#RRSciFiMonth Waiting on Wednesday 11/14/18
Waiting On Wednesday” is a weekly meme that first originated at Breaking the Spine but has since linked up with “Can’t Wait Wednesday” at Wishful Endings now that the original creator is unable to host it anymore. Either way, this fun feature is a chance to showcase the upcoming releases that we can’t wait to get our hands on!
Master & Apprentice by Claudia Gray (April 18, 2019 by Del Rey)
Queen’s Shadow by E.K. Johnston (March 5, 2019 by Disney Lucasfilm Press)
Celebration of Sci-Fi Month continues with a pair of Star Wars prequel-era novels I’m featuring today, both of which I’m really looking forward to reading. First up, it’s another Star Wars novel by Claudia Gray, yeaaaaaah! She has become a Star Wars canon powerhouse author in recent years with Lost Stars, Bloodline, and Leia: Princess of Alderaan, and early next year she’s coming out with a book about Qui-Gon Jinn and Obi-Wan Kenobi. E.K. Johnston has been making her name as a Star Wars author too, with 2016’s young-adult novel Ahsoka, and pretty soon she’ll have another YA novel out about Padmé Amidala and her transition from queen to senator.
Star Wars: Master & Apprentice
“A new Star Wars novel, taking place before the events of The Phantom Menace, featuring legacy characters Qui-Gon Jinn and Obi-Wan Kenobi.”
Star Wars: Queen’s Shadow
“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.”
