Read on November 25, 2011 — I own a copy , read count: 2

When I first got this book I expected it to be like one of the small paperbacks in the Jedi Apprentice series; small, short, but still good. I didn't realize just how short it was! Nevertheless, I still had high hopes for it, me loving Padmé and all. Unfortunately, it wasn't as good as I thought it would be. Julianne Balmain didn't seem to know the character of Padmé very well. She seemed a little off the whole book and Balmain made it seem like Padmé and Amidala were two different people, which made absolutely no sense.

The story was boring, with no emotion, no excitement. She loses the amulet, Padmé and her handmaiden look for it and find it, the end. The amulet is an ugly locket-type thing. I've heard it described as a lump with robes around it, and that's just what it is.

Maybe this book could be enjoyable for other people, but to me it was a big disappointment.
