Book Description

It is 3071, and holy Jihad rages in the Inner Sphere. Safe on worlds claimed two decades earlier, Clan Jade Falcon watches its enemies tear themselves apart. But a new threat is bearing down on the Falcons. Clan Ice Hellion, another of Kerensky's Clans, has traveled the winding Exodus Road to attack its warrior brethren--for while the Clans hunger to conquer the Inner Sphere, they are warriors--and they have little qualm warring amongst themselves for advantage.

Khan Connor Rood of the Ice Hellions knows his Clan is taking a desperate risk. Victory over the Jade Falcons will give the Hellions a place in the Inner Sphere, new worlds to conquer and exploit. It will place them among those rarified Clans who are not trapped in the distant Clan homeworlds. It is a bold plan.

It could easily fail.

For the Jade Falcons have been warned of the Ice Hellions' approach, and powerful and veteran Jade Falcon BattleMechs are turning to meet them. Can Rood and his Hellions defeat the forewarned Falcons? With Jihad raging in front of them and genocidal wars of reaving consuming the Clan homeworlds behind them, can the Hellions survive?

Read The Frost Advances, Part One of the two-part Operation: ICE STORM saga now, and find out.

5.0 out of 5 stars Part One of Three - Great Start! May 15, 2012
By Scipio
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
As a long time battletech fan, I have been avidly waiting to see fiction being published again. Part one of 'Operation Ice Storm' does not disappoint. Part One chronicles the opening stages of the Ice Hellion invasion of the Jade Falcon Occupation zone during the Jihad Era.

The story is told from the Ice Hellion saKhan's point of view,Connor Rood. The mech combat is this part is fantastic. However, my favorite part of this section was viewing the inner workings of Clan Ice Hellion. To my knowledge there has never been any fiction published to discuss the Ice Hellions at length, so it was refreshing to read about the culture, tactics, and inner workings of a clan I knew little to nothing about.

I usually don't stories about clan infighting but the characters in this book are very interesting. I hope there is a sequel.

Fun battle scenes. I never have liked the Ice Weasels, but this Khan is an admirable character. Like all Clan novels, lots of politics, but woven into the fabric of the story well enough to not overwhelm it with intrigue.

This is a good story and interesting reading. I think that it would have been better if a couple of the books had been combined. It seems his books read extremely fast. It's like they have made a book out of a couple of chapters of the story to sell more books.
