When Justin March and supersoldier Mae Koskinen are assigned to a diplomatic delegation going into Arcadia - a dangerous neighbouring country to the RUNA, in which religion is intertwined with government - they discover powerful forces at work.
Mae also has her own secret mission: 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.

Richelle Mead has risen to the challenge - a sequel that is better than book 1!
Our superwoman has acknowledged the existence of the supernatural, but, like Justin, is wary of the cost of accepting a deity's offer. Gods are vying for power and their chosen are pieces on a chessboard. These chosen are showing up in unexpected places with agendas of their own. Mae, without a patron god, is vulnerable and gets hurt in the worst possible way.
The two of them go to Arcadia, a neighbouring country (a sort of Bible Belt theocracy) as part of a delegation and become embroiled in a plot against the Runa.
I hope book 3 is published soon - waiting is torture!
The narrator is competent but she gets too excited when there is action in the story.
