Book Review – Queen’s Peril

Star Wars: The Padme Trilogy #2

Padme has been elected Queen of Naboo and with the help of her security head, creates a team of handmaidens to help protect her. When the Trade Federation starts to poke at Naboo, Padme joins in the political games in order to keep her planet safe.

This was very much a YA read, heavily focused on the teenaged girl audience. I made the mistake of reading these out of order, but I enjoyed this one even though I was not the target demographic. I like Star Wars but I’m not a purist so I felt that this was a great story for Padme. I liked reading about her and her life before Anakin. She was going places and I’m sort of sad that one boy comes along and ruins it for her.

I don’t have a ton to say about this one. I think that if you don’t mind reading books that include teenaged girls, make up, dresses, and periods, then this will probably be a fun read for you. If you don’t like those things, then skip it. But I will say that there’s a bit of torture and loads of political intrigue in this book, too, which made it quite interesting.

I gave this one a 3 out of 5. It get’s a 3 because the non-teenaged girl stuff was really good! Also, it’s rated down partially because I’m sort of tired of all the Star Wars audiobooks having the low-rumble sound effect in the background of the narration. It’s annoying, it’s unnecessarily loud (I’m sure it’s damaging my ears), and we don’t need that noise.
