This romance could have happened anywhere, it isn't very spacey science fiction. there wasn't a lot of intrusive futuristic tech, or many stock aliens. I did wonder if homophobia would still be a problem so far I the future. I assume interstellar space travel and colonization of other planets is faaaaar in the future. So the homophobia didn't make sense at first. But who knows what the future will bring? Also, just setting a story on a spaceship doesn't make it science fiction. So this could have well been a fantasy novel or even a contemporary with only minor changes,,
I enjoyed the dialog, and the smarmy villains (usually rich people, ha). This was a fun read, and I would like to see more.
I found the character development to be excellent, so much so that you get completely drawn into the characters and immersed into the stories. The writing took me through many emotions, from laughing to crying. Each book tells the story from the point of view of a different character, each very different. All of the books have adventure, some have romance, and heroism from a realistic human viewpoint. The books are also well edited.
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. Read morePublished 19 months ago by Sadie Forsythe
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. Read morePublished on August 21, 2011 by Bea
