And, finally, the author does, on occasion, get the humour right.

Valentine Wolfe, is of course, as wonderfully entertaining as ever – even more so, if that is possible. Get rebelliion free with day trial.
What a load of tosh! This book was a real slog, but there were still flashes of fun here and there, enough to keep me going, possibly against my better judgement.
Although this series purports to revolve around the character of Owen Deathstalker, he actually appears in very few chapters of this book in the series. May 21, Jer Wilcoxen rated it did not like it Shelves: I can’t really argue with that. 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.
And so I keep reading, eager to know what will happen next! Well, what can I say? Excerpted Simon Richard Green is a British science fiction and fantasy-author. No trivia or quizzes yet. Perhaps my favourite new characters that are introduced in this book are Toby Shreck – Gregor Shrecks nephew, and PR flack for Clan Shreck before he was, well, kind of fired.
Despite all my griping, the book does have its moments. The original Deathstalker book was the best, and although this was a good read, it was a lot slower to get through. 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. Oh, so a character has suddenly manifested superhuman powers, conveniently suited to the situation at hand?
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. They determine they can’t agree on a final form of government but that rebellion is necessary.
They connect up with the local rebels to try to bring down the factory and free the clones and rebels. I will keep reading the series, because I am interested where the various ddathstalker arcs are going, but if it doesn’t get better, I will be disappointed. Deathstalker Rebellion is a weird bastard of a book, filled with contradictions inconsistencies, coincidences, unsubtlety and unintentional hilarity.
Oct 28, Nanci rated it liked it. 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.
The rest of it followed other characters after they split up to start rebellion in different parts of the Empire. I thought it was amazing. I just had to imagine those parts of the book in my head like they were in the audio-book.
Jackson’s voice is driving me mad. Some of the good points are, again, the humor.
In fact, some of Beatrice’s parts of the book were the most touching and emotional of the entire book. Thankfully, there is humor, and I care about some characters or I’d give up.
Didn’t like this one as much as the first. Enjoyable story, if you enjoyed the first, this will satisfy. The characters are so entertaining, and say the most hilarious things to one another that it really does make up for the fact that the book is not really all that well written.
Deathstalker Rebellion (Deathstalker, book 2) by Simon R Green
Be the first to ask a question about Deathstalker Rebellion. This is my first one star review. Deathstalker is off-screen again for much of the book. Simon Richard Green is a British science fiction and fantasy-author. Excellent continuation of the story. Although there are some issues with silly character names, I think the story stands up pretty well.
Oct 22, Kat Hooper rated it it was ok. I thought it would be about the war with the aliens after the rebellion had ended but now I realize it is the next phase of the rebellion.

Despite that we find a bunch of familiar faces as it is the planet the younger Wolf siblings have been sent to to deal with production of the Empresses new star-drive. I couldn’t finish the thing; was proud for enduring through pages of the monstrosity. They are on the wrong side here IMO but I like their loyalty and character.
