    "Does Leia justice"

    A very nice depiction of Princess Leia, portraying her as a complex and principled--but also compromised--leader. The scheme at the center of the story felt a bit half baked to me, a bit implausible. Aside from that I had a good time with this one, and I enjoyed this narrator.

    "Fun, well told Princess Leia adventure."

    Everything you'd want in a Star Wars book. Completely captures Leia's voice. And mixes adventure and humor perfectly.

    Story
    "Listening to Star Wars With My Daughter"

    After seeing The Force Awakens, my 10 year-old daughter was primed for more adventures in that galaxy far, far away. Since there aren't yet any books featuring Rey, I thought this story might fit the bill. We both had a blast listening to it -- there's adventure, a wonderfully claustrophobic scene with little monsters, blasters, banter, and the most terrifying Imperial Interrogation Droid I've encountered. Also it was cool to see Nien Nunb featured, even if he didn't laugh as much.

    Moving Target uses a memoir-esque framing device with Leia just prior The Force Awakens reflecting on an adventure she had between Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi. It centers on love, loyalty, and why Princess Leia fights.

    Authors Castelluci and Fry did a wonderful job putting Leia front and center, and giving us a fun little romp with heart. And January LaVoy did an excellent job not only with our favorite princess, but also the supporting cast of characters.

    My daughter and I had a lot of fun catching up with each other and comparing where we were in the adventure, and I think there's a good chance she'll come back to listen to it again. It's a good time to be a Star Wars fan.

    "Quote teasy"

    I was skeptical about listening to this, not sure if it would make me worried about the future of the Star Wars canon or not, but after finishing I am glad to say it was worth it. Little nods at events to come make the experience memorable, and I am now all the more excited for Force Awakens

    Story
    "Nicely Done"
    What did you love best about Star Wars: Moving Target?

    January's reading of the work. And the band of characters that accompanied Leia.


    What other book might you compare Star Wars: Moving Target to and why?

    It's like the other two YA Journey to the Force Awakens novels. This is a good thing as those were both fun. Haven't read or heard the new one, Before the Awakening yet.


    What does January LaVoy bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    There were moments, were she put the perfect amount of emotion in her voice that, honestly, I still carry those scenes in my head. Amazing.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, only because it was great to wander around with the story and these funny little characters along with Leia, who I've known since I was a kid.


    Any additional comments?

    I'm glad these YA novels are out there. Too many SciFi books turn young readers off by their length and pacing. These move forward without much digression. Thank you.

    "Good book"

    It had its good moments and some boring ones... I read this to see if there were any hints about the upcoming movie.. And I'll just say it wasn't what I expected but I am a little more excited to see the movie now

    January lavoy is always good to hear. The story was fun. Even though it was for young adults us die hards will enjoy it.

    The reboot of the canon has had a rocky start in my opinion but this story begins to smooth that out.

    "Very short, but good story"

    What I don't like about some of the new canon Star Wars books is that they can change the way you see the movies. This doesn't do that it just fills in the blanks
