Romina Russell has done it again! This book is even better than the first. I love how Rho and Mathias's relationship blossoms!!

Rhoma Grace, the one person who knows more than everyone else, is ironically the one that is dismissed by her own community. She has lost more than just her family and home. But this, as in any good story, does not equate to her giving up on seeking answers. However, nothing comes for free in the Zodiac - themes of appearances vs reality, trust, and choices come into play as time moves forward. Her character development was intriguing, and Rho has grown a lot since Book 1. I'm quite interested in seeing where the next book will take you. @Siri of the Hamilton Public Library Teen Review Board

“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.

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!
