Book Description

May 6 2008 Deathstalker (Book 3)
Fate had made Owen Deathstalker a rebel hero in an empire choked by tyranny. Embracing his warrior lineage for the sake of freedom, he stoked the flames of revolution, gathering the forces that one day must strike against Imperial authority. That day has come. With his valiant compatriots Hazel d''Ark and Jack Ransom, Owen must now bring the uprising to a fiery conclusion. From the rebel strongholds of Mistworld and Virimonde to the Empire''s mighty heart on the planet of Golgotha, the fate of humanity now depends on a clash of arms across light-years of space. But Deathstalker''s desperate cause will need more than an army of courageous fighters to succeed - for the cunning Empress has some evil surprises to unleash.....

5.0 out of 5 stars Action-packed and full of surprises July 4 2006
By Daniel Jolley TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
The seeds of rebellion have been sown, and now - in the third volume chronicling the life and times of Owen Deathstalker - the war finally begins. Deathstalker War is the strongest book in the series thus far, mixing in incredible action and excitement, shocking secrets and betrayals, human drama of the deepest kind, and some completely unexpected subplots. This is just good, old-fashioned space opera. As in the previous two books, Green does let elements of redundancy slip in from time to time, and the big finish is stretched out so much as to be a tad farcical, but this is still a gripping, wonderfully entertaining read.

Before the rebels actually go to war themselves, the war comes to them. On the home world of Golgotha, Empress Lionstone XIV is ravenously eager to put a stop to all the rebel foolishness and make plenty of examples of those who would defy her. Both sides know that four planets will basically determine the victor - Mistworld, refuge of bounty hunters and those who have fallen out of imperial favor , safe haven of espers and clones, and rebel stronghold; Shannon's World, once the ultimate pleasure world but now wrapped in mystery and known as Haceldama, the Field of Blood; Virimonde, an agricultural planet where the Deathstalker (now Owen's nephew) is lord; and of course Golgotha, seat of the imperial government.

The war begins on Mistworld, where Owen Deathstalker, Hazel D'Ark, and a young version of legendary rebel Jack Random, have gone to win the support of the Mistport Council. Aided by a fiendishly dangerous secret weapon called Legion, Empire forces manage to land in force on the planet without detection. The result is war at its ugliest, as Mistworld fights against overwhelming odds for its very survival.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best Si FI books I have ever read May 12 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Mr. Green's Deathstalker series is addictive gripping and just plain fantastic. From the first page to the last you are hooked and eager to want to know what happens next. I actually heard this book in a five volume audio series available on Amazon complete with music and sound effects. The book along with the first two books Deathstalker and Rebellion are read by a series of actors who do a fine job indeed. They make the pages of the printed book come alive and you never want to turn your player off. The characters in this series are some of the best ever created and hats off to Mr. Green for not relying soly on stereo types too often found in Si Fi and Fantasy books. Yes you have those of course, they are a corner stone of any good Si Fi book but Mr. Green has also created characters here which are wild wacky and just plain delicious. My favorite has got to be Valentine Wolf. He is cunning, ruthless and you just got to love his disposition. His lines are some of the best on the audio version and you can tell the actor had a ball with him. This series has lots of surprises along with tons of action. The final scenes in the throne room with the Empress are the best. You just got to love Lionstone even though she is known as the Iron B*****h. The ending was unexpected where she was concerned. Another reason to read this fine series is that it is abit more gear to adults and thus the themes presented are more mature in tone. It was excellent through and through and I hope the remaining books of this series are done in the audio format. Simply loved it. Bravo! Highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars We're halfway done! July 18 2000
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This is prime space opera, done in 1990s fashion. Violence and superhuman powers abound; surprises and conflicts never end. An overstuffed universe full of wonderful science fiction cliches, Green's Deathstalker series is a great escapist frolic. It was wonderful seeing Deathstalker win the war (oh, like you didn't know that was going to happen from the first page?). It was also wonderful seeing Jack Random declare that there would be democracy from now on! In that, Green performs a minor miracle, as very, very few space opera or fantasy writers realize the inherent ridiculousness of an empire in outer space, replete with lords and empresses. But then, that's part of why the stuff sells so well, isn't it? I enjoyed it as much as the next reader, and Green truly does offer up an exciting tale.

Format:Mass Market Paperback
While keeping some nice plot twists alive Mr. Green has borrowed heavily from others in his end of Empire series. He writes of a memorable pleasure world where the semi aware "toys" come alive after an evil power reprograms them in an attempt to make them kill humans. This world becomes a nightmare of death where some of the "good" toys continue to struggle against the majority of evil ones and try to advance their newfound awareness. While other parts of the book are unsurprising and average there are some nicely crafted plot devices and imagry which make the whole book worth reading. If you liked the Eternal Emperor series and sci fi in general then this book will be a nice read for you

Space opera doesn't get any better than this. With his grand, sweeping style, his memorable characters, his complex and involving storyline, his suspenseful and riveting action sequences, and his absolute mastery of the art of drama, Simon R. Green has truly shaped a masterpiece of modern fiction. Deathstalker War is the third in a series of five, and ends the original war, though it leaves quite enough loose ends for future books. A reader could stop with this book, but who would want to?
