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.

Praise for Joe Schreiber’s Star Wars: Death Troopers: “This is the Star Wars of every horror fan’s dreams - gory, funny, and brimming with a blood-spattered cast of swashbucklers and space-zombies.” (Seth Grahame-Smith, author of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies)
“Brilliant . . . This book combines two of my favorite things on earth: the Star Wars universe and the undead.” (Tommy Wirkola, director of Dead Snow)
this story was different from most Star Wars stories. it was entertaining. the narrator was a little dry at times and seemed to not fully understand the Star Wars universe. still a good read.
I requested a refund. The plot of Star Wars meets zombies was forced and inorganic. The story didn't follow the Star Wars narrative; making references to apes and angels and so on. The performance was flat and unemotional. The effects were repetitive and obnoxious. The ONLY saving grace was the brief insight into the workings of a Jedi in the AgriCorp. I love Star Wars and I like zombies, but this was hamfisted and disappointing.
Made it through the whole book, but only once, as opposed to my usual two listens. The novel took the enticing concept of "a zombie story set in the Star Wars universe" and made it feel like a Goosebumps book.
All the zombies ever seem to do is scream (the performance makes sure you are very clear on the fact that they do scream), and ooze blood. Even though it takes place in a Sith academy, where all the students are teenagers, I really had trouble believing that the fledgling warriors couldn't stave off an undead invasion. Give anyone in The Walking Dead a lightsaber and they'd make it to the series finale.
A Jedi who communicates with plants was mildly interesting, and the bounty hunter was kind of cool. Umm, the droid was ok. That's about it.
Better than Aftermath, but don't both with this one unless you're planning on reading every single one of the Star Wars novels, or you're 11.
This book is a little child-like, and poorly narrated by a person who ignores punctuation and obviously is into amateur theatre. It is isn't clear who would enjoy this.
Had it read by a few Star Wars fans who could of offered some constructive feedback. It was like listening to young boys making up a story as they go along.
Just about anyone.
The last page was wonderful.
I feel let down by this entire experience. The content and the narration was the only thing chilling about this work. Truly, this book can only be described as childish.
Currently listening to all the Star Wars books.
I cant believe so many people are giving 2 and 3 star ratings. This book rocked. If you liked Death Troopers or Maul: Locked Down then you'll like Red Harvest. Joe Schreiber brought the gore into the Star Wars Galaxy with Red Harvest. I loved it.
the moment the first student turned into the undead.
His ability to give each character a distinct voice.
A Sith Outbreak
I have read/listened too almost all Starwars books out and this was one I hadn't been aware of until now. So with excitement I got it without reading reviews.
I have wasted my money. The performer sounds like he has just learned to read with many awkward pauses and the story just drones on. I only got about 3 hours into it and decided silence was better. This is the very first audio book I've ever not finished.
Save your credit and get any of the other great Starwars books.
