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.
You can follow Kate on Twitter (@ek_johnston) to learn more about Alderaanian political theory than you really need to know, on Tumblr (ekjohnston) if you're just here for the pretty pictures, or online at ekjohnston.ca.
"Solid and intriguing. . . . this look into Padmé's ascent both honors its source material and colors in its scope. Johnston builds Padmé into an icon worthy of her reputation while underscoring her strong camaraderie with the handmaidens."--Kirkus Reviews
PRAISE FOR AHSOKA "Ahsoka is a character exploration with sides of action, politics, and drama with an emotional center that gives me a greater appreciation for Ahsoka's role in the galaxy."--Nerdist
PRAISE FOR AHSOKA "A great treat for young--and not so young--Star Wars fans that provides a thrilling backstory for a compelling character."--Kirkus
PRAISE FOR AHSOKA "Full of action, emotion, and yes, plenty of answers, Ahsoka is a must-read for any Star Wars fan."
PRAISE FOR QUEEN'S SHADOW "It's not hyperbole to say that when Queen's Shadow was announced last year at San Diego Comic-Con, there was not only excessive happiness, but an almost frenzied collective exhale. This novel by E.K. Johnston is long overdue and with the expectations of a whole generation of Star Wars fans weighing on her, she delivers with a deeply moving and thoughtful look at this important character and her loyal Handmaidens."--The Force.net
PRAISE FOR QUEEN'S SHADOW "[Padmé is] a fascinating character worthy of much more attention--not just to see those details come to life, but watch her courtly arc from defiant yet reserved Queen to shrewd, adventurous politician truly shine. Hopefully, Queen's Shadow is just the beginning, even if it's taken us 20 years to get there."--iO9
PRAISE FOR QUEEN'S SHADOW "Johnston's observation of Padmé is so pitch-perfect that she could herself have been a handmaiden. Consequently, both Padmé and Sabé emerge from under the Queen's shadow with real heart, and they wear their fallibility and sense of public duty on their heavily embroidered sleeves."--The Mary Sue
"Throughout Ahsoka and Queen's Shadow before this, E.K. Johnston has shared with us her ability to craft characters that feel much more like old friends than fictional protagonists. . . . With Queen's Peril, Johnston has reached a whole new level."--Youtini
