Waiting on Wednesday (21)

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

So it's been quite a while since I've done a WoW post, but I just had to do one this week and share with everyone a book that instantly spiked to the top of my wishlist the minute I heard about it. Haha. If you didn't know by now, Richelle Mead is perhaps my favorite author in recent years. I adore her. I'm already anticipating Indigo Spell (the 3rd Bloodlines book), but that's not what this post is about.

My WoW this week:

Gameboard of the Gods by Richelle Mead
Expected Release: June 2013
Adult, Fantasy, Sci-Fi, Dystopian
1st in a series
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.
I'm so excited for this new adult series from Ms. Mead! And that cover...LOVE!

  What's your WoW this week?



  1. i featured this on my WOW post excited for this book.

    MY WOW

    Le' Grande Codex

  2. I'm not familiar with this author at all. Thisbbooknsounds super exciting and different. Thanks for the introduction.

    1. Well, I hope that if you take a chance on Ms. Mead sometime, you enjoy her work as much as I do. :) Thanks for the visit! :)

  3. I'm excited about this one too! Richelle Mead + dystopia? Heck yes!

  4. Ohhhh I didn't know she was doing an adult dystopian series which I guess sounds more like a mystery set in a dystopian world. This sounds AWESOME! I loved TVA and I'm sure I will love BL when I start reading it... (It's in my literal TBR pile right now!). This sounds super interesting.


  5. Not to mention the absolute gorgeousness of it. That's the type of book I'd buy just for the cover alone. The fact that Richelle freaking Mead wrote it...well, that makes it a must-have.

    I'll be waiting on this one right along with ya, Pixie. Unless you get an ARC, in which case...I will hate you. -.-

    1. I'm not awesome enough to get Richelle Mead ARCs. *le sigh* I wish. Either way, buying on release day! You know me, I'll do it! :D

  6. Nice choice. Love the cover. I'm sure this will be worth waiting for. :-)
