The plot is pretty basic, Prison barge breaks down in the abyss of space. Schreiber uses a simplistic zombie formula: the virus. While this book I thought balanced the Star Wars and the horror genres, some might feel the Star Wars is too muted. I'm not going to lie: this book made me giddy as a schoolgirl. It reminded me of The DaVinci Code.
It's creepy and gross and disgusting and it's fun! For the dead are rising: soulless, unstoppable, and unspeakably hungry. Not that I have anyt I had read numerous reviews pillorying this novel for not being close enough to the Star Wars universe, or for not having a convincing villain, or for just being sort of sick. The Imperial Prison Barge Purge is hauling its load of prisoners, criminals and murderers, human and non-human, across the galaxy, when it breaks down in deep space. In the first stages of the book we have the normal kind of prison story with prisoners fighting prisoners, guards exercising their power, a warden of questionable character, and so on. For the dead are rising: soulless, unstoppable, and unspeakably hungry. Some may say it spells disaster, but it was pretty legit. A big, but well known, surprise when this came was the introduction of our lovable original characters, Han Solo and Chewbacca.
Is the Queen who she really says she is? The Vong are callous and if they are to be beat a wonderful price has to be paid. However, the contagion — characterised by a — leaked from its containers and infected the ship, converting its 8,000 crew into the undead. Everything else is a negative that in the book feeling nothing more than a seventh grade pulp fiction project. It's perfect if you like a gory, fast-paced, easy read. Play as your favorite Jedi heroes including Anakin Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Ahsoka Tano, Mace Windu, and Kit Fisto. I've always seen zombies come out of graves and would eat people and then go back under the ground at light.
Rather more gory and a bit scarier than i was anticipating for a Star Wars novel. Moreover, tech The zombie force is strong in this one! This book is one that I highly recommend to just about anyone especially a fellow star wars fan. Ugh, I'm going off track. Some fans might not like the dark tones this collection has actually adapted but I for one love it. If this was ever translated to film, it'd be entertaining enough for some casual enjoyment. I thought you said that they were dumb? And death is only the beginning. And the book never recovered from that moment.
Obviously this is no book of the year by a long shot, but it's still a fun read. While I personally do not have any real issues with the material, it may be a bit too much for this specific story universe. This one is just plain good entertainment. A boarding party is sent on to the Star Destroyer to see if any engine parts can be found. I finally decided to embrace the geek I am and wear the title with pride. I won't give away who they are in case you haven't read the book. Turn off your brain and go with it! Trig has to climb a mountain of body parts.
Soon after, the ship's warden discovers a derelict Star Destroyer, seemingly abandoned, and sends a boarding party to scavenge parts to repair the Purge. Five out of five metal bikinis. I also like that the virus reacts differently to the various alien species, which is to say that it does not effect a wookie in the same way it would a human. Conceptually, Han and Chewie blasting their way through hordes of undead Storm Troopers sounds pretty awesome. After reading it over the course of about 3 days, I realize the cover art and the concept remain the best things about this book. Take the galaxy via covert operations. Death Trooper felt like a very standard eliminator to me — you know bunches of people are going to die, but who actually makes it out in the end? And no, I'm not ruining the ending for you.
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. The novel is the first Star Wars horror story since the series, released in the late 1990s. You must defy the strong-arm tactics of a rival family who will stop at nothing to destroy your trading company. Slice and dice your way through Separatist droids with your lightsaber and Force powers and use your agility to perform amazing leaps and navigate levels filled with interactivity. Features a bonus section following the novel that includes a primer on the Star Wars expanded universe, and over half a dozen excerpts from some of the most popular Star Wars books of the last thirty years! Be sure to check out my review of this book on youtube: I should probably start this review by stating that I am not the biggest Star Wars fan.
The cover itself is comprised of a bloody Stormtrooper head hanging from a chain with a hook jammed through its eye giving the book more of a horror aspect. And I practically followed what my mom said. Let us make up a story that the star destroyer lands on a planet with culture similar to Medieval Japan and have samurai aliens fight against Imperial armor covered zombies. Because those inmates and guards who died of the virus don't stay dead. Whilst it probably doesn't detract from the story itself, I did find it difficult to integrate this into the Star Wars universe. My fear was that the book would fall far short of my expectations of the initial concept and leaving me feeling annoyed. When it makes an unexpected stop near a ghost Star Destroyer, Captain of the Guard, Jareth Sartoris, is sent aboard to find spare parts.
Inmates, guards, stormtroopers are all dying from what appears to be a violent hemorragic fever. The ending wasn't really spectacular but definately makes sense so it workable. I tried to keep away from the scary, bloody, suspenseful things either because they were too dark and scary for me or too dark and scary for my mom. Doesn't add anything to the Star Wars saga, but it is a fun, scary diversion that can be finished in a day. Throw in the sappy silliness of a space opera, and you've I wrote this review in 2012. Is it a spectacular book? What doesn't work here is the plot.
