Unique story about mech design.

The story is about mech building/engineering. MC wants to become mech designer he's got the ambition and drive, but he doesn't have the most important thing money. The story is well written and is mostly focused on the mech building. There is not too much fighting (like single chapter and it's mostly mech testing) and it's not action paced. Just a guy with a small factory, design software and a dream. It's nice to have a story like that it may not appeal to the larger audience, but i'd like to be read by some people that'll appreciate something new and unique.

Great Mech Novel!!!

I am loving this new take on Mech Novels! I've seen quite a few Mech/Battlesuit anime and novels where it's all so futuristic and action packed that I kind of lose sight of the novelty of the machines themselves and by extension my interest/understanding of the plot of the story. Like if they suddenly introduce or hint at the machines having a life, magic, influence, or consousness of their own to manipulate or effect the pilot/user or the world around them...

HOWEVER, this story is nothing like that and I am quite enjoying the situation the MC finds himself in where their are many futuristic battlesuits and corresponding high-tech companies designing them so he decides to build and redesign old timey (low tech) battle suits with the different modern ideas, inventions and education that he has access to since their time!

I find it a real joy to read because of the suprise and realistic factor provided by the scenario and concept of combining ideas and parts from different eras into a completely new and improved whole!

I really wanted to love it but the story doesn't exactly reach far enough. This novel is perhaps a perfect excuse for design porn. It's something of a shame that the author doesn't go there.

The most audacious madman in the solar system dies giving his estranged son the most outrageous of bequests a system forged of cutting edge magic and science to make what ever his life's goal is a foregone conclusion of greatness.(Epic start)

And he spends it thumbing a catalog and making kit bash mods.(not so epic arc)


Call it a lack of bravery, the author didn't have the MC "invent" any of the arc one source material. Not even one failed design in a flashback, no sketches, no notes...... makes for a shallow character instead of even a hobby designer to start with.
