E.K. Johnston’s YA novel Queen’s Shadow, released earlier this year, shone a much-overdo spotlight on Padmé Amidala and her handmaidens. Well, cue the thunderous applause: StarWars.com is thrilled to announce that Johnston will return to these prequel-era favorites with Queen’s Peril, a prequel to Queen’s Shadow coming May 5, 2020. It’s available for pre-order now, and you can get a first look at the gorgeous front and back covers by Tara Phillips below.
While few details about Queen’s Peril are ready to be revealed, StarWars.com caught up with Johnston for a few questions about revisiting Our Queen.
