Book Description

The Red Battlenauts show no mercy. Roaring out of the darkness of deep space, these ultra-high tech war machines pound the hell out of both sides in a bloody interstellar civil war. No one can even SEE the Reds--no one except Marine Corporal Solomon Scott. Recruited by the hardcore SEAL-like Diamondbacks, Scott becomes a secret weapon in the ultimate struggle for survival. In battle after battle on perilous alien worlds, Scott and the Diamondbacks fight back against the ruthless Reds, desperately holding the line in furious clashes of muscle and metal. But when a face from the past exposes the secrets behind the carnage, a quest for answers becomes a race against time. Because the masters of the Red Battlenauts have more on their minds than a thirst for conquest...and only Solomon Scott can hope to stand against them. In the galaxy's darkest hour, the highest stakes imaginable drive this hero in Battlenaut armor to seize his destiny. But can he overcome a soul-searing betrayal that strikes out of nowhere like the Reds themselves? Only by crushing the monsters of his own dark past can Scott vanquish the forces blasting humanity to the brink of annihilation.

Don't miss this exciting sequel to BEWARE THE BLACK BATTLENAUT by award-winning storyteller Robert T. Jeschonek, a master of hard-hitting science fiction that really packs a punch.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great action! November 16, 2012
By smithy
Format:Kindle Edition
This is a great sci-fi book. I really didn't get into BattleMech but someone recommended this to me. They mentioned an earlier one but I went ahead and read this and what great action! Great ending as well which I hadn't expected. The author definitely has a way of gripping the reader and keeping you engaged all the way to the end. Great read, highly recommend. And I see someone was concerned about format...look it's in paperback as well, but I thought these were supposed to be reviews....

5.0 out of 5 stars Resist the Red Battlenaut November 9, 2012
By SandyK
Format:Kindle Edition
If you are a fan of mecha action or just sci-fi in general, you're going to love this action packed book. There are plenty of exciting battles to keep your hear racing, plus great, fully drawn characters and some really unique and thought provoking science fiction concepts and themes. It's the whole package, just as I'd expect from this accomplished sci-fi author. Robert Jeschonek has written Star Trek and Doctor Who fiction and has a way with "out there" adventures. I loved the first title in this series, Beware the Black Battlenaut, and this one kept up the momentum and left me wanting more. I'm also glad to see that the book is available in paperback as well as a Kindle e-book edition. (Not sure what another reviewer was talking about regarding the lack of a print edition. It's listed right there on the same Amazon product page as the Kindle version.) I highly recommend this thrill ride of a novel for readers who like sci-fi action, relatable characters with depth, and stunning surprises. (I wont't give away the ending, but it's a shocker!) Can't wait for the next book in this series!

A fantastic book with cool full on high-tech BattleMech action and a gripping back story. Fast paced and a real page turner. Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars A "Must-read" for Mech fans November 8, 2012
By Brea
Format:Paperback
Bob Jeschonek has done it again! Full of suspense, action, neat characters, Resist the Red Battlenaut is a must for every BattleMech fan. The Kindle Edition came out a month earlier than the paper edition (as often happens these days), but the paper edition will make a better stocking-stuffer (IMHO).

1.0 out of 5 stars Book please? November 2, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
What is with these "Kindle sequels"? I do not own one nor do I want one. I want a real, live book in my hands. I see many promising series I want to read, until I see the next book in the series is only available on Kindle then I don't waste my money on buying the first books since I will never get to read the series further.
