    1 thought on “Moving Target: A Princess Leia Adventure

    1. A look at one of Leia's missions between Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi. I quite liked the characterization of Leia and her crewmembers are pretty interesting too. As is pointed out several times in the story, they are fighting a war and that means a lot of tough decisions, and I think this book did a good job of portraying that (while staying acceptable for its middle grade/YA target audience).I totally bought this on release day just to do my part for "Hell yeah Leia is awesome ple [...]

    2. I enjoy Star Wars books, but this one was not one of my favorites. I did the audio and usually that is a plus for these books, but I didn't care for the narrator. She couldn't quite get the voices down. The story also felt a little one dimensional and it felt overly orchestrated. This was probably 2.5 stars but I'll round up to 3 stars.

    3. Surprisingly good. Yes, it's a YA book, but it doesn't pull many more punches than I remember "adult" EU books doing. Castellucci is very blunt about this being war, with sacrifices being required on scales large and small. Leia's arc is really about just how much sacrifice is acceptable, both sacrifices she'll ask others to make and the ones she'll make herself. And it actually does fill a bit of a hole left behind in the original trilogy: what was Leia doing while Lando and Chewie were trackin [...]

    4. This story takes place between The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi. It effectively takes the place of Shadows of the Empire. This was good. It's basically telling the story of how they amassed the fleet you see in Jedi without the Empire finding out. To do this Leia makes a decision I found sketchy ethically. I cringed with a silent oh no, no, no going on in my head as I read her plan. You watched her struggle with her decision when her worst fears are realized. It was also a reminder [...]

    5. “Moving Target” is another book in the current “new canon” of Star Wars novels released as lead-ins and tie-ins to the new movie “The Force Awakens”. It is written by Cecil Castellucci and Jason Fry, whose other contribution to the new canon, “The Weapon of a Jedi”, was mediocre at best.“Moving Target” is somewhat better than the previous novel but not by much. Set between “The Empire Strikes Back” and “The Return of the Jedi”, “Moving Target” follows Princess Lei [...]

    6. Jos jedna zabavna pričica. Ali nekako najnaivnija od ove tri. Sama Leja je fino prikazana i njena unutrašnja borba i sumnje su dosta fino realizovane. Ostali likovi su zabavni ali dosta jednodimenzionalni, skoro karikature.Nije loše ali možete slobodno zaobići.

    7. Now that's what I'm talking about! This story had real stakes and real consequences, and Leia had to make some difficult decisions. The best of the three new books about the OT trio. I also really liked that it acknowledged the trauma Leia experienced while imprisoned on the Death Star.

    8. Read more reviews @ The BiblioSanctum.3.5 stars. Much like Smuggler’s Run, this story features an older Leia relating a story back to another party prior to the events in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. In this case, it’s a droid attempting to work on a memoir about one of the most important members of the rebellion. Set between The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi, Princess Leia is the last surviving member of House Organa, and finds herself learning to embrace a new role as a rebel [...]

    9. I liked the prologue and epilogue best. They're good teasers for the upcoming film. However I found the core story lacking. It was too rushed - too many events on too few pages. There was no time for the characters to fully develop or for the reader to come to care for them. Thankfully there were some familiar faces to make up for that. Otherwise the story was good and it gave us a glimpse of Leia's internal battle - duty vs love. It fits well within the overall story. If you're not a hardcore f [...]

    10. These books are amazing! Especially this one. I loved the writing and it showed a different side of Leia which I found out that I really liked. The epilogue is spectacular and the drawings, done by a guy my mom knew, are so perfectly drawn it makes the book even better. Read this book! May the Force be with you!

    11. Star Wars: Moving Target - A Princess Leia Adventure is one of the four kids’ novels in the Journey to Star Wars: the Force Awakens series, and is therefore one of the earliest entries in the new canon. It tells the story of a covert Rebel disinformation mission involving Princess Leia shortly before the beginning of Return of the Jedi. The characterisation of Leia is spot on - an inspiring leader as well as a plucky adventurer who has no qualms about dispatching a stormtrooper in cold blood - [...]

    12. Leia: that entire ship of rebels was just sacrificed to protect me. I am sad.Me: I'm sad too. Poor Leia.Leia: To distract myself, I will mastermind a plan that will revolve around sacrificing a LOT of rebel sympathizers for the greater good! Me: wait whatLeia: Hm a lot of rebel sympathizers are dying. That's sad. But I knew this would happen and it's for the greater good!Me: whatLeia: A lot of rebel sympathizers are dying! This is terrible! We can't stop this but WE WILL GO DOWN FIGHTINGMe: um O [...]

    13. 3.5 starsThe book is set between The Empire Strike Back and The Return of the Jedi. Out of the three new junior novels, Moving Target is the most complicated in terms morality, personal responsibility and sacrifice. After seeing people getting hurt while protecting her and learning about the existence of the second Death Star, Leia comes up with the plan to draw the Imperial forces to the other side of the galaxy so that the Rebellion can gather its forces in secret. She poses as a recruiter for [...]

