A Rending of Falcons, by Victor Milán, is the twenty-sixth novel in the MechWarrior: Dark Age series. It was first published in June 2007 by Roc Books and was later republished in June 2022 by Catalyst Game Labs as a BattleTech Legends title.

The novel continues Malvina Hazen's storyline begun in Flight of the Falcon and Blood of the Isle, and chronicles the "Rending" (civil war) within Clan Jade Falcon and Hazen's ascension to the Khanship of that Clan.

From the Back Cover[edit]

Jade Falcon Galaxy Commander Malvina Hazen and her warriors are encamped on the planet Skye in their Occupation Zone, overseeing the consolidation of power on the worlds they've wrested from The Republic. When a ship appears at Skye's jump point and its commander declares a Trial of Possession for the wartime doctrine he claims Malvina stole from Clan Hell's Horses, Malvina sees her vision unfolding: she agrees to single BattleMech combat.

Malvina emerges from the fray victorious—and inspired to ride her growing reputation into Clan Jade Falcon's halls of power. But her bold actions may herald the beginning of a civil war that could unmake not simply her own Clan, but the entire Clan way of life.
