Waiting on Wednesday

Gameboard of the Gods by Richelle Mead was a happy discovery I made while surfing Amazon. I am a HUGE fan of Mead’s Vampire Academy series and her spin off Bloodline series, so when I noticed this was a new series, I felt like doing a little dance that probably would’ve embarrassed me and everyone within viewing of said dance. I’m STOKED. I’m also excited because I don’t think this is YA since it’s being published by Dutton Adult, so I’m curious what that’ll result in for the series.
In a futuristic world nearly destroyed by religious extremists, Justin March lives in exile after failing in his job as an investigator of religious groups and supernatural claims. But Justin is given a second chance when Mae Koskinen comes to bring him back to the Republic of United North America (RUNA). Raised in an aristocratic caste, Mae is now a member of the military’s most elite and terrifying tier, a soldier with enhanced reflexes and skills.
When Justin and Mae are assigned to work together to solve a string of ritualistic murders, they soon realize that their discoveries have exposed them to terrible danger. As their investigation races forward, unknown enemies and powers greater than they can imagine are gathering in the shadows, ready to reclaim the world in which humans are merely game pieces on their board.
Gameboard of the Gods, the first installment of Richelle Mead’s Age of X series, will have all the elements that have made her YA Vampire Academy and Bloodlines series such megasuccesses: sexy, irresistible characters; romantic and mythological intrigue; and relentless action and suspense.
Coming out on June 4, 2013 by Dutton Adult
