Star Wars: Red Harvest by Joe Schreiber
January 21, 2011 - Amy Phelps
Sith Lord apprentices are trapped on an icy planet surrounded by a deadly disease brought to life by a deranged Sith Lord in "Star Wars: Red Harvest" by Joe Schreiber. A young Jedi named Hestizo Trace is working for the Agricultural Corps, tending to a mysterious plant. She and the plant are kidnapped and taken to a remote icy world, Odacer-Faustin, where young would-be Sith Lords train and the evil Darth Scabrous presides. There, Hestizo learns that Scabrous has been doing some sort of horrific experiments on some of his students, and her plant is the final ingredient. But once the plant is added, something horrible changes the students into mindless monsters that can't die and only want to eat. Meanwhile, Hestizo's brother is trying to find her and tracks her down to the remote world and finds an unholy mess. And Hestizo has teamed up with her bounty hunter kidnapper to find a way out. As they both battle on oposite side's of the world to survive, along with a small group of Sith apprentices, will anyone make it out alive? Though I didn't enjoy this one as much as Schreiber's previous Star Wars/zombies mashup, "Death Troopers," there is still plenty of scary moments and tension to go around in this one. If there's any way Schreiber can continue to have more people stumble upon the virus in the Star Wars universe, I'll continue reading them! "Star Wars: Red Harvest" is published by Del Rey Books. It is $27 and 244 pages long.
