First Chapter of Red Harvest Online

The first chapter of Star Wars: Red Harvest, by Joe Schreiber, is now online, along with the back cover art. With the horror novel coming out on December 28th, a nice marketing push is expected. An eight page excerpt from Red Harvest was included in the paperback version of Star Wars: Death Troopers, which was released last week. Now we see the cover, which includes praise for Death Troopers. The entire synopsis of the book and the full cover art can be viewed below.

The full cover art for Red Harvest

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.
