Excellent Book!! Two thumbs up!!

This book very good!! There's a lot of action fight scenes and a little bit of romance. The story is very original and ALL the characters are interesting. The female lead is strong and has a funny since of humor. I didn't think I would like it, but I couldn't stop listening.

The narrator has a clear speaking voice. She does a great job with both the male and female characters. I thought I knew the answer to the mystery but was wrong, so it will definately keep your interest. All the characters have different powers and different strengths. I can't say enough! It's definately worth listening to. I can't wait for the 2nd book to come out. I'm adding Jenna Black to my favorite authors list. :)

Modern novels based on old mythology

I'm really impressed with the series. I've read a lot of paranormal, and the ideas here are very unique. A long, long time ago, before the ancient gods left the earth, they each bestowed immortality on one of their descendants. There's only a limited number of immortal slots available, and the only way to become immortal is to be a descendant of a god and to kill an immortal.

The story focuses on a newly immortal P.I. She didn't know anything about the immortals before she accidentally became one. She's witty and has a great sense of humor, is bold and daring with a lot of style. She has to learn to use some new powers and abilities that don't come with an instruction manual, navigate the politics of the immortal factions, figure out who's a friend and who's an enemy, solve a new case involving immortals, move, and deal with an adopted mortal sister who really wants to know whats going on.

Add three complicated men to the mix and well...it's a hit. No spoilers, but I loved books 2 and 3 and can't wait for the next one to come out.
