Star Wars: Queen’s Shadow UK cover revealed
From Amazon.co.uk (via Florian):
“Star Wars: Queen’s Shadow Paperback – 2 May 2019
The #1 New York Times best-selling author of Ahsoka takes on another iconic Star Wars hero!
When Padmé Naberrie, “Queen Amidala” of Naboo, steps down from her royal position, she is asked by the newly-elected queen to become Naboo’s next representative in the Galactic Senate. Padmé is unsure about taking on the new role, but ultimately cannot refuse the opportunity to serve her people.
Together with her loyal handmaidens, Padmé leaves her idyllic home for the glistening capital world of Coruscant, where she must learn to navigate the treacherous waters of politics and forge a new identity beyond the queen’s shadow…”
Considering the Episode II novelization is now non-cannon, wouldn’t it be cool if this book crossed over with the events of the AotC? It would be great to get Padmé’s perspective on the romance with Anakin. I’d also love to see the deleted scenes reaccommodated – of all the saga films, I feel AotC looses out most from its cut scenes. But I’m fine with most of this novel being devoted to events between I and II in her life. 10 years is a lengthy period!
