"Listen to me," Trace told him. "I don't know who you are, but I am in possession of a very special set of skills. If you bring my sister back right now, unharmed, then I'll let you go. But if you don't, I promise you, I will track you down. I will find you. And I will make you pay."Ugh, no thank you. I've already seen Taken, I don't want to read Taken with Lightsabers.

Zombies, Blood, and Gore, Oh My!Darth Scabrous is cooking up a little potion that is supposed to be the Fountain of Youth, of sorts. He hires Whiphid bounty hunter, Tulkh, to get a Murakami orchid from the Jedi. Tulkh does this, but also picks up Jedi Knight, Hestizo "Zo" Trace. But Scabrous' mixture doesn't quite create what he wantedre, the poor Nicktr is immortal, but he's also a Living Dead out to kill whomever stands in his path. *Gulp*NOTE: I received the NOVEL form via 's Vine Program.

Big thank you to my pal Crystal Starr Lightfor sending me this book!Anyways, it's the month of horror and two days until Halloween, so I didn't think there would be any better time to read and review Joe Schrieber's mashup between star wars and zombie horror. This book is well known as one of the most hated star wars novels in existence, whether it be from the legends or canon continuity. But, honestly I didn't think it was that bad. Ok, it's not great, or even that good, but it certainly isn't [...]

When your novel is based around a “people in constant and immediate peril” concept, you need to care about the characters. You don’t need to like them all, but you need to at least care. The story is predicated upon these people being under threat, and if you don’t mind whether they get filleted or not, then you’ve got nothing.With that in mind I present to you Star Wars: Red Harvest – a book that trades interesting characters for overwritten descriptions and more gore than you can p [...]

Ok I guess I'm in the minority here, but I really enjoyed this book.I'm a TRUE Star Wars fan and have enjoyed all the movies (of course I like the original trilogy the best), books, comics and collecting as well.Now on to the review:I'm a Star Wars fan AND a horror fan, and this book delivered both! First of all, this is considered a "Legend" SW tale and it takes place almost 4,000 years before ANH I took it for what it was. We all have those ancient urban legends and fairy talesd this is just w [...]

Good lord someone please stop this man from writing more Star Wars Novels. Lets face it kids, this book sucked for many reasons. The Sith Academy is now on some new ice ball planet. Training sith with no balls. Sometimes these acolytes seem more in tune with the light side than the dark. Whats up with acolytes or initiates who can use Force Lightning one minute and cant handle a training blade the next. Light Sabers seem to be nearly non existent in the book with maybe a maximum of half a dozen [...]

Following the success of last year's "Death Troopers," "Red Harvest" gives us another zombie/"Star Wars" mash-up.This time instead of zombies attacking and eating the brains of storm troopers, it's the Jedi taking on zombies. And not just any Jedi, mind you but an isolated training camp of Sith apprentices. On the surface it seems to have a lot of potential for a lot of fun and mayhem within "a galaxy far, far away." But just like "Death Troopers," "Red Harvest" comes up just a bit short for a l [...]

The full article of this review is available at this link:bookunderthesun/20A long long time ago, there was a ship filled with the living dead in a galaxy far far away. The captivating story of a ship full of Imperial dead shambling around was novel in the sense that the popular sci-fi franchise never tried to accommodate horror elements into it. At least never did it seriously. That was Joe Schreiber's Death Troopers (which was also another book shared in my previous article).But the fact that [...]

There has ever been a more amazing cover than Red Harvest's. Those epic Sith eyes, creepy red tones, and general murderous intents are what drew me to this book. I have no idea who that is, but I will found out, and I will love him. That Sith is one badass. He's going to rule the entire book, make Jedi fall beneath his blade, and rule planets. He's going to-Wait, who is that again?After reading the book, I'm still not really sure. Why did the cover lie to me so convincingly? I knew this was a ho [...]

Red Harvest was a fascinating book in a lot of ways with strange aliens, a brother & sister Jedi team and a Sith master who wanted nothing more than eternal life -- but it came at a price. Red Harvest comes after "Death Troopers" by Joe Schreiber, but it feel Red Harvest is the superior of the two. Darth Scabrous runs the Sith Academy on some dirty planet. Apparently the Sith guys have academies to train their students just like the Jedi Academy does on Courascant. (Yes, I'm relatively new t [...]

