Title: Rogue Descendant
Series: Nikki Glass, #3
Author: Jenna Black
Rating: 4 Shooting Stars

The third novel in an action-packed urban fantasy series from the acclaimed author of the Morgan Kingsley, Exorcist books—starring a female private eye who discovers that she’s an immortal huntress. 

 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…

Rogue Descendant (Nikki Glass, #3)

As the third book in this series begins we see Nikki is trying to get her relationship with Jamaal back to something that resembles friendship.. She wants more but it's looking like things aren't going her way. Not only that but Anderson's ex-wife is giving Nikki all kinds of problems. Then there is the fact that she has to deal with some fire bug setting fire to the places she once called home, and killing a few innocents along the way. Then there is Jamaal's tiger who wants a piece of her as well. So Nikki has a whole lot of craziness going on along with trying not to let the guilt eat at her. 

 I really liked this one. I thought it was a whole lot better than the second book. Now I'm kind of wanting Nikki to have a major love interest.. But I see that there could be a few twist and turns when it comes to that. Not only that but the ending of this book just leaves us in major suspense... OMG I couldn't believe it just ended like that. Now I'm super excited for the next book!! I can not wait! This book was really good. The writing was awesome, and I loved all of the characters. I just wish that there was a tad bit more of romance going on but I get why there isn't. Still I will be excited when Nikki finally gets with someone!
