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!

    "Ending left much to be desired."

    I can't see this ever becoming a movie or TV. Waaayyyyy too violent and graphic... and that's awesome. End was terribly anti climatic though.

    "Awesome Book!"

    I bought this book a long time ago in a hard copy and haven't been able to read it. BUT I am so glad that I listened to it! Prepare for zombie noises and other creepy sounds in the background!

    The book was well written and narrated!!! I highly recommend it! It's pretty short but well worth it!

    "ending anticlimactic "

    I have read many starwars books. This was ok. Ending anticlimactic. Not to ruin it but when the zombies start to fly space craft...well even in the world of science fiction, that is unbelievable

    "Atmospheric and Entertaining"

    Pretty good story. I love all the atmosphere and audio enhancements. Schreiber does a good job of mixing zombies into the Star Wars universe. It makes for an overall good listen. Very Atmospheric, decently scary, and at times very cringy. Go ahead and give it a listen!

    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.
