The Immortal Crown by Richelle Mead Review

I received this ARC from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review



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.


MY THOUGHTS

The Immortal Crown is book two of the Age of X series.  I was lucky enough to review the first book in this series and I had given it 3 out of 5.   Now I have just finished reading this one and I find it is better than the first one. 

Richelle Mead' world building increases in this second book and I have to say I love love love this one.  I couldn't stop reading it and really I can't wait to read the next book.  I think I will be buying this one in hardcover as soon as it comes out.

I highly recommend this book .

I give this 5 out of 5

You can pre-order The Immortal Crown at Book Depository and amazon.com. 
It will be out on May 29th 2014.
