A fascinating blend of Mythology, Cyber-war, and a tender Shades of Grey Romance, Dark Stranger – The Dream captivates the hearts and minds of readers around the world. 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. Kian's small clan championing progress, freedom and peace; their powerful enemy propagating ignorance, hate, and war. Leading the clandestine battle from his luxurious L.A. high-rise, Kian is surrounded by family, yet he feels alone. Descending from a single goddess – the only one to survive the ancient cataclysm that wiped out the gods and most of their immortal offspring – clan members are forbidden to each other. And as the only other known 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 Kian's sister Amanda – a researcher of paranormal abilities – 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 his sister's plea to attempt the Dormant's activation. But when his enemies learn of the highly coveted soothsayer's existence and attempt to grab her, he rushes her to the safety of his keep. Inexorably drawn to Syssi's shy beauty, Kian is startled by feelings he had sworn off long ago. Tormented by past mistakes, he wrestles with his conscience as he is tempted to explore her budding interest in the spicy passions he favors. When Syssi's paranormal foresight lands her a job at Dr. Amanda Dokani's neuroscience lab, it fails to predict, not only that her boss is an immortal who would drag her into a secret, millennia-old battle over humanity's future, but the professor's imposing brother who would alter her own. Despite his better judgement, will Kian succumb to Syssi's irresistible pull? And will Syssi discover that the man igniting her startlingly dark desires is a nearly two-thousand-year-old immortal? Warning. This book contains hot scenes and adult themes. Reader discretion is advised.

    Don't read if you want a strong female lead If you are like me and like your female leads to be strong and dynamic, don't expect that here. This is a Cinderella story that leaves you wanting a character worthy of the classic storyline. Instead we get a character who is so one dimensional she could be a stick figure.

This is a storyline that is all tell and no show, full of awkward backstory and overly detailed descriptions of how everyone looks. Personally, I am more interested in them as complex characters. I can skip the endless chiseled chests/jaw and dainty yet large breasted descriptions, especially when the scenes fall flat emotionally.

    They made me give it one star Flat characters. No tension. No involvement. Typos. No resolution in this book of any type. Childish writing. Only finished it to see how it would turn out. Basically click bait free book to make you buy others (theoretically). No clue how this got so many high ratings.

The author builds her own complicated legendarium based on ancient Sumerian documents and their descriptions of aliens. It is compelling and complicated world-building tied to real-life implications throughout the centuries. In this first installment, Lucas spends considerable time crafting the universe of the near-immortals as the descendants of goddesses. These near-immortals have some of the same physical and mental characteristics ascribed to vampires, such as quick healing, fangs, strength and speed and intensely compelling hyper-sexual manipulation. Two clans of the near-immortals have been at war for centuries and low-birth rates and warfare have reduced numbers to the point that the children of the gods are seeking alternatives to ensure the continuation of their race. One alternative includes seeking mortals with the dormant immortal gene. Dr. Amanda Dokani, sister to the clan regent, believes she has discovered two likely candidates. Syssi's precognition abilities are what first bring her to Amanda's attention, but the two develop a fast friendship. Amanda is sure Syssi may be a solution to the immortals' problems, but Amanda's brother Kian is skeptical. He indulges Amanda's research, but is more consumed by the day-to-day oversight of his large clan, the constant vigilance required to ward off their eternal enemies and marshaling the massive altruistic endeavors his clan sponsors. Then Syssi and Kian meet and the two are inexplicably drawn to one another. Soon afterward, Amanda's research is breached by their enemies and Syssi becomes a target. Without divulging all their immortal secrets, Amanda and Kian have to convince Syssi to come under their protection. The book is told in third person omniscient point of view, with each chapter headed by a name and that person's version of events. At times, the transition is a small overlap of a scene between two characters. This is one of my favorite narrative forms since I appreciate reading a scene from both the hero's and the heroine's point of view. I feel it enriches the story, and Lucas handles it deftly. Several chapters are told from the point of view of minor characters, which adds to the richness of the overall character development and makes the world-building more faceted. This book was a page turner as the "legends" of the immortals expanded and as the intrigue and danger from the enemy clan became more prevalent. Characters have distinct personalities. For instance, Dr. Amanda is brilliant, but a sultry and unapologetic femme fatale. Kian is a product of his ancient oligarchical leadership and is still having trouble adjusting to a more collaborative effort required in a digital age where the clan is spread all over the world. Syssi is shy and quiet, and probably the least fully developed main character, but I have hopes for her coming into her own in future installments. This book does not have a resolved ending, and in fact the author does not promise one until the third book. Luckily all three are already available and offered on Kindle Unlimited. This trilogy reminds me a little of the Krinar Chronicles by Anna Zaires. If you enjoyed those books, I think you will have a blast with these.

