More About the Author

I was born in Michigan in 1969 and lived all over: Alaska, California, Wyoming, all before age 10. The restlessness sank in -- after graduating from the University of Michigan, I just kept moving. I've lived in LA, New York, Philadelphia, Portland, Oregon, and Martha's Vineyard. Constant relocation forced me to be creative in my employment: I've been a pet-sitter, an office boy in a DC law office, waited tables and worked at something like six different Borders Bookstores...which has to be a record. These days I work as an MRI tech at Hershey Medical Center in Hershey, PA.

I've said it before, and I'll say it again. Zombies and Star Wars, two of my favorite genres in the world. But when you take two things that are amazing and put them together, you don't always get Reese Peanut Butter Cups. Sometimes you get an unholy abomination that never should have made it past an editor's desk.

Not only is this concept just utterly stupid, but the characters are just so bland and one-dimensional that you don't even care when they get killed. Heck, some of them aren't even dynamic enough to call them one-dimensional. Sometimes the only thing they have that sets them apart from other characters are their physical appearance. One guy has red hair, one guy is short, one is a girl, etc. When these characters got killed in the book I had to look back in the front at the Dramatis Personae just to check who they were. Even then I was scratching my head wondering just who the character was that died.

I mean it! There is NOTHING that makes these characters memorable! Also never once did I feel a sense of urgency or concern for the safety of these characters. Even the main character Hestizo Trace is just so dull that I didn't even care when she was being chased by zombies or when the room was on fire around her or when she was taken prisoner.

Now let's get onto the specific parts of the book that just irked me.


Okay first of all, the members of the Agricultural Corps, are NOT Jedi. They are people who had Jedi training but weren't good enough to be chosen as an apprentice to a master. Okay, now that we got that out of the way, every time I saw someone calling the main character a Jedi, I was digging my nails into to the table or chair I was sitting at while I was reading.

Ok, so first off this isn't exactly the greatest book in the world. I will say that the story is ok in and of itself and as a horror book it delivers pretty much what it promises. Having said that though, it falls into some unfortunate horror story stereotypes such as the characters being too thin and shallow without much to them and that they try to drop several perspectives of characters that last a chapter or two. Its something that I think could have been fixed, but not by the author as I don't blame him for this. He was restricted to this small page count by the publishers and I think if they'd allowed him more he could have fleshed it out and it would have been a better book. After his previous entry in the Star Wars universe we understand that he can write well and make you care about the characters. With enough room to work with he could have made this terrifying, interesting, and worth the money I spent on it.

Also: one character is based on Liam Neeson's character from the film TAKEN. Its one thing to base it on a character, but another to rip it off. Its not a total ripoff, but its darn close and it kind of worries me that it was allowed. It didn't help that the character was one of the least fleshed, along with the villainous Sith Lord who should have been the focus of the story and instead was barely in it at all.

If you like Star Wars and mindless zombie horror though, there is plenty to love. I just wouldn't recommend buying it until it is available in paperback. The story and page count are not worth what you pay for the hardcover.

Okay, okay, I hate revealing ANYTHING about the story you are about to read, but if you are buying this book and can't tell by the cover that there will be zombies (and Sith), well then I am sorry to spoil the surprise, but it should be rather obvious.

So, a Star Wars zombie book with our favorite bad guys. But is it any good? Yeah. It is a fun ride, and while I would be tempted to give it 4 stars, there are certain aspects to the Star Wars universe that are introduced that struck me as new and different. Some books are fun to read (like the first Thrawn) because they completely change everything you thought was cool about Star Wars. Other books are worth reading because the story is solid--but the real beauty is the implications the story leaves behind; the questions it raises. IMHO this book falls in the second category.

The plant life in this story is food for thought when you extrapolate that into the overarching SW universe and the Jedi order. Much room for growth, here there is! I like the main Jedi character. I think you will like her as well. She opens up the world of the Jedi past the hack and slash we see in the movies. It shows a much deeper understanding of the Force--something that would be interesting to see explored more deeply in future novels. I think that's what I really liked most about this book. It is less "Luke Skywalker/Han Solo Star Wars," and more "a day in the life of the supporting cast." It adds to the scope of the world of Star Wars but it feels like a behind the scenes story that shows us how things can go wrong in the very places that create heroes and villains, not just on Death Stars and in capitals like Coruscant.

Is it safe for kids? Hmmm...
