You will never look at "Star Wars" the same way again after this one...,

This review is from: Death Troopers (Star Wars) (Star Wars - Legends) (Mass Market Paperback)
There isn't much I can say that others haven't already said about this one, set maybe a year before the events of "A New Hope", I can say this, this one had a neat premise, it is not hard to believe that the Empire would conduct a biological experiment that could go horribly wrong cuasing a virus that kills Imperial officers & Stormtroopers & then turns them into zombies, as a nearby prison barge is caught in a desolute Star Destroyer's tractor beam, members of the barge board the isolated Star Destroyer only to bring back the virus that kills all but six, two of the six being Han Solo & Chewbacca, at first I was concerned about this conflicting with the "Han Solo trilogy books(Paradise Snare, The Hutt Gambit, Rebel Dawn), however in "Rebel Dawn" Han & Chewbacca are notably absent for 5 to 6 chapters, so with that being said, this one does not conflict with continuity as some have suggested, this is where they were in terms of their absence, the first half is a bit slow, however when the six survivors board the Star Destroyer, that is where the scary fun begins, as Han, Chewie, pretty doc Zahara, two brothers & prison captain Jareth encounters the walking dead in the dark corridors, Han's swagger is ever so present especially when him & Chewie make their way to the command bridge & Han's notice of the pretty doctor, Jareth's redemption & zombies everywhere, again there isn't much I can say that hasn't already been said, all I can say is that if you like a good scary read & are a SW fan, this is a must have.