    Dear Goodreads, never, ever again recomend me a book like this again. It pains me that so many women gave it so many stars (I didn't even want to give it one, I would give it minus five, though). The female characters have the personality of a hair pin. Kian treats Sissy like a dumb child who has to be protected and taken care of and whatever. "Shh, baby, I'm here, you don't have to worry about anything, I'll take care of you, I'll provide." Give me a fucking break.

And they want to fuck but oh, wait, it's more than that because they met yesterday but they truly care about each other and they feel this connection and... Call me a feminist (please) but this book offended the shit out of me. I'm tired of women to be portrayed as stupid dumbasses waiting for the male to decide their fate. Cavemen need to stop writing romance books, or we have to stop reading them. I really regret reading this one.

    Intriguing romantic story. This isn't a typical vampire story, and instead of bloodthirsty vampires the immortals are a dying spices facing extinction.

    I am having horrible luck with finding anything Dark. I took the dang title at face value and thought dark romance; it wasn't. It was more of a frustrating romance, but it is a good thing I love those kinds of novels as well. Kian is a near-immortal. I love that Lucas categories them like this, they can die, but it is tough to do so. "Everything can die if you drop a nuclear bomb on them" Love that line. So this is a trilogy with a series wrap around. I don't know if that makes sense, but that i I am having horrible luck with finding anything Dark.

It feels like it wants to be like JRWard BDB but to be honest; it's a little more fluffy than that.

    Very different with the normal paranormal books that I've read so far. I'm so suck into the book that I didn't realise the time. The beginning of the book is very confusing for me. Cos there's quite a number of characters PoV. But later it's easy to catch up. Looking forward to next cos Dark Stranger the Dream left me hanging.

    I picked this up based on some recommendations. This is a new author to me but I love paranormal so I gave it shot. A bit slow to get moving. Loved the world building and the history of the immortals. The book got better as it went along. The story arc does not wrap up on this book. Kian and Syssi have 3 books in their HEA. I did buy the next two right away so I can get the whole story. Great secondary characters. Several chapters are in their POV as well.

This has gotta be a no for me, dawg.

    I really enjoyed this book! I've gotten into the paranormal romance genre lately and have really enjoyed it. I have found that some authors succeed at it more than others. I.T. Lucas is very talented and I really liked her usage of science in the book. When I read the description, I was a little worried that the science themes would be over my head, but she really explained them in a way that made it easy to understand.

