Rogue Descendant by Jenna Black
Nikki Glass, descendant of Artemis the Huntress, is all for justice, but she draws the line at cold-blooded murder. Too bad she works for Anderson Kane, a god in disguise who just happens to be the son of a Fury. He wants Konstantin, the deposed leader of the Olympians, dead, and he needs Nikki’s help to hunt his nemesis down. Saying no to a god might be bad for her health, but Nikki is no pushover . . . until Konstantin claims responsibility for a fire that destroys her parents’ home. Nikki would do anything to protect her family, and now she sets off on the deadliest of hunts, knowing that a single false step could trigger a war between Anderson and the Olympians—a war Anderson cannot hope to win. But is it possible she has another enemy? Maybe even one in her own house? As the mysteries deepen and the suspects mount, Nikki must try to put the pieces together and catch the real culprit before innocent people get caught in the cross fire.
Following the events in the last novel, the Olympians have gone through a change in leadership. But Konstantin is still around and causing trouble. Nikki suffers from some personal tragedies, but is unsure who the actual culprit is. Nikki’s relationship with Jamaal evolves in this latest installment. They have a great chemistry. Meanwhile, several people seem to think Anderson supposedly feels something for Nikki, but we aren’t really shown evidence of it yet.
This third installment in the Nikki Glass series, packed with fast-paced adventure and excitement. This is a fantastic urban fantasy series that has delivered plenty of mystery, suspense, and a bit of romance in each thrilling installment. This world of demigods with various powers has plenty of solid characters with endless stories to tell. This series does need to be read in order, as the plots build upon each other. And the surprising ending left me eager to know what the author has in store next for these intriguing characters.
