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

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.
