Do you love Zombies? Do you love Star Wars? Well, I have the novel for you! The novel is called
Star Wars: Death Troopers by Joe Schreiber. All I can say that it kicks ass! I have actually owned the novel since it was first released on October 13, 2009 but I never read it until last Friday. I have a habit of buying the Star Wars novels as they come out and due to my booked schedule, I do not get to read them right away. Anyway, I had time and I picked it up and I could not put it down. Before you know it I was reading chapter 18, pg. 95 When you get a surprise of two major players in the Star Wars universe.
The story starts of on a prison escort ship, the Purge,that comes across a Star Destroyer. A crew goes to the Ghost Ship to see what they can salvage and they notice that it is entirely abandoned. Well, something doesn't feel right to the boarding party and they leave and retrun to their ship. It is here they start to get ill. The doctor of the vessel, Zahara, and her 2-1B droid, Waste, where trying to figure out what was going on. Inmates and guards alike were dying at an enormous rate. Well, to make a long story short when all is said and done there are only 6 people still alive according to scans. But there is also something very odd, all the dead bodies have disappeared. Later we find out that the same virus that killed them has brought them back to life and they need to feed!
This book is a great read and is a must for any fan! I give the book a strong 8.5 out of 10. I would give it a higher score, but there are some things towards the ending that I did not agree with and would have possibly changed. All in all it is a great book! GO GET YOUR COPY TODAY!
