Deathstalker Book Summary and Study Guide

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Deathstalker

Owen Deathstalker was the leader of the Deathstalker family, which had a distinguished history serving the vast, human-dominated Empire. But he eschewed the paranoid world of Imperial aristocrats to live as a peaceful historian. Then, out of the Blue, the Empress Lionstone "outlaws" him and next thing he knows, his own security detail is hunting him to collect the bounty on his head. While on the run, he meets up with a female outlaw Hazel d'Ark, who helps him escape to Mistword, a planet populated with outlaws fleeing Imperial authority. While there, he learns that his late father set up a network of contacts to help him start a rebellion against the cruel Empress. Of course, as he builds a trusted coterie to help him, there is a traitor in their midst.

The review of this Book prepared by Robert

Owen Deathstalker is a young nobleman who wants to lead a quiet life until he is targeted for death courtesy of the evil empress Lionstone IV. He now must lead a rebellion to topple her brutal galactic empire.This novel has everything:
humor, intrigue, and avalanche of action. Green throws everything but the kitchen sink at you in a breakneck narrative that includes: cyborgs, elves, telepaths, bloodthirsty aliens, sinister A.I., and a villainess that make Darth Vader look like Gandhi!
