I loved this book. 16 year old Leia formally demands (as is tradition) to become the next queen of Alderaan. She has to prove herself in mind, body and spirit, along the way she meets Amilyn Holdo and Kier Domadi her first love. Meanwhile her parents along with Mon Mothma are beginning the Rebellion.

It took me a bit to get into it but it was a good book about how Leia joined the rebellion and what shaped her as a princess. I loved Bail and Breha and we meet Holdo, which makes me even more sad about TLJ. If you don‘t know where to begin in this canon, this is a good starting point.

Riveted_Reader_Melissa It was a great YA Leia growing up book, I enjoyed it too. 1y

This backstory is not only about Leia but also about a budding rebellion. A trip to the planet Crait and Naboo, a little R2D2, a look at how her friendship with Amilyn Holdo came about, and a little romance round this story out quite well. There is a few other tidbits strewn about that makes this an interesting addition to the Star Wars Disney Canon.

julesG Wow, Japanese is cool. Is it difficult to learn? 3y
wanderinglynn @julesG I think it‘s hard because it‘s a completely different alphabet system, unlike going from English to French or even English to German where we share a common alphabet. In fact, the Japanese language relies on 3 different alphabets—hiragana, katakana and kanji. And it‘s really not an “alphabet” like the English alphabet, it‘s more a writing system. So for my poor brain, it‘s been a mega challenge. 3y

First book of 2020! And what a story it is! I didn‘t want it to end.

The author did a fantastic job of capturing 16 year-old Leia and how a teen would act, think, and feel. This story perfectly sets up the background to how Leia ultimately becomes the General of the rebel forces.

Had an event with Claudia Gray tonight and it was so fun! She's fantastic and spoke about going from writing fanfic to original novels to Star Wars tie ins. Bloodline is my fave but I really enjoyed this one as well. Loved Holdo and loved seeing Leia stumble (and recover) in her journey to be a leader in the rebellion.

I really enjoyed this one, although I'm a huge Star Wars fan and Leia has been an idol since I was little, so a bit of bias is at work here.

There are elements of YA because of Leia's age when the story takes place, but it's well done.

How did you feel about younger, just testing her wings Leia? How about the teen Holdo? What did you think about the first crush/romance?

Solid entry in the franchise, and a fun read, but this one just didn‘t engage me as much as Bloodline or Lost Stars. I‘m a thoroughly 80s kid, and I had trouble fitting the Leia in this book with the Leia I grew up with. I appreciated the portrayal of her prior interactions with Tarkin, and in the legislature.

#StarWarsBuddyRead
@callielafleur @alicia @bookandcat @DivaDiane @ElyssaReads @NovelGirl82 @wtimblin @trioxin_sematary @Shadowfat

CSeydel The portrayal of Holdo as a flaky, Luna-Lovegood-esque character utterly confused me. And I had mixed feelings about the Keir Domati storyline. I did enjoy seeing Leia‘s parents‘ role in the political landscape of that time, and her relationship with Mon Mothma. (edited) 4y
callielafleur I really loved this, and I could see how it was written for a younger audience. I thought that the portrayal of Holdo was interesting, given how little of her we got personality-wise in Last Jedi, other than her purple hair. She was a blank canvas that Claudia Grey could really fill in. 4y
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @CSeydel I liked it, in the film Holdo always seems a bit ethereal and almost like she‘s not paying attention, at least until she essentially smacks Poe up alongside the head....this backstory felt right to me, and like she could fly under the radar for a long time before people realize what she‘s capable of. And yes, I loved seeing Leila‘s adoptive parents and their relationship. 4y
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @callielafleur I liked it, it felt like it all fit for me. And I liked that we got to see the younger and still learning her power and skills Leia. For me it worked much better than the YA Wonder Women that was out last year, you could see the still developing, but the peak at what was to come. (edited) 4y

I love Leia, so it‘s probably not a surprise I loved this tale of a young uncertain teen Leia trying to navigate her way through an complicated galaxy. I love seeing our heroes when they were just learning to be the people they would become, and not yet so sure of themselves, this one did all of that and still managed to tie itself into Gray‘s other novel Bloodline, and the latest film with Leia and Holdo‘s early friendship.

This is such a fun book. It's much lighter than Bloodlines, and really gets into how Leia becomes the woman we see in the movies.

I was really surprised by how well it ties all the movies together. There are references to the original trilogy, the prequel trilogy, Rogue One, and The Last Jedi that really help tie things together.

This is a super fun book for anyone who loves Princess Leia!

This is such a fun book about Leia undergoing the trials necessary to be officially declared heir of the Alderaanian throne and discovering her parents involvement in the rebellion. Great character development of Leia & her parents (which I really enjoyed seeing), & so many connections to the original trilogy, prequel trilogy, sequel trilogy, & Rogue One. Definitely recommend for Star Wars fans, esp. if you love Leia & want more of her backstory.

The “Journey to” books are so well done. I especially loved this look into teenage Leia and the Easter eggs hidden for fans of Star Wars. The audio production was excellent as well- sound effects and a soundtrack enhance the audio booking experience.

Finally finished this yesterday morning,it took a little while to get going but once it did it had me hooked.This is set between Ep III Revenge Of The Sith & Ep IV A New Hope,16yr old Leia is undertaking the testing before being officially inducted as the Heir to the throne when she falls in love with a shy boy in her class. But after uncovering her parents secret rebel leanings, tragedy rocks her world & she must choose the which path to take.
