Star Wars: Death Troopers | [Joe Schreiber]

Star Wars: Death Troopers

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.

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.

    Giving out fewer stars because I was inflating my start in a way that did not differentiate the mediocre and the fantastic.

    "Ugh Not Another....."
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I would recommend this story to the die hard Star Wars fan. There is another particular fan that I would recommend this to as well.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    I loved the sound affects.

    I am so very tired and bored with the plot as it has been done a billion times.


    What about Sean Kenin’s performance did you like?

    Just a great voice with a good sense of timing.


    Did Star Wars inspire you to do anything?

    I am not certain that I understand this question. I purchased the book because it was a Star Wars universe setting.


    Any additional comments?

    This really was not a bad book. I think young adult readers would love it. I did enjoy the radio play elements, and the reader.

    "this is not a zombie story for star wars fans..."

    this is a star wars story for zombie fans.

    Most of the reviews are rite- this is a good and gory book. more so than star wars. Much more since star wars wasn't gory at all… no, this is a zombie story with all the gore that any other zombie story has.

    There’s a great part where a guy is dying from the lung virus; he tries to talk through the coughing that is killing him. The scene is graphic with just the onomatopoeia(s?) of the suffering in the grueling monologue. But the narrator just nails the scene. His retching while gasping for words… came off real. Really hard to believe that he could narrate it so well.

    Anyway, it’s a gory book for fans of gory books much more than for star wars fans. With all the star wars stuff: references, sound effects & creatures, it may not appeal to the true zombie fans either.
    Really this is for the ppl that like zombies and star wars.

    Any other buys it will do so at their own risk…

    Story
    "Mixing Zombie's and Star Wars? Sure!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would definitely recommend this book to a friend. The story is very well paced and constantly keeps you on your toes, wondering when the next horrific thing will pop out. The story itself starts off well, giving good character descriptions, but not dragging it on to become a chore to learn about each notable character. The descriptions of the gore are graphic, which is refreshing for the Star Wars franchise.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Star Wars?

    When the sickness started affecting the first members of the crew, they built the scene up perfectly.


    What does Sean Kenin bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Sean's reading was phenomenal. He did well switching between the characters, and his fluctuations in his voice really helped you feel the situation.

    Story
    "Terrible, just terrible"
    Any additional comments?

    To start with, it's not a Star Wars book really. With the exception of a really bad part for Han and Chewie (just a terrible idea of putting them on there...he only did it to make it feel anything like star wars). The writing feels rushed; There's no real character development. He tried to put his own spin on a zombie virus and outbreak, kudos for that, but it was a terrible idea. The virus, the way it spreads, just everything about it was poorly thought out. Even if it wasn't a "Star Wars" book it would be just a bad, bad zombie book.

    I think my least favorite thing about the book is the chapter name reading....The stupid guy yelling in the background the name of the chapter was just a horrible thing to do. I feel embarrassed for everyone involved that it's there.

    I didn't want to finish the book. I shouldn't have finished the book but I spent the credit (wish I hadn't) so I did. I was going to get Red Harvest at the same time, really glad I didn't.

    "Scared to read it at first. SO HAPPY I DID!!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Star Wars to be better than the print version?

    Sound effects really add to this story. You do not that added chill by reading alone!


    Would you recommend Star Wars to your friends? Why or why not?

    Very gripping. You become very invested in this tale. You want the best to them. You find your self holding your breath and crossing your fingers for them!!

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I have never read or listened to any of the books in the Star Wars universe and tried this one because I just wanted to use up my credits and it made a follower out me. The production quality including the narrators and effects were wonderful and the story was very good as well.

    "Extremely scary and fun!"

    A fun new type of SW book that takes a different path from the normal Star Wars stories. Very entertaining and frightful! I wanted to listen to it again but chose not to, because I already know what happens. Please write more of this type of Star Wars horror novel!

    Story
    "Space Terror"
    What made the experience of listening to Star Wars the most enjoyable?

    This book presented in an audio format heightened the tension and created a real sense of dread for the characters.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The overall story was good and there is an unexpectd cameo that makes perfect sense.


    What about Sean Kenin’s performance did you like?

    He made the terror seem real without goign over the top. The chapter intors in whispers and screams were really creepy.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I had to sop listening one night since I was driving in the dark because I got the creeps.


    Any additional comments?

    Excellent addition to Star Wars expanded Universe.
