Description

When the Imperial prison barge Purge–temporary home to five hundred of the galaxy’ s most ruthless killers, rebels, scoundrels, and thieves–breaks down in a distant, uninhabited part of space, its only hope appears to lie with a Star Destroyer found drifting, derelict, and seemingly abandoned. But when a boarding party from the Purge is sent to scavenge for parts, only half of them come back–bringing with them a horrific disease so lethal that within hours nearly all aboard the Purge die in ways too hideous to imagine.

And death is only the beginning.

The Purge’s half-dozen survivors– two teenage brothers, a sadistic captain of the guards, a couple of rogue smugglers, and the chief medical officer, the lone woman on board–will do whatever it takes to stay alive. But nothing can prepare them for what lies waiting aboard the Star Destroyer amid its vast creaking emptiness that isn’t really empty at all. For the dead are rising: soulless, unstoppable, and unspeakably hungry.

Features a bonus section following the novel that includes a primer on the Star Wars expanded universe, and over half a dozen excerpts from some of the most popular Star Wars books of the last thirty years!

  • Great book

    This book can bring up the imagery of what is happening. Everything is in great detail and the tension is almost constantly palpable. Every second after a non-disclosed Point for the sake of spoilers is very tense and constantly coming up with more reasons to be so. The consistency in the sickness is very real as well so you never go wait it can’t do that.
  • Well done

    This book was amazing yet it has a few plot supries that may work or not depending on the reader. This book was so good that I had finished it in less than two days, which was to me something impresive for maybe once or twice had I read a book that fast. Without going into deatil or spoiling the story, it takes palce during the time of the Empire “ovious here becasue of the helmet on the cover but its about horror and the empire and starwars and some unfrogtable characters. Imagine the "The Thing’ in space with super technology so like a horror story with in the Empire. This all works super and I mean super well, this all fits together and it just makes sense. Its the perfect side story with the right setting, any SciFi Horror fan will love this title. The second half of the book is a bit weird because of the suprises yet it still keeps the tone, even the ending fits all well. Depending on your love or hate for starwars the ending will leave you weirded out or satify as any true story, people have their own opinons yet to me overall this was a great book.

    This is a blend between horror and Star Wars. It is amazing to say the least. The graphic detail of of the gore makes this a must read for horror fans, and this is a must read for Star Wars fans. It has some interning new characters and a awesome unexpected cameo. I never read and the fact I read this book says something. Don't hesitated,buy this book now.
  • Absolutely Amazing

    Holding its ground as a jaw dropping (no pun intended) horror story about the Star Wars universe. A brave take on a time around 10 years before Star Wars: A New Hope, where a Class I Star Destroyer harvests thousands of undead Imperials, this story will keep anyone who loves a good grotesque yet deep story on the edge of their seat wether they like Star Wars or not. Amazing story, and am definitely looking forward to the starting on the Prequel that was written after this!
  • Good Book You Should Buy It

    I bought this book for a vacation read. Story had its moments of corny Star Wars humor but the underlining story was gripping to keep you reading. There were a couple moments where it felt like your we were reading an old horror pulp. I found myself getting absorbed quickly and not wanting to lay it down. My wife was surprised that I spent an afternoon just reading. I am not the fastest book reader. I will be checking out the authors other books.
  • Surprisingly Fantastic!

    I originally downloaded this book because it was about zombies in Star Wars, which needless to say should catch any horror fiction enthusiast's eye from the get-go. I wasn't expecting a lot from it though, just some sort of easy fun read, but it is actually very well written and uses dark and morbid imagery in ways that I didn't expect. You really feel the vast emptiness of the ship and the growing dread in the characters' minds. And the characters are well developed too. All around a good read. 5 stars and a recommendation to anyone who is into sci-fi horror fiction!
  • Amazing!!

    Not really of a book reader myself! Never really interested with most books until I picked this one up!! Ive always been a huge Star Wars fan and recently wanted to know what happened before and in between the famous trilogy! What a great book that will make you jumped at sentences and make you check twice behind your back! Must read!
