Book Review: Star Wars: Death Troopers

Star Wars: Death Troopers
By Joe Schreiber
Release Date: October 13, 2009

Are you looking for a new adventure in the Star Wars Expanded Universe? Well if you are then you have to pick up Star Wars: Death Troopers. Obviously it is not the ordinary Star Wars story, but that is what makes it so great. All that and you get to add a zombie-like virus to the mix. Be warned though, this isn’t your grandmother’s zombie virus so you will be fairly interested in seeing what is different about these particular zombies.

The story centers around a prison barge called Purge that transports the galaxy’s worst criminals to their final destination. When the ship seems to have broken down, they find that their only refuge and only saving grace is a Star Destroyer that has been found to be empty and drifting in a rarely traveled region of space. Seem odd to you? Well it should because this is where the craziness is going to come to a head and you will see it all unfold from the eyes of a couple of fan favorites and some new characters as they fight to survive the whole ordeal.

‘Star Wars’ Fans Behold: ‘Deathtroopers’
  |  @   |  

If this isn’t the coolest thing I’ve heard in a while, I don’t know what is.

Word has come around that author Joe Schreiber has written a little book called Deathtroopers. This book is from LucasFilm and Del Rey Books and takes place in the wonderful world of Star Wars… the only difference here is, this book is a horror story.

On his blog, Mr. Schreiber said that the book is in its final editing stages and that it will be out sometime in November of 2009, though on StarWars.com, there is an October 27, 2009 date set, so that may be the one to look for. They also call this the FIRST horror book, which means with success comes more horror!

StarWars.com is also the source of the image above. If you haven’t clicked it yet, do so immediately to see the full-size book cover. It’s completely insane and will make you want to read the book even more than you already want to.
