By Daniel Jolley HALL OF FAME TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
A part of me didn't want to read this book. Deathstalker Destiny is the fifth and final installment in the life and times of Owen Deathstalker. I've been through a lot with the main characters of this Deathstalker series. Heck, we overthrew a seemingly impervious evil Empire, liberated worlds, saved great big chunks of humanity time and time again, and overcame superhuman enemies the likes of which I had never dreamed of. Now, it's all coming to an end. It wouldn't be so bad if there weren't this really depressing prophecy hanging over Owen Deathstalker's head since early in the first novel - Owen Deathstalker, the greatest kind of hero, the only honorable aristocrat from a court of power-hungry villains, the last great hope of humanity itself predicted to die alone far from his friends without ever coming to know the love that helped drive him.
Things certainly aren't going too well as the book opens. The Empire is still mightily struggling internally to develop an effective form of government after the end of the rebellion; seemingly all of humanity's enemies are attacking almost everywhere in force- the rogue AI of Shub, the self-augmented Hadenmen, and some kind of souped-up giant insects; a far greater enemy called the Recreated is now on its way; and the worst plague in history is decimating one planet after another. Owen Deathstalker doesn't have time to think of these things, though.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good ending to a brilliant series 13 Aug 1999
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
I am sure that all who are reading this review will agree that the Deathstalker Epic has been one of the most imaginative and exciting series to be published in the Science Fiction genre in the last few years. It was therefore with some apprehension that I picked up and read Deathstalker Destiny, wondering how the ending could possibly do justice to the previous four books. I am glad to say that once again Simon R Greene has not disappointed. He manages to conclude with as much blood, intensity and panache as was so prevalent in the first three books, but which, I felt, was slightly missing from the fourth. My one dissatisfaction was that he tied all the loose ends together a little too neatly. However he still managed to keep the ending somewhat of a surprise. Altogether a fitting end to one of the most enjoyable series I have ever read.

4.0 out of 5 stars Bloody, interesting, but badly written 15 May 2000
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
Green's constant use of certain phrases is remarkable: "His/her sword arm rose and fell"; "He was soaked in blood, some/none of his/hers". It implies laziness...
Character is a different matter, as he gives his characters realistic flaws, and realistic relationships. They joke, mourn and complain. They do tend to shy away from the fat that they have killed seemingly thousands of people, ut other than that, they are well developed and interesting.
The same goes for the plot, which is very neatly tied up; perhaps a little too neatly, but nonetheless, it has some very good moments.
Overall, I enjoyed this book. The plot and the characters are well developed, the blood flows freely, and the politcal asect well defined.
