"Waiting on" Wednesday #3: Gamboard of the Gods & The Fiery Heart by Richelle Mead

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week I decided to do a Richelle Mead edition post, because I am eagrly awaiting two of her books. These two books are:

Title: Gamboard of the Gods (Age of X #1)
Author: Richelle Mead
Series: Age of X
Publisher: Dutton Adult
Publication Date: June 4, 2013

Description from Goodreads:
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've read chapters 1-3 of Gameboard of the Gods on Richelle Mead's website HERE and I wanted to keep reading more. Can't wait to buy this when it comes out :). 


Title: The Fiery Heart (Bloodlines #4)
Author: Richelle Mead
Series: Bloodlines
Publisher: Razorbill
Publication Date: November 19, 2013

Description from Goodreads: 
In The Indigo Spell, Sydney was torn between the Alchemist way of life and what her heart and gut were telling her to do. And in one breathtaking moment that Richelle Mead fans will never forget, she made a decision that shocked even her. . . .

But the struggle isn't over for Sydney. As she navigates the aftermath of her life-changing decision, she still finds herself pulled in too many directions at once. Her sister Zoe has arrived, and while Sydney longs to grow closer to her, there's still so much she must keep secret. Working with Marcus has changed the way she views the Alchemists, and Sydney must tread a careful path as she harnesses her profound magical ability to undermine the way of life she was raised to defend. Consumed by passion and vengeance, Sydney struggles to keep her secret life under wraps as the threat of exposure—and re-education—looms larger than ever.

Pulses will race throughout this thrilling fourth installment in the New York Times bestselling Bloodlines series, where no secret is safe.

I need to get my hands on this book, because I need to know what is going to happen with Adrian and Sydney. Plus, we are going to be reading from Adrian's POV :D!
