Lucas Series Sumary: From the beginning of time there have been near immortal beings who have molded humanity, been the object of worship but who as a race almost destroyed each other and human civilization. Now only two Gods are left both sworn enemies: The followers of Morta, the Doomers and the descendants of the Goddess Annani. The Dark Guardian novels are Bathian and Eva’s story. We know Bathian from all the previous novels but until these books Eva is a stranger and only made reference to in Nathalie and Andrew’s Dark Warrior books. As well as telling Bathian and Eva’s story these set of novels will continue the investigation into other possible dormants as well as cultivating a delectable side love story. The series continues to wow in its uniqueness, its inventiveness and its amazingly versatile characters and its amazing world building including how she injects brilliant 21st century technology into this clan of centuries to millennial aged immortals. Bathian and Eva have a history and it’s interesting to see how Lucas cultivates it because of that history. The Clan continues to prepare for some foreseen war between themselves and their mortal enemies, The Doomers and in the investigation into this enemy there are some revelations that will really have the pages flying. The dialogue is dark although there are many light-hearted moments and of course there are some piping hot love scenes. This series is addictive, fast paced and fun but they must be read in order. SUMMARY: Now that Bathian has found his daughter Nathalie and she is safely mated he is as determined as ever to find the one woman he never forgot, the only woman he ever loved, his true mate and Nathalie’s biological mother Eva. He hasn’t seen her since she told him she was pregnant over three decades earlier and since she’s an expert at hiding finding her won’t be easy, but he won’t give up until he succeeds. Eva always thought her youthfulness was due to a government experiment gone bad as was afraid they may one day come looking for her so to save the daughter she loves more than life she disappeared without a trace. Then one day the one man she could never quite get out of her mind and her heart, Nathalie’s father tracks her down and tells her a story that is too fantastical to be made up.

And there is so much more that lies ahead. I'm sure I'll be enjoying this series for a long, long time.

    The overall story is brilliant but the writing is turning into a soap opera Shame as with a great editor JR Ward would know this author’s name

    The series is pretty good and I have some favourite characters, like Jackson, Tessa, and Carol but the writing is tedious. The author sometimes uses contractions other times she doesn't; I just find it makes the story flow weird. Maybe if they had a better editor it would be better. I do find the last two better than books 4-9.

    I finished the book today. I must say that the story still keeps getting better and better. The plot is getting more interesting and characters developing in more natural way then in other works/books of paranormal romance. I do love the fact that even if the more central story line spins around Eva & Bhathian, we still know what's going on with the rest of people around them. Can't say that I love all the characters in the series. However, even those (like Nathalie, who annoys even me by now) m I finished the book today.

    Entrenched in this Storyline I'll be honest, I'm thoroughly mesmerized with Lucas' mythology. What talent and imagination to be able to keep me fascinated and hypnotized with this urgent need to keep on reading these books about these people. I'm an avid reader, but I can lose interest very quickly if I don't feel that "grab" that I'm feeling now.

I already know that I'll greatly miss this fascinating story. Pretty verbose, huh?! I'm not usually this gabby, so respectively, I'm going to end this rant, and go on to the last (I hope not!) book.

    So much going on now There are a lot of characters and story lines being introduced in this book so it felt like a lot of jumping around to different character's POV's. I love Bhathain but I just can't warm to Eva. She just seems like a moody cold fish. She is always so dismissive of Bhathain and expects him to come running whenever she snaps her fingers for sex. It's rude. I am excited to see where the other stories go but I would like to see the romance part of these books wrap up faster and not So much going on now There are a lot of characters and story lines being introduced in this book so it felt like a lot of jumping around to different character's POV's.

It's rude. I am excited to see where the other stories go but I would like to see the romance part of these books wrap up faster and not be stretched out over three books. The constant back and forth and pages of mundane introspection is what makes me rate these books at a three instead of a four or five. If the author cut out a lot of irrelevant junk, these books would be better.

