Does the jumpship on page 36 look like a droopy-eyed happy fish to anyone else? Posted Image

I like Chloe more then him with all his numbers and stuff but one thing about her commander is right, a strafeing run with an Overlord, concidering the precission of BT weapons of that time, is never a "precision" strike and I have to agree with the commander that the risk to civilains is far to high.

As for the quality of writing, BT novels where never high literature but it gets the emotional part of Chloe across well enough to have any kind of feelings about the person that will most likely become your mother in the MW5 game and the reason for why she wants her own unit.

I would recommend you Calibre as a free E-Book reader over PDF files as you have much more options to adjust the reading experiance to where you can read the text best. Be it on you PC or phone. You can adjust Fonts, sizes, length of lines and lots more.

PDF offers only a fixed page view that can, depending of who made it and on your screen size be realy annoying to read smoothly.

I was also only ready PDF files until now because I had to deal with PDFs on a regular basis for print but I just picked up Calibre and its realy much better for reading. Just give it a try, its free.

Click the "Download Now" link once it's done converting for you. Voilà.

I'd post my own converted PDF but I'm pretty sure some one would bring the legal voodoo.


Note: URL of file updated for book 2.

I am enjoying these. Not high literature, I agree with Nesutizale, but enjoyable nonetheless. I'm more interested to get into MW5's story than I was before these novellas :)

i'll admit I've not read them yet. are they as good as the faction war stories each phase?

*will I miss easter eggs in MW5 if I've not heard the story from someone who actually read these before I play?

Hard to tell if you miss out on easter eggs but I think the story is aimed more to get newcommers into the BT Background story and to make you care about your parents that you will loose in the beginning of MW5.
You will also most likely get to know the crew better and have a connection to the ship and your first mech.

My guess is the Shadow Hawk that you play first is your Mothers for example.
