Our Synopsis

No Spoilers

I, Jedi is the only novel written in a first-person point-of-view in the Legends universe, written from the perspective of Corellian security officer-turned-X-Wing-pilot-turned-Jedi-trainee Corran Horn. The novel divides into two main sections: Corran’s time training on Yavin IV at Luke’s Jedi Academy, and Corran’s pursuit of the pirates who have kidnapped his wife. In some ways, it retcons Kevin J. Anderson’s Jedi Academy Trilogy into including Corran, Mara Jade, and Kam Solusar, not shying away from being critical of Luke’s leadership. With help from Mara, Corran takes on the sprit of the ancient Sith Lord, Exar Kun. With some new Jedi skills under his belt, Corran goes full Dark Knight with his stealth mission to infiltrate the Invid pirates!

Publisher's Summary

Possible Spoilers

New York Times best-selling author Michael A. Stackpole presents a stirring new tale set in the Star Wars universe: the dramatic story of a heroic X-wing pilot on the razor's edge between the Force and the dark side.

Corran Horn has distinguished himself as one of the best and brightest of Rogue Squadron's elite fighting force. Then his wife, Mirax, vanishes on a covert mission for the New Republic, and Corran vows to find her. To do so, he knows he must develop the latent Force powers inherited from his grandfather, a legendary Jedi hero. He joins Luke Skywalker's famed Jedi academy to begin training, only to quit in frustration at Skywalker's methods. Now Corran is on his own. Using his Corellian undercover experience, he must infiltrate, sabotage, and destroy a ruthless organization in order to find his wife. But to succeed, Corran will have to come to terms with his Jedi heritage and make a terrible choice: surrender to the dark side...or die.

Perhaps one of the more... "controversial" books of the Legends EU. Michael Stackpole manages to weave together his X-Wing series with the events in Kevin J Anderson's Jedi Academy trilogy, shown through the eyes of pilot-turned-Jedi Corran Horn. While its far from perfect, I enjoyed this book for was it was. A fun adventure told from a first-person perspective featuring some of the more important characters and stories from Legends lore.

- Andrew Bell

I, Jedi is a very unique book in the Legends universe, being the only full-length adult novel told entirely from a first-person point of view. It's fun in the sense that it is a continuation of Corran Horan's story from the Rogue Squadron books and is also a retelling/retcon of the Jedi Academy Trilogy. The book sees Corran go from X-Wing pilot to Jedi student to a lightsaber-wielding vigilante detective by night in the vein of Batman! All of this is in an effort to locate and rescue his wife, Mirax, who has been captured by pirates. The book is absolutely bonkers but is certainly has plenty of twists and turns to keep things interesting. It's an essential Legends read as it serves as the connection in Corran's story between the first four X-Wing books and the New Jedi Order.

I’ll admit I’ve never been a massive fan of this book, and it certainly isn’t Stackpole’s best SW work. Although the author worked closely with Kevin J. Anderson (author of The Jedi Academy Trilogy that the events of this book interweave through), it still feels to me like a case of shoehorning and authors favorite OC into a scenario he was never originally a part of.
