Yes, most was explained later on, but for the first half I was utterly lost. This book is a mixture of urban fantasy gichelle, American Gods, and the X files, as Mead blends science fiction, religion and philosophy in a book that was hard to put down. The world is Earth in the future after a deadly virus has devastated the world and it’s populace.
You could make a killing over at the poker tables, you know. Why is RUNA against religion? It is suspenseful and enchanting, and the prose is hard to resist, as Mead has showcased here her remarkable skill of “showing, not telling” style. Her title of my favorite author is still secure.

Her skin was alabaster and felt like silk, a soft contrast to the strong muscles he could feel when he ran his hand over one of her long, sleek legs.

Other forces are at work This is a book I gameoard reread while I wait. It had to be some trick of her mind…because what else could it be? Mae put on a look as polite and deferential as any she would give Gan, though inside, she was seething.
Richelle Mead never makes romances easy, does she? Lots of times in series, you will see initially unrequited love.
See how we rate. And what she wanted most was for this day to be over, so that life could return to normal.

The romance will leave you breathless.
