From New York Times bestselling author Michael A. Stackpole, one of the acclaimed masters of imaginative fiction, comes a stirring new tale set in the Star Wars universe, the story of Corran Horn, a heroic X-wing pilot who faces the greatest challenge of his life: trying to come to terms with his Jedi heritage and learning to use the Force--without
succumbing to the dark side.


Corran Horn was an officer in the Corellian Security Force before casting his lot with the New Republic. As the grandson of a legendary Jedi hero, he has latent Force powers that have yet to be developed. But he has managed to distinguish himself with Rogue Squadron, the X-wing fighter force that has become the scourge of the Empire and of the pirates that prey on Republic shipping.

When a new pirate band begins terrorizing the space lanes, Rogue Squadron seems at last to have met its match. Led by an ex-Moff in an Imperial-class Star Destroyer, the pirates appear uncannily aware of the squadron's plans and tactics, and are able to detect and escape even the cleverest ambushes. Either there is a security leak...or the pirates have access to a dark and unnatural power that only a trained Jedi could contend with.

Then Corran's wife, Mirax, vanishes on a covert mission to locate the pirates' secret base, and Corran vows to find her. He begins Jedi training at the Jedi academy, hoping to develop his untapped powers. But as he grows
dissatisfied with Luke Skywalker's methods, he will break with the academy before his training is finished.

Calling on his Corellian undercover experience, he infiltrates the pirate organization. His plan is daring and dangerous. He will learn what he can, sabotage what he can, and use every means possible to find his wife. And his very survival may depend on a terrible choice--whether or not to surrender to the dark side.

I, Jedi brings readers into the startling, dramatic journey of a young man with a wild talent who must somehow master those powers within...or be destroyed by them.

Listener Opinions

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Merida | 1/20/2014

    " Yeah, we get it, Corran Horn is kickass. But this is blatant sue-ing of an already sue character. Also, the retconning of the Jedi Academy Trilogy is distasteful and very badly done. But it does some neat things, so I wouldn't skip it. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lisa | 1/19/2014

    " I really hate giving books such low ratings, but this book felt like the author wanted to show his displeasure with the way events in a previous book had been handled and insert his perfect original character who was somehow smarter and wiser than Luke Skywalker and everyone else in the book. Not to mention that it sucked rehashing stuff that had happened in that previous book from this guy's point of view, instead of building up any suspense about the storyline I actually cared about. Not a fan of this one. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marc Mitchell | 1/12/2014

    " Written in 1st person. Interesting to see the events unfold thru the eyes of the character. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Craig | 1/11/2014

    " I didn't care enough for the man character which makes it hard to enjoy the book when it's through his eyes. Of course, I haven't read the X-Wing series (yet) so I may appreciate more from an outside perspective. I did enjoy the book but it could have been better. Definitely enjoyed his struggles with the Dark Side when it came in from an angle he did not expect and also in that dealing with who he is as a person and his character. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 C.t. Hannon | 1/5/2014

    " one of my favorite books "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Hunter Beck | 10/9/2013

    " Great book. We get to see the continuing story of one of more beloved characters from the X-wing series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Louise Smith | 9/11/2013

    " I love the first person nature of this book, a truly fantastic addition to the Expanded Universe! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alex Castellanos | 6/21/2013

    " I loved the see the events of The Jedi Academy Series taking place from Corran's point of view, and I also loved that it didn't really have much to do with the book at all. Its like, Jedi? ok cool...now let's move on! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brian | 3/31/2013

    " Perhaps my absolute favorite Star Wars book of all time. It is very unique in focusing just on one character instead of many. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chris | 3/25/2013

    " Good review of jedi philosophy "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ross | 3/6/2013

    " Very good book, although it has a different feel than most books of the Star Wars franchise. At times it feels like Stackpole is cheating a bit in order to further the story. I almost wish a few aspects of the book were left out. Over all a good read though. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 logdog | 5/5/2012

    " SOOOOOOOOOOO embarrassed to admit that yes, I read EU as a boy. (If you know what "EU" means....you're in the same boat.) But I do remember liking this book. Like, a lot. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Andrew | 3/15/2012

    " I don't really like Stackpole's X-wing series, however Corran Horn is an awesome character and this book was fun. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Richard | 2/22/2012

    " Great read, but to gain full appreciation, you first need to read the x-wing series by the same author. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Zachary | 10/12/2011

    " Probably the best Star Wars book I've read. Stackpole does an excellent job of exploring how a Jedi might perceive and manipulate the force. Just incredible. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Melkirdin | 10/7/2011

    " this book is very well written. the plot is sound, but sometimes the content leaves something to be desired. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Noel | 9/27/2011

    " when i started this one, i remember not liking it as a kid, but this time it was GREAT!! written in first person by one of the fringe characters in the written Star Wars world, the book has a character of it's own!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Monique | 7/21/2011

    " This was a NEW book. I didn't expect a 1st person, and I'll say, I liked it. This was the usual overall storyline in these books, but I liked it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cole Schoolland | 7/8/2011

    " Yes, I'm a nerd, lets move past that. This is, hands down, not only the best Star Wars novel I've ever read but one of the best books as well. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 LazerWraith | 7/4/2011

    " A great book. The main character was fairly powerful, and his was the only point-of-view. That is what I like. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jeremiah | 6/1/2011

    " One of my favorite Star Wars novels! Corran Horn is one of my favorite EU characters, and I like how we get to know a lot more about him and his past in this book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Paul | 3/24/2011

    " This one was interesting for sure, but it did not make my socks go up and down. Being told from first person and going through Jedi training was a unique combo, and for that reason I recommend the book. I felt the plot could have had more color. Did it end a little abruptly? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alex | 2/12/2011

    " Pretty good book, went into a lot of detail about the force. It talked about a lot of things that referenced other books. If you have only seen the movies, I don't recommend this book. Only for true star wars fans! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kayla | 10/8/2010

    " This book was pretty decent. I liked how it was nice and short (292 pages), so I finished it quickly. The only thing I didn't like was that my favorite character, Han Solo, was absent during most of the book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Xebix | 9/5/2010

    " This series has been OK so far, but nothing really spectacular. I'm hoping it picks up soon, or I may skip it and move on to the next era of Star Wars books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ron | 8/8/2010

    " Better than Stackpole's usual, though the hokey ending sort of ruins the whole thing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Vee | 3/16/2010

    " This is an exciting action-packed story. Insights into how the Jedi relate to the force makes this book even more compelling. Yuuzhan Vong! They're a great adversary for the New Jedi Order. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kersten | 11/15/2009

    " A good escape book, and worth the $.25 garage-sale price tag. The book features the most popular characters from New Hope, Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi and delves into the lives of their children. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jeroen | 6/14/2009

    " Good second in the series, slightly less thrilling than the first... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Matt | 3/6/2009

    " The New Jedi Order is my favorite series in the Star Wars Expanded Universe. It is a long and epic story, with large ramifications for all the Expanded Universe characters. It will keep you busy for a while! "
