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.

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.

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.

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!
