Mae dealt out death regularly. It really wasn't a problem.
Friday 56:
"Stabbed through the heart with a silver dagger. During a full moon. Quite brutal." Cornelia almost, almost sounded like she actually had some emotion behind the words.
This week I am spotlighting Gameboard of the Gods by Richelle Mead. This has been on TBR mountain since May 23, 2013. Here is the description from Amazon:
The first installment of Richelle Mead’s Age of X series has all the elements that have made her bestselling Vampire Academy and Bloodlines series such megasuccesses: sexy, irresistible characters; romantic and mythological intrigue; and relentless action and suspense.

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.


  1. Someday I am planning to read some of these futuristic books. I did enjoy the three J. D. Robb books I read.

    Thanks for sharing, and here's mine: “THE GIRL BEFORE”

  2. I totally want to read this! Thanks for sharing this one because I had not heard of it before today. Merry Christmas and a blessed New Year to you as well!!!

  3. I have only read one of Mead's books, I keep meaning to read the rest of her Vampire Academy books, but I just haven't gotten around to doing it yet. Maybe that should be my bookish goal in the coming year.
    Thank you for visiting my blog, Have a Merry Christmas! (Or whatever holiday you celebrate)
