Staff Reviews


As a fan of all things Star Wars, I couldn't wait to get my hands on this book. Set just a few years after the events of The Phantom Menace, Queen's Shadow follows Padmé Naberrie, the former Queen of Naboo, as she transitions from her role in planetary politics to broader, galactic affairs. Along with her loyal handmaidens, Padmé travels to Coruscant to begin her life in the Senate. Once there, she must learn to navigate this new, more complex political field, allying herself with other senators in order to fight for the causes she believes in. There's a warmth to this story that was refreshing, and though we're spared from the blaster fire and epic space battles of most Star Wars stories, the stakes are just as high! I could not put this book down.

When Padmé Naberrie, "Queen Amidala" of Naboo, steps down from her position, she is asked by the newly-elected queen to become Naboo's representative in the Galactic Senate. Padmé is unsure about taking on the new role, but cannot turn down the request to serve her people. Together with her most loyal handmaidens, Padmé must figure out how to navigate the treacherous waters of politics and forge a new identity beyond the queen's shadow.

About the Author


E.K. Johnston had several jobs and one vocation before she became a published writer. If she's learned anything, it's that things turn out weird sometimes, and there's not a lot you can do about it. Well, that and how to muscle through awkward fanfic because it's about a pairing she likes.

You can follow Kate on Twitter (@ek_johnston) to learn more about Alderaanian political theory than you really need to know, on Tumblr (ekjohnston) if you're just here for the pretty pictures, or online at ekjohnston.ca.
