Publisher's Summary

Since the dawn of human civilization, two warring factions of near-immortals - the descendants of the gods of old - have been secretly shaping its destiny. Amanda's small clan champions progress and peace, while their powerful enemy, the Doomers, propagates ignorance and war.

Descending from a single goddess - the only one to survive the ancient cataclysm that wiped out her kind - Amanda's clan members are forbidden to each other. And as the only other known immortals are their hated enemies, they've been long resigned to a lonely existence of fleeting trysts with human partners. That is, until Amanda, the goddess's youngest daughter and a researcher of paranormal abilities - makes a game-changing discovery; two of her test subjects might be dormant carriers of the immortal gene. But before she can prove it, she gets snatched off a Beverly Hills street by a huge Doomer.

Dalhu can't believe his luck when he stumbles upon the beautiful immortal professor. Presented with a once in a lifetime opportunity to grab an immortal female for himself, he kidnaps her and runs. If he ever gets caught, either by her people or his, his life is forfeit. But for a chance of a loving mate and a family of his own, Dalhu is prepared to do everything in his power to win Amanda's heart, and that includes leaving the Doom brotherhood and his old life behind.

Amanda soon discovers that there is more to the handsome Doomer than his dark past and a hulking, sexy body. But succumbing to her enemy's seduction, or worse, developing feelings for a ruthless killer is out of the question. No man is worth life on the run, not even the one and only immortal male she could claim as her own...Her clan and her research must come first....

The story of Dalhu and Amanda

This is a paranormal romance series and the fourth in the children of the Gods series. This book continues the Dark Stranger trilogy—Syssi and Kian’s books. The new hot mess of couple is our favorite drama queen scientist, Amanda and Dalhu the tall dark and brooding DOOM operative. Amanda gets herself kidnapped right off the streets, and though she fights her attraction she is quite taken with her captor. Dalhu intends to kidnap male clan members for his organization but when he runs into Amanda all previous thoughts fly out the window along with his sanity and his heart. I.T Lucas is fabulous author with gift of the written word.

Great series!

Each book just draws the reader in further and further! I can't wait for the next book in the series. The characters make you groan, get indignant, and laugh as they interact. Great series.

Awesome.

Another awesome addition to the Children of the Gods series! My only criticism is that the chapters were very short. But, other than that, it was great. Sexy, fun, and entertaining. I loved that it delved more into other characters this time, while the first three books mostly focused on Kian and Syssi. Dalhu and Amanda's story was very sweet and emotional. I loved this one.

Much better than the Dark Stranger series!

Not a whole lot of action but mainly character build ups on some upcoming stories but I thought Amanda and Dalhu had some sweet and lol moments. She's spunky and a fighter, nothing like boring, whinny and emotional Syssi. Kian deserves someone that is not nor acts like a child.

Fated enemies

This next installment of this series was exciting as well as passionate for Amanda who was kidnapped by a Doomer, who is trying to make her his own. Amanda is rescued during a very passionate moment.

Hooked!

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

YES, YES, YES!!

Any additional comments?

In the last two months, I have read/listened to the entire series and have pre-ordered the next book! I haven’t picked up another series during this time. Normally I listen to one series and read another. I could not put these books down.

I have never read any series like this one. I absolutely love that throughout the books you still hear what is going on with the previous characters. Instead of each book having its own story, it is more like one long story where new people get introduced as events happen. For me, this is the right balance of paranormal content. Nothing to crazy but just outside the realm of possibility.

Oh, I almost forgot the 2nd Best thing about this series is there is a new book every few months. :) It is not like other series where you have to wait a year or more for the next. I personally have to re-read the old book before the new release (I go through WAY too many books to remember all the details of a story I read a year ago). With only a few months between, I still remember all the details and keep track of the next release date.

I.T Lucas - please continue to write these stories for as long as possible. I am in love with all the characters and don’t want to let them go.

Amanda has the best story ever!

Amanda & Dalhu are perfect for each other. Andrew needs to stop thinking w/the wrong head. He hasn't spent enough time w/Amanda to even like her. She's too selfish for him & nobody would take her w/these flaws but Dalhu. Kian needs to stop trying to run everyone's life & everything in it.
