Unlike those other Jedi sidelined to the Agricultural Corps, Hestizo Trace possesses one extraordinary Force talent: a gift with plants. Suddenly her quiet existence among greenhouse and garden specimens is violently destroyed by the arrival of an emissary from Darth Scabrous who seeks the final ingredient in an ancient Sith formula that promises to grant Darth Scabrous his greatest desire: immortality. But at the heart of the formula is a never-before-seen virus that's worse than fatal--it doesn't just kill, it transforms.… (mais)

Up front I will say that I think this was a lot better than his previous book, Death Troopers, which I also read. Having said that, it is a book I liked, but it was not a great book. Nice popcorn kind of entertainment. I don't really have much negative to say about it. I did find the zombie as result from an experiment to be interesting, and a nice touch in the Star Wars universe. As I have said before, SW franchise is pretty good about taking whatever is trendy, in this case, zombies, and adapting it into a Star Wars setting. I think this one worked out pretty well. The idea of a Jedi being able to telepathically communicate with plants was interesting too I thought.

Personally, in terms of the expanded universe, I find that I am liking these new novels taking place in the days of the Old Republic. Maybe because I find the Sith overall interesting. Plus the Jedi were around as well. I think there is a lot of room to work on for authors in this setting.

Fans of the zombie genre who happen to like Star Wars too will probably like it. For those who are not that big into Star Wars, but like zombies, they may like it as well. It is accessible enough for non-Star Wars readers I think. Anyhow, I liked it. ( )

Zombie (Rakghoul) Apocalypse meets a Sith academy in the star wars universe. A must read for fans of star wars and zombie movies. ( )

Red Harvest was a fascinating book in a lot of ways with strange aliens, a brother & sister Jedi team and a Sith master who wanted nothing more than eternal life -- but it came at a price.

Red Harvest comes after "Death Troopers" by Joe Schreiber, but it feel Red Harvest is the superior of the two.

Darth Scabrous runs the Sith Academy on some dirty planet. Apparently the Sith guys have academies to train their students just like the Jedi Academy does on Courascant. (Yes, I'm relatively new to the Star Wars novels).

He discovers a method of using a rare orchid that has a lot of Force in it and mixing it with a nearly dead person, killing the victim, a virulent "Sickness" appears. It can make bodily functions continue long after death and can transmit the Sickness to others by biting them. There is no cure.

Several interesting points in the novel. The Sickness can infect other species. To see zombie tauntauns was fun as well as zombie living tree aliens. The zombies (they're not called that) walk across the landscape of the planet looking for more to infect. One bite and you're as good as dead.

The brother & sister team was interesting but not played up very much with the brother. He is Trace and she is Zo. He is an accomplished Jedi Knight and she is Jedi too but has a natural affinity towards plant life. She is kidnapped and trapped by Scabrous, since she needs to be near the orchid for it to get the full benefit of the Force. Scabrous wants to eat her heart out. Yuk!

The brother on the other hand goes looking for her and this part of the story fails a bit. It's a little too easy how he hunts her down, finds her and then things don't turn out too well for him!

Really enjoyed the descriptions of the dark Sith planet and the goal of the Sickness, to eventually invade and destroy the galaxy. Much better read than Death Troopers and leaves you wondering at the end if that is the end of the Sickness or did it escape somehow. Clearly room for a sequel.

Slightly more enjoyable than Death Troopers", but not by much. If SW is going to have a horror line, they need to get an author who can make the reader feel something, not just describe things gruesomely.
I did like the fact that simple decapitation wasn't the easy way out like in the rest of of the zombie genre.
Finally, why are zombies equated with horror? I want to be scared, not bored or grossed out." ( )
