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)
It's not my intent to speak poorly about John Glover, but the way he reads this story and puts emphasis on some of the words like when he says "the force" (you'll know what I mean when you hear it) makes it seem as though he's never heard of Star Wars before. The book it's self is good, it's a great backstory for Death Troopers. How about we re-do this one with Marc Thompson, get the pronounciations right, the Sith voices right and rework that weird tree librarian thing. Do that and it's 5 stars.
You have listened to how many Audiobooks!!!!!
This book is not written well, it takes 10 minutes to describe an action or event that takes 1 minute. it will make you skip sections
I LOVE this type of Star Wars book. Very fun to listen to, different from the normal SW lore, and utterly terrifying! Enjoy the scary experience! Please make more of this type of SW book!
I would give Joe Schreiber a 8.5 for a good horror story...and 7 for the Star Wars portion. He kept the timeline in tact, and delivered a good book. BooYah!
I have to admit, I'm a huge Star Wars fan, but when this new horror genre was mentioned, I was a bit apprehensive. I still gave it a shot and got the first book in the series Death Troopers. The idea was fresh and the book was pretty good. As a first attempt, I do have to admit, it won me over. Shortly after finishing Death Troopers, while at Celebration V in Orlando, I saw the cover in a poster of this prequel. I figured the first one was pretty good, let me get the second one. All I can say it's wow! This is one of those instances where the sequel, or prequel in this case, makes the first one look amateurish! Red Harvest really raised the bar and the narration was even better than the first one. I caught myself more the once completely immersed in the story hearing noises! The special effects for sound where incredible and the narration really made you feel as you where part of the story. Highly recommend it! You don't even have to know anything about Star Wars to enjoy it. If you like Star Wars and like a good horror/suspense book, this is it!
This book was amazing and full of horror. But if you don't prefer horror books than you shouldn't read this. Though I wish that the book was read by the same reader of Death Troopers
Probably the most grotesque bit of reading i have every been subjected to... and the dumbest! I wish i had read the reviews prior to buying... don't waist your time. I am a Star Wars fan but this is complete rubbish in every imaginable use of the word.

Story is ok, but the narrator pauses between words... as... if... he... were... reading... to...partially deaf persons. Would have been much better with ANY of the other common starwars narrators. Still a good audiobook though.
Star Wars fan
As a horror novel, I feel that Red Harvest doesn't work in the same sense as Death Troopers did.
But don't get me wrong, it still is one of the best Star Wars novels I've ever encountered... lots of great action, suspense, drama... but, not horror... Give it a try, you won't regret it, but definitely, if you have missed Death Troopers, go for it!
