I found out about this upcoming series two weeks ago over on Nightmare on Bookstreet.
Gameboard of the Gods
Expected Publication Date: 6/4/2013
You had me at "In a futuristic world nearly destroyed by religious extremists..." This would be my first from Richelle Mead and I'm very much looking forward to it. You can click on the book cover for the full description on Goodreads.
Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine.
