    1. Descubrí esta serie hace unos quince años, cuando ya estaba descatalogada. Tardé muchos años en llenar los huecos de la estantería y no tengo claro si ya los he leído todos, pero no me importa porque siempre disfruto con las relecturas. Antes de nada decir que la serie se basa en un juego de mesa que posteriormente tuvo varios desarrollos en forma de juegos para pc. Cuando descubrí los juegos ya eran historia antigua pero me lo pasé de vicio pilotando los mechs que conocía por los libro [...]

    2. Warrior: En Garde is the first installment of the Warrior Trilogy of the Battletech fiction. first published in 1988, it was one of the first Battletech novels.3 stars. The writing is solid from a technical standpoint, both from a descriptive standpoint and also from a translation standpoint (i.e rules/game play converted to fiction). There are a few problems in the translation (firing arm-mounted lasers immediately after a punch, for instance), but, in general, things follow the rules of the mi [...]

    3. -Entretenimiento bajo franquicia bastante logrado.-Género. Ciencia-Ficción.Lo que nos cuenta. En el futuro lejano, la civilización humana se ha expandido por la galaxia pero ha perdido la cohesión. Ahora, cinco Casas principales y muchas menores luchan por la supremacía de la Esfera Interior en un combate tanto político como militar y tanto frontal como mediante el engaño. En el campo de batalla, el BattleMech es el arma más usada, unos gigantes acorazados y erizados de armas que son man [...]

    4. Michael Stackpole is an excellent writer who delivers a strong performance in this first book of a three part series, featuring many prominent characters famous within the franchise.En Garde is a story of political intrigue, deception, betrayal, and is not only a good choice for first-time readers of the franchise, but a must read for fans. It is also the strongest book in the series, with the some of the best character development and exploration of the Battletech universe.Even if you're not fa [...]

    5. Warrior: En Garde is book one of the Warrior Trilogy by Michael Stackpole and comprises an early and important part of the Battletech universe backstory involving the imminent conjoining of the Steiner and Davion Houses and the machinations, political and otherwise, that are occurring around this event. The bones of a really good story are present in this book, but the writing isn't up to entirely unearthing it. It turns out that En Garde is actually the first work of Michael Stackpole's to be [...]

    6. Similar to many (most?) who have read this story and others within the Battletech series, I became acquainted with it when I was younger. In my case, I first read this when I was still in in my teenage years, though even now, as a university-educated thirty-something, I still greatly enjoy it. While there is no doubt some effect of nostalgia present whenever I pick up the book (or any Battletech book), I can feel confident in stating that as a piece of writing, it's plenty good even without rose [...]

    7. Ughhh. Not that it starts out all that great, but about halfway in, the book gets real bad, and then it is all downhill from there. The dialogue is sloppy, the internal monologues are often unnecessary, most of the characters are flat, and the action is utterly lackluster. The worst is that at several points, the author fundamentally mischaracterizes the relationship between standard (teran) hours/days and planet hours/days, which wouldn't be so bad if he hadn't also decided to craft a plot-turn [...]

    8. I'm giving this a higher star rating than it ranks for me personally because it was well-written - what I read of it. I didn't get very far before just basically rolling my eyes and putting it aside. By far the best written out of the BT books I tried, Stackpole shows his usual adroitness at spinning a tale. And I really WANT to like this, what with all the interstellar politics and so on, but it's TOO damn convoluted for my tastes. And I don't know most of the Houses/characters/world/ANYTHING. [...]

    9. Warrior: En Garde is the first in the Warrior Trilogy by Michael A Stackpole. A sweeping story of politics, betrayal, love and revenge. As this is the first book in the trilogy there are a large number of characters to be introduced. This causes the story to jump around a lot which is a little distracting at times. The three main storylines cover the mercenary group The Kell Hounds, the Archon Designate Melissa Steiner and a mechwarrior Justin Xiang Allard.It's interesting re-reading this series [...]

    10. An interesting way to set the table for the 4th succession war.Like a lot of Battletech fiction though, the handling of culture and race in the 80s hasn't aged well. It's a thousand years in the future and race relations in the Inner Sphere are so silly that you're left practically welcoming the eventual clan invasion to wipe the slate clean of racially segregated interstellar empires. Argh.Still the plotting is interesting enough and Stackpole is at worst a bit corny and at best a great weaver [...]

    11. This first series of books based in the BattleTech universe is my favorite out of all of them. If you ever played Mechwarrior, watched Voltron, or Gundam, this is based on the same principle. Humans in giant robotic armor attack each other for the success and future of their own territories. My favorite part about this series is that it makes you think about your own ethics. Growing up, I modeled my behavior after House Davion and the Kell Hounds. These books really leave a lasting impression.

    12. Warrior: en Garde is a decent read, as far as mindless sci-fi goes. It's not a deep book, won't make you think about anything after you're done reading, and probably won't make your top 10 list, but it's fun at times. Personally, I'm not a fan of Stackpole's writing. His characters feel fairly flat, and I detest the inner monologue of his characters that he writes. Rather than expressing a character's feelings through subtle actions or hints, he just writes a voice over that spells things out in [...]

    13. A good Battletech book. Stackpole keeps the pages turning, although I think there is often too much happenstance during the battle scenes. Stackpole is good at political intrigue and writes well in a science fiction setting. It is too bad that most of his non-licensed work is in Fantasy because he is much better writing in this milieu.

    14. I just could not get emotionally involved in the characters or story, much as I love Mechwarrior online and Mecha in general. The characters all felt so flat. I just didn't care about any of then. Couldn't finish it because reading it became kind of a chore. Something about Stackpole's style seemed cheesy and superficial. Maybe it's just me

    15. Impresionante novela río de intriga y Ciencia ficción que le da mil vueltas a juego de tronos. Incomprensiblemente solo tuvo una edición en castellano que esta agotadisima y no se ha vuelto a editar.

    16. This was the first Battletech book I read. And boy, I love it since the beginning. When I moved to Tijuana and could not stop buying the rest of the book; I did not get them all, some of them did not like.

    17. Although I started to read this one reluctantly because of my husband's request, I ended up liking it well enough despite the robot armor and the gladiator fights. The political intrigues are quite interesting, and there's even some romance hidden among all the metal flying and laser scoring.

    18. If you are an old-school BattleTech fan/player, you should really enjoy this book and series. (Of note is that the author used the actual game rules to determine some details of the battles fought.) It's a very well-written account of the Fourth Succession Wars and the players therein.

    19. I found my old Battletech books and remembered that this was the one that got me into the series. I have to say, years later, this is still one of the series that I can read over and over, even knowing what is going to happen, I can enjoy every chapter.

    20. This book and the other two books in the trilogy are a very intriguing set. A good introduction to the Inner Sphere side of Battletech.

    21. This series was hard to find. Gonna read it soon! Heard good things about it! if you play the battletech games, read some novel, ok?

    22. Ich meine mich zu erinnern, dass "Coupé" noch am interessantesten war. Insgesamt fand ich die Warrior-Triologie aber irgendwie langatmig.
