For Immortal Huntress and cunning private investigator Nikki Glass, vengeance trumps all in the final novel in acclaimed author Jenna Black's addictive urban fantasy series!
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?

Divine Descendant is apparently the final installment in author Jenna Black's Nikki Glass series. Things have been rather curious for Private Investigator Nikki Glass over the past three months. She found out that she was a Descendant of Artemis, the supposed goddess of the hunt, chastity, virginity, the moon, and the natural environment. Now, apparently immortal, she's a member of Anderson Kane's Liberi group which is heavily outmatched in numbers by the Olympians, lead by Cyrus Galanos, son of Konstantin who offered Nikki no amount of trouble and heartache.
Even though Cyrus is the supposed enemy, she finds that perhaps they have common ground, especially when fertility goddesses fail to do their jobs, and Kane's ex-wife Niobe shows up with vengeance on her mind. The fact that Nikki isn't all that happy with what happened in Rogue Descendant, and Kane's very public revelation of who he really is, and then his abrupt disappearance, makes for an interesting temporary...
I had read somewhere that this book was to be the last in the series. The ending however has left it open for another book to follow. I'm curious to see what comes next if so. This isn't my favorite of the series though I still liked it. The tension between Nikki and Jamal seemed to be resolved so quick it felt like I might've missed something in their relationship revolution or something. I kinda missed that tension that bounced between them. I am *really* glad that there was no love triangle after the hints in previous books. Anderson ... is just creepy and at times seems like a father figure. Well, he was until this book. In taking his heritage into account he acted, in both the past and present, like a son of a fury would. That doesn't mean his reactions weren't horrible or bad, just that they fit his nature exactly. The lore behind the sisters and the altars they tended was an interesting concept. Black did a good jod when she created her characters. They all...
This one was just about the budding relationship between Nikki and Jamal, the rest of the story just revolves around that. I became annoyed with Nikki and her self righteousness, and thinking she was the liberi moral compass. Her "powers" are essentially useless in this one. And of course she gets rewarded with the offer to run the house after living there for what is described in the book as several months. Hope the next one is better.
