Waiting on Wednesday: Gameboard of the Gods by Richelle Mead

January 8th, 2013 by Debbie's World of Books

Waiting on Wednesday

“Waiting On Wednesday” is a weekly event, hosted by Jill from Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

My pick for this week is Gameboard of the Gods by Richelle Mead out June 2013.  I love her Vampire Academy series and this one looks interesting.

Gameboard of the Gods by Richelle Mead

Summary from Goodreads.com: n 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.

    I really enjoyed her Vampire Academy series but I’m super excited that she’s doing another adult series. I still need to read her other ones though! :) Great pick.

    I like the sound of this series; I’m not too into vampire books so I avoided her other series but this concept looks more to my taste.
