Reviews of Deathstalker (1995)
Review by alanhunt (2003-03-11)
Our intrepid band of young heros (some of them unwilling) must band together to overthrow the evil empire, learning more about themselves and humanity in the process. Sound familiar? Of course. But Simon Green manages to make this particular telling enjoyable, for the most part. The characters are interesting, the empire creatively brutal, and the plot, while predictable, is a tried and true one. I will continue with the series, and see if he manages to throw something new and unexpected into the works.
