A thrilling new Star Wars novel by acclaimed author 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.
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 *
