Coda bounds forward at a terrific pace. His prose sparkles with wit, great dialogue and a genuine sense of place. Coda retains the sense of adventure and high spirits that so many epics lose. (Richard Corbett SFX) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

As this novel opens, more than two centuries have passed since Owen Deathstalker, quiet historian turned intergalactic hero, and his band of unforgettable rebels overthrew the despicable Empress Lionstone XIV, stopped the galaxy-destroying power of a mysterious alien force called The Revenant, and ushered in (after a lot more fighting) a new era of peace throughout the galaxy. The golden age ended, however, when the power-hungry Finn Durandal betrayed basically everyone and usurped the throne from the rightful King Douglas.Read more ›
One of my favorite series and this is as good an ending as I was expecting.
This book isn't particularly better than the others in the trilogy, but I've given it one extra star because it does end the series so perfectly. All the remaining loose ends are finally wrapped up, there are still a few neat surprises and easter eggs in store, and the ending was surprisingly moving and even beautiful. I absolutely have to give Green credit for the incredible tale he has spun.
Even so, I still maintain that this second trilogy was a slight disappointment based on my love of the first saga. But, wouldn't you know it, at the end I nearly cried, and now I'm sad that it's all over and there's no more to read. While most people enjoy Deathstalker purely on a basic level (and let's face it, it is damn good fun) it has deeply affected me and sucked me right into its universe, where I was immersed for a long time. I could not be more happy with the way everything was resolved, and with each character's final fate.
Thank you, Simon Green, for giving me the pleasure of sharing in your imagination and allowing me to enjoy a reading experience in a way that I rarely do. Long live the Deathstalker Clan.
The 'Blessed Owen' has returned and is travelling back through time to try and stop The Terror, aka Hazel D'Ark his former love. The Emporer Finn is meeting opposition to his evil regime and is trying to create a Clone army to counteract the rebellion (Hmmmm...wonder where that idea came from). Meanwhile resistence is coming from the previous ruler, Douglas and his former soldier Stuart along with Lewis Deathstalker and his entourage.
Simon R Green is a master at combining a fast paced adventure story with a good balance of humour. This is a 'must buy' for any fan of his.
