More than two centuries ago, angry and grief-stricken after losing Owen Deathstalker, Hazel d’Ark entered the Madness Maze—which fed off her raw emotions and transformed her into The Terror, a force capable of devouring galaxies. To stop her, the recently resurrected Owen must use the powers he gained during his own stay in the Madness Maze—and go back in time to prevent Hazel’s transformation.

Now, without Owen to guide him, Lewis Deathstalker has no choice but to assume command of an Imperial fleet loyal to the Deathstalker legacy and lead it to victory over Finn Durandal, the despot who seized the throne. Lewis knows that he has been branded a traitor by the Empire. But when he learns that Finn has executed his entire family, his mission to overthrow his former friend’s tyranny is secondary to his desire for revenge…

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
English author Simon R. Green's popular Deathstalker saga (Deathstalker Rebellion, Deathstalker War, et al.) -- a deliciously over-the-top space opera that features larger-than-life characters like Owen Deathstalker, Hazel d'Ark, Captain John Silence, and Jenny Psycho -- comes to its climactic conclusion in Deathstalker Coda, in which Owen and his last living descendant must save humankind once and for all.

While young Lewis Deathstalker, a descendant of the legendary "savior of humanity," fights to overthrow a tyrannical emperor who murdered practically the entire Deathstalker clan, Owen Deathstalker travels back in time to try to find out how the love of his life, Hazel d'Ark, was transformed into the Terror, a nightmarish entity that is destroying entire worlds. As Lewis travels throughout the galactic empire gathering an army of unlikely allies -- his visits take him from the crime-ridden streets of Mistworld and the monster-infested jungles of Shandrakor to his devastated home planet of Virimonde -- the godlike Owen, who has survived the Madness Maze and is in the process of coming to grips with his transcendent abilities, goes back to the very birthplace of humanity.

Green's fiction is noteworthy for its plethora of larger-than-life characters, not only in the Deathstalker saga but also his hard-boiled Nightside novels (Something from the Nightside, Agents of Light and Darkness, et al.) that feature the unforgettably wild characters Shotgun Suzie and Razor Eddie. Fans of fantastical fiction who like their characters super-sized and their action fast and furious should definitely check out Green's Deathstalker sequence -- escapist literature at its best! Paul Goat Allen

Publishers Weekly
Bestseller Green's wild conclusion to his Deathstalker saga picks up moments after the cliffhanger ending of Deathstalker Return (2004). Unjustly outlawed Lewis Deathstalker has just brought his ancestor Owen back from the dead to battle the multidimensional, planet-devouring Terror. Meanwhile, Lewis himself tries to assemble and lead a space fleet against the vile minions of usurper Emperor Finn Durandal. In addition, in chapters interrupting Owen's pursuit through time and Lewis's jaunts through space, former Emperor Douglass Campbell must pull himself together to mastermind a rebellion in Finn's capital city. This listing of major plot threads doesn't begin to suggest the full story's feverish complexity. Fortunately, when the stage gets too crowded, the author kills off a few supporting characters, not to mention millions of faceless extras. In some ways, this SF novel resembles mid-grade anime-much better on explosions and mortal combat than characterization; however, it does tie up the series' loose ends coherently. Moreover, even if the major characters are legends, larger and stranger than lifesize, Green's ingenuity and sarcastic prose style keep readers from getting grossed out by the bloodshed or bored by tired space opera theatrics. He knows the action is so far over the top that it almost slips into farce, but he usually manages to keep his balance, arms waving frantically, right on the edge. Agent, Joshua Bilmes.

    Final Conflicts Resolved

    SRG ties up all the loose ends nicely. He says that this is the last Deathstalker book, but leaves the door open to continue. Do you believe him? I have read all of the Deathstalker novels and can't believe that there will be no more. It's like loosing an old friend. I guess I'll just move to the Nightside.
