Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Bestseller Green's latest overstuffed entry in his Deathstalker epic (after 2003's Deathstalker Legacy) tests our heroes to the limit as they seek the supposedly dead Owen Deathstalker, for they believe that only he can turn back the oncoming Terror, an evil and unstoppable force bent on destroying all the worlds in its path. Lewis Deathstalker, descendant of the Beloved Owen, on the lam with his renegade companions, runs into adventure after adventure as he seeks Owen on a variety of planets. Their archenemy, former Paragon Finn Durandal, dogs them every step of the way as he seizes power, overthrows King Douglas and dismantles the Golden Age that Owen helped create 200 years earlier. Others seek to overthrow the nasty Durandal, including the enigmatic robots of Shub, Douglas (who's not the broken man he appears to be), Paragon Emma Steel and Steel's unlikely ally, gun-toting girl reporter Nina Malapert. Green ably juggles elements of sword and sorcery, high fantasy, humorous quest and SF, with homages to authors such as Moorcock, Adams, Cordwainer Smith and Zelazny. Amazing coincidences, or the sudden appearance of powerful, supposedly long-dead heroes who give advice, save the day a few too many times, blunting the impact of the characters' actions, but it's a fun, twisty romp with surprises around every corner. (Jan. 6) Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.

    Epic science fiction

    The second Empire was bright and good, with human, AI, esper and alien living together in harmony. On the empire¿s capital world, King Douglas appointed Lewis Deathstalker as the King¿s Champion much to the dismay of Finn Durandal who expected the appointment. Finn managed to trump up charges against Lewis and become the King¿s Champion but Deathstalker escaped along with Douglas¿s fiancée.<P> They escape in a stolen spaceship along with a con artist thief, a sociopathic gladiator and Saturday the replitoid. These five outlaws must find a way to stop Finn¿s growing reign of terror as he consolidates his power. Their final destination after a series of adventures is the world of Haden where Lewis must travel to the center of the Madness Maze in the hopes of bringing his illustrious ancestor Owen Deathstalker back from the dead. Only he can stop Finn and the terror, a phenomenon that is destroying all inhabited worlds.<P> Fans of the various Star Wars and Star Trek novels are going to love Simon R. Green¿s epic science fiction series. There is plenty of action and adventure but basically DEATHSTALKER RETURN is a story about people, men and women who rise to the occasion and become heroes vs. those who take advantage of a situation and become villains. The story is told from both points of views so readers understand what is going on in the minds and hearts of the characters at all times. There is going to be another book in the series because there is one very big question that must be answered and the author cleverly sets it up with the last sentence of the last page.<P> Harriet Klausner

    A great book for Deathstalker fans

    I first become hooked on the Deathstalker series 4 years ago. Since then I have read every book in the series. I was very much surprised when looking for a good book to read in the S.F. section of Barnes and Noble store a new hard cover book titled - Deathstalker Return. I immediately started to read the first few pages and was again reintroduced into the Deathstalker world. The new characters are interesting with a nice blend of some of the old characters who are still living. I am anxiously awaiting the next book in the Deathstalker series.
