Things go from bad to worse for Taro as he tries to work out how to deal with Rafe and all the complications he brings, and watching him deal with slime, fools, killer furry things, and himself is great fun. Plenty of reasons to read 'just one more chapter' and I hope you didn't have anything planned for the evening.

I received this book from Librarything Member giveaways. Despite many attempts I could not finish it. I just could not get into either the story or the characters. I am unsure what it was about it - I enjoy science fiction/fantasy and have no problems with gay romance.

This was an excellent book. One of the best books I have ever read. Once I sat down and started reading it, it was very hard to pull away from it. I found it very entrancing and the story kept me on my feet. This is definitely a book I would recommend you read. On a scale of 1-5 i give this book a 10. If you read my reviews please go buy this book it is totally worth the money and the time it takes to read it. Really looking forward to reading the next book. :)

Knight Errant is a love story that follows the adventures of Kintaro Hibiki. Kintaro (Taro) wants to meet the expectations of his adopted sister and go to college. Taro doesn't want the life his sister has mapped out for him. He prefers living life on the edge. While trying to figure out how to stomach the boredom of college Taro meets Rafe, a male pleasure giver. Taro tries to ignore his attraction to Rafe. After being kidnapped by the husband of one Rafe's clients, they find themselves stuck on a deserted planet. While trying to survive together planet, Taro gives up trying to fight his attraction and gives in.Throughout the rest of the book Taro and Rafe end up in some interesting situations. Though there seems to be a lot of scrapes and dangerous situations each situation builds the bond between the two lovers. The story is so well written that I easily forgot that the book followed a gay couple. The gender of the Taro and Rafe took a sideline to the budding romance between the too characters. Knight Errant was easily one of the best books I've read in a while. It's a must read for any looking for a true romance novel.

A cute very anime-esque story. Why do I relate this story to anime? The combat training the crew routinely does, the space-opera theme, and heck the captain's blue hair all give me that sort of macross/evangelion/etc vibe. Not that this is a bad thing at all, I really enjoyed reading the story!The story is well developed though I found myself wanting to smack Taro around for being such a dope at times, though the story wouldn't be what it is without that character flaw. There were times when I had difficulty discerning how all of the characters were related to one another. I did eventually figure it out but things were a bit unclear as to how Eve and Taro were connected and where all of the other characters fit into the "family" that lived aboard the ship.I hope that in the sequels we find out more about Taro's pre-Eve days when he lived with Murgoty, I think a lot of the explanations for Taro's character flaws lie in his back-story and I would be interested to hear more about his younger days.

Knight Errant is a sweet, though action-packed, coming-of-age/gay/space opera/romance, in which the gay part is much less important that the coming-of-age part. The love scenes are not at all explicit for anyone who would be uncomfortable with that but quite apologetically same gender, which I consider a plus. While I am not a huge romance fan, this is well-written with plenty of space opera adventure to keep you entertained.My one complaint was that the novel gets off to a slow start. I found myself not caring that Kintaro Hibiki (mostly called by his nickname of Taro) was kicked out of a low-life gambling club, and the author seemed to go on a bit about how Taro's adopted "sister" and savior, Eve Marcori, always saved small children and got kicked out of the space marines for doing so. However, once you get past the first couple of chapters the action starts rolling and, even more importantly, you get drawn into the characters for whom you start cheering.Taro is devoted to Eve who now owns and captains a space freighter. He has no desire to go to college or follow in Eve's footsteps as a space captain. However, he won't disappoint her by telling her that or by telling her that he is gay. He represses almost all of his own personality to try to fit into her vision of what his dead mother would have wanted him to be. The problem is that it isn't whom he is.Then they rescue another young man, Rafe, who was a former pleasure-slave. Eve had freed him from slavery but being a courtesan has seemed to him to be the only way to make his way in life. He really isn't good at much of anything else--or so it seems. Besides that, Rafe likes pleasing and giving pleasure to other people if it can be someone he likes or cares about. He hasn't minded his way of life as long as he could choose who he was with. The budding relationship between Taro and Rafe, with its misunderstandings, some of them deliberately fostered by Rafe, and its snarky dialogue is quite well done.Taro decides to find a way to get rid of Rafe largely, though he doesn't admit it to himself, because he is strongly attracted to him. Unfortunately, Taro has a way of finding himself in deep trouble, and his attempt to rid them of Rafe lands the two of them kidnapped and stranded on a poisonous planet. There Taro begins, with Rafe's help, to see that he can and must stand up for whom he is and what he wants, even against Eve who only wants the best for him.Through space explosions, gambling, bar fights, more kidnappings, and a gradually deepening relationship, Rafe comes to value himself as more than a pleasure-giver and Taro comes to realize that he must be who he really is. The novel is literately written and a pleasure to read. If you hang in there past the slow start, this is a book you will thoroughly enjoy.This is a four-and-a-half Star novel.

I have the paperback format of the book, and every time I see it on my desk, I open it up to reread one of my favorite scenes. But that reminds me of another favorite, and then another, and soon I'm flipping to the beginning of the book to reread the whole thing. That way I get all of my favorites in order. Taro and Rafe may get off to a rocky start, but when they begin to work together, to get to know each other, they are an amazing team. The romance is believable and sweet, but there's plenty of action as well. A great book!
