Deadly Descendant by Jenna Black

Nikki Glass is a former private eye who suddenly became a Liberi, a quasi-immortal.  Her change to more than human has required more sacrifices than she expected.   He acclimation to the side she has chosen in a millennium long conflict and her conflicted emotions about being part of a team are the focus of this second book in a very good series.

I mentioned in my review of Dark Descendant, Niki is a likeable character.   She is not some invulnerable super hero, she is a volatile, insecure semi-normal person you might know.   She deals with her changed life with frustration and fear.

As in Dark Descendant, 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.  This is the second of Ms. Black’s work I have read and I am looking forward to reading the next in this series.  Warning, it may have a little too much romanticism if you are a flannel shirt, insecure manly man.    I, of course, am typing this while holding my bowie knife in my teeth, a loaded Judge on my side and kneeling on the throat of a thrashing swamp gator, I ain’t intimidated by any romantic stuff. 

I recommend it.

This book may have been received free of charge from a publisher or a publicist. That will NEVER have a bearing on my recommendations.
