Waiting on Wednesday: Dark Descendant by Jenna Black

>>Wednesday, March 9, 2011

Welcome back to another installment of Waiting on Wednesday,  hosted by Breaking the Spine. I like the sound of this one because of the references to Greek mythology - but it can either turn out really awesome or really cheesy. I'm hoping for really awesome.

Title: Dark Descendant
Author: Jenna Black
Publication Date: April 26, 2011

From Goodreads:

From the acclaimed author of the Morgan Kingsley, Exorcist books comes the gripping first novel in a new series about a private eye who discovers, to her surprise, that she’s an immortal huntress.

Nikki Glass can track down any man. But when her latest client turns out to be a true descendant of Hades, Nikki now discovers she can’t die. . . . Crazy as it sounds, Nikki’s manhunting skills are literally god-given. She’s a living, breathing descendant of Artemis who has stepped right into a trap set by the children of the gods. Nikki’s new “friends” include a descendant of Eros, who uses sex as a weapon; a descendant of Loki, whose tricks are no laughing matter; and a half-mad descendant of Kali who thinks she’s a spy. But most powerful of all are the Olympians, a rival clan of immortals seeking to destroy all Descendants who refuse to bow down to them. In the eternal battle of good god/bad god, Nikki would make a divine weapon. But if they think she’ll surrender without a fight, the gods must be crazy. . . .

  2. I haven't heard of this one before but the cover is really striking (love that vibrant blue!) and Greek myth retellings seem to be popular right now. Thanks for the head's-up!
