    I have really enjoyed this series...but this book cut off so abruptly, it was almost like mid sentence. And did there really need to be so much chasing around... I really hope these stories start to tie in with the Doomers... because they are starting to lose substance and are all just filler!!

    Dark Widow's Secret--Possible Spoilers I have mixed feelings about this book. I kind of understand that the writer needed some way to introduce new Dormants into the series and to get Magnus and Julian to meet their respective mates. (I'm loving Magnus almost as much as I love Anandur and Brundar!) I don't really like Ella or Vivian. Unless one or both of them grows a set and starts kicking ass, I'm done with them already. I do like Parker (Vivian's 12 year old son). I get the feeling he's gonna h Dark Widow's Secret--Possible Spoilers I have mixed feelings about this book.

I know little to nothing about the sex trafficking trade, so I speak from my inexperience...But Ella just seemed so dumb. How do you convince yourself that you are in love after 3 weeks? Vivian had already promised to go with her to NY in a month and Ella agreed. How does she let "Romeo" talk her into running away? And why would she refused to engage Vivian's telepathy sooner? I guess there wouldn't have been a story if Ella had done the smart things. And that's the problem I think I'm having with this book. The entire thing is based on dumb decisions. The entire time I'm reading, I'm saying--either in my head or out loud--"what the #@!& are you doing," "that's just so stupid," or "dumd ass!". I can't enjoy the story when I'm feeling this way about it. Maybe there is a bright spot and the situation so far may bring more of the Sari's clansmen into the story. Just... save me from the stupid and whiny stuff...

    I love this series, however, I am extremely disappointed that they didn't end this story but make you buy the next book to find out what happens. Each book may introduce the next book in the series and that's okay, it makes us keep coming back, but to suddenly end without a finish to the story you just spend so much time on is wrong. True followers of this author & story line will continue to read this series but we don't need a carrot dangling in front of our nose to find out what happens next.

    Such great characters. Each and every one of these characters you can fall in love with. Jason is such a smart, laid back guy. Hitting on an older woman but still being respectful when she turns him down. Magnus, such a gentleman. Deep down we know he is lonely since he no longer has Anandur as a partner or a roommate. I love that he chooses to get a puppy for a companion. Vivian is a strong, independent, single mother doing her best to raise her 2 children on her own. Ella is a teenage virgin lo Such great characters. Each and every one of these characters you can fall in love with. Jason is such a smart, laid back guy.

I love that he chooses to get a puppy for a companion. Vivian is a strong, independent, single mother doing her best to raise her 2 children on her own. Ella is a teenage virgin looking for love. Ella falls hard for Romeo and although she knows her mother is being fair to her about going to NY, Romeo still convinces Ella to betray her mother's trust and go without Vivian knowing. Ella soon realizes what a mistake that was. Magnus falls for Vivian at first sight. They seem to hit it off easily and there is chemistry. Magnus is also good with Parker. So far I can definitely see this relationship blooming. Magnus deserves to be happy and he would make such a great dad and husband. I can't wait for the next in this story.

    I didn't really feel anything for Magnus from previous books but now i find myself really loving his character. It's sweet how he starts to feel for Vivian and her whole family and i'm hoping he gets a happy ending. Still not totally on board with Vivian yet but still a strong character. Ella who's dilemma this book is centered around has got to be one of the most stupid characters written for this series.

I was not on board with the whole telepathy thing from the beginning and you can't tell me that she wasn't able to send her mom a detailed message of what was happening and how to avoid suspicion way before she actually did. The ending was a bit too abrupt and convenient but at least i don't have long until the next book.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. The whole series is filled with plot holes and impossible situations but this book is the worst. An 18 year old virgin gets kidnapped by a human trafficker and her reaction is “let me just sit here and listen to what he has planned for me because I’m curious”.

There is zero freaking out, zero attempts to escape except trying to open one door. Just calm acceptance. Then the plan to rescue her is completely unreal just like all the other plans in this series. None of them would ever work in the real world. Just sloppy writing (grammar/spelling mistakes included) and a plot that was not well thought out.

