Publisher's Summary

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.

What the Critics Say

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)

I thought the title started with Star Wars?????

What disappointed you about Star Wars: Red Harvest?

Hey Joe, just because someone grabs a lightsaber, doesn't make it a Star Wars story. If you wanted to write a zombie novel, write a zombie novel. What a waste of a good credit. Thank goodness I didn't actually waste a couple dozen bucks on this fraud.


Has Star Wars: Red Harvest turned you off from other books in this genre?

Not so much the genre, but I'll never waste another good credit on one of Joe Schreiber's books. Sorry dude, this was painful.


How did the narrator detract from the book?

I've always loved John Glover's acting and think its so awful that some jerk conned him into narrating this story. His narrating didn't detract at all from the book, the writing detracted from this book.


What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Amazement that anyone at Lucas' company would have ever agreed to allow this to be published, I want to know who got paid off...


Any additional comments?

Star Wars fans, there are so many wonderful writers out there who have penned wonderful stories but believe me when I tell you...this IS NOT one of those.

Didn't even make half way through

What disappointed you about Star Wars: Red Harvest?

It was just boring and gross. I've read every Star Wars book in the last 20 years. Always loved them, but this was the worst. This is just horrible.


What could Joe Schreiber have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

His inflection was all wrong. Sounded mono-tone. Sounded like one of those automated answering service like the customer service lines use. There were too many times where there would be


How did the narrator detract from the book?

He didn't have a lot to work w/, so I don't think he detracted too much.


If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Star Wars: Red Harvest?

I would cut the entire book, it just should never have been written as Star Wars book.


Any additional comments?

I made it to chapter 19 and just stopped, it was too bad to continue. Come on George, what were you thinking allowing them to publish this junk within your universe? I never thought it was necessary to read reviews on Star Wars novels, they’re just so fun and relaxing. Won’t make that mistake again. Can’t believe I spent this months credit on this horrible book.
