Thankfully, there is humor, and I care about some characters or I’d give up. This series is like crack; seriously addicting! Thank god I figured it out on book 2, instead of agonizing and hoping until book 5, like I did with Game of Thrones- I have never wanted to burn a book before in my life, but GoT book 5 came close.
Plenty of characters both sympathetic and un are good fighters, take active joy in combat, are willing to assassinate other people, etc etc etc, and there’s lots of fight scenes, but Green never makes the violence pretty or sexy, and tries hard to show all the ugly and painful sides of warfare, even necessary warfare. And, finally, the author does, on occasion, get the humour right.
The vast majority of action is centred on other characters. Oct 28, Nanci rated it liked it. Enjoyable story, if you enjoyed the first, this will satisfy.
Deathstalker Rebellion (Deathstalker, #2) by Simon R. Green
The beginning has Lionstone meeting with her court and all the families are trying to put themselves in the best position. 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.
I was on my way to the toilet, and if anything, my need is even worse now than it was. I love dwathstalker humor in these books. There are many secondary kind of characters from the first Deathstalker that make a repeat appearance in Deathstalker Rebellion.
I couldn’t finish the thing; was proud for enduring through pages of the monstrosity. Really like this story. Can’t wait to see what happens next!
I think I would have liked to see more dimensions to The Empress, and there were relationship issues between a few people that I didn’t wholly agree with, but overall I enjoyed this book and look forward to reading the next volume in the series.
What a load of tosh! Apr 05, David rated it really liked it. The way everybody tries to out-bad-ass one another is, frankly, exhausting. It’s a death sentence really. Why don’t we just swallow all our tongues now and get it over with? Oct 12, Cera rated it liked it. Owen and his allies try to combine their forces with those of the regular rebellion and underground.
I will keep reading the series, because I am interested where the various story arcs are going, but if it doesn’t get better, I will be disappointed. The second Deathstalker novel is a direct continuation of the first one and therefore keeps all of the same qualities: To see what your friends thought of this book, please sign up.
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.
The latter is what we get here. The first part focused on the noble families in court scheming for position and the squabble for position within the leaders of the rebellion. It’s a curious thing, but I liked Lily much less reading the book than I did listening to the audio-version Jul 27, Ladiibbug rated it really liked it.
I still absolutely love the new worlds, inventive new aliens we get to meet, the suspense, the characters, and the friendly banter that I so enjoy. That would totally screw my mind over, if it was me. In many ways, even worse than the first in the series.
Another new character we get introduced to is the legendary Half-a-Man.
Deathstalker Rebellion (Deathstalker, book 2) by Simon R Green
This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review. All in all the story was a lot of fun. So, Okay, the main characters are tremendously over-powered, and the deathstalkwr is at times very repetitive, and I kind of loathe Simon R. It is being built by clones as slaves in the worst possible conditions.
Eve A bit of a drop-off from the first one, but really it’s a whole lot more of the same. To be honest, this book is one of those that you think deathstaler, I’m not getting anywhere!
Dec 27, Darren rated it really liked it. When I finish this second novel I felt like naturally continuing onto the next one, and at more The second Deathstalker novel is a direct continuation of the first one and therefore keeps all of the same qualities: If I hate characters, it’s usually because they’re especially terrible people.
Believe me, this is the perfect space opera you where looking for.
On an intellectual level, every fibre screams to put this down, but like a train without brakes you just keep going. Owen Deathstalker – outlawed, with a price on his head and a mighty warrior lineage in his veins – had no choice but rebeellion embrace the destiny that befell him.
Deathstalker Rebellion: Being the Second Part of the Life and Times of Owen Deathstalker
Ward’s Black Dagger Brotherhood. 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. Which is fine, I suppose. Green P Tantor. And I think I was deathstaloer interested for that. Expect total sensory overload and a cavalier disregard for good taste and common sense….
