Rated 5 out of 5 by from not just a good star wars book, a good book period one of the first star wars books i read. and only after i read the xwing series did i bother to pick it up, call me crazy but i was tired of seeing only luke skywalker in any movies or on the covers of books and shuddering as i thought of his horrible acting corran was in the xwing series by far my favourite character, i was wary of reading i, jedi at first because i didnt want him to become yet another luke skywalker, too much piousness and trying to save the galaxy would have ruined corrans character needless to say i was pleasantly surprised to find that he stayed true to his roots and kept thinking like a cop, with some typical moments of corran misadventure one of the great things about corran is he was never made out to be anything more than a normal guy, and even the character feels himself to be a normal guy, its one thing that will make this book enjoyable by anyone, even non star wars fans

Rated 5 out of 5 by from best book of all time this book is written about one of the best characters in the Star wars Universe (in my opinion), Coran Horn. it tell how he goes from starfighters to jedi. it also gives a different perspective on the different force powers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing I have been reading all of the EU Star Wars books and so far this has to be my favourite. The book follows the life of RS pilot Corran Horn and his choice to become a Jedi. I would recommend reading the Jedi Academy series before you read this one, as the book takes place during Kevin Anderson's series but focuses more on Corrans life than the other new Jedi. If you are a star wars fan as much as I am you don't want to pass this book up. 5 Stars

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Star Wars: I Jedi This book is superb. Rather than detracting from Kevin J. Anderson's "Jedi Academy Trilogy," this book improves it, further tying together the various storylines. The first-person point of view is a great touch, letting the reader know exactly what it feels like to battle evil, as if they were really there themselves. A must-read for anyone who read the "Jedi Academy Trilogy," this book is the very definition of "Icing on the cake."

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Imaginative .... yet not "I Jedi" is written from the point of view of one of Luke's students and former member of Rogue Squadron, Coran Horn. It deals with, among other things his difficulties with Luke's methods of teaching. The book has taken the plotline from Kevin Andersen's "Jedi Academy" series and made Horn the hero of some very key battles and situations. I thought the book was only "ok" - since Stackpole did have some unique insight into Luke Skywalker's character, and yet he stole (borrowed, with permission?) a large part of his storyline from a better author. I am well aware that the Star Wars series of books all build upon each other, but this book took that to an ridiculous extent when Stackpole tried to improve on a great series by making his own character the hero of the day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well done... I read the 'Jedi Academy' a while back and I found it to have been one of my FAVORIT series ever. Now thanks to this book(and of coarse Michael A Stackpole), I got to enjoy it again. This is a great book. It adds another huge section which you don't even think about, but it fits great! If you haven’t read this book yet then buy it, get it at the library, borrow it from a friend, steal it if you have to... well, don't steal it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I,Impressed I had a hard time putting it down. After reading the Jedi Academy many years ago this brought back memories of the the series and gave it new light. Excellent writing from a new prespective, taking a new look at the people we have come to enjoy over the years since Star Wars began.

Read from the Book

None of us liked waiting in ambush, primarily because we couldn''t be wholly certain we weren''t the ones being set up for a hot-vape. The Invids--the pirate crews working with the ex-Imperial Star Destroyer Invidious-- had so far eluded the best efforts of the New Republic to engage them. They seemed to know where we would be, when we would get there, and in what force, then planned their raids appropriately. As a result we spent a lot of time doing battle-damage assessments on their efforts, and they really pushed to give us plenty of BDA work. Rogue Squadron had gone to ground to wait on several of the larger asteroids in the K''vath system. This location put us in close proximity to K''vath 5''s primary moon, Alakatha. We powered down our engines and had our sensors in passive mode only to avoid detection by the folks we wanted to trap. According to our mission briefing, New Republic Intelligence had gotten a tip they considered reliable that at least part of Leonia Tavira''s pirate fleet would be hitting a luxury liner coming out of the resort coast on Alakatha''s northern continent. Mirax and I had actually honeymooned there three years ago, before Thrawn turned the New Republic inside-out, so I had fond memories of the place and could well remember the wealth dripping in jewels and precious metals from the throats and hands of the New Republic''s elite. I glanced at my X-wing''s chronometer. "The Glitterstar is still on schedule?" Whistler, nestled behind my
