If you get embarrassed easily, you'd better not read Knight of a Trillion Stars in a public place because you'll find yourself squealing with laughter. Deana Jones has had one of those days: she's just been fired, sat in something horrible on the train, can't get her car out of commuter gridlock, and has been soaked in a rainstorm. When she finally drips home, the strange alien waiting on her couch seems almost normal. Lorgan ta'al Krue claims he has been sent on a quest to sort out the cause of some mysterious time and space rifts. Because he is convinced that Deana is connected to them, he follows her to a science fiction convention. (The perfect date with an alien!) When Lorgan realizes the problems are originating on another planet, he whisks Deana with him, and she finds that although Lorgan may be her soul mate, he and his otherworldly ways take some getting used to. Don't miss the sequel, Rejar, which features Lorgan's sexy shape-changing brother.

I'm not usually one to get into the hidden anti-feminism stuff because I just like to sit back and enjoy a book, but with this book it was impossible. At every turn the main male character was basically being an abusive jerk, and the female lead just sits there and takes it.

First he (Lorgan) refuses to use Deana's name, calling her Adeeann even when she asks him to call her Deana. Then he supposedly marries Deana after knowing her for 2 days in an alien ceremony that she doesn't understand. When Deana realizes what he's done her biggest concern is that she's not good enough for him, not that he totally disregards her freewill and feelings. After leaving Earth Deana asks him several times to take her home (again, because she doesn't think she's good enough for him) and he tells her he will but doesn't mention that he only intends to take her to HIS home.

Before they have sex for the first time Deana tells him several times that she doesn't want to, even saying that if they did it would be RAPE, but Lorgan totally ignores her and 2 pages later Deana is happily rolling around with him having sex. This is so appalling because it sends the message that a guy can have sex with a women even if she is screaming 'No' and it will turn out ok in the end (not that I think many guys will read this) and it tells girls that its ok for someone to rape you if they are hunky and that saying 'No' doesn't really mean anything. Even later when Deana says no before sex he goes and takes her anyways.

Never once in this book does Lorgan listen to Deana or care about her feelings. He lies to her, deliberately scares her, uses sex whenever Deana disagrees with him, and abuses her in a dozen different ways and she doesn't care. I don't understand why the author of this book went through so much trouble to belittle her main character in so many ways. Its very disturbing, and really turns me off her other books even though I did enjoy two others.

Here's the story, weak-willed, spineless modern heroine meets domineering, chauvanistic alien in a very feeble attempt at a sci-fi/romance blend. Aside from the brief flash of humor that has the heroine bringing an alien to Worldcon, there wasn't anything to recommend this book. He tricks her into marrying him by some ancient tradition of his people, and then holds her to it. And she buys it!
He drags her against her will to his world, and tells her that she can't leave. And she buys it!
He changes her name. And she tolerates it! He dominates her, supresses her, refuses to listen to her point of view, or her opinions, or her desires, or even her choice. And she puts up a token resistance, and then gives in! The whole thing is full of platitiudes that closely resemble the "A woman's place..." attitude, and this supposedly modern woman, Deana, placidly swallows the whole thing, hook, line, and sinker.
God, it was so revolting! I'm sure that if he told her to clean house in high heels and pearls (ala Donna Reed) she would do that too. All in all, this book is a definite no no for anyone who was born after 1930, unless, of course, they missed the femenist movement completely. Perhaps Ms. Joy slept through it?

I read the great reviews for this book, rushed off to get it & wasted several hours reading it when I could have been doing something exciting like sorting gravel or ironing wrinkly gift wrap. What a sludgy mess! Firstly, the names alone are a joke. The author must have just randomly typed a few letters on the screen to name the characters. The time the two main characters spend on earth lasts almost two whole days, there is very little development of the man's adjustment to earth culture (funniest bit is when he attacks a microwave thinking it's trying to hurt the woman). The woman is pathetic--tries to be Ms. Independence but always caves as soon as Mr. Macho starts nibbling on various parts of her anatomy. The guy is basically like a slave-owner, granting her minimal rights, completely disregarding her wishes, and even "granting" her permission to make love to him instead of him calling all the shots & making love to her (she is like a doormat just lying there as he does what he wants, when he wants, and how he wants and totally ignores anything she says). After tricking her into marrying him (and neglecting to tell her that she just agreed to a life-bond with him)they leave earth & head off into the universe. There are some minor characters like his brother Rejar who is so oversexed he can barely go five minutes without jumping into some chick's pants and the lovable wizard who supposedly has all these powers and is a mighty leader of their Knights of Chal, but spends most of his time chuckling and making soup. Of course, women can't be a Knight of Chal--they're too busy cooking their men's suppers & shopping (and they have their own mystic magic, whatever that is). What really put the twist in my knickers is when they reveal this custom on Mr.Read more ›

Dara Joy is a master at creating fantasy worlds that are every woman's dream. No disease, self-cleaning houses, magic powers and lots of sexy men - these are just a few of the wonders you will find in "Knight of a Trillion Stars." The heroine is a very ordinary human who is shocked one day to find this incredible man in her home. He tells her he's from another world, but she thinks he's a flake. Turns out he was telling the truth, and the two go on a very exciting and surprising quest.
This book is a lot of fun, and all but the most rigid sci fi fans will enjoy Dara Joy's wonderful imagination. The plot is pretty good and the secondary characters are almost as much fun as the principals. My only complaint would be that Deana is one of those annoying heroines who spends way too much time insisting that she's not good enough for the hero. It's a minor complaint, however, and won't keep you from having a great time reading this book.
