Book Review: Queen's Peril (Star Wars Disney Canon Novel) by E.K. Johnston
Title: Queen's Peril (Star Wars Disney Canon Novel)
Author: E.K. Johnston
Stars: 5 stars for Tweens and 3 1\2 Adult
As a star ways fan I wouldn't want to be asked to write a star wars novel because of how high passions fly when it comes to the series.
This book is the perfect read for a tween. It has a wonderful blend of themes for tween to enjoy without all the swearing that has been found in other tween novels.
The story has more information about Padme that movie fan might be excited to read while others will not. The last quarter of the book runs next to the Phantom Menace which kids loved but adults disliked. You could say this is a expanse of the story movie giving reader insight into the queens life before.
As an adult the story read more like a girl who is trying to prove how strong and smart she is but for tweens they will be able to connect with the story line better.
My daughter gave the story a 5 and I give it a 3 1\2 because the story could have been handled a little better without making the queen feel forced into being a look at how strong I am girl!
Thank you to Netgalley for a chance to Review E.K. Johnston Queens Peril.
When fourteen-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.
About The Author:
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.
