One person found this helpful. Both this trilogy and the “Warrior” trilogy also by Micheal A Stackpole are absolutely essential for any half-decent Battletech collection. Still a great read I first read this book over 25 years ago. Book ratings by Goodreads. Then he spends the rest of the book whining about it. There is way too much lf spent with nothing happening. It’s a favorite I come back to every couple of years. I’d recommend giving this series a go if you like Sci-Fi.

We appreciate your feedback. A few related books followed the original trilogy but they never quite live up to the level of Stackpole’s writing here.

Stockpole attempts to get around this with some seriously, uh, interesting dialogue choices. I picked this up on a whim because I remember enjoying it when I was younger, and re-reading Michael Stackpole’s X-Wing novels is something I still do every couple of years. Great characterization and lots of action. Anytime you find yourself saying, “I hope such-and-such happens” it generally happens that way.

Surely something that dangerous could easily target an enemy mech kethal the ground and annihilate it from space. You can skip it all, because nothing happens.

Lethal Heritage

Lethal Heritage Blood of Kerensky Book 1. I am not sure I have the time or will to follow along, but who knows – maybe at some point in the future.

Brought back memories of playing Battletech universe tabletop and video games back in the days. The invasion of the clans in the epically designed battletech universe. But overall I still can get excited about the world and its characters.

The book is confuzing for the newcomers in the Battletech universe. That’s not the case with this bad boy. Kindle Cloud Reader Read instantly in your browser.

So, I wouldn’t recommend this if you haven’t read the previous trilogy, but if you have and liked it, then if you pick this up, know that it gets better than the first pages would lead you to believe.


The politics are well played out and you start to get a feel for the different societies. Stackpole, to his credit, plays this material straight, keeping it action forward with strong but simple characters. No force from the Inner Sphere has faced them and won. Stackpole shows us how the Inner sphere and the Clans are basically a more exciting take on Game of Thrones than what GRRM would later publish in !

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. Worse, Kernesky often just didn’t care about the characters at all. bloor

Lethal Heritage by Michael A. Stackpole

One series that stuck with me from my childhood was the “Blood of Kerensky” series by Michael Stackpole. Refresh and try again. The “Blood of Kerensky” books are set in the Battletech universe which, kerendky those of you who don’t know, is a post-diaspora-to-the-stars, future war concept with different political factions duking it out in giant robots called “Mechs”.