    14. Moving Target is a middle grade novel focusing on Princess Leia and takes places between Empire and Return.The Rebel Alliance has just learned of the second Death Star, and they need a plan…and Leia has one. This story is rather short but it focuses on Leia’s plan to become a moving target for the Empire to focus on while the Rebellion readies itself for another go at destroying the power of the Imperial fleet. We also get to see Nein Nub, and three new characters help her along the way. Lei [...]

    15. I enjoyed this one more thanSmuggler's Run: A Han Solo & Chewbacca Adventure, it had a bit darker feel to it (which makes it feel less YA-ish) and more known characters (well, some - Nien Nunb and Mon Mothma). It did get a bit too whiney at times though.Highlighted funny quote:"What a ridiculous sentiment. 'Adventures' is just a different name for 'terrible ideas'"Highlighted serious quote:"But you can't let your grief stop you from living. I've learned that. We have to live for those we've [...]

    16. На 27 декември 2016, на 60 годишна възраст завинаги ни напусна актрисата Кери Фишър, изиграла безсмъртия образ на принцеса Лея в поредицата „Междузвездни Войни”. Макар, че за милиони фенове и киномани по света името й винаги ще се асоциира със Star Wars, Кери Фишър се изявява и като [...]

    17. If this is what passes as a junior novel in the new canon, I am actually impressed and looking forward to reading more of them instead of shrugging them off as lower quality.This story delivers an entertaining party, a well-executed chase, moral deliberations and plenty of drama from start to finish. It does a fantastic job moving Leia from The Empire Strikes Back to Return of the Jedi, while making the rebellion appear diverse in motivations and outlooks, but united in a common purpose.A solid, [...]

    18. A really good story. I like the characterization of Leia and the connection to the movies is done well. Not very catching but a fast and easy read.

    19. Some of the best Leia I've read, with some nice callbacks to the Leia miniseries. Also, it made me really want a political thriller starring Mon Mothma set between ROTS and ANH

    20. I picked this book for two reasons: one is that I need material for the Princess Leia doctorate I am pursuing, and the other is that the events take place between Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi. Firstly, I did learn more about Princess Leia, although not to the degree of Claudia Gray's "Bloodline" and "Leia," and secondly the plot of the novel isn't as exciting as it hoped, and it only nominally ties together Empire and Jedi. To be fair, the book is intended for younger readers, and [...]

    21. One of Leia’s adventures between Empire and Return of the Jedi. The part with the bats nearly did me in. Ew!!!!

    22. One of a trio of middle grade books released as part of Force Friday and the Journey to Star Wars: The Force Awakens publishing initiative (the others are Star Wars: The Weapon of a Jedi: A Luke Skywalker Adventure and Star Wars: Smuggler's Run: A Han Solo Adventure), Cecil Castellucci and Jason Fry's Star Wars: Moving Target: A Princess Leia Adventure takes place between the events of Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back and Episode VI: Return of the Jedi and finds Princess Leia and Nien Nunb on [...]

    23. Podría considerar como año de lectura al 2016, un buen año. Releí casi todas las novelas que poseo de Jane Austen a principio de año (a excepción de Mansfield Park), leí la novelización del episodio V y VI de Star Wars, y comencé "Una Aventura de la Princesa Leia". Leí a varios autores que llevaba rato queriendo leer y no había podido: Gaskell, Hemingway, Gaiman Fue un año de lecturas muy variadas. Pero al mismo tiempo, aún teniendo todo esto a favor, el 2016 me dejó un sinsabor qu [...]

    24. As always, Princess Leia is awesome.In the wake of Empire Strikes Back, Leia is a guarded and protected figure of hope for the Rebel Alliance. More than anything, she wants to do something, but she is too valuable to the Alliance. Between the desire to fight the Empire, search for Han Solo, and assist the Rebellion, Leia finds herself struggling with the question of duty vs. desire. She soon finds her chance to help the Rebellion and give the Empire a little what for, but it is the inner struggl [...]

    25. Okay - so I'm a bit biased - but it's LEIA!!This was a fabulous story. Set between ESB and ROTJ - we get a lot of insights into Leia's personality and relationships with those around her. I loved seeing her interact with Luke (though it was just a tiny bit). She is assertive, strong, intelligent, and concerned about the people of her world.At first, I was just a bit worried about the fact that she didn't have more ethical concerns about the major plan in this story (using unsuspecting possible r [...]

    26. This was a lot of fun and I think it did a great job of highlighting why Leia's diplomatic skills are badass, in addition to her fighting skills. I think it's perfect for its intended MG audience.I will say, there is a character who is from an alien species called the Abednado, and this character was very literal and socially awkward, and the whole time I was like Uh is this Space Abed Nadir? To be honest I found Space Abed to be a little tiresome, but I think the character would resonate more w [...]
