Rogue Descendant - Jenna Black

No longer the leader of the Olympians, Konstantin has now gone into hiding. Konstantin is vulnerable, and Anderson believes now is the perfect time to destroy his nemesis. He orders private eye Nikki Glass to use her powers to locate Konstantin, and she balks at the idea until a series of attacks leads her to believe that Konstantin is gunning for her and Anderson instead of remaining safely in hiding.

Nikki’s search is complicated by Cyrus—Konstantin’s son and the new leader of the Olympians—who threatens retribution should his father be killed. The complications mount up as Nikki begins to suspect that Konstantin might not be behind the attacks after all. The only person who hates Konstantin more than Anderson does is Anderson’s estranged wife, Emma, who has joined the Olympians. And Nikki knows Emma would be more than happy if Anderson and his people embroil themselves in an all-out war against the Olympians—a war they cannot hope to win.

As Nikki tries to figure out who the true enemy is, she deals with her tumultuous relationship with Jamaal, who struggles to control his death magic. But being loved by a descendant of a death goddess is the least of Nikki’s worries… 

My thoughts:
What I like about this omnibus is the lack of dead space, sure it does not actually give you a lot of time to breath, but I just read it faster!  So if you want to buy this series then go for the omnibus ;)

In this one someone is after Nikki. And on top of that Anderson wants to her to hunt down Konstantin. Sure girl, I get that you do not want to hunt someone for revenge, instead hunt someone who hurts people. But he hurts people! He kills people! F the revenge angle, hunt him cos he is scum!

She is also dealing with Jamal, their rocky friendship that they finally started to build in book 2 has fallen apart again. Personally, who needs friends, she should hook up with Anderson ;) But then he is scary so.... But then Jamal is scary too, but she fancies him

There is the mystery aspect of who is after her. Her dealing with her new housemates. And then there are those evil Olympians to worry about too.

It's a good series. Light, fast and I have enjoyed reading 2 in a row now ;)

  12. I now know how I missed that you were reviewing this series. I've sucked at commenting lately. Just not enough time in the day. Glad you're enjoying this series. I love Jamal to pieces.
