Dark Descendant - Book Review

    Dark Descendant

From the acclaimed author of the Morgan Kingsley, Exorcist books comes the gripping first novel in a new series about a private eye who discovers, to her surprise, that she's an immortal huntress.

     Nikki Glass can track down any man. But when her latest client turns out to be a true descendant of Hades, Nikki now discovers she can't die. . . . Crazy as it sounds, Nikki's manhunting skills are literally god-given.  

     She's a living, breathing descendant of Artemis who has stepped right into a trap set by the children of the gods. Nikki's new "friends" include a descendant of Eros, who uses sex as a weapon; a descendant of Loki, whose tricks are no laughing matter; and a half-mad descendant of Kali who thinks she's a spy. But most powerful of all are the Olympians, a rival clan of immortals seeking to destroy all Descendants who refuse to bow down to them. In the eternal battle of good god/bad god, Nikki would make a divine weapon. But if they think she'll surrender without a fight, the gods must be crazy. . . .

Mandie's Thoughts -  Mixing Greek Mythology in an Urban Fantasy setting is a new concept for me and is quite refreshing. Nikki is a strong female lead who does have a few hangups. She was adopted and feels pale in comparison to her perfect beautiful sister. 
     I really enjoyed Jenna Black's writing style, she didn't bog the reader down but gave the right amount of information. The would have liked to see a little romance blossoming at least, maybe in the next book. Which I am desperately waiting for now.
     The worst part of reviewing this is now I want to read all of Jenna Black's previous and future works. I adore urban fantasy and young adult and she writes both! She even has a freebie kindle book of Remedial Magic which I will be reading very soon along with her Glimmerglass (Faeriewalker, Book 1) series. It's great to find new authors!
