“Moving Target: A Princess Leia Adventure” By Cecil Castellucci Review

Reeling from their disastrous defeat on Hoth, the heroic freedom fighters of the REBEL ALLIANCE have scattered throughout space, pursued by the agents of the sinister GALACTIC EMPIRE. One rebel task force protects PRINCESS LEIA, bearing her in secrecy from star to star. As the last survivor of Alderaan’s House of Organa, Leia is a symbol of freedom, hunted by the Empire she has opposed for so long.

Another amazing book from the Star Wars Universe. I always loved Star Wars and Leia and at this point Leia is the OG of all time. 

This book takes place between The Empire Strikes Back and Return Of The Jedi. And it is about one of many adventure which Leia had. This book needs to get points for making Leia even deeper and better character than what she already was. I always loved Leia as a character and after reading this book I just love her more.

This book is very good because it gives Leia more emotional depth while introducing compelling new characters to the universe which I love.

Of course this book is an YA book so there are some parts of this book which might not fit well with the adults readers but still this book brings more to Leia and makes her even more likeable.

The plot of this book is so fucking good because it involves making difficult decisions on Leia’s part but also it has real consequences to the rebellion and to Leia’s mission.  

The characters in this book are so well done, of course we talked already about Leia but I need to complement the other characters in this book because they were almost as good as Leia. Of course we have known Leia as a character since the first star wars movie back in 1977 while the majority of characters in this book are brand new which means that we don’t know as much about them as the original characters as Leia and Luke. But still they deserve the spotlight time because they were amazing. 

My main problem with this book is that I wish that there were more stormtroopers in it, don’t get it wrong this book has some good stormtroopers moments in it. But I still wished to see more of them in this book even thou it is a book about Leia. 

I Give This Book 4 / 5
