Publisher's Summary

When the Imperial prison barge Purge - temporary home to 500 of the galaxy's most ruthless killers, rebels, scoundrels, and thieves - breaks down in a distant, uninhabited part of space, its only hope appears to lie with a star destroyer found drifting, derelict, and seemingly abandoned. But when a boarding party from the Purge is sent to scavenge for parts, only half of them come back - bringing with them a horrific disease so lethal that within hours nearly all aboard the Purge die in ways too hideous to imagine.And death is only the beginning....The Purge's half-dozen survivors - two teenage brothers, a sadistic captain of the guards, a couple of rogue smugglers, and the chief medical officer, the lone woman on board - will do whatever it takes to stay alive. But nothing can prepare them for what lies waiting aboard the Star Destroyer amid its vast creaking emptiness that isn't really empty at all. For the dead are rising: soulless, unstoppable, and unspeakably hungry.

Awesome atmospheric Star Wars horror

The Star Wars universe has always been about adventure and might, but being a full grown adult and a fan, I am always in search for good stories in the Expanded Universe.

I had always thought my beloved franchise needed some good mature stories and here it is. Death Troopers is a mature, fast paced story that will make you enjoy this book in one sitting.

The story is heavy on character development and you end up actually caring for what happens to all of them.

Narrative is pretty atmospheric and you feel like you are there, trying to get out of a swarm of monsters that are up for a good lunch.

Now about the narrator. This guy is AWESOME. I am pretty impressed by his quality, his acting skills and how he can switch from a teenage voice to a droid to a girl to a villain. All in a single chapter. If you happen to know him, please tell him I am a huge fan.

The production is also top notch. I has plenty of sounds and atmospheres and clips from the movies.

The book is a blast. Just plain fun and it will give you the creeps rather often.

Fantastic work.

Freaking scary!

Man this book will ENTRANCE you with the horror. At several points I had to stop because it was freaking me out. The chapter transitions which are screamed in a freaky way will really add to freaking you out. And yes thus far I've used the word freak a lot, because this book did a very good job of scaring the bejesus out of me. I had to stop listening to it after hours at work, cuz I was all alone. The narration is AWESOME. They have full dramatization and a full cast as far as I can tell. WARNING: This audio book WILL scare most people. I am no shyster to horror, with all classic horror movies being enjoyable to me. But jeez, the way this book is paced you constantly feel the constraints of the spaceships. There is nowhere safe to run. Nowhere to safe to hide. If horror is your bag, GET THIS AUDIO BOOK! If you are easily frightened stay away!
