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.

What the Critics Say

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)

    "Poison Ivy meets the Walking Dead"

    The story was absolutely horrible. Never could get into the plot. I listened to it simply because it was part of the old republic series.

    "Not what was expected"

    Im a big fan of the Star Wars story. I only recently started investing in the novels. This was not what i expected. It seemed like a gimmick in terms of the overall plot. I will listen to this story again and it may turn out it grows on me. Until then...

    "story wasn't bad."

    can't say that I'm too fond of the reader, just lacked enthusiasm, and made the story seem dull

    Story
    "It was okay"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Yeah, well spent as I'm wanting to really get more familiar with the Star Wars Lore. I'm reading/listening to all the books in order so this was the next one.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    I dont' know, it was too much like some wierd zombie story. I didn't like it much to be honest. I did like some of the characters though.


    What about John Glover’s performance did you like?

    He's got a great voice for it all and how he changes it for different characters. I really liked him.


    Do you think Star Wars: Red Harvest needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    No, zombie type thing is meh.

    "failed attempt"

    this book may have been better if the reader did not sound so robotic and so Monotone at times. it is as if someone tripled to write horror. however it is not scary

    Story
    "Star Wars meets Zombies"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Less carnage more story.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Joe Schreiber again?

    Probably not but I haven't sworn him off.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    The narrator is fine. It couldn't help the fact that Red Harvest is disgusting an gore-focused.


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

    I wouldn't necessarily cut any of the characters, I'd just temper Darth Scabrous with something or someone else. Anything or anyone else in fact.


    Any additional comments?

    If you want to see zombies in the Star Wars universe, go ahead and give it a try. The narration wasn't my favorite but John Grover's narration, combined with the subject matter, literally made my stomach churn. However, if you're looking for something that actually adds substance to the Star Wars expanded universe, I'd skip this one. Red Harvest lacks the distinctive Star Wars aurora that makes the universe so special.

    Story
    "Written more horror than a Star Wars book."

    This book did not have the elements that would help you envision a Star Wars story. Very little mention of the force, Sith/Jedi rivalry and rank structures, powers etc... It read more like a horror story. There were no tie-ins, just a very linear book. No emotional attachment for the audience. The narrator did not change is voice to distinguish characters. Poorly written, poorly executed. :(

    Story
    "God what an awful book"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Brain damaged 4 year olds who have lower expectations of quality


    Would you ever listen to anything by Joe Schreiber again?

    not so sure I would, no


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

    I didn't feel he was the right narrator for this kind of work. I imagine him better reading for a financial thriller or something by John Grisham


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    no. Let me rethink a second ... no.


    Any additional comments?

    The author stole too many elements from other works - zombies from the Halo series, "I have a set of unique skills that ..." from Liam Neeson, and so forth. There was nothing he added to the greater body of Star Wars literature and I ended up stopping halfway through.
