Ive read almost all the Battletech/Mechwarrior books, and while I havent liked them all, no other book has anoyed me as much as this series. The characters are shallow, one sided puppets, who seem karmically drawn to make the worst possible decision every single time.
The plot lines are so forced and absurd that you cant help but see how the story is being shoe horned into a mold to make them "dramatic" and "exciting", when they are merely predictable and trite. I prayed they would all be wiped out or disbanded out of sheer stupidity half way through the second book.
The mech battles are the singlular savings grace of the books. The author writes a good mech fight, even is his "heroes" are piss-poor pilots who always-always-get beaten.
Waste of money.
