Orphaned, disgraced, and stripped of her title, Rho is ready to live life quietly, as an aid worker in the Cancrian refugee camp on House Capricorn. But news has spread that the Marad, an unbalanced terrorist group determined to overturn harmony in the Galaxy, could strike any House at any moment. Then, unwelcome nightmare that he is, Ochus appears to Rho, bearing a cryptic message that leaves her with no choice but to fight. Now Rho must embark on a high-stakes journey through an all-new set of Houses, where she discovers that there's much more to her Galaxy, and to herself, than she could have ever imagined.

“With a stellar cast, fascinating mythology, and unexpected twists and turns, Zodiac is a must- read. I am a fan.”- Morgan Rhodes, New York Times bestselling author of the Falling Kingdoms series. Wandering Star by Romina Russell is the second book of the Zodiac series and is not exactly your normal science- fiction book. Rho Grace just wants to live quietly after everything that has happened but fate will not let her live peacefully. After being rejected by the Plenum and having no one believe her except her brother, Stanton, she just wants to live as a Cancrian on Cancer and just worry about nothing. But after receiving a cryptic message from Ochus, Rho has no choice but to hope that at least someone will believe her and prepare to fight the Marad. This book is based on the Zodiac symbols and is a very different book. - @WizardingInitiate of the Teen Review Board at the Hamilton Public Library

Wandering Star continues the story of Rho and her determination to unite her galaxy against a terrorist group. As with the first novel, WS does not disappoint. It doesn't lose momentum as sequels sometimes have a tendency to do. It keeps the tension and plot twists perfectly paced.

Russell weaves the story in a beautiful way and keeps the reader interested and excited while also imparting useful messages about life.

I connected particularly with Rho. She failed terribly and cause many problems to happen. She even lost hope and confidence within herself. But the support of great people (Hysan, anyone?) and her small successes, she picked herself back up.

Wandering Star is perfect for fantasy, astrology, and science fiction lovers. You won't be disappointed!
