Waiting on: Gameboard of the Gods by Richelle Mead

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.

It's a given that anything by Richelle Mead is an auto-read for me. I've read her Georgina Kincaid adult series and, while VERY steamy, it is also excellent storytelling. I'm excited to see Richelle branch out from the paranormal romance genre!

Gameboard of the Gods will be published June 4, 2012 by Dutton Adult


  1. Ah! I remember Richelle talking briefly about this new series when I saw her here last year. This woman amazes me by how much she writes. How does she keep all these different stories separate?! lol

  2. This sounds like it's going to be an amazing read! It sounds really different to books that I've read in the past, which makes me excited! I'm definitely adding this one to my tbr pile. Thanks for the introduction!

  3. I used this one for a WOW a few weeks ago -- all it took was "In a futuristic world nearly destroyed by religious extremists..." for me to want to read it! This will be my first by this author though & I'm really looking forward to it:)

  4. I'm embarrassed to say that I haven't read her other books.. but despite that, I am super psyched for this book!!! It sounds awesome. :)

  5. I wasn't much interested in her vampire series but this adult one looks really intriguing-can't wait to check it out!

  6. I love Richelle Mead, even when she frustrates me! New adult series? I am so there. :)

  9. I am definitely excited to read the next book in this series, and I am a little sad that I have to wait until next year. I hope that any readers who have not yet had the pleasure of reading this new series from Richelle Mead give it a chance with an open mind and enjoy it as much as I did.
