The Immortal Crown is the second book in Richelle Mead’s Age of X series. In her new adult series we continue to follow Mae and Justin in their search for the Elects and godly influences mixed with human lies. Mae and Justin are still dancing around their emotions, Justin is still hiding things that could help Mae discover who this new god is that is communicating with her, and they have stumbled onto some crazy stuff. On top of dealing with all this Elects turning on each other, which causes them to hide their true natures with charms, they are also helping Lucian Darling on a diplomatic assignment. This assignment deals with a society outside of the RUNA, in Arcadia, where men are polygamist and women are treated as if they must uphold the Taliban rules. On top of all this Mae is also investigating where her niece might be, and rumor has it she might be located near Arcadia. This is not a sophomore slump book at all, filled with action and adventure, along with some interesting introductions to new gods it is a book to keep the audience captivate. Mae and Justin still keep the reader interested with their tension and wit, and frankly the end is very promising for an exciting next book.
