Publisher's 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 really 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 backward may be "god", but that won't stop Nikki from teaching these old gods some new tricks. Like playing dead.

    "LOVED IT!"

    Loved It!

    The second book is is as good as the first. This one gets deeper into the characters pasts and their specific powers. Nikki is a Private Investigator. She is smart, headstrong and daring. She also has a good heart. She has the power of the hunt and learns that she can find people in an unusual way. She is also very good with all weapons.

    I also love Anderson's and Jamal's characters. Very cool powers!

    The narrator does very wonderful job with all the character's voices. Her voice is clear and is easy to listen to.

    This is such a good series! I can't wait for the 3rd book!!

    "Great Second Book"

    I was very please with this book. The author has continues the story she started in the first book and there is not drop off as there are so many times with an authors second book. Ms. Black continues with another great story line and plenty of twists to keep you interested and Ms. Eastlake continues to do a great job of narrating. I eagerly await the next in this series. I have made this series one of my top 3 to keep an eye out for the next book in the series.

    "Decent"

    Yeah, pretty good follow up. Not quite as strong as the first, but still good. I get a little annoyed when we have to listen to too much whiny internal turmoil that is OBVIOUS to the reader how it will turn out. I can't say too much about it because it's at the end of the book. But I found myself doing a LOT of eye rolls at her inner dialogue, choices and hopes that someone will save her. It was just weird. That aside, I enjoyed the book, plot and characters and will give the next book a chance.

    "A Refreshing Urban Fantasy Novel"
    Any additional comments?

    Unlike most other novels and series in this genre, Jenna Black's series about Nikki Glass is a breath of fresh air. There is no romance at all in the first book, and the romance in Deadly Descendant, the second installment, is developing at a snail's pace. For some reason, this makes me all the more eager to find out where things go in book three. The concept of the series also veers away from the genre's status quo. Descendants of gods, who can steal immortality from other descendants by killing them, leaves Black's main characters teetering between good and evil. And by creating characters that inherited diluted powers of mythological gods (I think she's only included Greek and Norse gods so far) she's given herself a treasure trove of inspiration that I hope will continue in the next book, because it's done her well so far. I definitely recommend.

    "Deadly Descendant"

    Definitely a good book. We get to learn more about Emma, and the side effects of her prolonged captivity, as well as more about Nikki's powers and her self destructive childhood. I'm looking for the next book in this series.

    In my opinion, a good story evokes emotion. It'll make me laugh, angry, or cry. But it can't just be words on a page. It has to do something
