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.

Listen to all of our Star Wars titles you can!

    "A MUST READ!"

    Exciting and most of all this book is so much FUN to listen too. The characters are interesting and you really care about what happens to them. It doesn't feel like your typical zombie story and the author did a good job of making the zombies and the "outbreak" more interesting. This feels like it would occur in star wars. BUY IT!

    "Wish it was still canon"

    It's a good story and the performance was great. I just wish Disney would just make it canon.

    "Decent"

    I had really high hopes at first, I think joe Schreiber is a really talented author and have really enjoyed some of his books however this one left me wanting. The sound effects, voice acting, and set up were amazing. At first I really liked the characters and plot set up but once the story started to unfold it was rather bland and I really didn't like Han and Chewie being involved made it feel unoriginal. For being a horror book it wasn't scary what so over and the action was sort of skipped over and at sometimes barely addressed. If the book would have been more gory and focused more on the action it would have been an amazing read but instead it got slow and I found myself just sort of waiting for it to end. Overall worth a listen but nothing to write home about.

    "Would be a great stand alone Star Wars flick..."

    A great concept!
    Didn't need Han and Chewie to make it Star Wars however. It would be phenomenal as its own movie (if Disney would make horror movies) if they didn't have Han and Chewbacca there. I love those characters... in the overall Star Wars lore, but their presence in this story seems like forced convenience. I get that it doesn't matter because it's Expanded Universe, but still, the places of Chewbacca and Han could have been filled with original characters and still Death Troopers would be just as great if not better.

    "Good for zombie lovers"

    Obviously not for everyone but I strongly recommend it too people who like horror and star wars such as myself. Has great narration and atmosphere and over all enjoyably tense.

    Story
    "han solo says "zombies""

    the story was well-written. However, the inclusion of zombies in the Star Wars Universe feels forced and genre breaking. the story is well written and filled with images both gruesome and touching when appropriate for both. my problems started when han and Chewbacca were included (the story could have handled itself without them and felt weaker for it) and compounded when the dead began to rise. it felt wholely un-starwars when the characters concern themselves with bites and infection as the author tries desperately to not place this in any specific point in the cinematic timeline. I liked it well enough to listen all the way through, I just felt a little let down be the "twists" that were telegraphed early on
