This was really good. Surprisingly so, in fact.

To be quite honest, I picked this book up and read it because it had been sitting at the very bottom of my to-read list with such a godawful rating that it might have languished there forever.

Instead of a poorly written, poorly plotted, shallow book deserving a 2.82 average rating, instead I found a unique book with interesting, flawed characters in a fast paced space adventure with military overtones. It took a bit of a left turn and focused on something I wasn't expecting and ended up focusing more on anthropology rather than military threats, but it may end up back there in the second book. We'll see.

Overall, I'm glad I picked it up. Suggested for those who like the overarching story lines of Peter F. Hamilton, but who would like a significantly smaller bite of a book.

Esta novela narra las aventuras de Minobu Tetsuhara, un MechWarrior del Condominio Draconis que ha adoptado las normas de vida de los samuráis, trasplantadas al siglo XXXI, y rige su conducta por el bushido. Este es un código que engloba los conceptos de vida, muerte, honor y lealtad. En un nefasto momento de su carrera, Minobu cae en desgracia ante sus superiores, quienes lo destinan a una unidad mercenaria. Allí descubre que entre los soldados a sueldo puede existir más honor y solidaridad que entre los supuestamente virtuosos guerreros del reino, y, cuando sus superiores le exigen que traicione a los mercenarios, su espíritu se sentirá dividido entre sus dos lealtades: los Dragones de Wolf y el Condominio. Lobos en la frontera es otro sugestivo título de la serie BattleTech que nos transporta al belicoso y despiadado universo de los grandes robots guerreros.… (lisätietoja)

The bad guys in Battletech are just always more fascinating than the factions the developers actually encouraged us to empathize with.

Charrette and Thurston are basically the best writers of BT fiction. My only knock on this book that Book 2 and on starts to get really fragmented with a vast array of other Inner Sphere plot threads being touched upon.

I'm generally interested in BT for the Clans and their psycho-culture. The 3025 and Succession War campaigns generally are just grist for the Kerensky mill for me (i.e. this is why you needed Operation Revival).

That being said, Charrette's depiction of Minobu Tetsuhara is deceptively good. The novel isn't really about Wolf's Dragoons. It's actually a really good take on the noblest of Inner Sphere warriors set against the Game of Thrones style politics of the Successor Lords and pretenders. Even when you know how the book will end, it's still a very compelling read and develops so much of the DCMS culture beyond the otaku-ness of Stackpole's novels.… (lisätietoja)
