Add to GoodreadsIn 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.
Do I really have to explain?? It's RICHELLE MEAD. The creator of one of my favourite ever series VA and Bloodlines. Of course I'll read this!!! I never read any of her adult stuff yet (I know, I really need to but there's a big pile of books staring at me wanting me to read them s0) but I'm really super duper excited for this!
This is unrelated to this book, but have you heard about the 4th Bloodlines book (The Fiery Heart) will be told in both Sydney AND Adrian's POV?? I DIE. Sydrian is one of my favourite couples ever and Adrian is at the top of my book boyfriends. So there! :D
I really don't get how someone as famous and amazing as Richelle Mead always ends up with crappy covers. I mean, seriously, did you see the VA/Bloodlines covers? It looks like the person who designed it was blind or something. Grrr. And I'm sorry to say to this cover looks fanmade or one for self-pub.
So, what are YOU waiting for this Wednesday? And like me, are you waiting for this book aswell? :)
