There's no rest for a Deathstalker. Mar 31, Gavin rated it liked it Shelves: sci-fi. The Deathstalker series is si-fi in the Star Wars mould. It has evil Empires, AI, Cyborgs, and even a bit of magic! It also has a fairly large POV cast which helps give the world a bit of depth. This 4th Deathstalker book picks up after the events of the original trilogy. Lionstone might have been defeated but that does not mean life for Owen and the other rebel leaders has gotten any easier.
The various factions within the rebellion are all fighting over policy and the nobility who escaped Empr The Deathstalker series is si-fi in the Star Wars mould.
The various factions within the rebellion are all fighting over policy and the nobility who escaped Empress's fall are plotting to gain their own power back. As if that was not enough humanity also faces threats from the AI's of Shub, the Hadenman, and Aliens from the Darkvoid! Both had decent story arcs and all four got to show off their Maze powers again.
The only issue I had was that Owen and Hazel's final mission was a bit dull and that ended this whole book on a low. All had fairly interesting stories set in the cut throat world of Golgatha, the Empire's capital. Captain Silence and his daughter also featured in their own intriguing story arcs. Valentine and Daniel Wolf also appeared and had good story arcs. Surprisingly Daniel's was one of the best bits of the whole book!
All in all I felt like this was a decent read. It was fun to see what the characters from the original trilogy were getting up to in the aftermath of their great rebellion. Life never got any easier for them! The rest of the story was as engaging as the stuff in the original trilogy. Rating: 3. I was heading for 4 stars until Owen and Hazel's trip to the leper planet slowed things down a bit.
Audio Note: Graphic Audio did a great job with the audio for this whole series! View 2 comments. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review. Even reading in order, there are scenes which are completely disjointed from the scene before and after.
There will be a few chapters say, about Owen and Hazel, and their adventure. Next the story will jump into a few chapters about Jack and Ruby and their latest task. So each group of chapters will just drop into a scene and if you don't know what was going on in the previous book, Deathstalker War , then you have no hope of following the story, particularly with the large number of locations, characters, and even species.
While Deathstalker Honor is a very long book, it did cover some important ground about how the empire is recovering after the war. Unfortunately, the war has left much damage. The greedy still want to be in charge and both fight and manipulate to grab power.
These short-sighted folks are basically criminals. But there are other groups trying to take over while the empire is distracted and recovering, the aliens, the Ghost Warriors from Shub and the Hayden men.
Our heroes, Owen and Hazel, Jack and Ruby, and Finlay, are sent like troubleshooters to areas where problems occur. There are also those who don't appreciate their power and would just as soon get rid of them again stupid and short-sighted.
Even with all the fighting and death, they find honor and purpose. Narration: Gildart Jackson does an amazing job with his performance of all these characters' voices. I recognize them all easily now. The story is well told, with great timing for the humor. I also appreciate being able to listen at 1. Aug 08, Rebecca May rated it it was amazing Shelves: favorites. I'm so stunned and amazed that I'm going to skip over outlining the usual, slightly annoying but generally inconsequential faults of Simon R.
Green's Deathstalker Saga and get straight to the point. This book, in all honesty, reminded me why I cannot put the series down. Perhaps because it is one of the two that I have never read, and I have probably over-read the first three, but this book was both an amazement and a refreshment to me. If you believed that Green would have nothing to Wow.
If you believed that Green would have nothing to write about now that the Great Rebellion was over sorry about the spoiler, but if you didn't already know that, you really should go back and read the first three books before even looking at this review , you were so wrong.
From the ashes of the Empire, a new democracy is struggling to emerge. But Humanity is weak, and all too many people, factions and alien races are happy to take advantage of that. There is no other way to describe it other than complete bloody chaos.
Well, actually, a lot more than once, but anyway Perhaps the best thing about this book is that, in helping the reader to get a sense of the almost complete disorder and panic that the Empire is plunged into, Deathstalker Honor moves away from some of the predictability of the earlier books. Halfway through I found myself thinking "Well, at least Green is finding new ways for the hero's and heroine's to solve their problems.
They still all use their Marvellous Maze powers to save the day, but the difference is that, instead of these powers coming easily to them like gifts, the characters now genuinely have to work hard and endure pain and sacrifice to find those powers within themselves - they have to suffer to gain the tools they need to fight for what they believe in.
Aside from the Maze survivors, there are, of course, surprises concerning the ordinary characters in the book, things that even I never expected to happen. Now, to one of the few ordinary characters that I feel obliged to address - Valentine Wolfe.
I think many readers will agree with me when I say that mostly, so far, any despicable action that he has undertaken has been far outweighed by his temperament and amusement value. Do not misunderstand me - This changes now. Valentine has, without a doubt, moved from the mentally unstable and slightly sadistic man that he was to a man that is dangerously insane, sick almost beyond imagination, psychotic, immoral, and wrong to all extents of the word.
I will not reveal to you what deeds he has undertaken to ensure complete hatred of his person by all readers concerned amusement value remains, but it is a shadow of what it was - suffice it to say that within about fifty pages I was horrified to no ends with what Valentine has become. I just have a few aside comments to deal with "the bad guys" of Deathstalker Honor before I move onto "the good guys".
Firstly, I have complete satisfaction with the violent ends of many characters - no, I'm not going to tell you which, only that they deserved it.
