The era of the Old Republic is a dark and dangerous time, as Jedi Knights valiantly battle the Sith Lords and their ruthless armies. But the Sith have disturbing plans—and none more so than the fulfillment of Darth Scabrous’s fanatical dream, which is about to become nightmarish reality.
Unlike those other Jedi sidelined to the Agricultural Corps—young Jedi whose abilities have not proved up to snuff—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. For the rare black orchid that she has nurtured and bonded with is the final ingredient in an ancient Sith formula that promises to grant Darth Scabrous his greatest desire.
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. Now the rotting, ravenous dead are rising, driven by a bloodthirsty hunger for all things living—and commanded by a Sith Master with an insatiable lust for power and the ultimate prize: immortality . . . no matter the cost.
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!
I will not lie I skipped this book even though it is chronologically before the fatal alliance but I retreat it now I finished this book in 3 days you will not want to put it down it is amazing.
Awesome book stupid price
I'm never paying full hardcover price for an ebook ever. You think because you put borders out of business you can charge more then they did? Your nuts. I'm not paying any of the stupid prices from this lame apple book store.
Hardly a Star Wars novel
The author is obviously a horror writer. He throws in some Jedi in a Sith setting. What do you get, a Zombie horror novel that has nothing to do with Star Wars what so ever.
