Publisher's Summary

By the 31st century, humanity has spread to thousands of worlds, while a handfull of powerful empires wage continual war for the right to rule the stars. Foremost among the weapons used in that struggle are BattleMechs, war machines of articulated armor loaded with autocannons, missile launchers, lasers, and beam weapons. Piloting them are Mech Warriors, the best, most intensively trained men and women available. Like the armored knights of an earlier age, Mech Warriors are popular heroes, and their exploits are the stuff of legends.At the start of Blood of Kerensky, the year is 3030. For the past 300 years, since the Star League collapse and the rise of the Five Successor States, these mortal enemies have fought over space, land, and politics. But a new threat looms just outside the Inner Sphere. The descendants of an old Star League general, the Clans, bred to be the best military force humanity has ever seen, have come to take what they believe is rightfully theirs.This collection of the Blood of Kerensky series includes Volumes 1-3: Lethal Heritage, Blood Legacy, and Lost Destiny.

The Clans first invasion

Very nice intro into the first attack of the clans into the inner sphere. Because this book covers almost all of known space there are a lot of players to keep track of. The voice acting is well done but the extra sounds and effects were a bit much. If you are interested in Battletech or would just like a fun romp into a new Universe take a listen!

Excellant audio effects

The voices and audio effects were excellant. My only complaint is that these are abridged, and I felt that some of the things that were taken out of the books could leave people new to the series a little confused. For example, the complete absence of Takasi Kurita form the books, and some of the scenes that I felt really added to the enmity between Phelan and Vlad.

Ok, but jumps around a lot.

After listening to the Death Stalker series, I thought I'd try the Battle Tech ones. As a fan of the RPG system, I found the stories interesting but it did tend to jump around a lot and I kept loosing track of where I was. It seems like these stories are abridged so maybe that is the reason for the problem.

Excelent story, poor audio effects

Where does Battletech Collection I rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Its ok.

What did you like best about this story?

It is a pretty funny action story, fast paced and full of giant robot mechs. Whats not to like.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

The narrator was excelent, but the audio effects distracted me. At some points it were laud enough to drown the narrator. The book is able to stand on its own, and dos not need fake laser sounds.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I like it. A good escapist fiction story with giant mechs.

Any additional comments?

Unfortunatly its abreviated. A full version would be excelent. And without the horrible audio effects.
