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. . . .
"Jenna Black deftly weaves Greek myth into the modern-day world, creating a dark, gritty tale that will leave you breathless and immediately wanting more. DARK DESCENDANT has all the pace, energy, and intensity of a lightning bolt thrown from the hand of Zeus himself! I loved every minute of it." —Kelly Gay, award-winning author of The Better Part of Darkness
"A marvelously dense, utterly unique world, driven and well-defined characters, lots of action, and just plain fun. Jenna Black never disappoints!" —Lilith Saintcrow, New York Times bestselling author
