Red Harvest Literature Review

Red Harvest (3,645 BBY)

Written by Joe Schreiber

A prequel to Death Troopers by quite a bit, none of the characters appear – it is simply all about the virus. Although it’s a prequel, it has to top Death Troopers without being the same thing. So how to accomplish this? Easy. Put the plague on a planetful of Sith.

Oh and I’m not a fan of Anderson’s Star Wars work overall and this didn’t win me over.

Raina clutched her bulging stomach. The journey on this cruiser was tough enough without the turbulence. She had to take it though. Her baby depended on her. She looked around the rest of the cruiser at the other passengers. Refugees and those looking to better their life by changing scenery clogged the economy class section of the Will to Live. She was unaccustomed to being this close to so many of these people. Being of upper-class blood, she rarely saw much of the downtrodden. But if she wanted to keep her journey secret, there was no better way. No one she knew would look for her down here.
