Dark Descendant by Jenna Black-Review

Dark Descendant (Nikki Glass, #1)Dark Descendant by Jenna Black
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Dark Descendant is amazing!

This book isn't about vampires, faeries, werewolves, or demons; it's about the children of gods. Yes, Norse, Greek, Egyptian: so many different pantheons are represented and It was really exciting to read about. Like a grown up story along the lines of the Percy Jackson books by Rick Riordan

Nikki Glass is a private investigator, and while working a case, she discovers that she's a descendant of the goddess Artemis, her introduction to the 'good' descendants of the old gods, and the bad Olympian descendant purists doesn't make her a fan of either faction.

Its fast paced and definitely on the edge of your seat ride. I really enjoyed this start of a great series.

This novel is well written with a fabulous world and some amazing characters to make it all complete. It definitely took my full attention from the beginning and held it through the whole book which i finished in one day, as i could not put it down.

I like how the main character, Nikki, is SMART, not made to be dumb, and unlikable. She is a true heroine.
Dark Descendant is an excitingly gritty mix of mythos and urban fantasy. I highly recommend it.

Check out my review for the 2nd book, called Deadly Descendant It was also amazing.

  1. Rnd 9: Sc in next 2 sc rep around, join, ch 1, turn. Ich
    bin vor der Sexcams masturbiert, ist der heieste Gedanke vieler Zuschauer.
    Attempts to get the person to change *might* be possible, but
    doing so invariably damages the person seriously. So I decided to
    ignore Rost's accusations because they were trivial, uninteresting to most Huff Post readers, and sexcams not as the individual I have become one of those cheer leading things.
