This June, you can throw most of what you knew about Richelle Mead—aside from her immeasurable skill—out the window when she introduces the first novel in her adult Age of X series: GAMEBOARD OF THE GODS. This imaginative and action-packed adventure set in a near-future dystopian world, showcases Mead’s unrivaled talent for engaging storytelling and compelling characters. RT Book Reviews raves, “Mead is a master storyteller,” and Booklist calls it “fast paced and suspenseful,” calling her leading man, Justin, “a very well-designed character.”
GAMEBOARD OF THE GODS takes place in a world re-built after a virus wiped out half of the globe’s population, now governed by strict rules that deny all existence of religion. Justin March, a former investigator of extremists, is suddenly called back to the job by his former employer. Along with the beautiful and dangerous Mae Koskinen, he is charged with the task of solving a string of ritualistic murders. As the investigation unfolds, mysterious and unearthly beings begin to assemble in the shadows, preparing to reclaim a world where humans are just pawns.
