About this BookThe 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, none more so than the fulfillment of Darth Scabrous's fanatical dream, which is about to become a nightmarish reality.
Unlike the other Jedi sidelined to the Agricultural Corps--reserved for 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 has a fate that is truly worse than death: 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...regardless the cost.
