Publisher's Summary

Syssi's paranormal foresight lands her a job at Dr. Amanda Dokani's neuroscience lab, but it fails to predict the thrilling yet terrifying turn her life will take. Syssi has no clue that her boss is an immortal who'll drag her into a secret, millennia-old battle over humanity's future. Nor does she realize that the professor's imposing brother is the mysterious stranger who's been starring in her dreams.

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. Leading the clandestine battle from his luxurious L.A. high-rise, Kian is surrounded by his clan, yet alone. Descending from a single goddess, clan members are forbidden to each other. And as the only other immortals are their hated enemies, Kian and his kin have been long resigned to a lonely existence of fleeting trysts with human partners. That is, until his sister makes a game-changing discovery - a mortal seeress who she believes is a dormant carrier of their genes. Ever the realist, Kian is skeptical and refuses Amanda's plea to attempt Syssi's activation. But when his enemies learn of the Dormant's existence, he's forced to rush her to the safety of his keep. Inexorably drawn to Syssi, Kian wrestles with his conscience as he is tempted to explore her budding interest in the darker shades of sensuality.

At 82,000 words, Dark Stranger: The Dream is a full-length novel but it is not a standalone. Kian and Syssi's story is a three-book series. In book four, Dark Enemy Taken, a new couple takes the center stage. Follow the cast of intriguing characters as they fall in love while fighting for the survival of their family, and get swept away into the world of The Children of the Gods.

    "Great start"

    This was a good book to what I am forecasting as a great series. The narrator did a great job. He was not distracting in anyway and kept me engaged in the story. I only wish there was more sex.

    Story
    "This is the "new extended" version?"

    This Incomplete short story masquerading as a book is an outrage. imagine going to a movie and getting just the plot background and then it ends. The 5 star reviews are a setup. Don't know if this is the author's idea or the publisher's idea of how to make more money, but I will never buy again.

    "Uhhhhhh seriously????"

    Absolute worst book EVERRRRRRRRR!!! It was like a train wreck. I couldn’t help but keep listening because I couldn’t believe a book could be this horrible!! It’s like listening to your drunk friend tell a really long story that ends up having no point and you realize you just wasted hours of your life that you will never get back!!! And the narrator!!!! I’m sure he’s a lovely man but it was painful.

    "Great book!"

    The story is good. A little too explanatory in some chapters and it takes getting used to the voice of the narrator. It jumps from characters a lot but it's easy to follow the story line. Has cliff hanger which means I am hooked and had to buy the next gook. Good thing is not expensive! I can't wait to listen to the next one.

    "Disappointed"

    This book was hard for me to finish. I felt that the two main characters did nothing but yo yo on why they could or couldn't hook up and be together, not enough real drama or action, and I felt cheated at the end because it just left me hanging. 50 some chapters with no ending.... at all. It just stopped. Sorry, but I don't know if I'll buy another book Sad now

    "Didn't love it"

    This wasn't what I was expecting, even after sifting through several reviews. The idea of these "near immortals" was exciting, even intriguing, but the book wasn't as well written as I would have hoped. At times, the content seemed shallow and unrealistic.

    For my own personal taste, there was way too much cussing (I could have done without that) and there were several very explicit sex scenes.

    The cliffhanger was well done... if not for the cussing, sex, and mediocre narration, I might consider reading the rest of the series to see how things turn out. I will say that it was mildly entertaining.

    "BORING!!"

    Too many characters to try and keep up with. Confusing storyline. Seems as if the author was combining several stories that simply didn't sinc.

    Story
    "A new series"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    As this is the first of the series. I would like to hold judgement until the end. The story is setting up and Characters are being developed, but the plot and characters were not finish. It left me needing more if this is to be a stand alone book. IF it was the writers intention to leave the ending hanging in hopes to purchase additional books, it never happened for me... Other great writers have written more and finished the book and still left the reader wanting more. Not in this case.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    This book had a similar story line of JR WARDs Black Dagger Brotherhood. Or Lyndsey Sands, Argeneau series. I loath how the writers need to constantly explain the back story. Its like they think the reader can't remember, or the writer is needing words to fill up the space. Its okay with the next in line but just minimal is needed. Always dwelling characters...yuk


    What does Charles Lawrence bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I like the inflection of tone. The pace it sets and inference of plot.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Not yet. I need to hear the rest.


    Any additional comments?

    Make each book a stand alone. If a reader picked up others in the series then they can search out each characters book.
