Book Description

The universe has gone dark. Interstellar communications has been lost across the Inner Sphere, threatening the corporate giant ComStar—and maybe civilization itself. Risking everything on a last chance for survival, Comstar has kidnapped the engineering genius Tucker Harwell, hoping he can unravel the mystery of the blackout. But Tucker isn’t just working on why it happened . . . he’s also trying to figure out who’s behind it.

Meanwhile, Khan Malvina Hazen solidifies her hold on a purified Clan Jade Falcon while hunting for the next enemy to crush under the talons of her brutal Mongol Doctrine. Hundreds of light-years away, Clan Wolf is carving out territory along the Lyran Commonwealth/Free Worlds League border—and Alaric Wolf is primed to make his moves in the halls of power.

Plans years in the making begin to come together across hundreds of star systems, and secrets hidden for decades will finally be revealed while an empire goes up in flames…

3.0 out of 5 stars Well written, but lacking in substance 7 Sept. 2011
By Kevin C. Buenafe - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Sadly, being the last book in the Dark Age series, this book left more questions than answers. Fire and foremost, whoever edited this book was either blind, drunk, or just incompetent. There are many typos, grammar errors, misworded sentences, and punctuation faults.

----Spoilers----

Now to business. Nothing good happened in this book. That's one of the things that turns me off the most. The Lyrans got screwed, The Republic Integrity was sullied, all of the likeable characters were either murdered, lobotomized, or turned into devils, and the tyrants and monsters all went on not only living, but gaining even more power. WHAT THE HELL?! If you're going to end a book line then at least tie up SOME ends. This book didn't tie up any at all. The HPG network is still down. Fortress Republic is still unchallenged and undisturbed. The Wolves and the Falcons are running rampant. Archon Caleb and Khan Hazen are still insane. Tucker is still screwed. Alexi Holt is now the devil(along with every other Republic operative). Alaric is still as self absorbed(and alive, I hate that guy) as ever and Anastasia went from a fanged wolverine to a cowering pussy cat. All the author did was turn the entire universe on its head, butcher all the good characters, refuse to finish what he started, and leave you high and dry. Everything about the way the book progressed and ended just makes me angry. If you're a hard core Battletech fan I'm sorry to say you'll be sadly disappointed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Tying it all together 3 Jun. 2010
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
This book was a huge relief from alot of the other dark age books. It closed alot of the loose ends that had been started by other books but never continued. The Tucker Harwell plot was one of the more interesting plots that actually focussed on the blackout. Mohan really added something significant to the plot. As his first book in this series, he did a great job and wasn't afraid to do something unexpected. I hope this is the beginning of a new direction for the Dark Age series that has been marked by too many disjointed plots and characters. A must read for fans.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Universe Turned Upside Down 11 Oct. 2013
By Scipio - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I will admit I did not read any of the Dark Age Books. I stopped reading at Endgame and have only started reading the recent ebook publications released by Cataylst.

A Bondfire of Worlds takes place roughly 70 years after Endgame(the last Classic Battletech Novel). As most people would expect, most of the characters that you grew up with are dead. The World of Blake Jihad has left the Innersphere in shambles. There is a HPG blackout cutting off communication between worlds and the once proud Great Houses have been savaged.

This novel for the most part follows two characters. Tucker Harwell, a HPG genius who seems to be humanity's only hope for restoring the HPG network. Tucker has been kidnapped by Comstar and is being held prisoner until he fixes the HPGs.

The other character featured prominently is Alaric Wolf. The wolves have decided to leave their occupation zone and carve out a new empire from the weakened Lyran Commonwealth and Free Worlds League.

I docked the novel a star because the interesting characters in my opinion were not featured or developed enough like Julian Davion. On the other hand, the evil characters are completely insane. Malvina and Caleb are Caligula insane. So crazy that some the chapters didn't feel like I was reading a battletech novel. That being said, I would recommend reading this as it does provide the reader a cliff notes version of the big bullets points of what has transpired since the end of the FedCom Civil War.

It was nice to read a "spine" novel that had far reaching affects on the Innerphere and is about the length of the standard novel. I like the majority of the short stories Catalyst has published but I have really missed reading feature length novels.

5.0 out of 5 stars I loved this book. 21 July 2012
By R. Hill - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book was awesome even though as others mentioned the grammatical errors. A Bonfire of Worlds has a darker story then what you might expect and it departs from the typical good guys prevail over the "bad guys" type of story, which I found very refreshing. Watch out for Alaric Wolf, he's a force to be reckoned with!

****SPOILER BELOW****

I'm very happy the Republic has been tainted by Devlin Stones action from the ending cliff hanger. I can't stand the Republic and wish it was never added to the Battletech universe. Alaric Wolf was easily my favorite character because of his ruthless efficiency in battle and his cunning political mind. I liked how the writer let you glimpse inside Alaric's thoughts when he was interacting with other characters. I feel that the Lyrans had it coming because they tried to keep a leash on the Wolf Clan to do there bidding and it ended up biting them in the ass.

4.0 out of 5 stars Review 27 Nov. 2011

Political intrigue, deception, and a surprise conclusion. Everything has a deeper meaning, so don't be fooled at the surface. Worth the money.
