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.

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.
