Waiting on Wednesday - The Immortal Crown

A weekly meme brought to you by Breaking The Spine where we get to show off some of the books we are waiting to be released.

This week I am looking forward to The Immortal Crown by Richelle Mead

Expected publication: May 29th 2014 by Dutton Adult

Gameboard of the Gods introduced religious investigator Justin March and Mae Koskinen, the beautiful supersoldier assigned to protect him. Together they have been charged with investigating reports of the supernatural and the return of the gods, both inside the Republic of United North America and out. With this highly classified knowledge comes a shocking revelation: Not only are the gods vying for human control, but the elect—special humans marked by the divine—are turning against one another in bloody fashion.

Their mission takes a new twist when they are assigned to a diplomatic delegation headed by Lucian Darling, Justin’s old friend and rival, going into Arcadia, the RUNA’s dangerous neighboring country. Here, in a society where women are commodities and religion is intertwined with government, Justin discovers powerful forces at work, even as he struggles to come to terms with his own reluctantly acquired deity.

Meanwhile, Mae—grudgingly posing as Justin’s concubine—has a secret mission of her own: 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

Why am I waiting?

I have enjoyed other books by Richelle Mead and look forward to this one purely because it is the same author.


  1. Thank you for the reminder that I wanted to check this series out :) Love this cover.

    Thanks for visiting our WoW today!

  2. Great pick! I have a copy of Gameboard of the gods, but won't read it until this one comes out. Not everyone loves this series as much as VA, but Richelle Mead is a must read for me. Thanks for sharing!

  3. I still haven't read Gameboard of the Gods, but hopefully I'll get to pick it up soon. Hope you enjoy The Immortal Crown.
