Note: This review contains spoilers, so don’t read it unless you've read Coda (and the previous books) or don’t care about spoilers.

Before I say anything else, I just want to make it clear – despite my many complaints, I do love this book. It is a very worthy ending to the series, enjoyable… but I just don’t think that it is one of those books you finish, leap up and down and wish there was a six star rating instead of five.

From the start, Green makes it clear that this book is not about Owen De

And so ends the tale of the Deathstalkers and their varied companions. A fitting end with all characters given their fair share of the story. Even though it seems as if Mr. Green has left room for future stories in the Deathstalker universe, I hope he chooses NOT to return. This novel has wrapped up the loose ends and while I hate to never see these characters again-- it's only fair that they are now allowed to rest. Deathstalker luck is supposedly always bad, however, so we'll see!
This is the last of the Deathstalker series.
It is done perfectly and I have to wonder if Mr Green had figured out every plot before putting ink to paper.

Everything fell into place with Deathstalker Coda. And it was done magificently. Green is the best Sci-fi writer in my eyes, and the Deathstalker series is the best of the best. This series is witty, bloody and has the best lines EVER.

Owen and Hazel...the perect characters for a perfect series.
Great, great, series. This far into it I was still impressed and couldn't put it down and thats saying a lot for a series of like six or seven books.
Couldn't resist to see what happens to some interesting characters, but was again left wondering why I bothered.
Notice the rating? Yup.

Stephen King wrote, in his book On Writing, about some jackass that used to write potboilers. His method was simple - everytime you get stuck - spin the WHEEL OF DESTINY and it would kick out a plot point.

I'm pretty sure this guys is that jackass's grandson. After finishing this - the last in the series, I want go back in time with A) a map to Simon Green's grandfather house in general and his testicles in particular and B) a ball-peen hammer. That's the only way to get b
I wanted to wait to review this until I had read the whole series. And now I am sad because it is all done. I really enjoyed this series a lot.
The character development had just the right balance and the writing style has a really good flow.
One of my favorite books is Santiago by Mike Resnick and if you have ever read that then definitely give Death stalker a try!
"The conclusion to the Deathstalker series gives us not one, but TWO Deathstalkers running around being so very Deathstalkerish. I really liked this as an ending to the series. Our heroes all get to finally embrace their power, evil is brought low, and the central romance between Hazel and Owen is finally resolved. Mostly. She STILL doesn't say she loves him outloud. I enjoyed Green's perspective on time travel and seeing so many of the series's mysteries come to (usually surprising) resolution"

The last in the galaxy-spanning Deathstalker epic.

Just like every other book he's written in this outstanding series, Simon R. Green's "Deathstalker Coda" DELIVERS. One liners in the face of impending doom, friends and enemies swapping roles, and more action than you can shake a plasma rifle at.

If you're going to read this, don't cheat yourself. Read the rest of the series first.

"Shandrakor! Shandrakor!"
It has to much of a force campy thing going one with it every in really serious moment and this author likes to repeat almost everything and it hates my intelligence.
An amazing ending ( or new beginning) for Owen and Hazel, two of my favorite characters ever!!
It's a crazy, weird ending but I think in this case it works.
The end. I'll miss the Deathstalker clan and their bad luck.
Great ending to an engrossing series

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.
