Dark Descendant by Jenna Black

Nikki Glass is a private eye who suddenly becomes much more than human.  Her transitional experience is traumatic to say the least.   Caught in a battle between supra-normals she needs to choose a side to survive.

I liked the characterizations the Ms. Black portrays.  She is able to imbue her characters with a sense of normalcy.   Nikki Glass could be someone you know.   The premise of demi-gods was far-fetched and yet still entertaining.   They exhibited personalities that were both true to their historic roots and yet modern in their behavior.  

There is plenty of action and emotion with just a hint of sensuality.   This provides a touch of romanticism that doesn’t deter from a good urban fantasy.   I haven’t read any of Ms. Black’s work before but I am looking forward to reading the next in this series. 

I recommend it.
