Readathon + Giveaway: Zodiac

June 30, 2017

Penguin Teen’s Zodiac series summer readathon kicks off this week in honor of the final book releasing on August 29. It doesn’t matter if you are new to the series (like me) or rereading it for the millionth time, all are welcome to join in on the fun online using #ZodiacBooks! Romina Russell will even be a part of a Twitter Q&A after each book. I was able to meet Romina last summer, and she is the sweetest (read the event recap here). I’m so excited to finally have the chance to read her books that I’ve created a mood board to celebrate!

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.

    My daughter did her hair for prom just like that photo in your mood board. These covers are stunning and the series sounds exciting to read.

      Wow, I’m sure her hair looked gorgeous then! And I agree that the covers are beautiful—they just kept getting better and better each time.
