Description

Owen Deathstalker, last of the infamous warrior Clan, always considered himself more of a writer than a fighter, preferring his history books to making any actual history with a sword. But books won't protect him from Her Imperial Majesty Lionstone XIV, who just outlawed and condemned Owen to death, without any explanation, reason, or warning. No wonder she's called the Iron Bitch.

Now, on the run from Imperial starcruisers, shady mercenaries, and just about everyone else in the Empire, Owen's options are limited. Though the name Deathstalker still commands respect in certain quarters, out on the Rim, Owen is lucky he can cobble together a makeshift team of castoffs, including an ex-pirate, a cyborg, and a bounty hunter. But allies won't be enough to save him.

If he's to live, Owen can either run forever...or take down the corrupt Empire. To do that, he'll need the fabled Darkvoid Device - an artifact dating back to the first Deathstalker and perhaps the only weapon powerful enough to help this ragtag rebellion win. The time has come for Owen to finally embrace his Deathstalker heritage...and all the blood and death that go along with it.

Critiques

"Green blends derring-do, space battles and wry banter aplenty to form an eminently satisfying space opera." ( Booklist)

So much fun!

This is not a work of high or sophisticated fiction, it's everything fun from flash Gordon to Star wars, mashed up in a madcap space opera adventure. Hold onto your boots and keep your disrupter charged, this is one entertaining story.

Evil Empire, Psychics, super soldiers and aliens

Would you listen to Deathstalker again? Why?

Yes, it possesses enough intrigue and action to make it worth listening to a second time.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Deathstalker?

When the main characters went through the madness maze and found a baby at the center.

Have you listened to any of Gildart Jackson’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I have not listened to Gildart Jackson before, but he does a pretty good job of managing the different voices. The only con is that he doesn’t do female voices very well, but that is expected from most male voice actors.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Desperation and luck forge a new hero

Any additional comments?

The death stalker series is a unique series that pulls great ideas from other stories and mixes them together into a new and original science fiction adventure

Great Epic Fantasy/Sci-fi mix

This is not a dark and gritty fantasy. It’s more of a light and gritty fantasy, which If it’s done right, I find equally as enjoyable. This book has great story telling and a unique plot. After listening to hundreds of epic fantasy, it’s refreshing to be unable to predict scenarios and outcomes. Great listen

Exhilarating

If you are into Sci-fi this book is ingenius. With swashbuckling action, cliff hanging suspense, along with colorful characters, mixed with a great storyline and you are left with a winning recipe.

Great book for Green fans and new listeners

The story is intricate and like Greens other series verbal vision. I was shocked to learn it was published in 1995. It could have been released today and been just as relevant.

I'll never understand the naysayers on this 1

IMHO I thought this book was really great ,and it's the same narrator (Gildart Jackson) of one of my favorite books series Alex verus by Benedict jacka. In all this book series is looking to be awesome.

Like game of thrones in space!! Only better lol

Absolutely loved this book! Some of Green's best work. Full of intrigue and suspense with comedy and a little romance sprinkled here and there. Exquisitely written and thought out. Really reminds me of game of thrones, and not simply because of the use of the same words lol.

Decent Science Fiction

Best part of the book was the reader. He made the story and the people come alive.

Better quality but failing performance

I have the early 2000s audiobook version performed by a bigger cast. The quality is awful compared to this version.
Unfortunately this newer version cannot compete with the narrators of the older version.
