Publisher's Summary

The number-one New York Times best-selling 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. Together they have been charged with investigating reports of the supernatural and the return of the gods, both inside the Republic of United North America and out. With this highly classified knowledge comes a shocking revelation: Not only are the gods vying for human control, but the elect - special humans marked by the divine - are turning against one another in bloody fashion.

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. Here, in a society where women are commodities and religion is intertwined with government, Justin discovers powerful forces at work, even as he struggles to come to terms with his own reluctantly acquired deity.

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 secret.

    "FANTASTIC!"

    I am really excited about this series & really anxious for book 3. This series has everything I love woven together into a masterpiece of epic proportions. Things are heating up the gods are revealing themselves & chooses they're elites, priests & prophets & the world is the game board. I am delighted!!! The characters are full fleshed & completely compelling, they sweep you in to this grand adventure better than anything I've seen!!

    As much as I love music, I'd rather listen to a book. I love being taken far far away while doing everything.

    Any additional comments?

    Thought provoking ideas in this series. I didn't think I would like it at first but i got caught up in the story. It's like mythology meets star wars.

    "FANTASTIC STORY LINE. EXCELLENT WRITER. WELL PERFORMED."

    Justin and Mae are still facing problems with their romance. Justin are determined to prevent their bonding which is making Mae very unhappy. I find it frustrating too but that's what make the story interesting. Besides their dilemma they are also have to face enemies out to kill them. Is plot has it all, intrigues, politics, gods, humans and other supernatural season. Excellent. The only complain is book three is not out yet!! I hope it will come out ASAP!

    "Gripping..."

    Like all of Richelle Mead's books, the story is a page-turner. I only gave it 4 stars because, to me personally, the whole "pantheon of gods" thing is off-putting. But that's a personal thing.

    "Better than the 1st book"

    I continue to get drawn deeper into the world that Richelle has given us. Emily's enthusiasm in reading this take to us is quite entertaining.

    "great series"

    this series is so different I really love it and all the mysteries. The characters and the storyline is complicated and there is a lot going on so it is not for those looking for mindless entertainment. this is a well thought out long running series.

    What did you like best about this story?

    Always action packed and I love the characters!


    What does Emily Shaffer bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I think Emily Shaffer is a GREAT narrator! she is my favorite! :)


    Any additional comments?

    The first book in this series was really hard to listen to, But the second book I LOVED. She started to explain things that she should of in the first book! I will change my rating for the first book... I cant wait till the 3rd book!
