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.

    Story
    "Not worth it for me"

    I've read or listen to the majority of the Star Wars books out there and, unfortunately, this story Death Troopers is really not worth it. I appreciate the attempt of trying to make a zombie Star Wars book but it really didn't do it for me. If you're into that sort of thing perhaps you should give it a shot

    Story
    "Zombie thrillers do not belong in star wars!"

    Simply reading a book does not make a compelling our good sorry. The author of this book should stick to writing zombie books, and leave the star wars galaxy.

    "Felt immersive"

    Sounds were amazing and terrifying. I listened to it at night and would sometimes fall asleep just to be awaken by screams. Loved the story.

    Story
    "It was good but"

    It was good up until I would say some characters are introduced in the story. This was a great build up that just lost all of it's momentum for the tail end of the story. I honestly didn't want to finish it but I did and am left desiring a lot more. Performance was fine.

    "Unusual, spine tingling"

    Could not stop listening to the story, work overnight so listening to it in the car at night really gave a fright or two. Several times the feelings invoked were so intense, felt like throwing up but was enthralled at the same time could not stop listening. Grips hold of you!
