Star Wars: Queen''s Shadow
Star Wars: Queen''s Shadow | E. K. Johnston
16 posts | 11 read | 6 to read
Written by the #1 New York Times best-selling author of Ahsoka! When Padm 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. Padm is unsure about taking on the new role, but cannot turn down the request to serve her people. Together with her most loyal handmaidens, Padm must figure out how to navigate the treacherous waters of politics and forge a new identity beyond the queen's shadow.

Finally caught up with #StarWarsBuddyRead May pick (a month late - it didn't come in until June) and am now working on June's picks. This one was fine, I'd say 3.5 stars. The writing from Johnston is good but it wasn't necessarily the most riveting/exciting SW book. I'd read a book about Sabé post-epilogue in a heartbeat, though!

Book 1 for #bfc week 2 as well! #bookfitnesschallenge #bfcr2 #justbookit @wanderinglynn

Riveted_Reader_Melissa Right! I‘d love to read a Sabé book! 5mo

annkuch13 Seems doable! 6mo
bookandcat You know me I'll be lucky if I finish any in time! 😂😂 But I will give it a shot! 6mo
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @bookandcat I know, for some this is a doable idea and for some it‘s not at all. 6mo

NovelGirl82 I‘ll give it a shot!! 6mo
PSreads73 I wouldn‘t be able to keep up. I have too many #BOTM books to read also. Reading Ahsoka right now. Then I‘m starting the Darth Bane trilogy with Path of Destruction. Then Master & Apprentice. 6mo
InLibrisVeritas I can give it a shot, I am unreliable when it comes to books these days though 😅 6mo
SenatorMothma How do I get in on this buddy read? Just read and post? :) 5mo
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @SenatorMothma You got it! And if you are interested I‘ll tag you going forward. 5mo
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @PSreads73 I enjoyed both the picks this month, hopefully you‘ll enjoy Master & Apprentice when you get to it. I haven‘t read the Bane Trilogy yet. Do you want me to tag you in future posts? 5mo
SenatorMothma @Riveted_Reader_Melissa yes please, thanks! 5mo

NovelGirl82 I‘m starting way late, but I‘m starting Queen‘s Shadow tonight! Lol! I had review copies that I had got behind on. 🤦‍♀️ 7mo
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @NovelGirl82 That is perfectly understandable. I hope you enjoy it! 7mo
bookandcat I always have good intentions but I'm usually behind in the reading or get stuck reading for something else 😂 I enjoy being tagged and seeing the picks though! 7mo

Riveted_Reader_Melissa @bookandcat 😂ok, I‘ll keep tagging you then. 7mo
CSeydel Thanks for keeping me on the list! I paused my participation after Leia & the Thrawn books - I got Legends of Luke Skywalker from the library but didn‘t get too far before I had to return it. But a SW audiobook will be just the thing for our road trip in July! Work is crazy this week but over the weekend I‘ll look at the list & vote 🤩 7mo
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @CSeydel I do enjoy them on audiobook 7mo
ElyssaReads I am super behind but finish the school year Friday and will be diving back into my TBR :) 7mo
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @ElyssaReads Yay for summer breaks! 7mo

I quite enjoyed this peak into Padmé life, after the war on Naboo and before her ill fated love affair began. She was a strong Queen, Senator, and fighter for freedom, I can see where her daughter inherited many of her strengths and passions....and I was happy to see more strong woman in a galaxy far far away fleshed out and given center stage. Now I want a follow up on exactly what happened after that epilogue.

I was super excited to snag a special edition of the Star Wars Padme novel, Queen‘s Shadow, at Star Wars Celebration this year! Overall I didn‘t love the book *quite* as much as I was hoping to, but I loved all the characters, particularly handmaiden Sabe.

Riveted_Reader_Melissa Love that cover! 7mo

I wasn‘t entirely impressed with this, but I don‘t really care. I‘ll read anything that has to do with Leia or Padme.
