Wow. Well. I'm so stunned and amazed that I'm going to skip over outlining the usual, slightly annoying but generally inconsequential faults of Simon R. Green's Deathstalker Saga and get straight to the point.

This book, in all honesty, reminded me why I cannot put the series down. Perhaps because it is one of the two that I have never read, and I have probably over-read the first three, but this book was both an amazement and a refreshment to me.

If you believed that Green would have nothing to...more

Simon R. Green has done it again! From the ass kicking characters to the gritty battles, this was one book that I couldn't put down. A must read for fans of the space opera genre.

#4 Owen Deathstalker Sci Fi series

Having read books 1, 2 & 3 (each 500+ pages) and enjoying each of them very much, I did quit reading at page 176.

Simon R. Green is a favorite author. His Nightside UF series is AWESOME (approx. 200 pages) as is his Ghost series. His characters are unique -- that's the understatement of the year! His plots are fast-moving, exciting, unpredictable and rip roaring fun.

I'm not a sci fi fan, but wanted to read more of his books. After 1,500 pages...more
well well a return to form! after the previous book which was a bit of a let down this a return to form with more battles then you can shake a stick at! my only criticism is on over use of maze powers to win in the end, however if you have read this far in the series its likely that you are not bothered by this, so i would recommend this book too you!!

Geez this took forever to get through. Between the slow beginning and the sheer length of the book, that's why I gave this 4 stars instead of 5. The ending was quite good and there were some memorable parts, but because of the slow parts, I had to knock off a star.
This is one of the best Science Fiction series' ever written. It goes beyond laser and spaceships and questions things like honor, morality, right and wrong, love, and how long you can serve evil masters in good conscience. A must read for every sci-fi fan.

Back to the old Deathstalker feel! I could barely put this one down, unlike the previous (Deathstalker War) which was a quite a slog. Lots of violence and some intrigue and more jumping between quite a few ass-kicking characters.
Actually, I do remember reading this far in the series. Except it was all such similar drivel they kind of all blend together. I want my teenage years back. I'd probably read Philip K Dick if I had it all to do over again.
As is true of the other books in the series- it's trash. Nonetheless, I'm apparently addicted to the things, and will read the rest of the series. I know not why. :)
Downloading the 1st 3 hours of the Graphicaudio version.

Kinda grisly! This is actually the 4th Deathstalker book, but the first Graphicaudio one.

Woof woof woof....damn I've read some howlers...but this....hmmm...okay it isn't the worst but I want the afternoon it took back.... T_T
There is so much going on in this series, I reread these books and enjoy them everytime. Amazing charaters and world.

I appear to have hit my limit of long, long, long Simon Green space operas, at least for the moment!
The rebellion is over. The good guys won. Now what? Certainly no peace or rest for Owen.
It was okay. Far from the peak of the series but still a little fun.

I will not read more of this space opera. I no longer care!

Simon Richard Green is a British science fiction and fantasy-author. He holds a degree in Modern English and American Literature from the University of Leicester. His first publication was in 1979.

His Deathstalker series is partly a parody of the usual space-opera of the 1950s, told with sovereign disregard of the rules of probability, while being at the same time extremely bloodthirsty.

“I take it you know my companion?"
Oh,yes!" said Savage, his smile disappearing. "We know all about Ruby Journey. Please don't let her kill anyone important. Or set fire to anything."
Your reputation precedes you," Random said dryly to Ruby.”
