And for a book called Deathstalker Rebellion, in a series called Deathstalker, Owen Deathstalker is barely in the book for a small part at the very beginning. Based on the tacked-on “Stay Tuned for Scenes from Deathstalksr Next Episode” ending, it appears that’s not going to change much in the next deathstalked, either. Meanwhile forcing the reader to wait long stretches between appearances of what we thought were the main characters, only SRG seems rebeellion have lost all interest in them?
Strange as the story is called Death-stalker, it does not seem to focus much on the role of Owen Death-stalker, perhaps this will change in the third book.
Just wish the description had been more accurate. There is literally always action, always something happening. I love the humor in these books. Return to Book Page. Rebe,lion characters are so entertaining, and say the most hilarious things to one another that it really does make up for the fact that the book is not really all that well written.
The way everybody tries to out-bad-ass one another is, frankly, exhausting.
I won’t say much more about the plot of the book – only that I commend Green for how utterly creepy he managed to make the parts of the book pertaining to Captain Silence, Investigator Cross and Security Officer Stelmach. Believe me, this is the perfect space opera you where looking for.
I am shocked by a couple of the attendees. Owen and his allies try to combine their forces with those of the regular rebellion and underground. A bit of a drop-off from the first one, but really it’s a whole lot more of the same. Even if I planned to read a lot longer, I find myself stopping when I hit a chapter point simply because they’re so rare.

Aug 24, Jon West rated it liked it. Having recently finished Deathstalker, I immediately went on to book 2, Death stalker Rebellion. His superb talent as a writer keeps the characters and plot lines very clear in your mind, despite the deathstapker and frequent plot upheavals.
Another new character we get introduced to is the legendary Half-a-Man. It’s more of the same sort of thing. Looking forward to the next instalment of the series.
New characters are introduce and old favorite are being wonderfully fleshed out with new story angles, plot twist and subtle world building being sprinkle here and there.

Though the series is about Owen Deathstalker, he is more in the background in this book.

I tell myself I’m going to stay away, but you and I already know I’m going to get my hands on book 3 in the series and take another hit of this series – the only question is when.
The book, frankly, gets quite grim and dark on occasion. Okay, the main characters are tremendously over-powered, and the language is at times very repetitive, and I kind of loathe Simon R.
The chapters are so long that you can’t even find a comfortable stopping deathxtalker. But once again I recommend both versions, as they both have their merits. When I finish this second novel I felt like naturally continuing onto the next one, and at more than pages for each book, keeping me reading without pause is an impressive feat by the author. What a load of tosh!
His Deathstalker series is partly a parody of the usual space-opera of the s, told with sovereign disregard of the rules of probability, while being at the same time extremely bloodthirsty.
