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.

    "GIVE IT A CHANCE!!! Horror meets Star Wars."
    Would you listen to Star Wars: Red Harvest again? Why?

    I would, and have listened to it a couple times over. Maybe you have to be a younger horror junkie/Star Wars/zombie nerd like myself to fully enjoy this story, but maybe not. Theres "The Sickness", the occult, squishes, squashes, gore, great sound effects, lightsaber battles, a pretty original story and even human sacrifices. Everything a young adult could want.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Star Wars: Red Harvest?

    When the librarian is talking to "The Sickness". My favorite quote from the book..."The flesh is our fuel.And the books are our fuel.And this planet is our fuel, all things are fuel.They exist only so that they can be consumed by us.They are meat for the beast.And that beast is you."


    Which character – as performed by John Glover – was your favorite?

    Darth Scabrous. He is such an evil son of a bitch, i love it.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Thank your lucky stars these events take place long ago in a galaxy far far away.

    "Below Average for a Star Wars book"

    If you liked "Death Troopers" you'll probably love this book, but below average compared most Star Wars books.

    "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.

    "THE WORST BOOK I HAVE EVER READ!!!"
    What would have made Star Wars: Red Harvest better?

    Title the book


    What was most disappointing about Joe Schreiber’s story?

    The all concept of mixing Zombies with an Star Wars world is just bad. I had to spend 15 minutes on a background story for a new character that will not be relevant or would die 1 minute after finishing his background story, what is the point?

    Also the all contamination system is just bad and is not consistent. In addition to first classic dump zombies, then smart lightsaber handler, and tactic group attackers, to get back to dump brute force zombies again. State the rules of your zombie world and stick to it, but BE CONSISTENT!!


    Which character – as performed by John Glover – was your favorite?

    The droid is the online from the Star Wars world


    What character would you cut from Star Wars: Red Harvest?

    All but the droid


    Any additional comments?

    This is by far the worst book I have ever read, it is sad to see how cheap the Star Wars brand has become!!

    "The worst Star Wars book!"
    What disappointed you about Star Wars: Red Harvest?

    The Star Wars univers did not need a zombie book. The story was written badly. It seemed the story was just made up in a hurry to fill the zombie niche. I was very disappointed in this book and annoyed I wasted a credit on it.


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

    NO! I have read every Star Wars book and will continue to as long as they write them.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    He did a fine job reading the material given him.

    Great way to read great books on the go. Love Sci Fi especially Orson Scott Card and Star Wars.

    "Creepy"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Not really. This book was an ok follow up to death troopers, but lacked the oomph that the first one had.


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

    It was interesting to learn the origins of the plaugue and having several intelligent plants was very unique.


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

    Excellent use of voices, especially the the Neti.


    Did Star Wars: Red Harvest inspire you to do anything?

    Not become a Sith acolyte.


    Any additional comments?

    Not my favorite bit of EU, but not bad overall.

    "One of the worst Star Wars stories..."

    This is nothing but garbage, no real plot, but just an attempt at being horribly gross...not worth even $1.00.

    "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.

    "Great listen!!"

    This author produces different work to the more usual Star Wars books, in this one almost all events are set in a single area - a Sith Academy with particularly bizarre machinations of its lord leading to ravening zombies going on the loose.

    Perhaps a little akin to films like Alien and certainly more horror than traditional Star Wars adventure, there is much splatter, violence and gore. The sound effects add to the atmosphere and the Sith Academy area is well realised, you get a feel of the space and size of the environment, which the sound effects add to.

    I was certainly giving this my full attention all the way through and never quite sure what would happen. In the 7 hours of this book a lot more happens than often in double that in other Star Wars books.

    Recommended if you aren't squeamish and I think the author is a breath of fresh air in this franchise. He can do more of what he likes in this time period, in the 'latest' Fate of the Jedi books the author hasn't got so much freedom to operate.

    Well worth a listen.

    "An excellently crafted story"

    A gripping story that has an energetic plot. The characters are imaginatively described and fleshed out with interesting details. I found myself routing for the dark side. When the plot unfolds and the tale reaches it's peak I could not stop listening, I had to find out what happens in the end. I would recommend this audiobook to anyone who was remotely interested in star wars. I would also recommend this book to anyone who was interested in zombie tales.

    "Not what I had expected"

    I have listened to quite a few Star Wars themed audio books and was slightly disappointed with this particular book as it appeared to me to be more of a zombie version of Star Wars than an actual Old Republic type or Fate of the Jedi type.



    I was not so keen on the listen as it progressed and was happy to arrive at the conclusion? If you like the Zombie style books then this will definitely be up your alley.
