His is just another sad story in a cruel Empire, and you get a sense of how he used to be a normal man, and even now perhaps he’s still trying to make sense of what destiny has shaped him into.
Deathstalker Rebellion (Deathstalker, book 2) by Simon R Green
They determine they can’t agree on a final form of government but that rebellion is necessary. The many primary characters have dezthstalker since the previous volume and the scope of the tale continues to be vast. I found myself skimming for the dialogue at times. This is my first one star review. An amusing diversion; there are some particularly wacky bits in this one.
If you didn’t like the first book for whatever reason, and were hoping things get better in the second, you’ll probably be a bit disappointed. I just had to imagine those parts of the book in my head like they were in the audio-book. They connect up with the deathsalker rebels to try to bring down the factory and free the clones and rebels.
What a peculiar reading deathstalkre. To be honest, this book is one of those that you think “Man, I’m not getting anywhere! Sep 30, smjbab rated it did not like it.
Technos is where the new stardrive is being built and everyone wants it. Although, as previously stated, although the fast pace is a wonderful ride, it does also seem to make those emotion-charged and action-filled parts of the narrative to go, well, rather fast.
Another reviewer called this series “literary crack” and said that you keep reading it, even though you know it’s bad for you. Dec 27, Darren rated it really liked it. The book, frankly, gets quite grim and dark on occasion.
Those books are quite short compared to the pages in this sci fi series. 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.
There is literally always action, always something happening. I love the humor in these books. His superb talent deathstlker a writer keeps the characters and plot lines very clear in your mind, despite the complexity and frequent plot upheavals. A very good one! Specifically it annoys me how the universe seems to change deathwtalker each chapter, such as adding a new super powerful character or group to the scene that hasn’t been rebe,lion before. There are massive passages of exposition that drag on for dozens of pages.
Other then that, the story was entertaining, the characters interesting if not a bit fragmented in this 2nd of the seriesand I recommend it to those who like action sci-fi. To see what your friends thought of this book, please sign up. The final quarter of the story focusing on Jack random is probably worth 4 stars, but the rest of the story lets it down.
Oct 28, Nanci rated it liked it. Another new character we meet is the “new” Jack Random desthstalker who, for the record, I hate for two reasons: Silence and Frost featured prominently again and had a few more missions to complete for the Empress.
Alas, I was unable to finish listening to the audiobook. No one is ever going to claim this rebellino thought provoking sci-fi but it is a ton rebellioon fun to read.
Not to mention the numerous high-profile screw-ups he has being transmitted live to the Empire. I’m looking forward to the next book. Once again, if you are anything like me, this book will, at times, have you crying, laughing, your heart pounding, aching with sympathy or at times burning with hatred. Expect bedlam, mayhem and other synonyms as well. Based on the tacked-on “Stay Tuned for Scenes from Our Next Episode” ending, it appears that’s not going to change much in the next novel, either.
Abducted by aliens, he was eventually sent back to Humanity – but only half of him was sent back. Open Preview See a Problem? It is painful to see “old Jack” start to come into his own, only to be cut down by this new golden version of himself. If you enjoyed the first book, you’ll likely enjoy this one.

Green is not a very good writer. What compounds all these faults is that rather than learning from past mistakes, the author repeats them and and then surpasses them by contradicting himself over and over and over again.
Like the first one, repetitive ad nauseum. This series is like crack; seriously addicting! 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. Religion at best plays a role of social grouping and at worst, a rebelilon.
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.
