The silliness is juxtaposed against a surprising level of violence, which has an unsettling effect. I can imagine that this series is extremely polarizing, but it will certainly appeal to some people. Aug 25, Harrison rated it rebellipn it. In spite of that though, the characters are interesting if a little wooden and the worlds, aliens, and technology Green incorporates into the universe including a mix of laser blasters and swords that quite appeals to the scifi-swashbuckler in me keeps me reading on.
I’m not sure if I’m going to wind up finishing the series, febellion.
Sep 11, Ross rated it liked it Shelves: Although there are some issues with silly character names, I think the story stands up pretty well. It just keeps droning, on, and on, and on, and on There are no discussion topics on this book yet.
But at least Rebellkon not indifferent to everyone.
I can’t imagine a sober editor approving the structure of this behemoth of a book. Sep 21, krin rated it liked it Shelves: Good story, the reader is beginning rebelliom drone on Enjoyable story, if you enjoyed the first, this will satisfy.
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.
With clones, telepaths, telekinesis and feudal lords. Her struggle and the sadness of her situation moved me to tears.
Perhaps my favourite new characters that are introduced in this book are Toby Shreck – Gregor Shrecks nephew, and PR flack for Rebelliln Shreck before he was, well, kind of fired.
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. Oct 12, Cera rated it liked it. Green is not a very good writer.

Get it free with day trial. Owen Deathstalker – outlawed, with a price deahhstalker his head and the blood of a mighty warrior lineage in his veins – had no choice but to embrace a dangerous destiny. The vast majority of action is centred on other characters. Even rebelllion I planned to read a lot longer, I find myself stopping when I hit a chapter point simply because they’re so rare.
And I think I was less interested for that. Silence and Frost featured prominently again and had a few more missions to complete for the Empress. I still found it entertaining, but this makes two books now in a series called Deathstalker where the titular Deathstalker has barely made an appearance at all. May 21, Jer Wilcoxen rated it did not like it Shelves: And, finally, the author does, on occasion, get the humour right.
I liked the occasional bolt of humor too: Maybe I’ll get around to writing out a full review of it sometime, but for the time being I really don’t have that much time to spend on writing a review I’m not going to be paid for. There are many secondary kind of characters from the first Deathstalker that make a repeat appearance in Deathstalker Rebellion.

Can’t wait to see what happens next! Oh, so a character has suddenly manifested superhuman powers, conveniently suited to the situation at hand?
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. Although this series deathstzlker to revolve around the character of Owen Deathstalker, he actually appears in very few chapters of this book in the series.
Although I do like some of SRG’s other work. Almost every character is an overblown caricature of sorts. Jul 11, Ubiquitousbastard rated it liked it Shelves:
