Waiting on Wednesday (#215): Thirteen Rising 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:


Thirteen Rising by Romina Russell
Book Four of the Zodiac series
Publisher: Razorbill
Publication Date: August 29, 2017

Summary (from Goodreads):

Romina Russell’s epic sci-fi fantasy series reaches its breathtaking conclusion with this fourth and final novel.

The master has been unmasked. Rho’s world has been turned upside down. With her loved ones in peril and all the stars set against her, can the young Guardian from House Cancer muster the strength to keep fighting? Or has she finally found her match in a master whose ambition to rule knows no limits?




Another Wednesday, another conclusion novel! This series has had its ups and downs, but for the most part, I have really enjoyed it so far. The third book was so good - easily the best yet. I'm hoping that Russell can deliver a fantastic, satisfying ending!

    1. I liked book one but didn't totally love the second book. It was the third book that restored my faith in the series. I'm sure this fourth book will be amazing. Thank you, Liz!

  21. I'm always impressed by a series that gets better with time (instead of the dreaded "first book was great the rest are meh" syndrome). Hopefully this one is just as good as the third book was for you, Alyssa!

    1. Same! This series is one of those (though book two was the "meh" book). Book three was SO good. Thank you, Danya!

  22. I haven't read this series. Hope the ending is good for you.

  23. So, the third one is the best so far? I don't know why I want to finish this series so bad. I didn't like the first one and I am still angry about the second one. I am so curious to see how it all ends, especially romance-wise. I'm equal parts angry and curious. Haha. I suspect the gorgeous covers have a lot to do with the fact that I still want to continue. I hope that this conclusion is everything you hope it will be and MORE! :)

    1. In my opinion, yes! Things get a lot more clear-cut, in book three. Hint hint. I hope you finish this series (and enjoy it), Cyra!

  24. Ohh awesome pick Alyssa, I did heard mix reviews about it as well. Plus I thought this series was a trilogy I had no clue there was going to be a fourth book coming out. I hope you enjoy it Alyssa. Thank you so much for stopping by my WOW pick for this week.

    1. Yeah, the series is kind of hit-or-miss. I didn't love book two but I loved book three and book one. This fourth one might be the best of the four, who knows.

      You're welcome!

    1. I totally understand that feeling! It's amazing how fast time flies and BAM, an entire series has been published right under your nose. If you read these books, I hope you enjoy them, Laura!
