A Star Wars story about Padmé Amidala’s first term as Senator for the Galactic Republic.

Padmé Amidala is a former Queen of a planet with a pure democracy, who must transition to the sluggish and often two-faced galactic senate. The political craftsmanship presented in the story is refreshingly nuanced and thoughtful. The author also expands on the traditions and customs of Naboo, Padme’s home planet, as well as the relationships with her loyal handmaidens. It’s light on the space battles and heavier on the legislative maneuvering, but Star Wars fans who feel they never got enough Padmé should be very well satisfied.
