An original eNovella in the acclaimed Nikki Glass urban fantasy series, taking place between the events of the novels Deadly Descendant and Rogue Descendant.As a living descendant of Artemis the Huntress, private investigator Nikki Glass knows how to track someone down—but this time, her latest case leads to unexpected revelations of lies and betrayal…
PROS AND CONS was a nice refresher to the Nikki Glass series and its immortal descendants of various gods. This novella is not too friendly to those who are completely new to this series as there is some backstory and history with various characters that is not explained. I have yet to read the second book, DEADLY DESCENDANT, so I was lost on the supposed drama that happened in the previous book.
While I was shaking off the cobwebs of memory in regards to the worldbuilding, I rediscovered how resourceful and persistent Nikki Glass is as an investigator. She relied on her Artemis inspired powers and tenacity to expertly crack the near unsolvable case presented in PROS AND CONS.
Helping Nikki is Joey, a descendant of Loki, the Norse trickster god. While I thought he was hilarious, he was a thorn in Nikki’s side as his much needed assistance involved so many other problems for her. I hope Joey features more prominently in the next book as his crazy off the wall personality plays off Nikki’s ‘straight man’ persona so well.
PROS AND CONS was a nice self-contained story that was a wonderful reminder of a series I inadvertently stopped reading. I’ll be catching up by reading DEADLY DESCENDANT as I wait for the next Nikki Glass novel, ROGUE DESCENDANT, coming out April 30th 2013.