Read this and more reviews on my blog.A Zombie-Horror Star Wars book? Now i have read everything!Red Harvest is set in 3645BBY (before the destruction of the First Death Star). Red Harvest is meant to explain how to virus in Death Troopers came to be. Personally i found it a tad weird the premises of it, but at the same time it made complete sense. By having Darth Scabrous wanting to become immortal, much like Emperor Palpatine, i found it extremely easy to understand the Sith thinking.Schreiber [...]

Joe Schreiber continues his fun zombie-filled "Star Wars" series that he started in "Death Troopers" with "Red Harvest". More of a prequel than a continuation of the events in "Death Troopers", "Red Harvest" takes place in the legendary period known as the Old Republic, thousands of years prior to the events of the "Star Wars" films. The story is set on the wintry-cold planet of Odacer-Faustin, which is the location of a Sith Academy. Lording over the school is Darth Scabrous, a tyrannical and t [...]

Joe Schreiber's first Star Wars novel, Death Troopers, was a breath of fresh, fetid air in the Star Wars community. Rather than trying to emulate the Star Wars movies like most of the novels, it instead emulates a George Romero film in the Star Wars universe. It was great; I loved it.In his second novel, Schreiber goes a bit too directly back to the well. The gradual infection of an isolated group (in this case, students at a Sith academy, rather than the crew of a Star Destroyer) leads to a run [...]

How bad a writer is Joe Schreiber, the scribe behind "Star Wars: The Kids Like Zombies These Days, Right?" So bad as to include his area RedBox as his muse. Notice, if you will, this little nugget as one Jedi discovers his sister is missing: "Listen to me," Trace told him. "I don't know who you are, but I am in possession of a very special set of skills. If you bring my sister back right now, unharmed, then I'll let you go. But if you don't, I promise you, I will track you down. I will find you. [...]

An entertaining enough read and one I sandwiched between volume 4 and 5 of Jordan's dense Wheel of Time series due to the fact that I knew it wasn't going to be as heavy or long of a read.No pun intended, but Schreiber fleshes out some of the characters in the book, but kind of leaves others hanging. Often violent and very descriptive, Schreiber deftly relates the Sith way of life in a school devoted to its teachings while the evil Darth Scaborous (sp)maniacally looks to his own agenda at extend [...]

The blood and gore is refreshing in SW universe but otherwise this story makes no sense. None of the characters have any true motivation or depth. Why the hell would a trophy collecting bounty hunter save a Jedi? He didn't have anything to gain. The rest of the story is nothing but lose ends and nonexistent depth of character. a shame because Death Troopers was quite enjoyable.

Fast-paced, with lots of action and gore. Certainly not a master piece of the genre, but fun enough to read.

Star Wars Legends Project #26Background: Red Harvest was published in December of 2010. It was written by Joe Schreiber. Red Harvest is a distant prequel to Schreiber's previous Death Troopers. He is also the author of the forthcoming Maul: Lockdown, and a number of non-Star Wars horror novels.The book takes place in the midst of the Cold War between the Republic and the Sith Empire, 3,645 years before the Battle of Yavin, 8 years after the Treaty of Coruscant established a fragile peace between [...]

Zombies and Star Wars? Well, sure, it sounds odd, but so did zombies and Archie Anderson, and that turned out to be a pretty good story. Plus, the way that the Sith have been trying for millennia to come up with a way to cheat death, it makes sense that at some point one of them would create the living dead. Even if I weren't reading all of the Star Wars books, I probably would have read this one just to see how well it was put together.The combination works well enough, but not enough to make t [...]

Well that was an interesting little story. Star Wars has always had a lot of room for scope, because sci-fi manifests largely as a setting and environment, and can encompass within it other genres such as comedy, tragedy, action, mystery – or in this case, horror. For me, horror can be done in three ways: scary (panic), creepy (unsettling), or gory (revulsion). I would define Red Harvest as gory with a side of creepy. I was never scared, the creepy elements were slight in my opinion, and the v [...]

