Overview

The truth is, when you banish the gods from the world, they eventually come back—with a vengeance.
 
In the near future, Justin March lives in exile from the Republic of United North America. After failing in his job as an investigator of religious groups and supernatural claims, Justin is surprised when he is sent back with a peculiar assignment—to solve a string of ritualistic murders steeped in seemingly unexplainable phenomena.
 
Justin’s return comes with an even bigger shock: His new partner and bodyguard, Mae Koskinen, is a prætorian, one of the Republic’s technologically enhanced supersoldiers. Mae’s inexplicable beauty and aristocratic upbringing attract Justin’s curiosity and desire, but her true nature holds more danger than anyone realizes.
 
As their investigation unfolds, Justin and Mae find themselves in the crosshairs of mysterious enemies. Powers greater than they can imagine have started to assemble in the shadows, preparing to reclaim a world that has renounced religion and where humans are merely gamepieces on their board.

Praise

Praise for Richelle Mead and her novels

“An engaging read, with an unusually tangible, believable, living story world, featuring a protagonist of unexpected depth and sympathy.”
–Jim Butcher, New York Times bestselling author of the Dresden Files, on Succubus Blues

“Writing this book tempts me to believe in angels…or deals with the devil. Succubus Blues is original, exciting, seductive stuff, filled with characters I’d sell my soul to meet.”
–Rachel Caine, New York Times bestselling author of the Morganville Vampires series

“The most exciting yet…Mead’s storytelling improves with each installment as she keeps readers on the edge of their seats while adding a few unexpected twists.”
–Associated Press on Blood Promise, the fourth installment in the Vampire Academy series

“Mead’s absorbing, debut YA novel…blends intricately detailed fantasy with a contemporary setting, teen-relevant issues, and a diverse…cast of supporting characters.”
