Review

Praise for Joe Schreiber’s Star Wars: Death Troopers
 
“This is the Star Wars of every horror fan’s dreams—gory, funny, and brimming with a blood-spattered cast of swashbucklers and space-zombies.”—Seth Grahame-Smith, author of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies
 

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


From the Hardcover edition.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Easily the worst Star Wars novel I've read so far. Poorly written, and there are numerous examples of theft from other sources. The most notable example being " Listen to me. I don't know who you are, but I am in possession of a very special set of skills. If you bring my sister back right now, unharmed, then I'll let you go. But if you don't, I promise you, I will track you down. I will find you. And I will make you pay"
That's directly stolen from the movie "Taken". There are other examples, but this book isn't worth recalling them all.

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 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.

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!

I don't understand the bad reviews, this book is quite entertaining although a little unorthodox. For the most part, the plot works well. Enjoy.
