With nothing to lose, only he had the courage to take up arms against Queen Lionstone XIV. New York Times bestselling author Simon R. Green continues his compelling space opera with the second novel in the Deathstalker series.Owen Deathstalker—outlawed, with a price on his head and the blood of a mighty warrior lineage in his veins—had no choice but to embrace a dangerous destiny.   Now as he gathers his unlikely allies—the legendary washed-up hero Jack Random, the beautiful pirate Hazel d’Arc, the original Deathstalker long since presumed dead, and the alien Hadenmen whose purposes no human can discern—the eyes of the downtrodden are upon him while the freedom of a galaxy hangs in the balance…

. Green is the New York Times bestselling author of the Secret Histories Novels, the Novels of the Nightside, the Ghost Finders series, and the Deathstalker series. Simon R

“Green’s books are filled with larger-than-life, in-your-face heroes and heroines…There’s a little bit of everything in them: fighting, treachery, intrigue, romance, and lots of good plain fun.”—SF Site “The action is fast and frantic, even compelling.”—Locus

"Let's get this slightly campy rebellion started" according to Daniel Jolley. While this second entry in the life and times of Owen Deathstalker retains all of the action and fun of the first novel, an element of camp seems to have set in to make the series less fulfilling. Greene, every so often, seems to set the story aside momentarily in an effort to be funny, and the introduction of characters such as Half a Man indicates to me that Greene has decided to embrace some of the campiness of space opera and ju. Better in many ways than the original Deathstalker book DocRWM Green excells himself with this second installment in the Owen Deathstalker saga. Definitely a Space Opera with very obvious sword and swashbuckling influences, this book helps transform Owen Deathstalker and his band into characters of interest.. Ghostwolf said Written by an author with Half a Brain. I am beginning to think readers are just desperate for some semblance of a space opera book to like books such as this. It probably should have been "Written by an author with Half a Brain" according to Ghostwolf. I am beginning to think readers are just desperate for some semblance of a space opera book to like books such as this. It probably should have been 250 pages, not 500. A lot of time, the author just goes on and on and on.It seems every seen has a pairing of a man and woman, and they just bicker back and forth for a 100 pages. There are some good parts, but out of the 500 pages, you may get 75 pages worth reading.Some of the gripes:. 50 pages, not 500.
