Waiting on Wednesday: Gameboard of the Gods by Richelle Mead

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event that is hosted by Jill at 
Breaking the Spine and spotlights upcoming releases that we're 
eagerly anticipating.

Need it:

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.

Expected Release: June 4, 2012
Published by: Dutton Adult
Harcover: 464 pages

Why I am Waiting

  1.  I LOVE Richelle Mead! I have yet to be let down by anything of hers that I pick up! 
  2. The characters sound interesting.  Plus there is the inevitable starined romance in there you just know it! 
  3. As always the cover holds appeal.  I seem to be attracted to the wispy smoke like things one covers...

Well that's what I am waiting on this week.  What do you think?
Like it? Loath it?  Let me know!  Oh and make sure you link
