Deathstalker luck, all good!,
This review is from: Deathstalker Legacy (Hardcover)
The last few Deathstalkers were kind of like that extra slice of pie on thanksgiving. You want it, but you know you're going to regret it later. I liked the last few Deathstalker books but by the end, whew - I was glad it was over. There's only so much double cross and surprises and actions scenes even a space opera can stand.
So I approached this with some caution but guess what?! This book is great. It picks up approx 200 years later than the last books and we're dealing with some of the same people and groups. Good times are about to give way to bad times and of course we have a new Deathstalker heir on our hands. Events are similiar, but slightly changed so thats good. The first 2/3 of the book is background info for I guess the next 6-7 books but then books kicks off with fantastic action and a finish that left me begging for the next book! This is a great book to read while listen to, say, the Flash Gordon - Queen soundtrack or something real space opera like.
Simon, whatever your secret is that lets you switch between fantasy and sci fi so well, keep it up!
