Together with her most loyal handmaidens, Padme must figure out how to navigate the treacherous waters of politics and forge a new identity beyond the queen's shadow.


Praise for Star Wars Queen's Shadow

"A fascinating perspective into the backstory of a beloved and well-known character within the Star Wars universe, this is a must-have for reluctant readers or for fans of the franchise."- School Library Journal


"The Star Wars universe...is all the brighter for a thoughtful and sentimental story about the women of Naboo that never-unlike Chancellor Palpatine-underestimates them."- The Mary Sue


"Nearly 20 years after the theatrical release of The Phantom Menace, we're finally getting a story worthy of Padm and her handmaidens."- The Daily Dot
