Divine Descendant - Jenna Black

What happens when fertility goddesses go on strike? Nothing much—except maybe the end of the human race.

When private investigator Nikki Glass became immortal as a descendant of Artemis, she never dreamed she’d find herself playing marriage counselor to the gods. But she doesn’t really have much of a choice when the crazed ex-wife of Anderson Kane—a god in disguise who just happens to be the son of a Fury—decides to enact revenge by wiping out all of humanity. Somehow, Nikki must convince the two to kiss and make up, but with Anderson now gone AWOL, she'll have to find him first. To top it all off, the cat’s out of the bag that Anderson killed Konstantin, the Olympians’ deposed leader. Now their new boss—Konstantin’s son—is out for blood.

With every mere mortal’s fate now resting in Nikki’s hands, can she outsmart the gods…or will she be doomed to spend the rest of eternity in a barren and desolate world? 

My thoughts:
Still reading the omnibus  and now I see that this one was ebook only. That would so have annoyed me if I had read the books in paper. I would just not have bought it, since I can't. But I had the omnibus, via la omnibus.

I guess that is why the series ended also when it went ebook only. Cos it did speed up in this one. She needed an ending and yes it was a decent enough ending, but it also left space so there could be more. And I am sad that there wont be more. The books just felt so light and nice, much thanks to the omnibus since well you should see it. No dead space.

In this one we learn a secret about Anderson. And fine I take back what I said in the last book when I said she should fancy him instead. Yeah, maybe not. Jamal has issues but they are a good fit and getting closer again.

And there are angry fertility goddesses around. And those pesky Olympians. She is the one to stop them.

A good ending to this series. It worked buying the omnibus so I am glad for that, I did have book 1, but it was cheaper getting this one than the rest so I took a chance and it paid off.

Conclusion:
I read them really fast.

  3. I read Jenna Black's YA fairy series so many years ago now! I haven't read anything by her since. Sorry to hear the ending was sort of rushed. The premise sounds fun. I'm confused as to which guy is the love interest, though. I'll check it out. :)

  8. I like the premise, it sounds like a cool idea. A fertility goddess going on strike...that's definitely a different take on the causes for the end of the human race :)

  10. Not sure how I missed that you were reading this series. Yes, this was ebook only. The publisher cut the series, but she couldn't leave the series with how the previous book ended, so she wrote this one and was going to self publish it. They decided they wanted to keep the rights, but only publish in ebook. I would love it if she kept writing in this world, but I don't think that will happen.
