DEADLY DESCENDANT

Image of Deadly Descendant
Author(s): 

The second novel in the Nikki Glass series is a well-written story with exciting characters and a mythology unique to urban fantasy. Strong female protagonists are common in this genre, but Nikki is a different sort of character, and it’s interesting to see her grow as she learns to embrace her immortality and heredity as a living descendant of Artemis the Huntress. This is a series to follow.

P.I. Nikki Glass is no stranger to tracking down whatever she needs to. Her status as a descendent of Greek goddess Artemis gives her a leg up with blood-hungry hellhounds controlled by Egyptian death god Anubis. But when she comes face to face with these jackals and learns they are more dangerous than she anticipated, will these devil dogs prove they have more bite than bark? (POCKET, May, 368 pp., $7.99)
