Overview

It is 3071, and holy Jihad rages in the Inner Sphere. Safe on worlds claimed two decades earlier, Clan Jade Falcon watches its enemies tear themselves apart. But a new threat is bearing down on the Falcons. Clan Ice Hellion, another of Kerensky's Clans, has traveled the winding Exodus Road to attack its warrior brethren--for while the Clans hunger to conquer the Inner Sphere, they are warriors--and they have little qualm warring amongst themselves for advantage.

Khan Connor Rood of the Ice Hellions knows his Clan is taking a desperate risk. Victory over the Jade Falcons will give the Hellions a place in the Inner Sphere, new worlds to conquer and exploit. It will place them among those rarified Clans who are not trapped in the distant Clan homeworlds. It is a bold plan.

It could easily fail.

For the Jade Falcons have been warned of the Ice Hellions' approach, and powerful and veteran Jade Falcon BattleMechs are turning to meet them. Can Rood and his Hellions defeat the forewarned Falcons? With Jihad raging in front of them and genocidal wars of reaving consuming the Clan homeworlds behind them, can the Hellions survive?

Read The Frost Advances, Part One of the two-part Operation: ICE STORM saga now, and find out.

I greatly enjoyed this story. It is nice to get some new Battletech fiction after years without the novels! I am happy to see the Ice Hellions getting some characterization, especially in a story that expands the universe rather than moving it forward. Definetely worth getting this story.

I enjoyed this first part, dramatic, good battle scenes, never sure who to root for! Its clear and well written, my only complaint, is all of the "skipping ahead". Some of the scenes skipped over are what I WANT to read! P.S. to the above poster- of course it has loose ends! Its part 1 of a series! Dont write a review until you learn to read!

I know it was only a novella and while the battle scenes were great, the rest left a lot to be desired. Way too many loose threads at the end.
