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.

“Anderson sent me to give you this he said. I believe the subtext was kiss and makeup. This time I was sure I made a face. "I rather kiss a copperhead." I grabbed the envelop from his hand.

He laughed and held up his hands in surrender. Don't worry. It was only a figure of speech.”

“There is no lock strong enough nor wall thick enough to keep Death out," he murmured, his lips close to my ear so that I could feel the puff of his breath against my skin. The ends of a couple of his braids had found their way under the collar of my flannel night-shirt and tickled the base of my neck.
"Are you speaking literally or metaphorically?”
