This is the final stop on the Penguin summer reread tour in anticipation of Thirteen Rising that comes out in 4 DAYS PEOPLE … F.O.U.R. D.A.Y.S!! We’ve got pretty covers. We’ve had giveaways. We’ve got awesome interactive Q&A with Romina Russell herself on Twitter. I mean…this summer tour has been a GREAT time!
It seems unfair to be posting this and not be completely honest here, but I have not quite finished the series yet *insert face of despair here* and I wish that I had more time and less responsibilities to do so. BUT, I own every single book (see disclaimer below regarding this copy of Black Moon) and I am in love with the cover art and the concept of the story line. The atmosphere is rich, the characters are unique, and it’s an exciting adventure that I cannot wait to continue (when I have much less hw and have caught up on lost sleep)! Trust me when I say, this series is worth reading. Just pick up book 1, Zodiac, and let me know if you disagree *cough* you won’t *cough* :P
Thank you to Penguin Random House for providing a paperback copy of this book for review & promotional purposes. All thoughts and opinions expressed here are my own.

Summary: One final secret stands between Rho and the enemy. But will the devastating truth destroy her first?
Rho, the courageous visionary from House Cancer, lost nearly everything when she exposed and fought against the Marad, a mysterious terrorist group bent on destroying balance in the Zodiac Galaxy. Now the Marad has disappeared without a trace, and an uneasy peace has been declared.
But Rho is suspicious. She believes the Master is still out there in some other form. And looming over all are the eerie visions of her mother, who died many years ago but is now appearing to Rho in the stars.
When news of a stylish new political party supported by her best friend, Nishi, sends Rho on another journey across the Galaxy, she uses it as an opportunity to hunt the hidden master and seek out information about her mother. And what she uncovers sheds light on the truth–but casts darkness upon the entire Zodiac world.
Romina Russell recently announced her launch tour on Twitter, and I’ve copied the Tweet below for anyone who might be interested in attending! The three locations are in Miami, NY, and LA and I can personally vouch that Vroman’s in Los Angeles/Pasadena is a fantastic venue for author signings and Q&A!!
The final Twitter chat for this tour is being hosted on August 27th @ 8pm EST by @KrystiYAandWine (blog @YA and Wine) & @thebooktraveler (blog @The YA Book Traveler) so make sure you head over & check it out!
