Star Wars: Queen's Shadow will be FREE for A Limited Time

May 4th is Star Wars Day and though Lucasfilm can't hold any special events because of the lockdown, they are offering a lot of great deals online. One of which is E.K. Johnston's book, Star Wars: Queen's Shadow and it will be available for free for a limited time.

According to, Johnston's book centered on the story of Padme Naberrie a.k.a. Queen Amidala will be available for free from May 1 to 8. Here's the official description of the book:

When Padmé Naberrie, "Queen Amidala" of Naboo, steps down from her position, she is asked by the newly-elected queen to become Naboo's representative in the Galactic Senate. Padmé is unsure about taking on the new role, but cannot turn down the request to serve her people. Together with her most loyal handmaidens, Padmé must figure out how to navigate the treacherous waters of politics and forge a new identity beyond the queen's shadow.

Here's the cover as well:

The book had received generally great reviews when it came out, and a lot of people say it has great insight on Padme as a character. With the mainstream films, Padme's story is always intertwined with Anakin's, and here we get to see her on her own, trying to get some political advantage despite being judged for her age, experience, and gender.
