Orphaned, disgraced, and stripped of her title, Rho is ready to live life quietly, as an aid worker in the Cancrian refugee camp on House Capricorn.
But news has spread that the Marad–an unbalanced terrorist group determined to overturn harmony in the Galaxy–could strike any House at any moment.
Then, unwelcome nightmare that he is, Ochus appears to Rho, bearing a cryptic message that leaves her with no choice but to fight.
Now Rho must embark on a high-stakes journey through an all-new set of Houses, where she discovers that there’s much more to her Galaxy–and to herself–than she could have ever imagined.

Why We Are Waiting:
Lauren: I’m always looking for new stories to read, so Melissa told me about the Zodiac series. I have not read the first one yet, but hearing Melissa talk about it has me looking forward to it! At least after book 2 comes out I can binge read them!
Melissa: Basically been waiting for this been since I finished Zodiac last year right around this time last year. Okay I technically started my ARC already, but I want my finished copy!! I’m so excited to explore the other Zodiac solar systems. Also the ending of Zodiac was hard to read through because everything was very intense. I must know what happens next!!
Kelly: I grew up with my mom’s hobby of astrology. I’ve always been fascinated by it and how accurately it can portray the people around me. I now use it as a tool to understand mannerisms, thoughts, actions, etc., of friends, family, and others who cross my path. I love it, and seeing that there’s a book out that uses astrology to further the plot line and create this unique world… well, you know where I’m headed! I need to get my hands on the first book!
