In the second half of 2006, and into the early part of 2007, BattleCorps and InMediaRes partnered with BattleTech players worldwide to create something amazing: a serial novel, covering the Word of Blake attack on the Federated Suns capital, New Avalon, for which the players would game to determine the outcome.

That’s right: the players determined how the book came out, through sanctioned campaign play.

It was amazing.
It was giant.
It spawned a darn good story.

Now, for the first time, Catalyst Game Labs has collected all thirteen of the Isle of the Blessed serial novel pieces into one package and presented it for sale. The novel is a pulse-pounding combat tale of battles between two different sets of true believers: the Davions, defending their capital, and the Word of Blake, fighting their Jihad.

“It was an incredible challenge,” says author Steven Mohan, Jr., “and it also turned out to be one of the most exciting and entertaining writing projects I ever got to work on. I’m deeply grateful to the folks at BattleTech for giving me the opportunity to write this story. It was a blast!”

Available now for e-book readers worldwide, Isle of the Blessed contains all the serial fiction published, as well as the companion journal entries published on the BattleCorps website, and a new foreword from the author.
