Dark Stranger Revealed by I.T. Lucas is the second book in The Children of the Gods series. After reading a synopsis of the first book I was immediately intrigued and excited to read this book. If you really break down the concept, it sounds like a corny X-rated adult movie idea. An immortal race is trying to survive by finding "Dormant" humans that may be able to be turned into immortals. Males are the only gender able to produce venom to turn others and the only way to trigger the body to produce venom is through sexual acts (with females) and aggressive acts (with males). Not to mention, the venom serves as an aphrodisiac for women, causing immediate orgasm when injected.

Moving past this very basic concept, there is a whole story taking place.  You learn a little about each character's past. Plus, as you are reading you gain insight into everyone's thoughts, which helps to further develop an understanding of each character's present. This story is well written, organized, and detailed. I think it is an original idea for a romance novel. I have seen plenty of vampire romances, but Lucas' idea takes the legend of vampires and puts a whole new twist on things. These immortals are not evil blood suckers, but a dying race trying to survive by injecting humans in hopes of turning them. 

This book definitely earns 4 out of 4 stars! I was completely hooked from start to finish and did not want to put it down until I was done! I found myself devastated that the story was over already and wanting to read more.  I strongly recommend any romance novel enthusiasts to read Dark Stranger Revealed, but make sure you start the series at the beginning with Dark Stranger the Dream, part of The Children of the Gods series by I.T. Lucas. It is a fast-paced paranormal romance novel that will keep you begging for more!
