This book very good!! There's a lot of action fight scenes and a little bit of romance. The story is very original and ALL the characters are intere..Show More »sting. The female lead is strong and has a funny since of humor. I didn't think I would like it, but I couldn't stop listening.
The narrator has a clear speaking voice. She does a great job with both the male and female characters. I thought I knew the answer to the mystery but was wrong, so it will definately keep your interest. All the characters have different powers and different strengths. I can't say enough! It's definately worth listening to. I can't wait for the 2nd book to come out. I'm adding Jenna Black to my favorite authors list. :)
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..Show More » 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!!
If you’ve never read/listened to this series, I highly recommend you give it a try. Nikki is the descendant of a god, Artemis to be exact. Artemis is..Show More » a moon goddess who can’t miss what she is aiming at and is an excellent tracker. She is born mortal, but if she kills an immortal descendant, their immortality will pass to her. One such immortal, known as Liberi, commits suicide by jumping in front on Nikki’s car. This kills him and give Nikki his immortality There are two groups of Liberi that we see throughout the series. Anderson’s group, which consists of both Greek god descendants and descendants of other gods like Kali and Loki. There is also the Olympians, which consists only of greek gods. Their goal is to rid the world of Liberi from the other gods. Anderson’s group has many more morals than the Olympians, which have next to none. Nikki is forced to join up with Anderson and his team. This will give you some background on the series.
In this book, Nikki is being tormented by either Konstantin, the former leader of the Olympians, or Emma, Anderson’s estranged wife who has joined the Olympians. The confessions of the torment claim to be Konstantin but don’t appear to be his style. There is a lot of evidence that points to Emma as the culprit. Emma is convinced that Nikki is after her husband, which is not the case. We watch as Nikki works to uncover who is burning any building that is related to her. She is kidnapped and “killed”, she gives the EMTs quite a scare when she returns from the dead. We see more interactions with Cyrus, Konstantin’s son and the current leader of the Olympians. Nikki is also having complications of jealousy from Sita, a phantom tiger that belongs to Jammal, who Nikki is interested in.
I love this series and the characters. The world is extremely interesting in it’s simplicity and the layers that are uncovered the more we learn. There is some romance, but it is barely blooming and in this book in particular, we see Nikki might be moving towards a love triangle with Anderson and Jaamal.
While this book is action packed, it still seems like a bridge to me for a bigger storyline to come. There is a pretty large cliffhanger at the end of this book that helps me to believe in the “bridge” aspect of this book as well.
I’m sure many of you know Sophie Eastlake, the narrator. She also does the most recent Chicagoland Vampires and all of the Elder Races series. She is a little bit flat in her narration when compared to some, but it works really well with the calm and collected Nikki Glass.
If you’ve haven’t tried this series, I think you should really give it a shot. The first book is a little slow because there is a ton of character and world building, but book two is wonderful and this book is helping to build to something big coming in book four, I think.
