Okay, that might be a BIT of an exaggeration but the 4th book of the Zodiac series, Thirteen Rising, comes out in August so the lovely folks at Penguin Teen have put together an amazing 2 months of Zodiac awesomeness!
If you’ve already read the previous three books in the Zodiac series, then now is the perfect time to start re-reading in anticipation of book #4! And if you’re like me and haven’t started the series yet, now’s a great time to start! I’ll be reading each of the books over the course of the next two months along with y’all and posting my reviews of each, plus potentially some other fun stuff too! 😉
This week kicks off ZODIAC! Are you ready?

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 Cancerian 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.
