The concepts of fighting these incredible weapons is well drawn out here – from infantry tactics to vehicle and even Mech on Mech combat! Bill Keith was raised in the mountains of western Pennsylvania, and served in the Navy as a corpsman for many years. First off, if you like me came to BattleTech looking for giant fighting robots then you’re going to be a happy camper! Grayson Carlyle is lik This is a great primer for the Battletech Universe.
Ian Douglas SF series: The peripheral characters feel similarly irrelevant and two-dimensional, making it difficult to care about their fates, and all the setting exposition and dull fight scenes make the book feel like a scenario book or AAR.
Decision at Thunder Rift
Like in 40k, a lot of tech is irreplaceable, and war ravages continually for centuries. Battletech has a huge backstory and I appreciated this book entschekdung that it focused on a small corner of that universe.
No trivia or quizzes yet. One star but add 4 stars to that review if you are 12 year old me.
But I am, so I’ll probably finish out the series. Lovely action, drama, and explosive action. This would also be an interesting read for fans of “Giant Robot” anime. To be fair this book had some things to recommend it.

Open Preview See a Problem? If I can’t stand it also, I guess Battletech is dead to me. So if you don’t mind countless typographical and innumerable punctuational errors, or if you just can’t find this book anywhere else, then pull on your neurohelmet and strap yourself in for an exciting, unforgettable ride in the near Periphery of Battletech space.
I would recommend this as someone’s first Battletech novel.
The novel itself stood up well to my recollection, but t This review entecheidung specific to the digital Kindle version. The big problem is the ending. No knowledge of the game is required.
The great thing about the novels is that they stand apart from the tabletop game. Aug 31, Jonathan rated it it was amazing. Want to Read Currently Reading Read.
Decision at Thunder Rift by William H. Keith Jr.
Battletech is the exciting and innovative role-playing game of a future world that combines non-stop action with state-of-the-art technology. He is left stranded on a strange planet as he pulls together a force of Mechwarriors to protect his new home from invaders, all the while struggling with an inner conflict of him choosing between his new family, and revenge. Published September 1st by Roc first published It seems as though the author suddenly discovered he was nearing the word limit, and had to wrap up the story quickly.
I would recom Decision at Thunder Rift takes place in the Battletech game universe, where soldiers fight wars in giant robots called Mechs. Good fluff, average sci fi A good book if you a re fan of the Battletech universe. You won’t be sorry! A good starting point, and certainly something fans of the Battletech games should read. Now much later I am reading them again and it is going to be interesting to see how they stand up.
I loved the characters, the combat was interesting, and the politics weren’t overbearing, as I’ve seen in some of the later Battletech novels. Decent read, but I could definitely tell this was written 25 years ago, much earlier in Keith’s career. They are garrisoned on the world of Trellwan a world of extremes where the year is 45 standard days long, and the day is 30 standard days long.
May 13, Drinkinwookie rated it did not like it. The prose repeats itself a lot, describing thing over and over again using the same terms; it’s not winning any awards. In fact, even with superior Mech tonnage, numbers and training, they never feel very threatening.
Quotes from Decision at Thund Ahora toca buscar las otras dos novelas para completar la historia. May 16, Cody rated it really liked it. Said power plays are, unfortunately, rather uninteresting and confusing while still ostensibly relevant, and the revenge story is bog-standard. Highly recommended if you can find a copy.
