"Lewis Deathstalker is on the run, with an evil Empire snapping at his heels. He and his companions, the diva Jesamine Flowers, the conman Brett Random, the psychopath Rose Constantine and a reptiloid called Saturday, travel from world to world, searching for help and answers to the mysteries of the past. On the planet Unseeli, they talk with what remains of the traitor Carrion, and the ghost of a man called Silence. On Lachrymae Christi, an old legend called Tobias Moon tells them the truth behind the legends. On Shandrakor, they explore the ruins of the old Deathstalker Standing, and fight with more than one kind of monster. And on Haden, finally, they come to the Madness Maze, and the culmination of Lewis's epic quest: the return of Owen Deathstalker."--BOOK JACKET.… (more)

Lewis Deathstalker's adventures continue satisyingly along the path Deathstalker Legacy laid out, with the usual satisfying Green twists and turnabouts. Outlawed and on the run, Lewis and his companions return to the places where the survivors of Owen's time hide and slowly pick up clues, all of which guide them to the Madness Maze. The Empire crumbles and finally falls into Finn Durandal's clutches. A plucky reporter rescues King Douglas at his execution with the help of the last true paragon. And like the title suggests, Owen Deathstalker returns and reveals the shocking true nature of the Terror.

I think this adventure is even better than the Deathstalker's first. Green continues to demonstrate the importance of truth, which gels nicely with Owen's commitment to history over legend. The characters are given interesting chances to grow. This far into the series, there are still many surprises, though some of Green's patterns become predictable. Hint: if he sets up something as wonderful, it's going to be destroyed soon. Regeneration tanks are a bit too handy, but the peril is through the roof, so I suppose if you want anyone to be left at the end to tell about it, you need a miracle or two. ( )

I need to read more stories in this series, and re-read them. This is a story of one of the ancestors of Owen Deathstalker. Lewis Deathstalker is on the run, with a motley crew of misfits trying to find out as much as he can before going into the maze. The maze can kill but it can also expand the person's abilities.

Interesting but the story is very incomplete and up in the air because of back and forward story, definitely a mid-series story. ( )
