On the cold desolate planet Odacer-Faustin, Sith Master Lord Darth Scabrous sets up a training program to teach the young the techniques in using the dark side of the Force. Rumors abound that the Sith Master searches for the right pupils who will fill his formula for immortality. From time to time a student vanishes. One of the trainees who disappears Wim Nickter finds himself surrounded by medical equipment. He will "donate" his blood to Scabrous. As he lays dying
The beginning of a plague begins

Scabrous seeks a Murkamis Orchid, which he receives when "talented botanist" Hestizo Trace "delivers "the plant to the Sith Lord. The sentient flower has bonded with Hestizo and needs her as does Scabrous. He abducts the human and takes her to his planet for she and her dark orchid are the final keys to his immortality formula. Her brother Jedi Knight Rojo traces her through the Force as he wants to save his sister, but finds himself facing an army of zombies and worse.

If someone told me when I saw the first Star Wars movie back in ancient times I would read a Star Wars novel with zombies and a Sith Lord acting like a vampire, I would have said no way. Yet, Joe Schreiber entertainingly brings zombie fever to the Force during the Old Republic era. Zo is a heroic person who fights to the end to prevent the zombie pathogen from turning pandemic. However this is Lord Darth Scabrous' story as his insidious malevolence owns the exciting tale. Mr. Schreiber provides a face to evil as the Force turns to its darkest horror niches.

Horror, not star wars

not a bad book but i really didn't think it had a place in the star wars collection. just plain horror and gore, not my style.

    Good.

    It was an enjoyable read, though it had some serious flaws, an obvious one was at one point it switched names over whom had infected whom, and it seemed to break its own rules over what the zombies could do, such as think and talk, some can some cant with no real reason why, exept for the darth. The force sensitive plant parts seemed pretty lame to be honest, Zo the jedi seems completly helpless in every way. It also took a line almost word for word from the movie taken, aside from these flaws the action sequences specifically following the sith were very enjoyable. Worth the read though could have been better for some fact checking.

    Good, gory story.

    Joe Schreiber's second STAR WARS book STAR WARS: RED HARVEST is a gore-spattered tale of the undead, set just before STAR WARS episode IV: A NEW HOPE. In it we find Darth Scabrous, a Sith lord and overseer of the Sith academy, struggling to unlock the secrets of immortality. In doing so, he stumbles upon a way to reanimate dead tissue, and the single zombie he creates immediately infects pretty much every student, faculty, and living thing at the academy. I lost track of the decapitations, amputations, and organ eating before the halfway point!

    As only the second STAR WARS book to embrace horror as a genre, Star Wars fans may be a bit taken aback by the gore and general absence of any real Star Wars "meat" in the story. There are some Jedi, some Sith, a few lightsabers, and some Tauntauns, but by and large this very good story could stand by itself in any sci-fi or fantasy setting, and the Star Wars tie-ins are simply extras.

    It's a fast read, occasionally funny, but very descriptive in how the undead kill their living victims. Not for the faint of heart, but true horror fans and true STAR WARS fans will enjoy.

    Decent

    It's somewhat entertaining, never thought zombies and Star Wars could mix. Overall, its stupid, and a waste of money. Not to mention , it tarnishes the reputation of Star Wars, because Star Wars isn't about zombies!!!

    Horror book with Star Wars sprinkled in

    The book to me was a horror book with a little bit of Star Wars sprinkled in. Not really what I was looking for when I bought it.
