Through meditation, self-reflection, and hard work, she hopes to shed the shackles of society, free herself of her father’s crippling expectations, and most importantly, make peace with the voices in her head. This is where she belongs. Except, membership comes with a hefty price, doubts are sacrilege, and leaving is not as easy as walking out the front gate. Is living in utopia worth the sacrifice? Anastasia believes so until a new acolyte changes her mind not only about Safe Haven but also about herself and the world she lives in. Apparently, the gods of old were not a myth, their immortal descendants share the planet with humans, and she might be a carrier of their genes.

    Wanting more! I felt like a filler episode, so to speak. It gave background and information but that was it. I guess it had enough details to continue the series and take it in another direction but it didn't give as much as the others. Or is it that it was just to short. Idk It left me wanting more but also something that would have been good as a summary or memory playback. Wanting more! I felt like a filler episode, so to speak.

    Fabulous series I can hardly wait until each new installment of the Children of the Gods series comes out. The novel basic premise of the books is that there is a race of beings that are nearly immortal, descended from the Sumerian gods of antiquity. Though they have superior strength and are hard to kill, they must remain hidden within the human population because they are vastly outnumbered. There are two (possibly three) groups in opposition to one another: the Clan, decendants of the goddess Fabulous series I can hardly wait until each new installment of the Children of the Gods series comes out. The novel basic premise of the books is that there is a race of beings that are nearly immortal, descended from the Sumerian gods of antiquity. Though they have superior strength and are hard to kill, they must remain hidden within the human population because they are vastly outnumbered. There are two (possibly three) groups in opposition to one another: the Clan, decendants of the goddess Annani, who are champions of Western civilization; and their enemies, the Brotherhood, a group of Immortals led by Navuh, who seek for world dominance. Above all, though the stories have greater political and cultural significance and implications that are fascinating, they are love stories about members of the Clan finding true love. This story follows a mission to rescue a young woman from a cult. It is a natural extension of the Clan's ongoing commitment to fighting human exploitation and trafficking, and Turner's business of hostage rescue and retrieval. Leon, Peter, and Eleanor go undercover to a retreat run by Safe Haven, the possible cult to bring Anastasia out. It is purported to be a free love, self actualization group helping people find their place in the world. Every indication is that it is a typical cult, but so far they have only uncovered that it's a big money maker for the leader Emmett. However, the investigators begin to question what exactly is Emmett? There are indications that he is much more than he seems. Will they be able to get Anastasia out? Do they need to do more than that based on what might be happening to the other followers, especially the women? Will Leon and Anastasia find love together? This is a great read, a fun mystery, and a sexy love story.

That creates a huge problem for him and Carol, but is a way for them to unearth information about another group of unknown immortals that may be in Asia somewhere !! And Lisa finally meets Parker and they seem to really hit it off, if Parker becoming super aroused all the time is not just him being a typical male teenager, lol !! Can kids that young be fated mates ?? New questions and new mysteries abound in this book 47 ! An immensely interesting and awesome world Isabel has created in this Children of the Gods series !!! A must read , but I suggest starting at the beginning of course !!

Looking forward to the next book!! (Able to read the ARC for this story and my review is my own and voluntary)

    So-So I like that we get better pictures of different members of Annani's clan. We've seen a little of Leon in a few of the other books, so it was nice to see more of him. I really liked the team of Eleanor and Peter. Peter is funny and they play off of each other well. I think the thing I like least about this series is how the chapters jump around to unrelated scenes: from Leon, Peter and Eleanor to Parker and Lisa looking at a potential high school to Lokan dealing with his father.

Most, if not all, of the books so this. It's like a soap opera, but in book form. I'll get over it though. I mean it's been over 40 books and I'm still here, so... Now, there big question/mystery it's: who is Emmett Haderech??? I can't wait to find out!

    Dark Haven Illusion is book 47 in the Children of the Gods series, and the first of the Dark Haven trilogy. It is the story of Leon and Anastasia. Leon is a Guardian that has been sent into the Safe Haven retreat with Eleanor to help extract heiress Anastasia, who may or may not be a Dormant. What he finds is a woman who hears voices and is immune to compulsion and thralling which makes her an excellent candidate. The two are drawn together and it could only be Fated.

    Loving me some Leon I always want to rate this series higher. Each time I read the next book, I think the next one can't get better. But it does. This is by far one of my favorite series ever.

    Good read Lucas' books always give you new couples that learn to trust and love each other even under the hardest and sometimes the oddest situation. Lucas' books are sexy but not just about the sex. Don't get me wrong great sex is important but a book has to be more than people having sex all the time. I also like how the books tie history into the fiction. They make you think about the other historical facts that could be changed to fit into future stories.

    New Ones are the Lucky Ones If you are one that has not read any of the Children of the Gods by I T Lucas, then you are lucky enough to have 47 books and counting to lose yourself in . I can't say enough good things about the experience of this series. I anxiously await each new book and am so grateful that the wait isn't as long as with some authors. You , new readers of this series, are in for a treat. Start from book#1 and go for it.

    Miss the main group This story about a retrieval mission to get a possible dormant out of a cult scenario just didn’t do as much for me as the previous books. The writing quality is good but it seemed slower than the others and I didn’t develop any attachment to the characters. I will continue reading the series but it might be running it’s course.

    Each book in the series that I read leaves me craving the next episode! I usually avoid reading anything with multiple episodes, but the characters are so well crafted and the story so compelling, that I am addicted to Children of the Gods and can’t wait for the next development.

    Michel B

    Despite loving the series, sadly the characters of this book are some of the less interesting ones. I was bored by the main couple and was almost skipping chapters to see some of the other interesting characters of the series. In a great series there have been some weak books, for me this is one of those.

    Interesting story! There’s a lot happening in the story. It’s not just the beginning and our introduction to Anastasia, but also major things changes for Lokan are coming that will affect all immortals. Parker, the youngest immortal in the village has been introduced to the younger sister of David, Annani’s daughter Sari, the head of the Scottish clan. More adventures to come!

    Anastasia isn't a likable character but When I started this I immediately didn't like Ana. She's weak and whiney and I just didn't care for her. When she gets involved with Sam/Leon she suddenly got a personality. I'm not sure how I feel about that....but I just preordered the next book. It's my guilty pleasure.

    Recovery Leon and Anatasia's romance was sweet, but the mystery surrounding Emmet was intriguing is he an immortal? The shift to focus on China and possible immortals there is another mystery.

    Brilliant Dark Haven Illusion, book 48 of The Children of the Gods series lives up to the high standard that I T Lucas obtains in her writing. I have read all of the series and most of then more than once. From the first to the current last book the story just flows. I look forward to the next book and I highly recommend these books to everyone.

    Love this series, the idea of building one character from the beginning and then continuing to add more to make it a community, family, and network is genius. Each character brings more to the others and has their own story, love it
