Gameboard of the Gods by Richelle Mead Chapter 1 Teaser!

Gameboard of the Gods (Age of X, #1)Hey again everyone! I was on Richelle Meads Facebook page today, and I saw she posted the first chapter of her next release: Gameboard of the Gods (clicky for Goodreads). I am really excited for this because I am a HUGE fan of Richelle Mead from her Vampire Academy and Dark Swan series's, and this is her venture into the dystopia genre. I'm don't know what her take on dystopia is going to be, but I know it will be flat-out amazing, as usual. 

Goodreads Synopsis: 

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.

Beware that this book and excerpt IS NOT YA. Gameboard of the Gods is book one in the new Age of X series for adults. This excerpt does have some bad language/profanity in it, just as a caution to readers who are sensitive to that kind of thing. It is in Mae's POV, one of the two main characters in GOTG (along with Justin).

Happy Reading! I really enjoyed this chapter! Gameboard of the Gods is scheduled for release by Dutton Books on June 4th, 2013. Mark your calendars!
