Product Description

Review

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.

Format: Hardcover
After seven previous novels totaling thousands of pages, two intergalactic revolutions, the deaths of billions of people across a vast spectrum of home worlds, the apocalyptic threat of two all-but-unstoppable alien forces, and heaven only knows how many humorous remarks by a succession of over-the-top characters, the Deathstalker saga finally comes to an end, I am sad to report, in Deathstalker Coda. I'm hoping Simon R. Green will pull another Deathstalker rabbit out of his hat at some point, but it really looks like Deathstalker Coda brings one of the most frolicking space opera series of all time to its completion. It should come as no surprise when I suggest to you that you shouldn't start your Deathstalker journey here - at a minimum, you should first read Deathstalker Legacy and Deathstalker Return because those two novels chronicle the final chapter in the life of the universe's greatest hero. For the full back-story to the climactic events of Deathstalker Coda, however, you really should read all of the Deathstalker novels. I promise it won't hurt a bit, as they are all incredibly entertaining and quite addictive.

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.

A great end to the Deathstalker books, ties up alot of mysteries, plenty of action and is just as good as the other books. Some parts did seem a bit short but I guess it helped keep the action flowing and there was plenty of action available.
One of my favorite series and this is as good an ending as I was expecting.

At last, after eight books, Simon Green wraps up the Deathstalker series. This second saga has not, for me, matched up to the first. Its characters and story did not grip me the way the first saga did. I think part of the problem was that Green wrapped up the majority of his mythology in Deathstalker Destiny, leaving only the Terror as the single hanging plot strand. Knowing that he couldn't revolve a whole further trilogy around just the Terror, he created a further story around it, involving Finn Durandal and the rebellion against him, which never quite clicked for me.

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.

Format: Paperback
This third instalment of Simon R Greens latest deathstalker books provides as much 'over the top' gung-ho mayhem and downright fun as the previous novels.
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.
