Waiting on Wednesdays #2

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

                              This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:
Gameboard of the Gods by Richelle Mead
Blurb from Goodreads:
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.
Mehh, I'm not much for sci-fi but since Richelle Mead is one of my favorite authors I'm pretty excited. You guys probably already heard of this one so it might of have been a cliche answer. I loved her previous adult series both her Georgina Kincaid and her Dark Swan series. What book are you waiting on? Leave me a link down below and I'll be sure to check it out.           



  1. Very interesting premise. Though, just once, I'd love to see a dystopian future that came about because of the radicalism of the environmental extremists- just for the irony of it all. I kid I kid. This sounds really good and definitely one for the list. Thanks for stopping by!

  2. Great WOW pick! I love Richelle Mead <3 Her Vampire Academy Series and Bloodlines Series are among my favorite reads! I even read part of her Georgia Kincaid Series. I'm not really into sic-fi either, but I'll buy and read anything written by Richelle Mead because she is one of my favorite authors!
