So Attack of the Clones wasn't great. And the Anakin/Padme relationship was kind of a dud. Well, along comes EK Johnston to finish off her Amidala trilogy with the novel Queen's Hope (a.k.a. The Handmaidens' Tale), in which we hopefully get a little more insight into the awkward courtship of Jedi and Senator. As the series comes to a close, we talk about the character of Padme and whether or not this trilogy has done a good job fleshing her out as a three-dimensional person and not a just sequence of stiff line readings and wardrobe changes.

The Skywalker saga may be over, but there are enough books to keep Star Wars fans satisfied for years to come. Chad, Ryan, and Beth have started a series to keep you up to date on all the action. Join our book club as we run down the best that canon, legends, and comics have to offer.
