Year: 2452. Seeking a cure for her ill brother, Sophia (Sam) McLaren must leave Earth to journey into the unknown. She finds galactic intrigue... plus a love transcending the vast expanse of space. But can she persuade JorVaal 5 that love can be forever?

JorVaal 5 Lanquist has a galactic catastrophe on his hands3⁄4plus a headstrong female from the despised planet Earth. Will he be able to set aside age-old prejudices and admit he’s actually feeling an ancient emotion called love?

4 Stars! This book is so richly detailed and multi-layered I could almost believe that Xaspaar is in the universe. There are aliens, genetically altered humans, and, of course, the Earthlings who migrated hundreds of years before, who only remember Earth with distain. This one is not to be missed.--Romantic Times Magazine

Sound interesting so far? I've only scratched the surface of this intricate and nicely detailed science fiction romance. There is also heavy political intrigue, which gives the reader a nice glimpse into the other species (fourteen) that form part of the [Galactic Core Coalition]. There are highly entertaining villains (of all shapes and sexes) that add suspense and thrills. Mention of the 'Ancients' is also fascinating, and I haven't even mentioned what the title is all about. That should be about enough to whet your appetite, but if it isn't, keep in mind that JANUS IS A TWO-HEADED GOD is extremely well written, with good character development and excellent attention to detail, the latter most important in any science fiction novel, in my opinion. The book moves smoothly and it takes very little time before the reader becomes engrossed in the world of space travel and wormholes, unicopters and Uortzks. What are wormholes, you say? Don't wait any longer, get your copy of JANUS right away and find out for yourself!--Romance Reviews Today.

JANUS IS A TWO-HEADED GOD is a fast-paced futuristic romance that confronts questions of culture, destiny and ultimately, the nature of love itself. Knight's characters are complex and very human, but still heroic. The story has a bunch of loveable secondary characters to round it out but the meat of the romance itself is the cultural differences between JorVaal and Sam. Though both are from fully human stock, JorVaal's upbringing in a different world leads to more than a few conflicts over any future that they may have together. It is an excellent example of science fiction romance written properly -- using the cultures and possibilities of the future to full advantage. Paranormal fans may latch onto the prophecy aspect of the story which, though, minor, was still interesting. Destiny is always a fun concept in a romance novel, and though it is at times subtle it is interesting enough to leave one with the hope that we will learn more about the Ancients in the future! JANUS is a delightful novel with enough thrills and warm moments for any reader, but those who enjoy their romance with a twist of otherworldly allure will enjoy it most of all.--ParaNormal Romance Reviews.
