His Faithful Squire continues the adventures of Taro and Rafe from Knight Errant and it's really wonderful to get to see more of Rafe.

Each book tells the story from the point of view of a different character, each very different.

Rafe spent the first twenty years of his life learning how helpless he was. He's been with Taro for two years, living under the protection of Taro and Taro's formidable sister. He's learned some new skills, but he's pretty sure he's still helpless. However, when he and Taro strike out on their own, problems keep cropping up, and suddenly Taro is the one who needs to be rescued, more than once. It's only after Rafe's found solutions--however unorthodox--that he begins to realize that perhaps he was never as helpless as he'd been taught.

His Faithful Squire is a wonderful book, written from the point of view of the very chatty and personable Rafe. If you're ever been dissatisfied by a "happily ever after" ending, you'll appreciate this look at a relationship that's not exactly new, but is undergoing new stresses. And both parties need to learn how to adapt individually and to work together as a couple. If you've read Knight Errant, the first book in this series, you'll enjoy seeing memories from Rafe's perspective, but if you're new to this universe and this author, His Faithful Squire is an excellent and very welcoming starting point.

His Faithful Squire continues the adventures of Taro and Rafe from Knight Errant and it's really wonderful to get to see more of Rafe. It's also really great to read about a relationship that is already established, clearly strong and very romantic, but have the characters cope with what it means to be an adult in a relationship and how having such a strong relationship influences their goals and their hopes and the people that they will become. Because even when relationships are happy, issues can come up and I really enjoyed reading a book that didn't shy away from those issues.

When you add in the fact that it takes both of them some time to talk to each other--and that they can't always figure out what to say--it's an excellently realistic depiction of a relationship in action...something that there's just never enough of in SF.

The book drew me in, and once I picked it up I had a hard time putting it down. I loved seeing more of Taro and Rafe and I hope there'll be more of them (or the rest of awesome crew of Pendragon's Dream) in the future.

I got my hands on a review copy of this book and I was very excited. I sat down, expecting to read part of it and then to go on with my day. I spent three hours and read the book straight through, it was that much fun. It's so good to get to know Rafe a little better from his first appearance in KNIGHT ERRANT.

Rafe and Taro are stepping out on their own after two years on Taro's sister's ship. The problems they encounter as they try to find their places in the universe (literally) are enough to put a strain on any relationship, and KD shows us the strain the two of them suffer. Add into that a third wheel and, well, you've got a lot of tension between characters.

The action is quick paced and pulls you along. The relationship between Taro and Rafe seems perfectly natural for two such opposite personalities. Their interactions with others reflect their specific personalities. The characters they encounter are all three dimensional and just as interesting as Taro and Rafe.

If you read and liked KNIGHT ERRANT, I highly recommend HIS FAITHFUL SQUIRE. If you haven't read the first book, you might get a little lost so buy that one first and THEN come buy this one.

Like Knight Errant, this was really quite cute, but it wasn't as good (in a purely subjective way). I wasn't a fan of Rafe's first person narrative style. I'm never really a fan of first person narratives to start with, but I'm especially annoyed at them when the narrator makes a habit of addressing the reader. And that's what it is, annoying. Plus, while I adore both Taro and Rafe, Rafe was always the less interesting of the two.

To be fair, one of this book's primary themes was Rafe's attempt to find himself, outside of his dedication to another, and become more interesting. Or rather, Taro's attempt to force Rafe to do so, or even just notice that he needs to be making an effort in that direction. And that makes Taro about the most loveable man in the galaxy. He's wonderful. So is Rafe for that matter, as is their indomitable love for one another. It's all very very sweet. It's just not very exciting.

The book also isn't as focused as the first one. Since Taro and Rafe's love is the primary plot point, the book is essentially them running around encountering a variety of unrelated challenges and overcoming them. There is no overarching plot beyond how much they love each other. By the end it, eventually just degenerated into sketching out events for the reader.

I do have to stress again, as I did for the first book, that for two characters said to be having soooo much sex it's annoying to see none of it. Yes, I understand that would drastically change the genre classification of the series, but both characters are over 18 now and the book is full of references to sex, sexual innuendo, and plain old 'we had lots and lots of sex' type comments, so it feels like a glaring omission to see none of it.
