Schriber's prequel to Death Troopers takes place during the days of the Old Republic, thousands of years before the events of the original Star Wars trilogy. It is a time when both the Jedi Order and the Sith number in the thousands and wage a seemingly never-ending battle with each other for the fate of the galaxy. One of the Sith Lords, Darth Scabrous, has devoted years of research to unlocking the secrets to immortality. His machinations will draw a young failed Jedi and her ability to communicate with plants into Scabrous' vile quest. Scabrous' research unlocks a fatal virus that doesn't just kill, it transforms and it hungers… Red Harvest is an enjoyable gory and macabre thriller. Readers don't need to have much understanding of the time of the Old Republic and the Expanded Universe to enjoy the book, but it certainly helps. [If you enjoy this, you may also wish to try Death Troopers.] -- recommended by Corey G. - Gere Branch Library
