Gameboard of the Gods (Age of X #1)

By Richelle Mead

Gameboard of the Gods (Age of X, #1)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, the first installment of Richelle Mead’s Age of X series, will have all the elements that have made her YA Vampire Academy and Bloodlines series such megasuccesses: sexy, irresistible characters; romantic and mythological intrigue; and relentless action and suspense

I don't quite know what to say about this book... for me personally It was a bit hard to understand. The characters were not so real to me, and by real I mean that Mead wrote a good deal about them, but it didn't speak to me, like, i couldn't really believe it. the story otherwise was good, I liked the setting, which by the way was hard to understand to in the beginning because it's so different from our world, or at least that's what it looks like in the beginning. 
And, im not so sure if this book really needed all those pages, I think it was a bit to long...

would i recommend this book? maybe, I think you have to like sci-fi a bit and fantasy to really like this book, but I think you should give it a try at least :)

and I have to say Im a bit disappointed with Mead, because i KNOW she can do better than this..
