Overview

A ruthless predator is stalking Star Colonel Richard Bekker of Clan Ghost Bear—time. Once he was a rising star, the hero of the Damian disaster. But all that ended on the world of Tukayyid where Bekker’s bright future—and the entire Clan invasion of the Inner Sphere—were stopped cold.

Two decades later, Bekker is a warrior with an undistinguished history that hides a shameful secret. Even worse, in a culture that prizes youth, he is old, old enough to be relieved of duty. And when Clan warriors are relieved they don’t retire—they’re turned into cannon fodder.

Then Bekker is challenged to a Trial of Possession by the head of a new bandit kingdom, a man who seems little better than the terrorists Bekker is tasked to hunt.

A man named Devlin Stone.

And maybe, just maybe, the Trial will offer him a chance to win the greatest prize imaginable—a new place in the universe.

    This story is a nice addition to the Battletech library. It provides an unusual insight into the universe, a chance to see what happens when things don't go right. We also get to see the difficulty of a Clan warrior who mmust choose between his personal honor and his feelings toward other. Some readers may find the lack of 'mech combat dull, or the setbacks of the protagonist to dreary, but I personally liked how the Battletech universe was rounded a little bit more.

    Pointlessly angsty

    The premise is ok, but the storey is needlessly depressing. I especialy dont like when charactors do exactly the wrong thing EVERY time, its frustatingly stupid. Im sure the author is going for drama, but all it is, is a poorly executed mix of cliche and stereotypes. Readers get enough of that from Warhammer novels. Bettletech doesnt need it. Waist of money.
