‘Queen’s Shadow’ does a great job of fleshing out Padmè’s character outside of Anakin Skywalker. The book provides the time that we didn’t see in the movies in Padmè’s life where she transitions from queen to senator. We learn about her fears and hopes and wants. We also see her friendship with her handmaids and those learn more about those handmaids themselves, Sabè specifically. The only really problem with ‘Queen’s Shadow’ is that it’s kind of boring. It’s very political heavy and because it deals with Padmè before the Clone Wars, we don’t get much or any action. It’s not a long read but it felt longer then it was because it wasn’t all that entertaining.

Padme is the most amazing character in the Star Wars universe. This book covers the period between her stepping down as Queen of the Naboo and her rise as a member of the Galactic Senate. Star Wars books are my weakness, and this title has been my favourite so far!
