    The year is 2380. The Intersolar Commonwealth, a sphere of stars some 400 light-years in diameter, contains more than 600 worlds, interconnected by a web of transport "tunnels" known as wormholes. At the farthest edge of the Commonwealth, astronomer Dudley Bose observes the impossible: Over 1,000 light-years away, a star...vanishes. It does not go supernova. It does not collapse into a black hole. It simply disappears.

    Story

    This book was impossible to understand. The audio level is either not even or the actor thinks talking in high and low tones sounds cool. I have listened to over 40 audio books and have not had any issues understanding the voice acting untill now. This may actually be a good book but I will have to read it to find out.

    Blood Legacy continues the saga of the Clan invasion begun in 3030. Jaime Wolf has brought all the key leaders of the Inner Sphere together to put to rest old blood feuds and power struggles. But old hatreds and suspicions die hard.

    Overall

    I read these books in my teens and twenty's and loved them. They were all in a box and donated without my knowing. I purchased several of them here and did not like them. The sound effects took away from the story, and a good deal of the story was left out. The few that I purchased were confusing and quite hard to listen to if you did not know the information already. If there was simply a complete copy without the effects it would be great.

    The year is 3030. For the past 300 years, since the Star League collapse and the rise of the Five Successor States, these mortal enemies have fought over space, land, and politics. But a new threat looms just outside the Inner Sphere. 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 theirs.

    "incomplete"
    Overall

    I have read just about every battletech book from the 1980's till now. The audio versions leave too much information out of the story. The sound effects are a bit over the top also.
