by on Mar.02, 2010, under Book

Star Wars: Death Troopers finally brings together Star wars and Zombies. Reviews on amazon are pretty positive, its a fast paced and gives the reader a healthy dose of gore and Star wars goodness. There are however some negative reviews, complaints about the poor writing and lack of character depth, One person said that the cover was the best part..LOL. Come on its Star Wars and Zombies you don’t get into a book like that thinking you’ll be reading a masterpiece of English literature. To sum it up one reader said it best “I read it cover to cover within the first 24 hours, it was that enjoyable”

Here a short excerpt from the book.. not to read if your squeamish
“The leg was connected to a torso, covered up by another, and another, the pile growing in front of him comprising what he realized was hundreds of dismembered corpses–heads, arms, legs, and whole bodies, bare bones, many of them still dressed in rotten Imperial uniforms… hacked recklessly to pieces, still others partially devoured, whole gobbets of of flesh gnawed off. Many of the parts were bloated to the point where the skin itself had begun to split open like sausages…”

Sales pitch from the publishers

When the Imperial prison barge Purge–temporary home to five hundred of the galaxy’s most ruthless killers, rebels, scoundrels, and thieves–breaks down in a distant, uninhabited part of space, its only hope appears to lie with a Star Destroyer found drifting, derelict, and seemingly abandoned. But when a boarding party from the Purge is sent to scavenge for parts, only half of them come back–bringing with them a horrific disease so lethal that within hours nearly all aboard the Purge die in ways too hideous to imagine.

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.
