Blog Tour and Giveaway: Black Moon by Romina Russell

Welcome to the blog tour for Black Moon by Romina Russell! I loved this science fiction sequel, possibly more than either of the other two books in the series. 

Today, I'm sharing a mood board I created, inspired by Taurus! The Taurans in the Zodiac series are warriors in green, and I am showcasing that today. Be sure to check out the giveaway!

About the Book:

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. 

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.

Who are the Taurans?

The Promisaries of Taurus don a formfitting olive green uniform, adorned with shoulder epaulets that resemble the horns of a Bull, as part of their fearsome battlefield regalia. They work in strategic teams to take down entire units on the field of battle using their Trembles: Stout, horn-shaped devices that can be plunged into the earth to trigger small, targeted earthquakes.

  1. Love the mood board- makes me want to read this series!

    1. Thank you! If you read the books, I hope you enjoy them, Angela! =)

  2. Soooo I'm actually kind of wary for this series? I tried starting it years ago but didn't get that far into it even though I adore scifi. Plus I've heard of a stark love triangle that I just didn't want to get into. I JUST DON'T KNOW if I should go in for the scifi even though I'm not a fan of love triangles. :'D I've heard awesome things about this conclusion book though!

    1. I know what you mean! The love triangle is really a thing in book two (and I didn't really like book two). Books one and three were very good.

  3. Whoa I had no idea there were so many books already! I thought there was only Zodiac haha
    I totally love your mood board! Looks awesome :)

    1. Four total, and we're on book three! I am excited to see how things end.

      Thank you, Genesis! <3

  4. Wow Alyssa, that mood board is SO COOL! I always love reading your posts because you can totally pull me in even when you're talking about series I haven't read yet. Well, that...and give me major coat envy. I suddenly need a green longline wool coat! Hahaha.

    1. Thank you! I started making the board and then went into a completely different direction, in terms of the pins. It was a lot of fun though. :D

      I especially love the green coat with the hood! Kind of like Little Red Riding Hood, but green. ;)

  5. Ohh, love the board you created :) SO pretty. <3 These books are just so gorgeous looking. Ack. Maybe I will want to read them.. one day, haha :D

    1. Thank you! I love it too! I fell deep into the Pinterest hole, with this one. I like the series overall, though I struggled with book two! The final book will be publishing in August, which is exciting. ^_^


I love comments! I will always try and reply to your comments, as well as leave some comment love on your blog! :)

Also, this an award and tag free blog. While I am flattered that you would think of me, I really do not have the time to follow up. Thank you!