    Amazing Another win for Ms.Lucas! This story, a blend with Bathian/ Eva, and Nathalie’s Baby girl to her transition was wonderful, every character played a wonderful role. Exiting, loving and sexy. Jackson and Tessa are so precious. But Nath is not my favorite character, she bossy and seems to only think of herself, Andrew does it all for her. The more I delve into their story it nagging at me the she’s not that great . If it was the author’s way of bringing out those sentiments, then she done i Amazing Another win for Ms.Lucas!

    This is a paranormal romance series and the twelfth in the Children of the Gods series, and second in the Dark Guardian trilogy. Bhathian has decided he will do anything to be with Eva, he knows in his heart of hearts that she is his fated mate. Eva is coming to grips that she is immortal and no longer needs to be on the run. She is now a girlfriend, a mother again and now a grandmother. For a woman who has kept all ties to a minimum she is getting tied down fast.

    I really debated what to rate this book. I love the series! The writing is great as is the editing! But the more books there are the harder they are to read. I don't mind changes of POV (point of view) during a book. I like to know what other characters are thinking, even the occasional bad guy POV. However, with this series the more books there are, the more POV's there seem to be. It can get very confusing! For example, the first 8 chapters are 8 different POV's. There are approximately 13 in I really debated what to rate this book. I love the series! The writing is great as is the editing! But the more books there are the harder they are to read.

    Love, love, love!!! I am so addicted to the these books! I just finished reading J.R. Ward book, so I was looking for something else. I ran across some of your reviews, so I decided to take a chance on yours. I'm so glad I did. You have a fan for life.😍 You have such a way of bringing the characters to life. It's like I'm right there. As long as you continue to write, I will continue to read! Thank you!

    Dark Guardian Craved ( The Children Of The Gods Book12 ) I was worried that something would happen to Nathalie Or Her Baby, so many good things happened in this book.Andrew and Nathalie had some wonderful changes. Bhathian and Eva are finally on the brink of major changes, also I am very happy that Jackson Is Pulling Tessa Out Of Her Shell. There are allot of worries in the book to come but also some excellent surprises,I hope. ;~)

    Tessa and Jackson I'm dying to see where their story will go. We have fell in love with Kian and Sissy, Amanda and Dahlu, Andrew and Nathalie, Bathian and Eva, now Tessa and Jackson, and so many characters still yet to have their story... My praises to I. T. Lucas once I start a new story I can't put it down and then I am ready for the next one.

    Must read I love the characters and the storyline. It has you laughing,crying,and angry for the characters. I am going to go crazy waiting for the next book. I started this one and like the others could not put it down until I finished it. Now I will go back and re-read the whole series again. Love the books. Thank you for sharing you great stories with us.

    Captivating I will admit there are stories to be told in this series. The Children Of The Gods will hold you captive. There are several stories going on and each subject matter seem to connect in a way that holds a reader's attention. All the elements which make for a good read are there to take you on a page turning journey.

    Eva's quandary Eva finds herself to be more and more reliant on Bhathian being there for her. She realised that she has to decide whether they stay together or not. Nathalie h has a baby and faces transition. Roni does more undercover work for Andrew. There's a lot going on in this book.

    Another one of the all time favorite books in this series and I.T. Lucas is one of my very favorite author. I love this series! As I finished one book went to the next! I dont see how in the world each book didn't get 5 stars. Go get book 1 see what you think. I'm betting you will love it!!! Book 13 if you have read it this far I imagine you agree with me this is an awesome series!

    Characters You Can't Get Enough Off Dark Guardian Craved is book 12 of I.T. Lucas" The Children of the Gods series. This is a continuation of Eva and Bhathian and Natalie and Andrews story. The other characters in the storyline also progress. With each new book we learn something new about the immortals past. Can't wait to see what's next.

    I like the story’s over all. However, I have found as I get into these after book 8-10 I T Locas seems to sometime forget her characters. Example. Chapter 15. “Amanda shook her head. “No. I don’t even like alcohol.” She goes on to state a few more things about her dislike for drinking. Amanda is the character in all the other books mixing drinks first thing as she has guest over.

    Can't read enough, LOVED this one also. Funny, sexy and has witty and believable storylines. My dislike is only they are short stories and chapters . I have told my book buddies to read also and will not be disappointed. Please hurry with the next one.
