Untimely Random Book Reviews: Star Wars Death Troopers
I had heard about this book several years ago, and I thought that it sounded interesting. I also remember walking into the local Books-A-Million, and seeing the cover the first time, I thought that it looked awesome with bloody storm trooper helmet and chains (pictured left). Even though it sounded and looked good, I did not rush out and pick up a copy of this title.
A few months ago, I saw the hard cover at a local bookstore at a discounted price, and I couldn't pass it up. The first half of the novel is a lot of introductions to the characters and the settings, and then almost everyone dies from a mysterious illness, and the fun begins.
I read the second half of the novel very quickly, and I really enjoyed the action and suspense. There one thing that I will not mention, so as not to spoil anything, but there are two characters in the novel that I was unaware of as I started reading, and they were an interesting turn in the story.
If you like Star Wars and you like zombies, this was a fun read in the galaxy far far away.
