The #1 New York Times best-selling author of Ahsoka takes on another iconic Star Wars hero!

When Padme Naberrie, Queen Amidala of Naboo, steps down from her royal position, she is asked by the newly-elected queen to become Naboo's next representative in the Galactic Senate. Padme is unsure about taking on the new role, but ultimately cannot refuse the opportunity to serve her people.

Together with her loyal handmaidens, Padme leaves her idyllic home for the glistening capital world of Coruscant, where she must learn to navigate the treacherous waters of politics and forge a new identity beyond the queen's shadow&

Review quote

Johnston not only gives us our clearest understanding of Padme - who until now had mostly been defined by her
relationship with Anakin - but also examines how female politicians are treated by the media, where their outfits
or "tone" somehow matter more than their policies. A must for Star Wars fans. * Yahoo! 2019 *

About E. K. Johnston

E. K. Johnston is the author of Star Wars: Ahsoka; The Afterward; That Inevitable Victorian Thing; and Exit, Pursued by a Bear. She 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.
