GAMEBOARD OF THE GODS
Genre: Paranormal/Urban Fantasy, Urban Fantasy
Mead kicks off her highly anticipated adult Age of X series. This near-future dystopian tale is set in a world redrawn after plague and religious extremists nearly destroy it. There are multiple layers of plot and character motivation in this story that the author slowly peels back, and each revelation adds more questions. Mead is a master storyteller.
Justin March is an ex-investigator of religious extremists, exiled from RUNA (Republic of United North America) for telling the truth about his last case. Justin is offered a second chance when Praetorian soldier Mae Koskinen arrives to take him back to RUNA to investigate a string of ritual murders. They quickly discover that some of these events defy scientific explanation. Just who or what are they up against? Someone is orchestrating events like a chess match, and those machinations could get them killed. (DUTTON, Jun., 464 pp., $26.95)
