Deadly Descendant takes on the same easy pace as its predecessor, Dark Descendant, but with more heat, action, and emotion! Jenna Black gives readers a greater look into some of Nikki's Liberi housemates, especially, Jamaal. Jamaal is a very out of control character and completely mysterious in the first book, so it's intriguing to see him slightly open up and drop his guard around Nikki.

The assignment Nikki is handed in Deadly Descendant is creepy and just a little shy of downright scary! The crazy descendant of the death-god Anubis is on the hunt and armed with powers unfamiliar, and very harmful, to Nikki and some of the Liberi. The plot leads readers to believe that Nikki might not be able to succeed this time because there is more than one foe working against her. Anderson's traumatized wife is letting her claws show, but this unexpected twist is entertaining and adds to the overall build of suspension. The novel's conclusion is clever, leaving readers excited, awed, and aching for more action.

Black has written the perfect sequel to Dark Descendant and its only a matter of time before she impresses urban fantasy fans with the next Nikki Glass installment.

Nikki--really???

I really do like the series. However it is very difficult to like Nikki. Her personality is not consistent. She describes herself as very empathetic but drives away any one who tries to get close to her by being hateful. You start to think she is getting better but then...
I really do like the series. However it is very difficult to like Nikki. Her personality is not consistent. She describes herself as very empathetic but drives away any one who tries to get close to her by being hateful. You start to think she is getting better but then she is witchy to those trying to be her friend. I realize this is only the second book in the series but you would think by now she should show some progress. I am halfway through this book and I hope to see a more likeable Nikki by the end. I really do like this series--it has great plot lines, good action and suspense. Emma is another character I am having problems with--I hope a "resolution" to her character comes quickly, too as I can see really no reason why she contributes much to the story other than to tic people off and there are already plenty of those characters in story to fill that need. I truly want to continue reading this series as I so enjoyed her other series before. However it is difficult to continue when I really don't like the main character and one of the other main characters is bipolar and worthless. If not for these problems I would give the book 5+ stars.
