An ancient evil is unleashed in the modern world— unless one fearless P.I. can hunt it down. . . . Nikki Glass, Immortal Huntress, returns in this new novel in the acclaimed series by Jenna Black. As a living descendant of Artemis the Huntress, private investigator Nikki Glass knows how to track someone down. But when an Oracle shows up, warning the Descendants about wild dog attacks in Washington, D.C., Nikki is afraid it might be a trap. The Olympians believe the “dogs” are really jackals, controlled by a blood-crazed descendant of the Egyptian death-god Anubis. Whatever. . . . If Nikki hopes to muzzle Dogboy, she’s got to catch him in the act. But when she stakes out a local cemetery, she ends up face-to-snout with a snarling pack of shadow-jackals whose bite is worse than their bark. These hellhounds are deadly—even for an immortal like Nikki. “Dog” spelled backward may be “god,” but that won’t stop Nikki from teaching these old gods some new tricks. Like playing dead.

Nikki needs to stop with this talk of not caring about her adoptive parents and sister. She's all like I do love them but at the same time I'm not a real part of their family. This makes me rage so bad. They adopted your sorry ass even though you were horrible.
Kick-assery at its finest!

Though this installment was not a disappointed per se, I did enjoy this less than the first one. Though this UF is different others in that it uses more unique mythology, I still find it's relatively formulaic and does not include as much world-building and mythology as I would like. Still, it was a...
