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.

“Brilliant . . . This book combines two of my favorite things on earth: the Star Wars universe and the undead.”—Tommy Wirkola, director of Dead Snow
