[Review] - Deadly Descendant by Jenna Black
Author: Jenna Black
Series: Nikki Glass
Genre: Urban Fantasy
Release Date: April 24, 2012
I received this book for review from Simon & Schuster, in exchange for an honest review.
Summary: As a living descendant of Artemis the Huntress, private investigator Nikki Glass knows how to track someone down. But when an Oracle shows up, warning the descendants about wild dog attacks in Washington D.C., Nikki is afraid it might be a trap. The Olympians believe the “dogs” are jackals, controlled by a blood-crazed descendant of the Egyptian death-god Anubis.
Whatever. . . . If Nikki hopes to muzzle Dogboy, she’s got to catch him in the act. But when she stakes out a local cemetery, she ends up face-to-snout with a snarling pack of shadow-jackals whose bite is worse than their bark. These hellhounds are deadly—even for an immortal like Nikki. “Dog” spelled backwards may be “god,” but that won’t stop Nikki from teaching these old gods some new tricks. Like playing dead.
Thoughts: Nikki Glass is a descendant of the goddess Artemis. She is also a private investigator - which makes her quite good at finding things. Hellhounds are attacking people which is a problem for both the Olympians and Liberi. Nikki must find & stop the descendant who is behind the attacks - before both fractions are exposed.
The first book in this series, Dark Descendant was a surprise read for me last year. I loved it more than I thought I would. So, when book two arrived I was really excited to start reading it.
Excellent Read! With a new series I always hope book two is gonna be just as good as the first. But there was no need to worry, this one was full of awesome. Deadly Descendant is a page-turner, full of action that is heart racing and addicting. Once again Nikki makes a wonderful heroine to read about. I especially love Jamal and Anderson. Bottom line is... more story please.
If you enjoy the mythology of the Mythos Academy or Dark-Hunters you love the Nikki Glass series.
Score: 4 Stars
