“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

“Smuggler’s Run: A Han Solo & Chewbacca Adventure” By Greg Rucka Review

It is a period of civil war. The heroic freedom fighters of the REBEL ALLIANCE have won their most important victory thus far with the destruction of the Empire’s ultimate weapon, the DEATH STAR. But the Rebellion has no time to savor its victory. The evil Galactic Empire has recognized the threat the rebels pose, and is now searching the galaxy for any and all information that will lead to the final destruction of the freedom fighters. For the MILLENNIUM FALCON’s crew, who saved the life of Luke Skywalker during the Battle of Yavin, their involvement with the rebels is at an end. Now HAN SOLO and CHEWBACCA hope to take their reward and settle some old debts.

This book is a very entertaining, interesting and fun read. However it isn’t a super advanced read and you don’t need brain power to read and enjoy this book. This book is an also a good read to fill more of the Star Wars timeline.

I would say that this good is a middle school level book because it doesn’t have brutal content in it and it is very easy to understand. While reading this book you can truly turn off your brain for a while but still have good time. 

The plot here was very entertaining. It was very easy and very interesting. It engaged you from the first chapter and it really makes it easy to love more Han Solo and Chewbacca and the relationship which they two have with each other. The plot is very basic but you still will have a good time reading it and at the same time you will be able to shut down your brain and just get into the world of Star Wars.

This book gives us expansion of Han Solo and Chewbacca as characters but also this book gives us expansion of the universe of Star Wars in a way. It had taken us to places which I don’t remember seeing or reading about before but also it introduces new characters to the universe which never gets boring when it comes to Star Wars.

The characters in this book was so incredible. Of course the two main characters in this book Han Solo and Chewbacca are as awesome as always but we also get many otters good characters in this universe which I personally I’m super thankful because it never gets boring discovering new characters in the Star Wars franchise. 

The written style was vert basic and easy but that in a way made this whole book for me so enjoyable because the plot was also very basic and easy. In this way the writing style and the plot made an incredible match in this book.

This book gives us good space fights which I am a big fan of in Star Wars. And this book really shows that Han Solo and Chewbacca are the best fucking pilots to every exist. And Millennium Falcon is the best fucking spaceship in existents which means a lot because there are dozens and dozens of bad ass spaceships in Star Wars.

This book will keep you on edge from start to the end of this book, which all books should be like. I really couldn’t put this book down and I just needed to finish it. 

I give this book 5 / 5

“The Weapon of a Jedi: A Luke Skywalker Adventure” By Jason Fry Review

The REBEL ALLIANCE has destroyed the Empire’s dreaded DEATH STAR, but the galaxy remains convulsed by civil war, and the Imperial starfleet is hunting the rebels throughout the galaxy. LUKE SKYWALKER, the pilot who destroyed the Death Star, is now hailed as a hero. But Luke seeks only to support the freedom fighters, serving the Rebellion behind the controls of his X-wing fighter.Even as he flies alongside the pilots of Red Squadron, Luke feels stirrings in the mystical energy field known as the Force. And this farm boy turned fighter pilot begins to suspect his destiny lies along a different path.

I was super excited to read this book and I had high expectations for this book as for any other Star Wars book and movie and show because it the fucking Star Wars we are talking about. 

This book is a fun little book to read and the cover of this book will make a killing on your bookshelf because it so stunning. But the book itself when you look behind the cover it is just an okay space opera adventure of Luke Skywalker. Of course this book shows a little bit better what relations did Luke, C3-PO and R2-D2 had with each other which really was the best thing about this book for me at least.

This book doesn’t add anything new to the universe of Star Wars nor to the characters here. But he get a nice little adventure which Luke, C3-PO and R2-D2 had after the events in episode 4 but before episode 5. It was very fun to learn about this adventure and it was a decent book but it didn’t engage me so good as some other Star Wars books.

The plot here was good but it was very short so as you might expect we didn’t get a lot of details or a super detailed adventure but for me this book worked fine. This book is from C3-PO and R2-D2 perceptive so it is them telling this story but the reactions which these two have with each other is like the best thing ever. 

The plot of this book is mainly Luke learning on how to use The Force and how to fight with a lightsaber. And of course we get some very good descriptions on what to keep in mind when you are learning to use both the The Force and a lightsaber which really for me was the highlight of this book.

The writing style wasn’t super advanced here, to be honest it was super basic but I didn’t mind it because a book doesn’t need to have an academic writing style in it to still be good and enjoyable. 

In this book we get very really little characters and half off these characters doesn’t get more than a page or two involving them. But Sarco was very interesting character in this book which really could have been explored more in this universe.

I give this book 3 / 5

“Dark Tide I: Onslaught” By Michael A. Stackpole Review

Twenty-one years after the destruction of Darth Vader and the Emperor, the Star Wars galaxy has been hit by a threat more deadly than anything that has gone before. In VECTOR PRIME, aliens invaded from outside the galaxy and were routed at great cost to our heroes. Now, in a climate of mistrust – especially of the Jedi – Leia cannot convince the New Republic that the threat may not be over, even as the next wave of alien warships are entering the galaxy.

So this was my first star wars book I’ve ever read. Of course I’ve read some star wars comics here and there but not actually a book. And since im a huge star wars fan who have seen every movie at least 10 times and played most of the star wars games I’ve head expectations for this book. 

At first this book was very good but as the ending was closer and closer it was going farther and farther down the hill. And when the last 5 chapters were around the corner I was questioning if there is a point of reading it to the end.

The writing style was okay, but it was far from the best I’ve seen or read. But still it could have been better. I don’t know if the author is to blame here or the whole editorial team behind the “New Jedi Order” book series.

When it comes to the plot, then at the beginning it was good but after like 150 pages is just ran down the hill which is so fucking sad because it is Star Wars we are talking about right now.

There are couple of things which I didn’t like, of course I won’t give you any spoilers because spoilers aren’t cool. But that thing which made me the most angry was that Han Solo, was only in this book for half page. And later he was just once mentioned which is sad. Because I wanted to see more of Han Solo and not just Leia and Luke.

The ending was a torture to read, it was so boring and so badly done. Both the plot at the end and the writing style at the end were the worst thing you have ever seen in the star wars franchise. Even when you compare it with the new star wars trilogy. 

This book was the biggest disappointing since watching how bad of a character Kylo Ren was in the movie trilogy. 

I give this book 2 / 5
