Format: Mass Market Paperback
REJAR is the second book in the Matrix of Destiny series and begins where KNIGHT OF A TRILLION STARS left off, with Rejar thrown through vortexes. The sexy Familiar (a species that can take 2 shapes - human or cat) lands in Ree Gen Cee Ing Land (Regency England), straight into the lap of Lilac (he's in cat form of course). Left slightly disorientated following his dimensional journey it takes several days for Rejar to realise that Lilac is his destined mate. With this revelation, the love hunt begins.
Lilac's world has been turned upside down. Along with the abrupt arrival of her new black cat with different coloured eyes, she suddenly has two men in her life. One is a wonderfully handsome dream lover with dual coloured eyes and the other is Nikolai, the new society sensation and strangely enough another man with dual coloured eyes, a mysterious prince intent on pursuing her. It is here that the story loses some of its impact. The hints that Nikolai, the cat and the dream lover are all one and the same person are pretty obvious and when Lilac fails to make this connection the reader is left feeling that she's not too bright (despite her reputation as a bluestocking). Further fault can be found with her attitude towards Rejar once she learns the truth of his otherwordly existence. What a wimp!!! These flaws however can be overlooked as we also have absolutely fantastic secondary characters; Traed (my hero), Lorgin, sly old Yaniff and Aunt Agatha (Lilac's guardian and possible future love interest for the wily old wizard perhaps).
Rejar is a man/cat to die for. In both forms he is playful yet predatory and very lusty but unbelieveably romantic. REJAR is yet another book by JOY which proves difficult to get hold of and it's obvious why. This book is a definite keeper and fans of lighthearted and wonderful romance rightly refuse to reinquish their copies.

Rejar, is the book we spend hours in our local bookstore searching for. It isn't just a fun read. It's magical. He is strong, sexy, seductive; a hunter who has spotted his prey. She is determined, independent, naive; nobody's victim. A love dance, from beginning to end. You will love this book.

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Deborah MacGillivray HALL OF FAMEVINE VOICE on 20 Oct. 2002
Format: Mass Market Paperback
At the end of Knights of the Trillion Stars, Rejar (brother to Lorgan ta'al Krue) went through to portal that connects to other times, and drops right into the lap of Lilac Devere, in Victorian England - but in the form of a cat. He is a shapeshifter, and he is soon using both forms in Lilacs World. While I adore this book in many places, others I was exasperated with Lilac's often childish nature. She really got to be a pain.
Rejar is much more aggressive and domineer, than the character in Trillion Stars, so it often hard to connect they are the same character.
I still enjoyed the book, just wish the rough spots had been smoothed out a bit.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Once again Dara has writen another purrfect book in REJAR. He is the most provocatively sexy man/cat. Lilac is absolutely purfect for him. The sex scenes are red hot. It wears you out just by reading them. Aunt Agatha is a darling. She would be purfect for Yaniff. Some readers have sugested this as a future story in the series and I think they are right.
Traed makes another welcome return in the book which is wonderful. I can't wait for his story which is 4th in the series. Gian Ren's story is next(3rd). I have just finished it and it is another wonderful story.
Please Dara write Traed's story fast, we can't wait for it. Well done on another great book.

Rejar is the second book in the series and it picks up where the first book left off, but with a new lead. Rejar, the cat shifter, arrives in Britain in early 1800s and sets his sights on, what we are lead to believe is, an independent young woman, determined to stay single and enjoy her life and wealth as a spinster. Her independence doesn't last long, because Rejar, is an overbearing and domineering man, who takes what he wants. Rejar and Lorgan (book 1) are both very similar and act the same way, they do what they want and their women must fall in line. Neither will take no for an answer, they lie - ok, they OMIT the truth - and trick their chosen "mates" for their own purposes. Why the women put up with that, I don't know. Apparently, fantastic sex makes up for it.

I found that both books, 1 and 2, are almost copies; the men are of the same character, their women feebly put up a fight at the beginning until they are sexed up witless by their men, throw in some sci-fi and some quest the manly man must complete, stir the whole lot and the woman ends up in another universe, like it or not. Again.

And again, I didn't find anything particularly thrilling or romantic about Rejar and Lilac's story. The sci-fi bit got old and, in the end, I skipped some latter parts of the book because I just couldn't take it. The author insists on this sexist idea of romance, where essentially the man's word is law, where the woman is always behind the man, not standing next to him. Honestly, there are much better romances out there.

Having been leant "Mine To Take" and enjoying it throuroughly I ordered "Rejar" as it is the preceding novel. As before, I ignored the truely embarrassing book cover and looked forward to reading "Rejar".

Unfortunately this book was no where near as enjoyable as "Mine To Take". The heroine Lilac, while she is a relatively true representation of the type of woman I would expect in the upper classes of Regency England, I really did want her to unexpectedly get stabbed at several junctures in this novel. She's very child-like, closed minded and stubborn throughout the story and I found it very hard to feel empathetic towards her. I found Rejar very needy and to be overly aggressive in places but he is understandably prevoked by an immature love interest.

There a some good points to this novel, I enjoy the sneaky glances into the lives, cultures and actions of the 'Familiars' and the 'Mystics'. I enjoyed the humourous look at Regency England through the eyes of someone totally alien to it - in both species and planet. There are times when Lilac has moments of maturity and understanding which were her only saving grace. The writing style is easy and fluid, Dara Joy does not waste time on overly descriptive similes abnd metaphors, leaving the reader to create their own world with ease.

I like my paranormal romances with a bit more paranormal to them, if you are the same, read Mine To Take instead. It can stand alone, and it's just as steamy but with a bit more substance to it (but don't expect a classic)
