Star Wars

Star Wars fans, Padmé Amidala fans in particular, can rejoice. We are getting a third and final installment of EK Johnston’s acclaimed Padmé series. The author revealed the title of the new book via her Instagram. The finale book in the trilogy will be called Queen’s Hope.

Queen’s Hope will be set during the Clone Wars. While Anakin excels at leading the clone troopers to victory on the battlefront, Padmé must deal with the repercussions left behind on the various war-torn planets. Padmé enlists the help of her most loyal handmaiden, Sabé, to serve as her double while Padmé embarks on a secret mission.

In a conversation with Star Wars, Johnston dived more into what fans can expect from this final installment.

Coming back to Padmé for a third time was like three more times than I ever thought I was going to get. Every time I come in to write a Padmé novel it’s exciting, it’s a little bit terrifying, and this one was the most daunting because it’s the war book. It’s the book where things start to fall apart. Up until this point it’s been kind of the upswing of her story, but as soon as Attack of the Clones happens, as soon as Attack of the Clones ends, you start to get into the actual tragedy part and I…I didn’t know how I was going to feel about that.

The author has plenty to say about all of the intricate aspects in Padmé’s life, including her relationship with Anakin Skywalker. If you’re keen to know more about Queen’s Hope including it’s original name and it’s place within the Star Wars universe, we highly recommend reading the full interview.

Queen’s Hope will be available on November 2nd, 2021, soon after the second book in the series, Queen’s Peril, is released in paperback on September 8th. For more book news, click here.
