Overview

Solaris VII is the Game World, a planet of spectacle and intrigue entirely devoted to ferocious gladiatorial combat. Except on Solaris, the gladiators aren’t people—they’re BattleMechs, thirty-foot high, walking engines of war.

David Singh is a down-on-his-luck ’Mech pilot with just enough skill and raw guts to attract all the wrong kind of attention. Singh’s dream is to become a championship fighter in the games. He’s an underdog, but his flamboyant fighting style gives him a solid chance of making the jump. But he’ll have to watch his step.

Because on Solaris the most dangerous contests take place outside the coliseum.

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.

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.
