Waiting on Wednesday (#180): Black Moon by Romina Russell


"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.


This week, I'm featuring:


Black Moon by Romina Russell
Book Three of the Zodiac series
Publisher: Razorbill
Publication Date: December 6, 2016

Summary (from Goodreads):

One final secret stands between Rho and the enemy. But will the devastating truth be enough to 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 in the Zodiac Galaxy. 

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--as an Aquarian, not a Cancer. 

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.


  



I hate the romance in this series, but the story (minus romance) is REALLY good. I can't wait to see how it all ends!

  1. I love the covers for these books! I loved Zodiac, but never got around to finishing Wandering Star. I get that way during school where I start reading a ton of books and finish very few of them. It is in my pile of half finished books, but not for bad reasons lol

    1. I love the covers as well! To be honest, I didn't love Wandering Star as much as I enjoyed Zodiac, but I'm really excited to read Black Moon. Hopefully you enjoy Wandering Star (and Black Moon), Dana!

  19. I've wanted to read Zodiac since it came out! I'm so happy to hear the story stays strong for three books. I don't like most romance in the stories, but hey, that's a requirement now anyway right?

    Thanks for visiting my blog! Have a wonderful day!

    1. I don't mind romance NOT being in a book or series! But I do mind when the romance is not well-written. :/ Hopefully the author clears up everything in this book.

      Thank you, Amber!

    1. YUP. I understand that sentiment perfectly. But that's why we have bottomless TBR lists and such, so we can come back to these lovely books years from now. ;)

      Thank you, Maria!

  21. I didn't read the synopsis because I didn't want to be spoiled, but I am interested to see what people will think of this! I'm thinking of marathoning the series once it is all released. :D Also, thanks for checking out my blog!

    Hope you are having a great weekend!
