Mercenary's Star continues the story of the Gray Death Legion. It picks up 6 months after the ending of Decision at Thunder Rift. The legion are on Galatea looking for work and they have to take the only offer available. A 40 day mission to train a revolutionary army. Of course things don't go according to plan.

Grayson is an interesting character because of his youth and his training. As another character says during the book, he may be a tactical genius, but he knows nothing about people. This

"Mercenary Star" is really dense, but once the characters are introduced and the action gets going, it never stops. It's a bit old-school in terms of the 'mechs used and whatnot, but overall it's very enjoyable.
Zwar nicht so gut wie "Entscheidung am Thunder Rift", aber auch sehr gut.
