Deadly Descendant: Nikki Glass, Book 2 | [Jenna Black]

Deadly Descendant: Nikki Glass, Book 2

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.

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.

    "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.

    I believe a story should be interesting enough to absorb me, not bore me. I live reality daily. And many times reality is brutal. So I look for a book that makes me forget. It has to absorb me into the pages. Kind of like going on a mini vacation. I like stories that make me laugh. I like stories that make me look for the next episode.

    "Loved It, Performance Really Adds To The Story"
    Where does Deadly Descendant rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Very high.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Excellent follow-up to the first book. I loved the character development. Nikki doesn't really like her situation but is adapting and starting to build some real relationships with the others in the mansion. Anderson creeps me right the hell out but in the best possible way. He's one of the most interesting "good guys" that I've seen in this genre. Really, he's only good relative to the alternative. There are a few scenes in Deadly Descendant where we see more of the less-human side of him than we did in the first book and it adds some more depth to his character, yet he's human enough to like having Nikki around because he knows that he can trust her with his biggest secret and because she knows, he can be himself around her. It's not a romantic relationship but it's an interesting and complex one, particularly in the way that it affects Anderson's relationship with his own wife, and it is a large part of what will keep me reading this series.


    What about Sophie Eastlake’s performance did you like?

    She is very consistent with the character voices and they match the characters very well. I find that listening to a well-narrated audiobook like this one adds to the story. Having read the book, it's great to have character voices associated with it when I re-read it after listening to the audiobook.

    "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.

    "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.
