Waiting on Wednesday: Dark Descendant

Waiting on Wednesday is a Weekly Meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine

Book: Dark Descendant (Descendants #1) by Jenna Black
Release Date: April 26th, 2011
Publisher: Pocket
Genre: Urban Fantasy
Description from Goodreads: A brand-new urban fantasy from the acclaimed author of the Morgan Kingsley series!
Nikki Glass thinks of herself as an ordinary person, although her skills as a private investigator sometimes verge on the uncanny. But whatever Nikki might think of herself, she is far from ordinary, as she discovers one life-altering night when she loses control of her car on an icy road, accidentally killing a man who appears out of nowhere. The man Nikki struck with her car was an immortal who wanted to die—and she has now inadvertently stolen his immortality. As a descendant of the Greek goddess Artemis, Nikki’s talents have reached supernatural proportions. Of course, before she was an immortal, there wasn’t anyone who wanted her dead….
This one sounds like a blast! I love a good, creative Urban Fantasy - so Dark Descendant sounds like it would be right up my alley. I am loving the Greek Mythology thrown in there too. The only other Jenna Black book I've read is Glimmerglass, which is a YA book, but I loved it. I am sure I will enjoy Dark Descendant too :)

The Storm Before Atlanta
By Karen Schwabach
Publication date: December 28, 2010

At a time when most people have grown weary of the war between the states, two young children are desperate to find their way to the battlefields. Jeremy DeGroot wants nothing more than to join a troop as a drummer boy. For Dulcie, a runaway slave, freedom means she must head directly toward the fighting in the hopes that she'll become "contraband," that is, property of the Union troops. Both Jeremy and Dulcie find a place with the 107th New York Volunteer Regiment and even start to forge a friendship. But all that is threatened when they keep crossing paths with the mysterious Charlie, a young Confederate soldier, who may look like the enemy but feels more like a friend.

That sounds great. I love stories that have a tie to Greek mythology!
