Harkcover page number: 336
My rating: 4/5 stars
My review: Zodiac is the amazing debut novel of Ramonia Russell. It tells the story of a girl named Rho in a universe where people live on planets and moons that make up the Zodiac constellations. Rho is a young student studying to become a Zodai, someone who reads the stars for predictions, and protects the galaxy. But one day Rho’s House is suddenly attacked and they are whisked off on an adventure to find out the cause and to stop it before other Houses attacked. You may know the twelve Zodiac signs, but Russell introduces us to a new house, the 12th house, which hasn’t been around for thousands of years. Romina Russell creates an amazing world with her novel. She creates amazing planets full of people who represent their house in both appearance and personality. I loved how you can really see the differences in the different types of people and how they interact with one another. She creates characters that really represent their houses, but also define the typical borders out for them. While the love triangle is cheesey at times, her amazing characters make up for it. They have amazing personalities that fit greatly into her story. Russel combines cool space travel and fascinating new technologies, with a magical world full of people who can see the future- and fight to save it.