It is hard for me to state how much I disliked this book. Since I was reading [or re-reading] all of the Legends cannon, it was a necessity read this one and unfortunately early in the process. And although this is totally cliche, I kind of wish I could give it no stars, but then that is why I only gave it one.I vaguely remember reading Death Troopers when it came out. Beyond that I can recall that I was not a fan of it and had a hard time seeing how it fit into the Star Wars Universe as a whole [...]

-Yo, yo, dudes. Listen. What if,… euh, what if there were zombies in Star Wars?-Dude. Wow. That shit would be so deep. You know what? You should make a book about that.I imagine this was the conversation between Joe Schreiber and his friends while in the stoner circle. The result was the book Death Troopers, a book which got good reviews. Schreiber thought he could double his success by writing another zombie Star Wars combo. Unfortunately, the result is a disaster.The main character, Zo, is a [...]

This book, while not exactly a literary masterpiece is well written and enjoyable to read. Even more importantly, it is an interesting new direction for the Star Wars franchise, combining the Knights of the Old Republic era with zombie horror. I am fairly new to the Stars Wars novels (though I have always been a rabid fan of the movies and video games) and to zombie horror as well, but I have developed an interest in both in recent years. I was skeptical about this combination at first, but afte [...]

Up front I will say that I think this was a lot better than his previous book, Death Troopers, which I also read. Having said that, it is a book I liked, but it was not a great book. Nice popcorn kind of entertainment. I don't really have much negative to say about it. I did find the zombie as result from an experiment to be interesting, and a nice touch in the Star Wars universe. As I have said before, SW franchise is pretty good about taking whatever is trendy, in this case, zombies, and adapt [...]

I'm not real sure about this book. I found the concept and the idea of zombies in the Star Wars Universe to be interesting. I'm not sure that it was developed as well as it could have. I was excited to hear about a mostly Sith book especially about their Sith Academy even though I wasn't sure how it would work. There is an unknown Jedi from the Agricultural Corps involved however. I actually got involved and liked some of the Sith acolytes. I enjoyed getting to know what they were going through [...]

If zombies weren't popular, this book wouldn't exist. I've read pretty much every Star Wars book and this one is on par with some of the worst Star Wars ever written, such as Darksaber and the Crystal Star. It's a mediocre zombie story set in the Star Wars universe.Death Troopers was alright, because it worked in a scientific explanation that works in the Star Wars universe. The writing of this book is just plain lazy, especially with the concept of how the zombies came to be.If you like zombies [...]

Zombie Sith students. Meh. Skip this one. A lot less exciting than it sounds. It's hard to enjoy an action packed storyline when you don't care about any of the characters or their well-being. I was annoyed at the random appearance of people/things that served no purpose other than to remind you that they existed. Hey remember Tauntauns? Here are some Tauntauns. How about a Neti who speaks like Yoda the first chapter he appears in, but speaks normally in every other chapter he's in? Also, I'm pr [...]

Schreiber continues the Star Wars Zombiesque feel with "Red Harvest". This story takes place before "Death Troopers", but it give insight on where the idea of the infection came from. What I really enjoyed about this story was where it took place. You get to see the home of the Sith training facility. Being able to see the young Sith apprentices going through their daily routine along with the young Jedi who has an unusual connection to the force was something I had not expected. This story is g [...]

This book was hilarious. Not because it was written as a comedy, but rather because it is just so dumb. The writing is fine, but some of this is so over the top it's ridiculous. There isn't a single character in this book (and we're introduced to quite a few) that I cared about in the slightest. They are not developed at all, just one dimensional with no depth whatsoever.I realize that most of the characters are cannon fodder like any good horror story, but at least give me some tension or somet [...]

Red Harvest was a much better book than I thought it was going to be. Having read Death Trooper and being a little disappointed with the direction they took with the book, this zombie Star Wars book delivers what I really wanted. No main characters that were "safe" because they were in the Star Wars movies and they had to still be in them. Pure zombie carnage seen from different people's views. Plus the sweet Star Wars universe. Yes Jedi and Sith were in full force. Schreiber did a much better j [...]
