Teaser Tuesday - Gameboard of the Gods by Richelle Mead

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just:
* Grab your current read
* Open to a random page
* Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
* BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
* Share the title and author, too, so that other Teaser Tuesday participants can add the book to their To Be Read (TBR) Lists if they like your teasers!


Wow!  I can't believe that I almost forgot Teaser Tuesday AGAIN!  But, it is still Tuesday, and better late than never, right?!

Over the holidays I read the first two books in the Sky Chasers series, Glow, and Spark, by Amy Kathleen Ryan.  I really enjoyed them, and am looking forward to reading the third in the series, Flame.

Last week a friend loaned me a book that I've started and am really liking a lot - Gameboard of the Gods (Age of X #1) by Richelle Mead.  Unlike many of her other novels this is adult oriented, and so far it is really very good.  In this scene, Justin March - who has just been retrieved from exile in Panama - is easing back into his old job as an investigator of religious groups and supernatural claims.  He's been recalled to solve a string of murders with ceremonial and ritualistic elements that no one else has been able to solve.  And the killer - or killers - will certainly strike again soon...

The Tease:

"His first task for SCI actually wasn't a visit to the murder sites or even the religious groups he'd tagged as possible culprits.  He'd meant what he said to Cornelia: He had someone he was certain could crack the video.  If it really was faked."

What's your Tease?
