Now don't get too exited this isn't a revelation of the currently unnamed third novel that is due to be released later this year writen by Drew Karpyshyn. This is about the fairly new hard-core horror novel writen by Joe Schreiber as a prequal to Death Troopers, it does correspond with our Timeline directly - being set 3 years before Fatal Alliance and about a decade after the upcoming Deceived novel.
The question is do we include it with in the wiki? We have come to the conclusion that EU material for both KotOR and TOR will be included, and this is set around the same time as TOR, it mentions the Sacking of Coruscant and possibly features Sith belonging to our Sith Empire. However I am confident that neither TOR or its comics and 3 novels will draw reference to the goings on in Red Harvest, and their for would almost stand alone.
I am pretty neutral, I'm not too concerned either way - I would never read the book as horror isn't my thing, what does everyone else think?
Here is the synopsis from Wookieepedia:
- 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.