Kian, their leader, believes that by hiding in plain sight among the large city's mortal population his people are safe from their enemies the Doomers. Both groups originate from the mythological gods and had been at war since antiquity, when the God Mordth, the God the Doomers worship, had been spurned by the goddess Annani, the matriarch of Kian's clan. He had sworn himself as well as his descendants to wipe out Annani together with her descendants, and to obliterate the gods' matriarchal tradition of a woman's right to choose her mate. The Doomers adhere to his hateful patriarchal legacy, and to keep human society at large from achieving democracy and enlightenment they manipulate global affairs and instigate wars. But the Doomers are not the only problem Kian's clan faces. Annani's descendants can't find immortals who descent from other goddesses to enrich their limited genetic (godly) pool. While Kian is leading the war, his sister Amanda who is a professor of neuroscience is leading a search for Dormants by testing mortals for paranormal abilities. Dormants are carriers of the godly unrealized genes who can be turned into immortals. Her research assistant Syssi's precognition ability is the strongest yet, but to activate Syssi Amanda needs Kian's help. When the Doomers get their hands on Amanda's research material and find about Syssi the story takes off on a page turning thrill ride. Each character has a unique voice and a fully developed personality, and the world building is incredible, with a complete culture and mythology going back to the time of the gods. I loved the deep friendship that develops between Sissy and Amanda despite how different from each other they are in almost every possible way, and how much both Amanda and Kian care about Syssi. The heart-pounding action and Sissy and Kian's titillating romance kept me reading into the night, while the funny scenes woven in between made me laugh out loud. By the time I finished book one I was completely immersed in the story, and by book four I was dreaming about it. The children of the gods is my new favorite urban fantasy series.

One of those that I grab a book as soon as a new one is out. Kian is the immortal son of the last surviving goddess and the leader of his clan in the US. He is gruff, short tempered, and the ultimate dominant alpha, but he is also selfless, honorable, totally devoted to his family, and a total hunk. Syssi is smart, shy and soft spoken, but hides a steel backbone. Working in a neuroscience lab, Syssi doesn't know that her boss, Dr. Amanda Dokani (who is Kian's sister), is an immortal and is testing people with paranormal abilities to find humans who are dormant carriers of immortal genes. Amanda suspects that Syssi is a dormant and wants Kian to attempt her activation. He refuses because he finds seducing and deceiving Syssi dishonorable. But when Kian meets Syssi at his sister's lab, his resistance falters, especially since he is forced to spend time with her while rescuing her and Amanda from his enemies the Doomers. Nevertheless, he tries to do the right thing and stay away from Syssi. Syssi feels powerful attraction to Amanda's gorgeous brother, but is intimidated by him and his behavior is confusing her. Syssi thinks he is way out of her league. This was such an exciting read, and not only because of the hot romance. It was fast paced and suspenseful, and the characters read like real people with real problems. I loved both Kian and Syssi, as well as the rest of the cast, and can't wait to find out what happens to them in the next book in the series – Dark Stranger Revealed.

    What a hot load of garbage. I can't decide whether I'm more mortified that I finished this book or proud I've got fortitude enough to skim through such mindless drivel until the last page. The characters were one-dimensional and sociopathic, but not in an interesting way. The story line may have had potential had it been crafted with a bit of finesse instead of bludgeoned into submission by a meat tenderizer. It felt painful to write, trumped only by how painful it was to read. I got the book via What a hot load of garbage.

    Extensive world building set the stage very well in this first installment of this series. Looking forward to reading more in this series as well as from this author. I would recommend this read to any paranormal romance fans. I received this book free through Goodreads first reads.

    Really enjoyed this book but it was quite a slow pace. I’m not sure I want to commit to 3 or more long books per couple at that pace. Otherwise I would’ve gladly continued.

    Very slow start, way too many points of view and not enough detail. Not enough world building happening. Kian and Sissy are ridiculous. They meet say almost literally two words to each other, Sissy falls asleep on Kian in a five minute car ride and bam! They're in love. Just like that, Kian is whining about how being seperated from her feels wrong (and the author never really explains why that's a necessity) after he has spent a total of maybe 90 non-communicative minutes with her in his whole c Very slow start, way too many points of view and not enough detail.

Really? I give up.

    I don't understand the high ratings for this book. The idea of the story was good; however, the author killed it for me by the constant droning of explanations and inner thoughts. To me the droning was just to fill pages but in doing so I had a very hard time finishing this book. It took me several days because I had to keep putting it down because I was bored. Even the sex was boring. I won't purchase any more from this author. I was disappointed with the author and the people who rated this so I don't understand the high ratings for this book.
