Coming Attractions: Gameboard of the Gods

I'm sure there are a number of you out there who adore Richelle Mead and will buy whatever she writes without even really having to know what it's about. (I'm also sure there are others of you who think you never want to read Richelle Mead again, because such is the nature of a successful series.)

But this one sounds quite a bit different from her Vampire Academy/Bloodlines world, plot-wise (though the synopsis is quick to point out that it has all the things that made those series such "megasuccesses"), but frankly, all I needed to see was "religious extremists" and my curiousity was piqued.

Gameboard of the Gods by Richelle Mead
464 pages
Expected publication: June 4th 2013 by Dutton Adult
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.
