Book Description

*This was written to be a lengthy novella. (Much longer than a story- but not as long as a novel.)


What happens when Deana decides to introduce the concept of Valentine's Day to Aviara?

Yep, that is pretty insane. What are you thinking, Deanna?!

How will the fearsome Charl knights react to the concept of a day of romance?

Sexy time for wizards. With sparks.

Welcome, traveler!

Time to rejoin old friends and come back to where it all started: Aviara. It's home- and the door is open for a sweet and spicy visit.

Have a party visiting with Lorgin and Deana, their family, friends, and Familiars. Find out what is going on in the MOD universe in this hilarious, heart-warming story (with plenty of steam, of course) that advances the Matrix of Destiny storyline.


Meanwhile back on Aviara

It seems Lorgin is experiencing fluctuations in his Charl powers that Yaniff believes may be an indication that he will experience an increase in his abilities. The tenth level mystic-in-training, Rejar continues to exasperate his Charl Master, Yaniff; who in turn continues to subtly manipulate the brooding Traed into the Charl way of life.

As the Earth holiday of Valentine's Day approaches, Deana is bored with her contented life and looking for a way to stir things up; just for fun. And what better way than to bring her own version of this romantic holiday to the Charl Knights and Familiars of Aviara? Well, Deana may have bitten off more than she bargained for when Lorgin decides to beat her at her own game.

I'm happy to see that our favorite Charls and Familiars haven't lost any of their sexy charm or endearing arrogance. This novella was like catching up with old friends, I had a smile on my face the entire time I was reading. Deana is still her mischievous self and all of the characters that fans have come to know and love make an appearance. This satisfying short will sooth the nerves of even the most addicted Matrix of Destiny reader, and provide just enough fun to hold us over until Ms. Joy gives her loyal readers what they have been dying for, a new release. Welcome back Dara, we have missed your unique voice, and of course your sexy alphas!

"The only way to describe the reading of my e-book "Death by Ploot Ploot" is to say the I consumed it. Then I read it again. I laughed so hard. This is what I have been missing in books I currently read. You get an entirely different feeling reading Dara's works. No one else stimulates like Dara - literally in every sense. Oh, how I miss her writings! I read and read again all her books. Did I say how much I have missed her writings? Please tell me that Traed has an adventure coming!" - Joy

2.0 out of 5 stars too much humor, not enough substance March 20, 2012
By L. Henn
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Okay, so Ms Joy thinks she's funny and decided to poke fun at her characters through this book. Yes, it was humorous to see how an Earth woman's customs can get so turned around by the Avarians. But I can't help but wonder what the point is? Why is Ms Joy writing such short stories? Why hasn't she created a follow up novel on par with the 1st 3 in this series? After waiting years to return to this remarkable universe, Ms Joy is rapidly losing me as a fan of her work. She has not expanded one iota on what the first 3 books led up to. Anyone looking for resolution is in for disappointment.

3.0 out of 5 stars Too SHORT! December 28, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Finished in less an hour! Not happy that I got only a short story! They should mention in the description that it is only like 50 pages long. Unfortunanely this is the only way to get Dara Joy books any more! I really wish they were real (300 page) novels like the older ones. Was disappointed that the joke was really the majority of the plot. I had much the same issue with Familiar Touch. Not fleshed out, as it were.

3.0 out of 5 stars Amusing but short February 18, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is not a full book but more like a novella or quick peek to see how the characters are doing in between books. You get to see everybody and how they're doing. There's a few funny scenes and I enjoyed reading them. It was a quick read, under an hour? (longer for me since I was reading while at work heehee). If you have the extra time and money it wouldn't be a complete waste, but it's not necessary to know what's going in regards to the overall plot. I missed the characters and that was the only reason why I got it. 99 cents would be a better price =P

5.0 out of 5 stars Death By Ploot Ploot October 29, 2010
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book is by far the funniest SH*! I have ever read. If you liked the characters of The matrix series you are going to flat out love them now. It is a very good filler to the series.

4.0 out of 5 stars Laugh-a-minute Dara Joy June 10, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This Matrix of Destiny book includes the favorite characters of the series. But, as usual with a Dara Joy book, the humor is laugh-out-loud funny. And it's all based on a joke that goes out of control. So while we wait for the next Matrix book (the one that resolves all of the hanging issues from the other books) enjoy this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great visit but too short May 23, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Like many others it was fun to catch up with the family could have been a little more to it. Really need Traeds story and Rejars training and Lorgins levels of power.
