Having followed the Deathstalkers from Owens outlawing to the hunt to find him, I can say that this book keeps the same high standard as the others. Deathstalker luck continues to run its course as the hunt for Owen continues, Finn continues his quest to destroy the Golden age of humanity, Douglas notices that not everything is as he thought and the paragon Emma Steel continues to hunt the bad guys. And we get a glimpse of what a maze altered person is truly capable of.
All this goes on with the usual Simon Green humour. I've never read any books in which you're having such fun reading about the heroes facing impossible odds and living to tell the tale. When the pace lets up for you to catch your breath, it picks up again and drags you along by the scruff of your neck, driving you towards the end. And as for the ending... there's a very nice twist at the very end. You'll be begging for more. I can't wait for the next one.

Two hundred years have passed since Owen Deathstalker and his companions overthrew a corrupt Empire and saved humanity from the seemingly insurmountable threat of the Recreated. Owen Deathstalker, Hazel D'Ark, Jack Random, Ruby Journey - they are just legends now, the details of their exploits removed from the historical record because the new king and queen thought that the people would be more inspired by legend than a history that revealed their human weaknesses. Thanks to Owen, the Empire did indeed enter into a Golden Age, the enemies of Humanity either defeated or incorporated as newly established allies. Now that great era of peace and interspecies cooperation is falling apart, eaten away from within by a power-hungry former enforcer of justice and threatened from without by the prophesied arrival of the Terror. Owen Deathstalker warned of the coming danger in his final message, and now everyone in the Empire looks to him to return and save the day once again, for legend decrees that he alone can defeat the apocalyptic menace of the Terror.
Owen Deathstalker's story was told over the course of five incredibly exciting novels. Deathstalker Legacy took up the story two hundred years later, introducing us to a new Deathstalker in Lewis, a noble Paragon who was named King Douglas' Champion and then branded a traitor when he ran off with the king's intended bride Jesamine Flowers. Outlawed just like his famous predecessor, Lewis eventually teamed up with a most unusual team of individuals and set off to find - he hoped - the blessed Owen Deathstalker. The new gang of heroes does not even begin to compare with the legendary heroes of the past.

Well. Where to start... the 8th book in the Deathstalker cycle is excellent, the reintroduction of old characters gives new life to the book and allows a better association with the characters.
The story is set immediately after Legacy and is essentially split into two parts: Lewis & co., and Finn/Douglas.
This book will keep Simon R Green fans happy. Death and villainy, heroism and matyrdom - its all in there. Finn kinda becomes the guy Dram always wanted to be whilst Lewis gets what he always wanted...
Pretty much everything you wanted to know at the end of Deathstalker Destiny is revealed although the book ends with an excellent cliff hanger that lets you know the final book will be a humdinger.
In short - I loved it. I can barely wait for Deathstalker Coda. This book enriches the entire series - its not often you can say that on book 8!

Although Deathstalker Return is an improvement over Deathstalker Legacy, I still found it to be lacking something. It seems to me that some of the spark, some of the magic, of the first Deathstalker saga has gone. Simon Green still has a great imagination and wit, but I'm just not finding myself to be as engrossed in this saga as in the first one, which had me on the edge of my seat more often than not. This series is taking me a lot more "through the motions".

There is more action and adventure this time around, so it at least attempts to be more like its old self. Lewis Deathstalker travels a similar path to his ancestor Owen in order to the find the legend himself and somehow bring him back. But it isn't as entertaining the second time around. This new cast of characters haven't clicked with me the way the first lot did, and I think the Terror has been vastly under-used so far in the series. It's a dimension-spanning world-eater and yet we have only seen it twice in two books. We didn't see the Recreated till late in the first saga, true, but I still felt their sense of menace, while I feel very little presently for the Terror.

That said, this book IS better than its predecessor, and it did have its moments, along with a mind-blowing ending which Green has successfully managed to keep me hooked to the series with. I truly hope that Green pulls out all the stops in the last volume of his great series and makes all of what he has achieved up to now worth it.
