Untimely Random Book Reviews: Star Wars Death Troopers

Star Wars Death Troopers written by Joe Schreiber was released on October 13, 2009, and almost five years later, I recently finished reading this entertaining Star Wars horror novel.

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.
