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.
