This week I am excited for...
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.This cover was just released a couple days ago, and I cannot wait to have it displayed on my shelf! The colours and simplicity are gorgeous. And Mae sounds completely badass, which is my number one criteria in a book. I'm also really curious about this title, and what it means.
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. (From Goodreads)
Richelle Mead is one of my favourite authors, so I'm insanely excited to check out her new series. Unfortunately, we have a bit to wait still on this one. Gameboard of the Gods hits shelves June 4th, 2013.
What are you waiting on this week?
Much love, Samantha
