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 Scabrousís 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 thatís worse than fatal: it doesnít 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.

This story occurs approximately 3,645 years before the Battle of Yavin.

Review by Darth Kondorr, Poland, 2017:

The book started out quite intriguing. The author managed to lay some thick atmosphere on the Sith academy, which was the main backdrop for this tale. But not even after 100 pages, I could see that there was no real plan behind it. We were just thrown from one senseless and gory massacre till the next one. The few characters that got kinda interesting got killed rather fast and those that made it rough mostly did not bother me. Lots of side stories cut off by death without any conclusion, which would be positively tragic, if the book had any interesting arcs to get it to the end.
The gory element also seemed extremely repetitive and it was a challenge and a chore to get through its barely 260 pages. One of the worst books I have ever read and the dark exception to the rule, that The Old Republic books rule!

Rating: 1 / 5

Review by Robert Dumas, US, 2011:

It is very pleasent to be able to read of the way of the Sith. Since most are off the Jedi fighting the sith, This truely lets us see how dark and twisted the Sith can actualy be buy using there magic and postions. And it is a great insight on what happens when even one of the most powerful of his time loses his abilty to control something the acients could not control. I like to read of the Sith but even this one can scare the s**t out of you.

Rating: 4 / 5
