Waiting on Gameboard of the Gods


Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly post hosted by Breaking the Spine.

A couple of weeks ago my sister-n-law featured this book.  I don't know how I had not heard of it yet but I knew I had to feature it at some point on WoW since I am a big Richelle Mead fan, specifically her Vampire Academy series and Bloodlines series.

My pick for this week is:


Gameboard of the Gods
By: Richelle Mead
Publication Date: June 4, 2013 by Dutton Adult
464 pages
Summary:
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.

Ooh, goosebumps!  I can't wait!!

  2. I loved Richelle Mead's Vampire Academy series but didn't have the best of luck with with Bloodlines so I'm a little hesitant about this one too. However, I LOVE the premise for this book and definitely look forward to giving it a try. The cover is amazing too!

    Great pick, Holly. Thanks for stopping by and following. :)

    1. Bloodlines book 1 was not as good, IMO, as book 2. Press on! They get better.

      Thanks for the follow back!
