Illusions of Victory
In his eighth novel overall, and fifth in the BattleTech property, Loren L. Coleman visits Solaris VII, the Game World, where entertainment is king, money is power, and MechWarriors from every corner of the Inner Sphere come to make a name for themselves in the ultimate sporting event.
Michael Searcy has worked his way up the ranking on Solaris VII, becoming a valued commodity in the games. He plays the angles, and can put on a show as well as a good fight. But now, the ancient grudges pitting warriors against each other have spilled out of the arena–moving into the streets in all-out war.
