Book Description

Dec 28 2010 Star Wars
The era of the Old Republic is a dark and dangerous time, as Jedi Knights valiantly battle the Sith Lords and their ruthless armies. But the Sith have disturbing plans—and none more so than the fulfillment of Darth Scabrous’s fanatical dream, which is about to become nightmarish reality.

Unlike those other Jedi sidelined to the Agricultural Corps—young Jedi whose abilities have not proved up to snuff—Hestizo Trace possesses one extraordinary Force talent: a gift with plants. Suddenly her quiet existence among greenhouse and garden specimens is violently destroyed by the arrival of an emissary from Darth Scabrous. For the rare black orchid that she has nurtured and bonded with is the final ingredient in an ancient Sith formula that promises to grant Darth Scabrous his greatest desire.

But at the heart of the formula is a never-before-seen virus that’s worse than fatal—it doesn’t just kill, it transforms. Now the rotting, ravenous dead are rising, driven by a bloodthirsty hunger for all things living—and commanded by a Sith Master with an insatiable lust for power and the ultimate prize: immortality . . . no matter the cost.

“Brilliant . . . This book combines two of my favorite things on earth: the Star Wars universe and the undead.”—Tommy Wirkola, director of Dead Snow

4.0 out of 5 stars Before Death Troopers...The Red Harvest! April 21 2011
Format:Hardcover
This is the second book written by Joe Schreiber about zombies in the Star Wars Universe. While the uniqueness of this concept has lost some of its novelty, the book doesn't fail to give its readers what they are looking for: a rip roaring zombie story with lightsabers, Sith and Jedi. The story revolves around the quest of a Sith Lord named Darth Scabrous who is attempting to create an elixir of immortality in his Sith academy on the planet of Odacer-Faustin. However, creating this elixir requires one special ingredient, a black Murakami orchid, which is in the care of a female Jedi Knight, Hestizo Trace.

This story is told from multiple viewpoints, including that of Darth Scarbrous, Hestizo Trace and numerous Sith students in the academy. This technique works relatively well for the novel, giving it the feel of a horror movie that follows the story of numerous characters and their interactions with the monsters lying in wait. However, Schreiber does not really bring anything new to the Star Wars Universe in this story. The characters he creates are unlikely to be featured in another Star Wars novel and because this story is set in the Old Republic Era, approximately 3500 years before any of the Star Wars films we do not see any cameos from major characters, which Death Troopers featured. That being said, I hope that Schreiber continues to write his zombie Star Wars novels and eventually bridges the storyline gap between Red Harvest and Death Troopers, which took place only a year before the events of Star Wars: A New Hope.

Overall, this novel is a well-paced and entertaining addition to the Star Wars Universe. I would recommend it to fans of zombie stories, or Star Wars fans looking for a story focused on the Sith with a dark overtone. While not as exceptionally groundbreaking as his novel Death Troopers, which was the first book to feature zombies and Star Wars together, it is still great for fans of the first book.

4.0 out of 5 stars My Two Cents... Feb. 21 2011
By Adam TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover
From someone not really into the whole horror genre, this was a great read!

I'm not a big fan of blood and gore. This book has that in spades. I'm also one to cheer for the good guys, and this book only has two Jedi and a whole planetful of Sith, not to mention bounty hunters and the inevitable hordes of zombies. Yet despite this, Joe Schreiber writes an addictingly fast paced novel.

Don't expect this book to introduce anything of significance to the Star Wars Universe. There are no familiar characters and of course, after a zombie infested story line, there are rarely enough survivors to count anyways... But this frees up Schreiber to create and destroy his creation with wreckless abandon.

The Dramatis Personae at the beginning of the book is misleading and don't even bother trying to keep track of it. Schreiber spends more time developing some characters not listed than others who are.

One thing that Schreiber does very well is divide up his chapters. Some of his chapters are very short, but as you will find if you read this book, it only adds to the tension that builds throughout. You get a taste of something happening and then through a new chapter must wait to find out what happens, all while tasting another morsel of story line.

Schreiber does a commendable job adding to the horror genre within the Star Wars Universe. And while I am still not a fan of the genre, I appreciate Schreiber's work enough to give it a hearty thumbs up!

4.0 out of 5 stars Knocked dead Oct. 20 2011
By Chris
Format:Hardcover
A very, very entertaining read and I had a lot of fun relaying the stuff in this book to others (there were some zombie firsts!). I loved Tulkh and the Mirocaw, the warped appearance of the Tauntauns and their meeting with the HK, the Sith Academy setting, and many of the devious stunts pulled by Darth Scabrous. How many Star Wars zombie novels are too many? Will we find out?

Format:Hardcover
This is the second horror-Star Wars book by Joe Schreiber and, on a good note, it is better than the first one. The story is bit more developped and giving a 'face' to the zombies helped; Darth Scabrous is an enemy to beat, a concrete objective, instead of just hordes of unrecognizable zombies to survive which is less 'tangible'.

The main characters were more intersting and developped than in Death Troopers but, on a not-so-good note, many secondary characters that seemed important and get backstories are then killed within a heartbeat and all their backstory is left to rot.

Maybe I just don't get the horror genre but when a character dies, I want to feel something. Without spoiling anything, some main characters die (obvisouly considering the genre) and it just happens and no one mourns, no one cares and neither does the reader.

The book was incredibly short for a hardcover (therefore very overpriced when bought full price, thank you Amazon for selling it at 20$ in pre-sale) and it could have used a hundred more pages to give us the moments of shock and sadness when an important character dies or more closure on some stories that, in the end, are left hanging because *almost* everyone is dead.

A better read than Death Troopers, but still lacking in many respects. You are told of an event where characters are present, not so much of the tale of the characters. It lacks personal thoughts, character evolution, heart, emotions.

Joe, if you are reading this, the story was pretty nice but please spend more time on your characters. They make your story, not the other way around. But I guess maybe the horror genre is not for me since I didn't like the previous book and never really got into horror movies either.

In the end, for all the prevoius reasons, I can't give it more than 5/10.
