THE WARRIORS OF TOMORROW...
The battlefields of the 31st century are ruled by the BattleMech; twelve-meter-tall, 100-ton bipedal engines of pure destruction. Piloted by MechWarriors, commanded by neo-feudal officers, owned by national governments and band of mercenaries, these 'Mechs make every other ground combat vehicle obsolete.
This is the warfare of fusion-powered giants.
This is BattleTech.
THRUST INTO BATTLE TODAY...
Allegra Greene is no stranger to the military; her father is a general, after all. But when she enters the Nellus Military Academy, she finds far more than she expected. She finds a group of friends that will keep her going, challenging training, and instructors that push her to the edge and beyond.
Unfortunately, that's not all she finds, and soon the endemic politics and warfare of the Inner Sphere reach the Nellus Academy. And when their spaceship is hijacked and crash-lands on a remote moon, Allegra and her friends find themselves in a life-or-death struggle just to survive!
Praise for The Nellus Academy Incident:
"Brozek creates well-developed and complex characters whose failures and successes, strengths and weaknesses pull you in, making you care about them and their fate. I would definitely recommend this book for older YA Lit, New Adult, and Adult readers."
– Janine K. Spendlove, War of the Seasons trilogy, USMC pilot
"Jennifer Brozek's superb storytelling makes me want to play BattleTech again."
– M. Todd Gallowglas, Tears of Rage and Halloween Jack series
"A fun read. Jennifer Brozek's BattleTech novel, The Nellus Academy Incident, takes us on a wild journey as we follow Cadet Allegra Greene from the classroom to the battlefield. BattleTech fans, this one's a winner."
– Bobby Nash, Evil Ways and Earthstrike Agenda

Loved the story and can't wait the continueing saga of these characters.
The story started well, but i ended up to gratuitous. The random, unneeded, deaths were done entirely for shock value and emotional impact, not for story continuity or to advance the plot. Needlessly depressing. I wont be reading anything more by this author.
