Favorite Quote: “Who’d have thought a broody, angry man, a death goddess descendant with a badly damaged soul, could kiss like an erotic dream come true?“
Nikki Glass went from an average everyday private investigator to an immortal descendant of Artemis in a matter of minutes. Now a member of the Liberi, a group of immortal descendants, Nikki is struggling to find a way to fit into a life she never imagined or wanted for herself. When the Olympians come to them for help against a insane god who is using dogs to commit vicious murders throughout the city, Nikki’s gift is the only one who that can lead them to the murderer. As Nikki and her friends struggle for a way to bring this mad man and his dogs “to heel”, they learn that the Olympians indirectly started this war. Conspiracies, deception, and betrayal are combine together for a climatic finale that leaves you reeling.
Deadly Descendant, the second book in Jenna Black’s Nikki Glass series, is an action packed urban fantasy based upon Greek mythology. Fast pacing, well plotted story lines, and engaging characters will hook you into this entertaining world that Ms. Black has written. The supernatural world that Ms. Black has created is simplistic in its construction yet each layer we uncover reveals a twisting mass of lies and half truths that it rest upon. The result is a fascinating and addictive world you can’t wait to further explore.
