I Liked the idea of binging back the Cresent Hawks. As A battletech player I am always looking to flesh out the event Jihad, and this book is a great way to do so.

The events in this short story take place years after the original BattleTech Crescent Hawk's Inception & Crescent Hawk's Revenge. The good news: this is a fast paced action story starring the son of Jason, Jeremiah Youngblood. He leads the Crescent Hawks on a several mercenary missions on the planet Ruchbah.
The bad: Eclipse isn't a good entry level short story for those new or lapsed in the BattleTech (Mechwarrior) Universe. A simple glossary would have gone a long way. As an alternative, the author could have spent some time explaining what some acronyms meant within the story. Or at least been more descriptive with the 'mechs. I know I'm being a bit nostalgic when it comes to the old Crescent Hawks computer game; but, I really don't recall Jers' father ,heard in flashbacks, as being a non-disciplined Mechwarrior. He did receive some military training at one of the best academy on Pacifica after all. Plus, he retire as a instructor for an academy for Mechwarrior pilots. Perhaps I should replay the games to get a refresher.
The Ugly: The story needed a decent proofreader or editor. A reader can easily be pulled from the story when a simple sentence lacked key words like 'of' or 'the'. An reading 'get get' in a row hurt my eyes. Grammar aside there was one point where a reader could get confused about what the name of the rebels secret base. Was it called Jericho or Sand Gnat Cove? Which one got destroyed.
An editor could have made this good writer better at his craft.
Last words: Despite its flaws I do look forward to future stories about the Crescent Hawks mercenary company.

Solar panels pop out of the back of his suit and he waits a moment, then shoots up after Leopard, a little slower. Warren jumps into the air and follows.
