Well, what to say about this one?

For a start, I just want to warn people not to read this book unless you already own the next and it is readily available. I thought I could handle waiting a while for the last, but the unbelievable spoiler in the last sentence of this book made it impossible for me to wait for the next with any semblance of calm.

By the way, I just have to say it - it's so hilarious, the ship that the five main characters stole turned out to be an alien porn-smuggler. :D *face-p

"Lewis Deathstalker's adventures continue satisyingly along the path Deathstalker Legacy laid out, with the usual satisfying Green twists and turnabouts. Outlawed and on the run, Lewis and his companions return to the places where the survivors of Owen's time hide and slowly pick up clues, all of which guide them to the Madness Maze. The Empire crumbles and finally falls into Finn Durandal's clutches. A plucky reporter rescues King Douglas at his execution with the help of the last true paragon. ...more

The series continues to be a bloated, redundant, sometimes fun, sword and laser story. Green seems to add a little mass-slaughter to every one of his stories, but the Lewis stories seem to take it to another level.

Green must also have a very pessimistic view of people, because in his worlds, people are sheeple who go along with any kind of atrocity as long as they aren't the ones being hurt. Finn Durandal, one bad guy in this society is able to far too easily manipulate himself into power. His

Another fun romp, though this particular novel has some darker undertones. The twist at the end would have been awesome-- had I not accidentally ruined it for myself when I was trying to update the page count on Goodreads! UGH!

More Owen Deathstalker is always a good thing. I enjoyed the viewpoint of history in this, how some heroes of the earlier novels were remembered and others forgotten.

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.
