Death Troopers (Star Wars. The Death Troopers book was a pretty good read until it just suddenly stops. The author had one of those endings that felt like they didn't really know where they wanted to go with the story and just decided to wrap everything up quickly. So, what I didn't like about the book: - The loose thread about who the two brothers were in the Star Wars universe. An ending explanation that really doesn't make much sense if given much scrutiny.

I am a huge Star Wars fan, but you don't have to be to enjoy "Death Troopers"! This book has incredible zombie action, and I couldn't put it down! I even kept reading while walking home from the transit stop. by Joanne on November 13, 2014. Death Troopers: Star Wars Legends.

Death Troopers is a Star Wars novel written by Joe Schreiber. Schreiber's idea was to create a horror story in the Star Wars universe that pulled from horror movies he enjoyed such as The Shining and Alien. The novel is the first Star Wars horror story since the Galaxy of Fear series, released in the late 1990s. Released on October 13, 2009, Death Troopers is set just before the events shown in A New Hope

One "Star Wars" series extrapolates the challenges a war-time medical unit faces during the Clone Wars (essentially "ER" in space) while another one involves a former Jedi e eye on the dark streets of planet Coruscant. This book is literary candy for a geek like me, and it should be required reading for anyone who loves "Star Wars" AND zombies

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 part of space, its only hope appears to lie with a Star Destroyer found drifting 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 will do whatever it takes to stay alive. But nothing can prepare them for what lies waiting aboard the Star Destroyer. For the dead are rising: soulless, unstoppable, and unspeakably hungry.

First, when I bought this I didn't realize that I was getting multiple stories/books from Joe Schreiber. I thought I was only getting Death Troopers. The truth is that the book has three (novellas maybe?) and not just one.

The Death Troopers book was a pretty good read until it just suddenly stops. The author had one of those endings that felt like they didn't really know where they wanted to go with the story and just decided to wrap everything up quickly.

So, what I didn't like about the book:
- The loose thread about who the two brothers were in the Star Wars universe.
- The introduction of two favorite Star Wars characters seemingly just to get the sympathy of the reader.
- An ending explanation that really doesn't make much sense if given much scrutiny.

For me, I think it says a lot that I haven't been inclined at all to read the other two stories/novellas that came with Death Troopers.

this was just a fantastic read. it just FELT like an amazing star wars book. If i'm ever rich, i'm going to hire people to make this into a movie. great cameos that kept them very much in classic character and meshed well with the story.

Adrift in the depths of space a prison barge, carrying the dregs of the Empire seize the equipment needed to repair their drives from a drifting Star destroyer, they get the needed parts and then some. It starts with a sneeze, a cough and suddenly the scoundrel Han Solo is our only hope clear of a horde of flesh eating walking dead. I spent every waking moment tuning pages to see how Han & Chewie could possibly escape the clutches of The Death Troopers. Its George Romero meets George Lucas in a nail biting horror of nightmarish ravings. The only reason its not 5 stars is Hans Character is a bit subdued, but, trapped in a tin can full of evil and surrounded by an unending mass of walking dead would subdue anyone... even the Great Han Solo!
Blackseeker
The author has created a powerful story about family and survival that is riveting though not without flaws. The issues that this reviewer has are: underdeveloped characters within the main cast, an abrupt and convenient ending, and a glaring inconsistency with a prominent character (was it the right arm or the left?).

Overall an amazing story about what happens when Night of the Living Dead meets Star Wars. A fair warning (though you likely already know this) the descriptions of the gore and atmosphere can be disturbing to the faint of heart. This book is certainly worth a read through rather you're a Star Wars fan or not.

Thanks for reading the review!

I love star wars books, I'm just not in love with this guy's writing style. I felt like it was really cheesy and full of plot holes (not-to-mention incorrect grammar and word usage is somewhat common). Most of the major plot points and twists just felt too convenient and uninteresting to me. A really great idea and a fun read, but get through it quickly or you'll start getting really sick of it. I'm currently reading Red Harvest so I have to note: the ideas this author has are great, I guess I, personally, am just not a fan of his execution.

Ok so if you like star wars, but not zombies.this may not be for you. This story reminded me of Alien in a way. On another subject I did think the plot was well written, as was the story and its details. It had some twists, good parts, slow parts, sad parts, and happy parts. It is set around 2 or 3 years before A New Hope. Well I give it a 7.5 out of 10.

Not a bad book by any means. Just felt there were a lot of cheesy junk in the book that weighed down the experience overall. The characters were developed into to the point where they were workable but nothing more. Again not a bad book and it has some interesting action and themes. Especially showing what lengths the empire will go to and the horror they bring. However this is not enough to make up for schreibers simply passable dialogue between characters and thus it gets an average rating of three stars.
Some really enjoyable turns of phrase. As a possibly jaded reader, some of it felt a little formulaic to me; but that’s just a subjective impression—don’t let it put you off your own consideration of the story. Well-paced and suspenseful; I’m finding myself liking it more and more, now that I’m reflecting on it. Now on to Schreiber’s other Star Wars Zombie offering, “Red Harvest!” :D
