    This is something to look forward to. It's the first Star Wars horror novel. Must say that's a really cool cover. I'm curious what it's about.

    I'm interested now.

    There's a lot they could do with the horror genre in that setting.

    Description:

    "From the first appearance of Darth Vader in the groundbreaking movie Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope, Star Wars fans have known what terror feels like -- and they loved it. But never before has Star Wars publishing ventured into the unknown territory of true horror . . . until now.

    When the Imperial prison barge Purge breaks down in a distant, uninhabited part of space, its only hope seems to lie with a Star Destroyer found drifting, derelict and seemingly abandoned. But when a boarding party is sent to scavenge for parts, only half of them come back -- bringing with them a horrific disease so lethal that within hours, nearly all aboard the Purge will die. And death is only the beginning.

    For aboard the Star Destroyer, amid its vast creaking emptiness that isn't really empty at all. For the dead are rising, soulless, unstoppable, and unspeakably hungry."

    Sounds like Resident Evil meets Star Wars lol

    Have any of you read the Star Wars Legacy series?
    I just finished the first part, Broken.
    It was really good. As Star Wars sagas go it was a better story than films 1,2, 3 and 6. Only beaten by movies 4 and 5 and the first KOTOR game in my opinion.

    I was thinking actually that this was going to be about kind of a Jedi who lost it and just killed stormtroopers at random and became some kind of serial killer... I was thinking something among those lines... I think that would have been cool.

    I don't like the legacy series, because I simply don't like the characters and think it's not canon. I know what George Lucas had in mind after episode VI and that is not it. If other people enjoy it, that's good for them...
