The #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Vampire Academy and Bloodline series returns with the second installment in her acclaimed Age of X series. Gameboard of the Gods introduced religious investigator Justin March and Mae Koskinen, the beautiful supersoldier assigned to protect him.

Their mission takes a new twist when they are assigned to a diplomatic delegation headed by Lucian Darling, Justin's old friend and rival, going into Arcadia, the RUNA's dangerous neighboring country.

Meanwhile, Mae--grudgingly posing as Justin's concubine--has a secret mission of her own: finding the illegitimate niece her family smuggled away years ago. But with Justin and Mae resisting the resurgence of the gods in Arcadia, a reporter's connection with someone close to Justin back home threatens to expose their mission--and with it the divine forces the government is determined to keep more

Review Text

PRAISE FOR RICHELLE MEAD AND GAMEBOARD OF THE GODS "After years of YA, the author has finally returned to her adult roots with an ambitious (and sexy!) sci-fi outing." - "This brilliant book is a miracle. Think American Gods with the romantic heart of Vampire Academy . What's the point of world-building if you aren't building something and someone to love? I'm in love with every character in this book. How do I know? When I got to the last page I turned to the first and started again, thinking this is why I read ." -Margaret Stohl, New York Times bestselling author of Icons "Vivid world-building, whip-fast pacing, and a layered plot combine to make Gameboard of the Gods a riveting read!" - Melissa Marr, New York Times bestselling author of The Arrivals "The book is fast paced and suspenseful...A promising first book in a projected series." - Booklist "Provocative and dark- Gameboard of the Gods is epic in scale and impossible to put down." - Kami Garcia, New York Times bestselling coauthor of the Beautiful Creatures novels & author of Unbreakable "Why you should read it: ....It's dark, it's fantastical, and the chemistry is just wow!" - Happy Ever Aftershow more
