For someone who has not yet read the original _Leia: Princess of Alderaan_ novel by Claudia Gray, this manga adaptation is a great alternative way to take in the story. The beautiful art style immediately draws you in with stunning colored pages from the start, and the display of Leia’s raw emotions really helps you feel for the young princess. Although Leia is clearly the star, seeing other familiar characters was a welcome addition (such as seeing a young and delightfully weird Holdo). This particular volume ended off on a chilling cliffhanger and I was relieved to notice that this was only the first volume in an entire series. Phew!
