    Description

    A prequel to the New York Times best-selling novel Queen's Shadow, further exploring the life of the iconic Padmé Amidala!

    When 14-year-old Padmé Naberrie wins the election for queen of Naboo, she adopts the name Amidala and leaves her family to the rule from the royal palace. To keep her safe and secure, she'll need a group of skilled handmaidens who can be her assistants, confidantes, defenders, and decoys. Each girl is selected for her particular talents, but it will be up to Padmé to unite them as a group. When Naboo is invaded by forces of the Trade Federation, Queen Amidala and her handmaidens will face the greatest test - of themselves and of each other.

    The interludes are great.....

    Good Star Wars audio performance. I very much enjoyed the interludes with Qui Gon, Obi Won, Maul, and others. Honestly, that was the best part of the book. The character development was slow and frustrating. It felt I was reading about about a bunch of girls on student council rather than running a planet.

    If you're a canon junkie, you can justify the read (aka listen) but if you're looking for an fun Star Wars read this is something you can skip.

    An excellent prequel for Ep 1.

    Love how the new cannon is expanding so much on the prequels, ginving emotional depth, and development to so many characters. This one is no exception. Narration and style of writing both are excellent.

    Meh

    boring but cute.... I've not been impressed with EKs otherworks (Althought I powered through because I love Ahsoka and Padme) but this story did not have much substance nor was it very exciting

    What just happened?!

    We were going along with a wonderful story and then they decided to cut massive chunks out of the timeline in efforts to what??? end the book?
    Then I have no idea what happened after about 2/3 into it. So disappointed for someone trying to follow the timeline from book one to the very end.

    Incredibly Terrible; do not purchase!

    Where is the character development? The conflict? this is a terribly written book. Padme is a beloved character and the mother of two of the strongest people in the galaxy, but this book makes her superficial and complacent. I still love the character, but this book has turned me away from ever purchasing another by this author.

    Please buy a different book to explore these characters, as this is not it...

    Great for Padmé fans!

    I absolutely love that we got to know the handmaidens! The narrator is amazing. The whole production is great.

    SUCH A GREAT AUDIOBOOK

    love the narrator and the story! Such a great time to be alive! if you are a clone wars saga lover and star wars nerd you HAVE to read this book and the sequels. E.K. Johnston did a marvelous job bringing Padme's story to a reality. Growing up I wanted to hear, read, and see more of Padme since she is my favorite star wars character! woohoo! Thank you!

    Excellent Premise, Choppy Finish

    There's a lot about this book that I like, but a lot that doesn't work.

    I really appreciate the effort put into expanding all of the Handmaidens. They are characters I've been fascinated with since I was a kid. The way they are all given unique backstories and skills was fantastic. It was great to see how each of them was recruited and how each of them contributed to the team with their skills. The set up is truly amazing. I wish it had gone in a better direction.

    What weakens the positive things Johnston does with the characters is her handling of the characters, especially Padme and Quarsh Panaka. He's almost treated as a villain even though he's just doing his job and he turns out to be right in the end. Padme acts as though he is her overbearing father who is stifling her instead of the head of her security. This weakens Padme's character considerably. She goes from being a strong politician to being bratty and incompetent. The unprofessional way she and the handmaidens behave with Panaka undercuts all the effort put into establishing their abilities. A situation where Padme wants to go to a concert and sneaks out is a glaring example of her being to immature and childish. I get that she's 14, but this is a planet where people mature early and are able to be elected to political office. The Padme presented here is not capable of running for student council, let alone governing a planet. A simple solution would have been to tell Panaka that she's going to the concert and working with him to make it happen as securely as possible, which is his job. Instead, this supposed politician snuck out like a little kid breaking curfew.

    These issues wouldn't be so bad if Padme was depicted as wrong in her immature moments and allowed to grow from them. But, as was the problem with Queen's Shadow, Padme is never allowed to be wrong. The narrative always treats her as right and anyone who doesn't completely agree with her is framed as wrong, like Panaka, even though the end of the story should have proved that he had been right in all of his precautions. He was responsible for getting those guns into the throne, making it possible for them to turn the tables on the Trade Federation, despite Padme's groundless complaints.

    The worst part of the book is the end where it overlaps with The Phantom Menace. This is where the story goes from being a quality, detailed narrative to being choppy and barely intelligible. It ends up as a series of scenes with nothing to connect them. More than a few times, I had to rewind and relisten to understand what was going on. Two more hours, at least, should have been added to flesh out the portion overlapping with TPM so there could have been a cohesive story. The way the story randomly jumped to A New Hope with Leia at the end was strange. If the book had shifted back and forth between Padme and Leia all throughout, it would have made more sense to book end the story with similar descriptions

    Overall, this is a series I WANT to like so much, but it's difficult. I do enjoy the prose and the emphasis on personal relationships between the characters.

    Get to know Amadalla

    Lots of interesting details about Amadalla’s life and personality. Exciting plot as well. You’ll be glad you tried it.

    just okay.

    my problem with cannon star wars novels is they are too short. they lack the amount of detail that the EU books had. I find myself not connecting as much with the characters. if I wasn't already a fan of Padme, these books would be hard to get into. this is also the first star wars audiobook that I really didn't care for the narrator. I know she voices Padme in the clone wars, but overall she doesn't do well with other voices, especially the male voices. it's the one time I wish I'd gotten the physical books instead. in comparison to dawn of the Jedi: into the void, in which January Lavoy did an amazing job voicing even the male characters, this performance just fell flat for me. overall I'd say it's a relaxing listen, good to pass the time, but it's not earth shattering, even for those who love the prequel timeline.

    seems like parts are missing

    seems like parts are missing, which are featured in other novels, that was a harsh cut in the end of the book.
