Synopsis


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. . . .

My Thoughts:

Okay let me get the bad out of the way so I can get to the good. The bad is really simple, I received this book Saturday evening after work, leaving me 2 days to read the book. Now I can read fairly fast, but add it to my normal life activities and there is no way I am finishing a book this quickly. It would have been nice to have a few more days at least to read. Needless to say I am not done yet.

On to the good. I have read about half of the book and from what I have read, I am loving it! Now I have no clue where things are going yet, but I am finding the characters are interesting and complex so far. It seems as Greek Gods and Goddesses are the new vampire, angels, etc. and that is fine by me. I have always love reading about them and this just adds to my liking.

I think I have read enough at this point to honestly say, I will enjoy this book and will have no problem getting it finished up in a few days.
