This book ties up the ends of the 4th succession war, Quintus Allard (Kai Allard Liao's father) triumphant return to Federated Suns and more. In my opinion, this series is better than the Kerensky series because the plots are better. There is no shortage of action with scenes from Morgan Kell vs Yorinaga Kurita (founder of Genyosha Regiments), Andrew Redburn (now a battalion commander in 1st Kathil Uhlans) during 4th succession war, the traitor Michael Hasek-Davion (Morgan Hasek's father). I was particularly moved by the sacrificial action of Patrick Kell in saving Melissa Steiner. This series is a must read for all Battletech funs. You will find this at least in par, if not better, than Grave Convenent (Book 2 of Twilight of the Clans).
