Our SYNOPSIS

No Spoilers

Set between The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi, Moving Target is an excellent Leia novel setting up for the Battle of Endor. Han Solo is frozen in Carbonite, but that won’t stop Leia from leading the Rebellion against the Empire. She leads a ragtag group of Rebels in a mission to distract the Empire while the larger Rebel fleet prepares to act on the intelligence they’ve received about the Death Star being built at Endor. Moving Target is the only one of the Journey to the Force Awakens middle-grade novels set between Episodes V and VI, and features a compelling frame story with General Leia set just prior to The Force Awakens.

MOVING TARGET was released as part of the Journey to The Force Awakens series and features Leia telling a story from her past. At the time of writing this review, it's pretty much the only canon content we have that is set between THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK and RETURN OF THE JEDI. It doesn't reveal things like the exact plan for rescuing Han, but it does mention it. It's a very quick read and not too complex because it's written for younger audiences, but that doesn't mean the writing quality or story aren't good. It's a well-written story and perfect to read in a few hours on a rainy day or a quiet evening. It mostly features characters we don't know, but does introduce new locations and is still worth the read!
