Publisher's Summary

Julian has known Ella is the one for him from the moment he saw her picture, but when he finally frees her from captivity, she seems indifferent to him. Could he have been mistaken?

Ella’s rescue should’ve ended that chapter in her life, but it seems like the road back to normalcy has just begun and it’s full of obstacles. Between the pitying looks she gets and her mother’s attempts to get her into therapy, Ella feels like she’s typecast as a victim, when nothing could be further from the truth. She’s a tough survivor, and she’s going to prove it.

Strangely, the only one who seems to understand is Logan, who keeps popping up in her dreams. But then, he’s a figment of her imagination - or is he?

Children of the God Series

I always have to advise that I am in no way a book critic. I love this series snd I especially love Charles Lawrence narration of all the books I’ve listened to. I must say that I.T. Lucas’ imagination is AMAZING. I’ve read 26 of her books and dreading to get to the final one. I love how Kian and his clan are winning against the DOOMERS. I also love how each member is finding love with a dormant. This series should be a book or tv show. It’s almost like Twilight but more detailed and branched off into the lives of all the clan members. I don’t even have a favorite because I’m loving them all.

Ella endangers the clan

I love the COTG series and the last series were pretty intense. However this one is more so about Ella adjusting after her rescue. I find her character a bit annoying. Like she just found about immortals and she has these dreams with Logan (doomer) visiting her which she should have told someone about it instead of keeping it herself and now not even able to talk about him since she’s under impulsion thanks to her own doing. I get that’s she’s only 18, but the stuff she’s been through you would have thought she would be smarter and she’s not. Other then that I love everything else and I am looking forward to what happens next. I just hope she doesn’t endanger the clan!

Dragged on and BORING.

What happened? This series was going along great but Ella is so boring and insecure. It is like the story of Jackson and Tessa without the intense Bhathian's and Eva story to keep it balanced. I fell asleep TWICE listening because it was so BORING. I might skip the other 2 segments in her story totally.

Suspense

Relief and suspension. Always a winning combination in a book. Ella finally feels safe, but is she? Excellent book.

I enjoyed reading this book.I t was great 👍.

The writing really ceased you in and you can't put it down. Logan needs to be out down like a rabid dog. You really create people who are easy to hate.

yuck

Between Ella and her mother these few books in the series are not at all ok n my list of enjoyment .. I just didn't care for either of them and I could have smacked Ella for being so ungrateful.. Julian deserves so much better ..

love it more with Audible!


I am finding that listening is even better than reading for me. activates my brain more perhaps? in any case I highly recommend this book, it tells the tale of recovery from trauma in a pro "I am a person still!" way.

Julian and Ella... part 1

This is a paranormal romance and is the twenty-sixth in the Children of the God series and first in the Dark Dream Trilogy. We get a new couple, no shock that we get Julian and Ella. Totally adorable couple, or will be once Ella can begin exercising her past demons. Ms. Lucas shows that just because a rape isn’t violent doesn’t mean it doesn’t leave scars on the soul, awesome job.
