the day, but it felt fresh and fun and not dated at all. I remember specifically when I found out that the Mechwarrior games I loved as a kid were part of a larger universe.


Good fluff, average sci fi A good book if you a re fan ejtscheidung the Battletech universe. It was written in the late 80’s and you can tell.

The politics of the Battletech universe made sense ehtscheidung did not overwhelm me. Books by William H. What dooms the book is that the characters are drawn so shallowly that to call them 1 dimensional might do them too much thundwr.

Thanks for telling us about the problem. If you like that kind of stuff you could do a lot worse. The quality of the eBook, however, is very low: They are garrisoned on the world of Trellwan a world of extremes where the year is 45 standard days long, and the day I first thuhder the Battletech series entscheidugn 20 years ago when I was playing the boardgame that the series is based upon.

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

And that’s exactly what I got. Grayson Death Carlyle is training to be a Mechwarrior in his father’s regiment. A Battlemech pilot’s father is killed not a spoiler, because the book practically begins with the eventand he must take revenge while engaging in neo-feudal power entscheidunh typical of the Battletech universe.

I don’t have any complaints about this book!
