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!

The Star Wars universe has always been about adventure and might, but being a full grown adult and a fan, I am always in search for good stories in the Expanded Universe.
I had always thought my beloved franchise needed some good mature stories and here it is. Death Troopers is a mature, fast paced story that will make you enjoy this book in one sitting.
The story is heavy on character development and you end up actually caring for what happens to all of them.
Narrative is pretty atmospheric and you feel like you are there, trying to get out of a swarm of monsters that are up for a good lunch.
Now about the narrator. This guy is AWESOME. I am pretty impressed by his quality, his acting skills and how he can switch from a teenage voice to a droid to a girl to a villain. All in a single chapter. If you happen to know him, please tell him I am a huge fan.
The production is also top notch. I has plenty of sounds and atmospheres and clips from the movies.
The book is a blast. Just plain fun and it will give you the creeps rather often.
I thought this was a good book, and a good combination of two of my favorite sci fi things; star wars and zombies. One thing to note is that it is incredibly gory, just a fair warning. The narration is great, as are the sound effects.
Death Troopers is an odd addition to the Star Wars library. The story takes place far away from the original saga and avoiding the force all together. Instead it focuses on survival horror. If you're a fan of Star Wars and Dead Space you will enjoy Death Troopers.
Although the ending was weaker than the beginning the narration and ambient sounds are top notch. Death Troopers pleases listeners who are more into a tense listening experience than expanding their facts about the Star Wars universe.
I really enjoyed this book. Right on time for Halloween. The book was really good and the story was not just your typical zomie story. The action was good and the characters. I was very very glad to see two old characters appear in the book before there was a New Hope. We need to know more about these characters before Star Wars. I will never get tried of Star Wars and look forward to 2010 books. Every book cannot be a hit. There will be some we like and some we do not like but, for the most part I like most of the book star wars have release. I have been with star wars since the first movie and I have the games also to keep up with the story. This is my soap opera.
This story is not just read - it sucks you in & tries to eat you alive! Not your standard "use the force, Luke" story. Not for the faint of heart. This tale is told in such detail, that you almost feel yourself coming down with something. If you like a great story painted in its most graphic & gory detail, then download this bad-boy, and you'll find out that there is no adventure Han Solo & Chewbaca can't survive - barely.
Man this book will ENTRANCE you with the horror. At several points I had to stop because it was freaking me out. The chapter transitions which are screamed in a freaky way will really add to freaking you out. And yes thus far I've used the word freak a lot, because this book did a very good job of scaring the bejesus out of me. I had to stop listening to it after hours at work, cuz I was all alone. The narration is AWESOME. They have full dramatization and a full cast as far as I can tell. WARNING: This audio book WILL scare most people. I am no shyster to horror, with all classic horror movies being enjoyable to me. But jeez, the way this book is paced you constantly feel the constraints of the spaceships. There is nowhere safe to run. Nowhere to safe to hide. If horror is your bag, GET THIS AUDIO BOOK! If you are easily frightened stay away!
This audio book was great. It was my first from Audible and I had heard a lot of reviews and I must say it did not disappoint. I had some freaky moments where I even got scared. Enjoy!!!
First I am not a Star Wars fan at all but i am a fan of the author. The book was great if ur in the mood for a scary violent book this one is for you and u dont need to even like star wars to enjoy this book
