Richelle Mead, the #1 New York Times, USA Today, and Wall Street Journal bestselling author of the Vampire Academy and Bloodlines YA series - whose books have sold more than one million copies in hardcover - debuts on the Dutton list with Gameboard of the Gods, the first novel in her Age of X 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 will have all the elements that have made her YA Vampire Academy and Bloodlines series such mega successes: sexy, irresistible characters; romantic and mythological intrigue; and relentless action and suspense.

Brilliant, amazing, excellent, must-read...
A refreshing story amidst supernatural teen books
Yes. I love a good teen vampire book and have read a fair few, but this book is such a refreshing change in story and characters that was hooked fairly quickly. Having read Meads other books, I really enjoyed the overall story and pace of the book but was difficult to understand the world the story is set in as there are little clues and you have to piece together or come up with your own take on who's who and what.
Excellently read with different voices for characters made it easy to understand who was talking. Sometimes it's nice to just listen to the story.
Being 19 hours long you really couldn't listen to it all, but I did have it one every time I had a spare half hour and got through the book quickly.
