New York Times bestselling author Simon R. Green returns to the Deathstalker universe in an action-packed adventure—featuring a new hero worthy enough to follow in the footsteps of the galaxy’s most legendary warrior… Owen Deathstalker sacrificed his life to save all of humanity. In the hundred years since his passing, the Empire has prospered in a Golden Age of peace among aliens, humans, and AIs, with hope and liberty for all. Now, on the human homeworld of Logres, a new king is about to be crowned. Douglas Campbell has no enthusiasm to ascend the throne. As a Paragon, he enforced the King’s Justice and so prefers the path of warrior to ruler. But as the sole remaining heir, he puts aside the desires of his heart and picks up the reins of duty. His first act upon being crowned is to select Lewis Deathstalker—Owen’s descendant—as his Champion and protector. The new regime already has an insurmountable task before it: the Artificial Intelligences of Shub insist on entering the Madness Maze to uncover the secrets of transcendence that humanity has failed to do for hundreds of years—and they will not take no for an answer. But even more threatening is one man’s desire for a revenge that will unite all of the enemies of the Empire in an attempt to bring the Golden Age into ruin… From the Paperback edition.
Take a journey through the Age of Heroes... After falling in love with the king’s intended, Lewis Deathstalker is now exiled, an outlaw from the empire he faithfully served for so long. With Lewis out of the way, former, Paragon Finn Durandal, has led a silent coup to wrest control from the king and set himself up as the power behind the throne. But Durandal is not the Empire’s biggest threat.

Lewis, unwilling to believe that the galaxy’s savior is dead, sets off to the darkest reaches of the Galaxy to find his lost ancestor. Lewis intends to retrace Owen’s footsteps and overturn every possible lead. But with Finn in control of the empire’s massive forces, he is outmanned and outgunned at every turn.

Deathstalker Return is the seventh book in the beloved New York Timesbestselling author Simon R. Green’s beloved space opera series.
Owen Deathstalker, last of the infamous warrior Clan, always considered himself more of a writer than a fighter, preferring his history books to making any actual history with a sword. But books won’t protect him from Her Imperial Majesty Lionstone XIV, who just Outlawed and condemned Owen to death, without any explanation, reason, or warning. No wonder she’s called the Iron Bitch. Now, on the run from Imperial starcruisers, shady mercenaries, and just about everyone else in the Empire, Owen’s options are limited. Though the name Deathstalker still commands respect in certain quarters, out on the Rim, Owen is lucky he can cobble together a makeshift team of castoffs, including an ex-pirate, a cyborg, and a bounty hunter. But allies won’t be enough to save him. If he’s to live, Owen can either run forever...or take down the corrupt Empire. To do that, he’ll need the fabled Darkvoid Device—an artifact dating back to the first Deathstalker and perhaps the only weapon powerful enough to help this ragtag rebellion win. The time has come for Owen to finally embrace his Deathstalker heritage...and all the blood and death that go along with it. Deathstalker is the first book in New York Times bestselling author Simon R. Green’s beloved space opera series.
To the Empire, Owen Deathstalker is an Outlaw. To the inhuman Hadenmen, he is the Redeemer. And to the underground, he is humanity’s last hope. Above all else, he is the last of a legendary warrior clan who is determined to bring down an Empire rotted by corruption, greed, and institutionalized slavery. Owen will fire the first shot by breaching Golgotha, the heavily guarded home planet of the Empress and the location of her overflowing coffers. Besides enraging and embarrassing the Iron Bitch (one of the few perks of leading the revolution), robbing the Empire will help to fund the rebellion and garner support from the public. But starting a revolution is one thing. To win it, Owen and his companions will have to convince key planets to join the fight. Scattered across the galaxy, Owen’s band of misfits struggle to embrace their new roles as leaders while facing espionage, treachery, and the unexpected challenges of making their rebellion a reality. Deathstalker: Rebellion is the second book in New York Times bestselling author Simon R. Green’s beloved space opera series.
Lewis Deathstalker has succeeded at the impossible: he’s found Owen Deathstalker, presumed dead for the last two hundred years. Owen’s return strikes a crippling blow to the Empire as his military joins the rebellion. But Owen himself has a larger mission. He -- and according to prophecy, he alone -- must travel back in time to stop the steadily advancing Terror before the galaxy is destroyed, leaving his descendant Lewis in command of the growing rebel army. Even as Emperor Finn Durandal’s empire is on the brink of annihilation from the Terror, he will do anything, no matter how evil, to retain power. Lewis is equally determined to take Finn down and restore the rightful ruler to the throne. Deathstalker Coda is the exciting finale to the beloved space opera series from New York Times bestselling author Simon R. Green.
Official hero of the great rebellion, Owen Deathstalker fought impossible odds to throw down the Empress Lionstone XIV and destroy the corrupt Empire. That should have been enough to be feted, honored, and finally retired. Unfortunately, the new Parliament has some different ideas. There's no rest for a Deathstalker. As newly appointed Imperial bounty hunter, Owen tracks down the most dangerous war criminals. His current target: Valentine Wolfe, depraved right hand of the Empress and so-called "butcher of Virimonde." Valentine’s latest atrocities are both staggering and deeply personal to Owen, but revenge may have to wait. Humanity faces extermination from enemies new and old, while the fledgling Parliament struggles to maintain control. Worse still, something is alive and beginning to stir in the Darkvoid. The odds are stacked against him again, but Owen Deathstalker will have to face his destiny one more time...or forever damn the future of mankind.

Owen Deathstalker doesn’t trust anyone, even his companions...especially his companions. But for the diplomatic mission to Mistworld, he’ll have to try. Representing the Golgotha underground, Owen hopes to bring the planet into the rebellion--their powerful psychic “espers” would be an invaluable asset. But that’s not Owen’s only reason for visiting Mistworld. In fact, everyone aboard the Sunstrider II has a secret agenda. While Owen looks for an information-gathering network that his father set up, all-too-perfect Jack Random seeks out former allies, volatile esper Jenny Psycho searches for information about her power, and ex-pirate Hazel d’Ark pursues an old vice. Of course, success won’t be easy and there’s little time to spare. The Empire’s recent esper attack already left Mistworld physically and politically exposed. Playing host to the leaders of the rebellion only makes the planet a juicier target and this time, the Empress will deploy her most ruthless weapon to crush Owen Deathstalker and the uprising, once and for all. Deathstalker: War is the third book in New York Times bestselling author Simon R. Green’s beloved space opera series.
Owen Deathstalker has a prophecy to fulfill. Just as the espers foretold, Owen tumbled an empire and witnessed the end of everything he believed in...all that’s left to do is die. But Owen has a few more scores he’d like to settle before his borrowed time is up. The Empire is besieged by nanotechnology plagues and AI invasions, while mysterious and horrific beings, known as “the Recreated,” descend from the Darkvoid. But right now, Owen’s only concern is rescuing Hazel d‘Ark from the vicious Blood Runners who abducted her. He’s already lost so much to become the leader and warrior he never wanted to be; he’ll be damned if he loses Hazel too. So one more time, Owen Deathstalker will step up and be the hero--for Hazel, and then for Humanity. One more time, he’ll call upon the gifts of the Deathstalker Clan to fulfill his destiny and face death. All while knowing that every “one more time” could be his last.
