So I just had to text someone last night and be like was there only one R2-D2 or does everyone have an R2-D2? I also found out that Padmé and Anakin and Palpatine are part of the larger Star Wars universe and not just part of this book series.
But I also googled R2-D2, and I’m sure someone has watched a Star Wars movie even if they didn’t pay attention to it, and I’m fairly sure that R2-D2 is the kind of character that you’d cry for if he died.
Honestly, I signed up for this tour because one of my closest friends is a big Star Wars fan, so I was like let’s bond. And while I’m not going to be playing the video games anytime soon, but I will totally watch the movies because of this book.

Mini Book Review:
So this book is probably going to be a lot better for you if you have some idea about Star Wars or have read the first couple of books in this series specifically. That being said, even if don’t know a lot about this, Star Wars has had a large enough impact on pop culture that you’ll have a friend who can walk you through most things.
This was an interesting book regardless. I love the way you see how Sabé gets slightly resentful of what Padmé is asking her to do. I found it so weird that Padmé and Anakin have kept their marriage such a big secret that there’s no reason for them to officially contact each other; I mean I understand but I’d go insane.
But I liked this! I liked this enough to want to watch Star Wars on the weekend. I’m going to start off with Clone Wars because and ease myself into the rest. I loved Sabé at the end and how she said, my hands are yours. Please don’t ask me for them again. That gave me massive feels!
A peace-loving senator faces a time of war in another thrilling Padmé Amidala adventure from the author of the New York Times best-sellers Queen’s Peril and Queen’s Shadow!
Padmé is adjusting to being a wartime senator during the Clone Wars. Her secret husband, Anakin Skywalker, is off fighting the war, and excels at being a wartime Jedi. In contrast, when Padmé gets the opportunity to see the casualties on the war-torn front lines, she is horrified. The stakes have never been higher for the galaxy, or for the newly-married couple.
Meanwhile, with Padmé on a secret mission, her handmaiden Sabé steps into the role of Senator Amidala, something no handmaiden has done for an extended period of time. While in the Senate, Sabé is equally horrified by the machinations that happen there. She comes face to face with a gut-wrenching decision as she realizes that she cannot fight a war this way, not even for Padmé.
And Chancellor Palpatine hovers over it all, manipulating the players to his own ends…
About E.K. Johnston:
E.K. Johnston 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.You can follow her on Twitter (@ek_johnston) to learn more about Alderaanianpolitical theory than you really need to know, on Tumblr (ekjohnston) if you’re just here for the pretty pictures, or online at ekjohnston.ca.
