I was sorting my want-to-read books on Goodreads when I stumbled upon this book. Intriguing. Intriguing. I actually haven’t seen or heard anything like it since most of the YA books nowadays either involve vampires, witches and the like so this is definitely something new.
At the dawn of time, there were 13 Houses in the Zodiac Galaxy. Now only 12 remain….
Rhoma Grace is a 16-year-old student from House Cancer with an unusual way of reading the stars. While her classmates use measurements to make accurate astrological predictions, Rho can’t solve for ‘x’ to save her life—so instead, she looks up at the night sky and makes up stories.
When a violent blast strikes the moons of Cancer, sending its ocean planet off-kilter and killing thousands of citizens—including its beloved Guardian—Rho is more surprised than anyone when she is named the House’s new leader. But, a true Cancrian who loves her home fiercely and will protect her people no matter what, Rho accepts.
Then, when more Houses fall victim to freak weather catastrophes, Rho starts seeing a pattern in the stars. She suspects Ophiuchus—the exiled 13th Guardian of Zodiac legend—has returned to exact his revenge across the Galaxy. Now Rho—along with Hysan Dax, a young envoy from House Libra, and Mathias, her guide and a member of her Royal Guard—must travel through the Zodiac to warn the other Guardians.
But who will believe anything this young novice says? Whom can Rho trust in a universe defined by differences? And how can she convince twelve worlds to unite as one Zodiac?
Embark on a dazzling journey with ZODIAC, the first novel in an epic sci-fi-meets-high-fantasy series set in a galaxy inspired by the astrological signs.
Expected publication would be on the 9th of December 2014 by Razorbill. It would have 368 pages on hardcover and look at that beautiful book cover. I just love it. Seriously, a book that’s based on the Zodiac Signs? I really think that set this apart from your usual Sci-Fi and fantasy books. To be honest, I usually check my daily horoscope so I’m really excited about this. Not for being superstitious or something, but I do it just for fun. The summary projects a strong world and characters. I bet this would be an action-packed and really interesting read.

I can’t seem to find any Blog and Book Tours scheduled for Zodiac so I’ll just keep an eye for it and update this post whenever possible. Okay? Ciao 😀
