The author of the best-selling X-wing adventures in the Star Wars series creates a sweeping tale about a secret cadre of pirates who threaten the stability of the New Republic and the life of Luke Skywalker.

Blackwell North Amer
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.
Then Corran's wife, Mirax, vanishes on a covert mission to locate the pirates' secret base, and Corran vows to find her.
Calling on his Corellian undercover experience, he infiltrates the pirate organization. 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 didn't think I would like this book very much before reading it. Even though there are some things I don't like about it, I, Jedi wasn't too bad and I think it was actually kind of interesting.
A good part of this book takes place during the Jedi Academy Trilogy. I thought that it was cool how it did this because it sort of filled in some "gaps," that were missing and explained things that weren't clear. (Especially for Dark Apprentice that was a little bit rushed and messy).
I also thought it was interesting that Michael Stackpole seemed to really try to connect this novel to The Hand Of Thrawn Duology that was published around the same time. Like what it did for the Jedi Academy Trilogy, I think this novel helped explain some ideas that were hard to understand in the duology. The best parts are definitely during this section of the book.
Corran had his ups and downs to me. Sometimes I liked some of things he did, and other times, not so much. He came off as being really proud, a little but whiny, and sometimes annoying. I also think he wasn't that great of husband.... Anyways, I, Jedi is long, but like I said earlier, it is kind of interesting.

SUMMARY FROM WOOKIE AND WIKIPEDIA:
After returning home from a long campaign to find his wife kidnapped, Corran turns to Luke Skywalker for help. This coincides nicely with the master's timing, as Luke is seeking students for his new Jedi Academy on Yavin 4. Corran knows that he is Force-sensitive, and knows that only with the Force as his ally can he track down his enemy.
Corran's wife, Mirax, was tracking down a group of elusive pirates known as the Invids, who are lead by Leonia Tavira. The Invids' primary tactic is to drop out of hyperspace with the flagship, an Imperial Star Destroyer named the Invidious, strike, and disappear with perfect timing. As Mirax grew closer to solving the mystery of how these pirates performed their supernaturally accurate attacks, she was kidnapped and placed into stasis on their fortress planet. On the journey to save Mirax, Corran learns that his grandfather was a Jedi, a member of the Halcyon line. His adopted grandfather shows Corran the records that the Jedi had left behind, and with that, Corran eventually makes up his mind to follow in his ancestor's footsteps and become a Jedi. After extensive training and being caught in a crisis involving the risen spirit of the Dark Sith Lord Exar Kun, Corran leaves the academy, and tries to infiltrate the pirate flying squadron using his CorSec training. He quickly rises through the ranks, and finds out where Mirax is being held. With the timely help of Luke Skywalker and his squadron friend and wingman, Ooryl Qrygg, he fights his way past the Jensaarai, a splinter group of Jedi who focus on stealth and premonition, and into the fortress, and rescues his wife. As they attempt to make good their escape, however, the two Jedi, Qrygg, A'kla and Mirax are met by yet more Jensaarai, led by the Saarai-kaar, who claims that Horn's arrival as "the Halcyon" is a harbinger of their doom. After a short brawl, Skywalker neutralizes the Jensaarai Defenders, while Horn is able to distract the Saarai-Kaar with an illusion of her master, Nikkos Tyris, long enough to prevail against her. All of them are taken into custody just as the Invidious and the Errant Venture, accompanied by Rogue Squadron and Pash Cracken's A-wing group, arrive in the system. Delving deeply into Tavira's mind, Horn plants there a vision of the Venture as the infamous Super Star Destroyer Lusankya as it launches the Sun Crusher at her ship. Spooked by the illusion, Tavira flees the system, leaving the Jedi and the forces of the New Republic to reconcile with the Jensaarai and the Khuiumin Survivors. Shortly afterwards, Corran uses his X-Wing to destroy Exar Kun's temple on Yavin 4--not so much out of petty revenge on the dead Sith Lord, but because he'd realized a connection between the Sith inscriptions on Kun's temple and the Jensaarai Sith texts, and he wanted to do his part to keep Sith knowledge from corrupting more people.
