"Clan-ish" novels and stories in Dark Age ?
« on: 30 November 2022, 08:28:25 »
I have decided to expand my reading scope, starting with "Surrender Your Dreams", I am looking for a list of what you could describe as a fusion of Clan and Inner Sphere novels and stories, hence the word "Clanish", like the evolution of Wolves, with Annastasia, WIE, Nova Cat, or Spirit Cats, the rise of Sea Fox, Clan Protectorate

Shiny thing!" - Maximillian Liao, "My Triumph", audio dictation, 3030.  Unpublished.

Thanks for that

Yeah, deciding to branch out a bit from strictly Clan novels, have a bit more variety, still a little Clan though.

But I am interested to see the evolution of other players now, like the Cats, Foxes, Steel Wolves, as Jihad/Dark Age and ilClan seems to be an interesting time for said evolution of factions

So after "Surrender Your Dreams" what's the order to read, Hunters of the Deep, Wolf Hunters, Heretics Faith, Masters of War ? As I have read the other ones

They overlap, somewhat.  You can find the chronological breakdown here: https://bg.battletech.com/forums/novel-and-sourcebook-reviews/master-chronological-fiction-review-index/60/

I'm not sure what you've read so far of the Dark Age, but I'd suggest that starting with "Surrender"--if you haven't already read it--is probably not advisable.

If you haven't already read them and are willing to go back a bit, I'd suggest starting with "Flight of the Falcon" and "Blood of the Isle," as good DA Clan stories, and go from there.
