This is not the best of books. If you're both a Star Wars and Zombie fan then this book may seem perfect, I know I am. However this book is not that fun to read. It takes dozens of chapters for just one zombie to be killed, the descriptions of events are not that well written. It's just not that fun to read.

Being a Star Wars fan I have purchased the entire collection of books published so far. I have read around half of them until now (in chronological order) and I have to say that this book is horrible. To star with your eyes will get a heavy workout having to constantly squint at the ridiculously small font size which is a nuisance. The book itself is so vague, the story line so shallow and for the first 100+ pages you kind of get to know some mediocre characters that do not feel like they belong to SW universe. Then all of a sudden two famous characters are introduced (Solo and Chewbacca) with no hints whatsoever in the previous pages. After getting over the initial shock of seeing these two characters mentioned I started to have some hope that from now on I would be able to enjoy a nice Solo-Chewie story (with a hint of horror to it). How wrong was I?

The two characters appear to be sort of plunged in the book for the sake of it (or to make the book appear a bit more Star War-ish, because let's face it, without the duo this book would not even feel like a SW story at all). The duo seem to be completely detached from their past or future, and they just simply float around in the pages (as a result of what I think is the author's lack of understanding of the characters and probably his imagination).

By the end of the book the Solo-Chewie characters are simply discarded without any thought and no links to hopes for the future.

The book is so shallow, the story-line barely stands together and it would be a poor read even for a horror story. After I finished reading it I felt disillusioned and incredulous at how it was possible that Lucas Books had allowed this book to be published at all.

Well, from the moment I first heard about this novel, I was suspicious of the motives of the author. What was the point of doing a Star Wars horror novel?

There is a point. Who says, the Star Wars universe cannot have some horror lurking within the darkest depths of space. Admittedly some of the characters are losely drawn, and it is easy to tell who is going to be bait for the creatures now ravaging the prison barge. I think if there had been another seventy or so pages before the main event, as a reader I might have found a little more to emotionally latch onto.

That aside, this book flies past at such a speed, it is a joy to read. And it is quite unpleasant in places, genuinely vile in fact. I wish the story itself had never actually used the Z word, but thats a minor quibble.

About a hundred pages into the story, the ships doctor goes to solitary conifinement, aka The Hole, and finds two prisoners inside. I will not ruin who exactly it is, but the story takes on a whole new level of excitiement when these established Star Wars characters arrive on the scene.

Not always a perfect story, but one I suspect I might read again, and it leaves the door open for a whole new range of Star Wars storytelling, just because they are Science Fiction stories, doesnt mean they cannot cross genres.

This is a title you don't expect in the Star Wars universe.

To be honest, I bought the book because of the totally awesome cover art. I mean look at it, it rocks!

Upon starting the book, I noticed the one thing I hate most. Relative large amount of whitespace and a big font. When you see this in a book you know they (publisher) do this to increase the volume of the book. I don't like that. Always a bad sign.

The book reads like a train. Fast-paced action, page after page. You'll notice this immediately. Every 3 or 4 pages, a new chapter starts. Action action, not a bad thing per se, because you can actually feel the adrenaline in the book. But it's a bit anti Star Wars.

The plot is ... meh ...
Again, this is to be expected, it's zombies in Star Wars. Trust me when I say that at a certain point, when two famous Star Wars characters are introduced into the plot, you'll probably say something like "What in the name of ..." Trust me, you will say something like that.

My first reaction was disappointment. It's such a cheap trick to "lift up" the story.
But as the story unfolds, you kinda appreciate the famous characters in the novel, because without them, it would be a lot harder to relate to the characters.

Anyway, it was an entertaining read.
Nowhere near the league of T. Zahn or some of the other wellknow books, but entertaining.

Recomended for Star Wars fans with imagination.
