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....

Glad I kept going, series keeps getting better!

This series is truly an ensemble. I typically hate when main characters change with each book and when I saw this installation would feature Amanada and Dalhu, I was a bit skeptical. I'm so invested in Syssi and Kian and don't want them to just fade away. Well - I am SO HAPPY I decided to go for it because this series is really an ensemble story, and the author doesn't ditch or ignore the characters we've already come to love, she just keeps blending in more characters and the world building is becoming so rich as we go along.

Dalhu and Amanda = HOLY FUCKING HOTNESS. Like, damn. Now I'm fully invested in their story too, and every time a new chapter would announce it was one of their POVs, I'd cheer. We still have Kian and Syssi's POV, along with a handful of others and the tapestry of the whole world is getting deliciously complex.

This series has everything: paranormal awesome powers and lore, action scenes, HOT HOT STEAMY SCENES, plotting and drama and philosophical contemplations, power moves and even the very powerful immortals just acting pretty human.

No idea how I hadn't come across this series before now, but I am so happy I have. With 56 books, I'm so stoked for the long haul!!

I happen to love the narration and find the voice is perfect for delivering the brutal sexiness of the immortals gettin' down. Whew.

A nice change of pace.

It was nice to listen to something other than politics and COVID19 statistics. I enjoyed it.

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.

excellent series

series is very good my only concern is that the books are too short, this is the fourth book in the series and I feel they could have been done over 2 books , as it is concerning the same people and the same story but still worth a listen
