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.

Favorite of all rachael meads series!!

Once again finishing this series for the 4 th time waiting for book 3 I'm going crazy. These books are extreme genius! The characters are original & intense everything about this series is exciting & edgy. I love the way the gods are picking players & setting earths stage. I love all the different pantheons coming known I am really looking forward to the Eye of andromeda

can't wait for the next installment.

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.

Nooo!

After finishing the second book in the series I realized that the third book hasn’t and probably will never be published. I’m sure it would have been great like the first two.

Loved both books.

I love both books by very disappointed that there is no news about a third book coming out, at the of the second book she really just leaves the readers hanging, and that's not fair to her readers, she really needs to update her readers, must are her loyal fans, to all of her books.

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.
