Sith Lord Darth Scabrous has discovered an ancient Sith secret which he believes will allow him to live forever but which instead unleashes a plague of ravenous undeath on the students of a Sith Academy.
The character of Jedi Knight Rojo Trace makes for an enjoyable counter point to the lesser characters in the book, being a pragmatic and single-minded Jedi the likes of which we don't see too often. I also enjoyed the concept that the zombie plague is a result of a Sith attempt at immortality.
This book is something of a prequel to 'Death Troopers' but doesn't stand up well in comparison to that book. Where 'Death Troopers' focused on a small group of likeable survivors aboard an atmospherically claustrophobic derelict spaceship, here we're introduced to a much wider cast of characters, each one less well conceived and less believable than the last, all milling about in the snow. Also, there's only so many dozen times you can read about someone gorily battling slavering zombies before getting bitten and then turning into a slavering zombie before the whole thing gets irritatingly repetitive. Throw in elements such as an unintimidating Sith Lord whose Darth name is only out-ridiculoused by the discovery that he's following the teachings of one 'Darth Drear', a Jedi apprentice who's wetter than a kipper and, of all things, a psychic flower and you have a recipe for disaster. Even this book's best element, the hardcore Jedi Knight Rojo Trace, is ruined by the fact that the author shamelessly and inexplicably lifts dialogue for him verbatim from the movie 'Taken'.
Put simply, trash.
Lazy writing and blatant plagiarism.
Over all this book was quite a let down.