    A real rescue mission The action and scene are real. Young women and girls are taken by scumbags like Dmitriv. Yet, many moms and dads are in denial that their child may have went willingly with someone that befriended them. Teach your children that love is never rushed or pressured, and if someone is pressuring them to do something that goes against their common sense, they need to run fast. I give this book five stars because it's engaging with several new characters that may be Dormants. I'm r A real rescue mission The action and scene are real.

Of course the book ends in the very middle of the excitement, being only 296 pages long. I get frustrated with the shortness when two books could easily be combined into 2. If not on KU, I would not be able to spend that kind of money on this series so I am thankful for KU.

    LOVED IT! So much action in this book it was brilliant. Loved the new characters and getting to know some of the previously smaller side characters better. Vivian and Ella are really strong female leads and utterly believable. Both were strong of heart and strong of mind. Magnus is a hunny, and not just because he's a Scot. He's a perfect male lead, strong, thoughtful, reliable and totally kick was but approachable and with a softer side to him also. It's now 06.00 and I 've been up reading thro LOVED IT!

    EXCITING! Dark Widow's Secret is actually a novel featuring two couples: Vivian and Magnus, and Ella and Julian. It centers around Turner and the group of Guardians attempting to rescue Ella from a slavery ring that has taken her, and threatened her family. Magnus is protecting Vivian and Parker, and naturally falling in love with this small family. I love how the chapters bounce back and forth between the storylines, keeping the action going until the end, and the inevitable cliffhanger.... EXCITING!

    A Must Read Series Having read all the books in this series it is one that I strongly recommend for ALL to read, there is romance, action, drama as well as a little science fiction. It is also a series that I recommend that you read in order or as written with maybe the exception of the one about the goddess and her sister (can't remember their titles as I write this review). I assure all an enjoyment.

    Obviously if I am on book 23 of a series it is amazing. Each book builds on the previous books. They are generally written with a three books per each major couple and this is the second book in Magnus and Vivian’s story. The clan has taken on combating sex trafficking as their mission and Vivian’s daughter has been lured away and sold. They are close to finding her at the end of the book. Can’t wait for the next for the HEA.

    No amount of review can do this series justice I never expected to love this series so much since I happened upon the first book that got me hooked! It's totally movie worthy, but it's going to be hardwork and lots of impossible feat to make it happen, and if it does, I'm sure I would get all of it! This new adventure with new characters are amazing! I can't put it down! Now that the secret is out, I wonder what the curse this secret may lead to!

    There is just the right amount of suspense in this book. I'm so glad I have been away from this series for a while and will now get to move directly to the next book...Dark Widow's Curse. I can't wait to find out what happens next because Magnus and Vivian are well-developed characters. I can't wait to see how they find their HEA. And...what will they do with her son Parker? I.T.

    Fantastic. I love the series. The more I read, the better it gets. There is a good balance between romantic and action. The characters are well conceived and credible the family dimension makes it also very interesting and now that we know Anani’s story, there is another dimension on the story and expectations are high for the following books. Hope there will be plenty more to come.

    Disappointed I feel like I should have stopped reading at book 22. I'm not as interested in these characters and their stories are way drawn-out and predictable. The characters are kind of annoying... And the things they do sometimes go against everything else they were doing... I skimmed a lot of the book because it lost it's appeal. I'll finish magnus and Vivian story but I doubt I'll finish the rest of books. Disappointed I feel like I should have stopped reading at book 22.

    I put off reading this series because there were so many books I had to read to catch up but I am so glad I did. It's a very good series. I love the concept of the guardians. They fight to protect all who are weaker when they could easily destroy. I love all the characters and enjoy reading their journeys to find their mates. I always look forward to the next book.

    I can honestly say I struggled getting through this book. Not because it was a bad book, but because the topic and storyline was too difficult to read. I know what young kids gi through with sex trafficking and I struggled through reading this with a sick stomach. The truth is, it's very real, and the world needs ri do more to stop it.

    Another hit. I am an avid reader and love to read all types of books. Until I stumbled onto the works of I.T. Lucas. Since then I have read nothing but her great series starting with Children of the Gods. The writing is so fluid and just flows from one thing to another. I can't wait to get into the next book.

    Five stars! The Children of the Gods series is absolutely amazing! The intricate story lines of the main character(s) and multiple pov is riveting. It's never dull! Each character is unique and allows the reader to dive in head first into an intense journey. Five stars! The Children of the Gods series is absolutely amazing!
