Publisher's Summary

Using fast and furious hit-and-run tactics, Marcus GioAvanti and mercenaries have earned a tough reputation throughout the Inner Sphere. But the Inner Sphere isn't where their newest job is taking them, because their latest employer resides in that remote and mysterious region of space known as the Periphery. Marcus and his Angels will have to face the real force behind the hostilities, the religious cult known as Word of Blake. This fanatical group has a scheme deadly enough to trap even Avanti's Angels!

Too Cut up

Okay audiobook. The major problem is that it is chopped all to bits and thus misses much of scope of the book. Really wish you had unabridged versions.

Give me UNABRIDGED BATTLETECH!!!

Ok, the sound FX and music sounded kinda crappy at format 3, but I got used to them. Eventually they even added nicely to the experience. I've followed the Battletech series for years, always hoping for audiobooks, and now that they're here I wasn't entirely disappointed. I still got the same excitement I get only from Battletech. But give us the full book! Please! This abridgement is like a low-res photo of a Van Gogh, you get the broad strokes but none of the details that make it sing.

Pretty good yarn, good sound effects!

I own all of the BattleTech audiobooks, and own most of the current novels in book form. Double Blind is, overall, a great book! Before I read it I was unfamiliar with Avanti's Angels, and after I read this book they're my fave merc unit thus far. =)

The story line has enough action and intrigue, but doesn't get bogged down, and is a fascinating look into the BattleTech world from the point of view of this small merc unit.

The performance by Christopher Graybil was decent enough, clear and distinct, with a good vocal range to distinguish different characters, so kudos on that.

Overall, a great entry to the BattleTech series, and my fave out of all the BattleTech audiobooks. I think you'd like it. =)

Good Mercenary Book

It isn't really part of the main BT story line which I really was looking for. The characters are interesting and it gives an interesting view on life as a merc rather than being part of a major house.

Massive Mechs and Battles

It’s a well written story with good sound effects and has some good intrigue as well as combat. I would give it a read if you like tech stuff and 100 Ton Mechs with attitude.

More Battletech

Add an extra star to this if you're already a Battletech fan. The fact that much of the book is set in the otherwise unexplored Periphery is cool too. The book's presentation feels a little dated. Furthermore, there's too many characters for such a short book - they should have cut or combined some of them. This would have made it a little easier to follow. Never the less, still a good listen if you like Battletech.
