As someone who went through her mid-to-late teen years with the Star Wars prequels, I freely admit that a book starring Padmé Amidala is one that I have been waiting for for over 10 years, and The Queen's Shadow absolutely did not disappoint me!

While not a particularly fast-paced, action-packed book, TQS provides some much-longed-for background on a character that, despite being monumentally important to the Skywalker clan and the overall Star Wars legacy, has long been overshadowed by the man she later married and the men who cast long shadows throughout the entire saga. Here, TQS sheds some light on a group of remarkable women of AGFFA. I enjoyed every page from beginning to end, learning more about Padmé's life before she became caught up in the drama of Anakin Skywalker, everyone's favorite walking human disaster. Here we see Padmé as her own person, and not one-half of a doomed romance, or the incubator of two of the galaxy's greatest heroes. Here, Padmé is her own person, and she does not fail to shine.
