Overview

It is 3072, and holy Jihad rages in the Inner Sphere. Soon after they launched their Jihad in 3067, the mystical Word of Blake sprung out from their base on Terra and claimed dozens of worlds, creating a Word of Blake Protectorate. While many of those worlds joined voluntarily, some others hosted resistance movements. On one such world, Ruchbah, the resistance hired mercenary help.

Captain Jeremiah Youngblood and his Crescent Hawks have an enviable legacy to live up to. Not only are they trying to find their own place in the Inner Sphere, outside of the deep shadows cast by the elite Kell Hounds, but some still remember another Jeremiah Youngblood and another group of Crescent Hawks. Can the new live up to the reputation of the old? Can they survive, almost alone on a hostile world where the Word of Blake holds almost every advantage?

    Enjoyable

    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.

    Yes, I would read it again

    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.

    Tony

    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.
