Sun Tzu is still hungry for power and does not care the least bit for his people! The first new elected Star Lord is the first one to abuse that position, too. I know the result of this two book "solution" and hope he will pay for that.
The authors really do have problems: they do not know enough of militarian behaviour. To make their goals available - most of the time against all odds - the heroes must be nearly unbeatable or "immortal" and the opponents must act stupid!
The CC was the smallest of the "big Houses" and owned a downed military. So how does it come to that famous victories for them? ==> Shifting the odds (by the author)!
Once I liked the CC for its exotic and religious ways and the peace!!full way of Asian philosophy (even the mad ancestors did not threaten that image) but this Sun Tzu is one to cast away!
I hope that the new Precentor Martialum will pay him back within 10 books!
It would be justice!
Like it or not, Stackpole is *the* BTech measuring stick, and no-one's measured up yet. Some have come close, and I'd have to include this novel and author. The difference is Stackpole clearly writes to an adult audience, the other authors are less clear in who they're writing to. Mostly adolescents I'd speculate.
This one falls into the latter category too. Some of the main characters aren't more than two-dimensional, and it's just an overall light read, but hey, this is BattleTech, a series based on a game; we don't read it expecting Tolstoy, we read it for a quick diversion and visit to a "cool" universe where "giant robot-like" war machines blow each other to smithereens.
This one's a good lunch-time read.
