This synopsis report prepared by Wedge Antilles
After X-Wing pilot Corran Horn's wife is kidnapped, he decides to join Luke Skywalker and develope his skills to become a Jedi and find his wife. After his training, he infiltrates the kidnapper's group to set things right and rescue his wife.
All in all a very great story that is set highly around conflicting emotions about how Corran can find his wife without breaching his ethics, his vows, and without turning into a person that he doesn't want to be. Possibly the best and deepest Star Wars book around, and the first to be written exclusively in first person perspective. Remarkably weaved seamlessly with Kevin J. Anderson's Jedi Academy Trilogy even though Michael A. Stackpole had nothing to do with the writing of those books. Not one to miss.
