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. . . .

what a boring protagonist. Not particularly bright, and lets everyone walk all over her. Couldn't get through the book - waste of time.

A nice book for a quiet day. It seemed like the author tried to do too many things in this book, and some work better than others, and since the characters actions were so extreme, and so much has been revealed, it left me wondering there's going to be worse evil doers than in this novel?

Supernatural action. And even some drama.

I like this new series more than the one about the demons, but less than the one with the vampires. Anyway, Jenna Black is worth reading IMO.
