can she convince twelve worlds to unite as one ZodiacWhat I LikedAhhh I have been waiting for this book for SO LONG Before BEA 2014 before it had a cover before it seemed like everyone else had heard of this one Science fiction Astrology Wars A girl named after a Greek letter Awesome Totally up my alley I'm so glad to say that for the most part this book did not let me downRho's world has actually been turned upside down She's been seeing a dark mass in her star readings something that no one else has been seeing Then Cancer has been attacked and suddenly Rho is thrust into the role of Guardian of Cancer She must travel to each of the planets to warn them about the mysterious dark matter that is forming and the myth that isn't a myth Ophiuchus and the Thirteenth House is real But who will believe her And who will stand by her side when all twelve Houses don't trust each other exactly what Ophiuchus wantsScience fiction Ah I love anything that has to do with space honestly This book gets really into that kind of science fiction there is a lot of hyperspace hopping and planet traveling and intergalactic crazies Well maybe not intergalactic Intragalactic In any case I love the depth of the science part of this book Russell does an excellent job of creating and constructing this science fiction world a world that is completely fictional thus not futuristic The world building is phenomenal and very believable and fun to readAlso how cool is it that my star sign is the same as the protagonist's Go cancerAlso it is worth noting that while I LOVED the original cover I think the new cover is awesome I would have loved a copy of the book with the old cover as well as the new cover but ARCs and finished copies have the new cover Right Any ARCs with the old cover Someone let me know HaRho is an interesting character She isn't perfect and I didn't always agree with her decisions She doesn't expect to be a Guardian so I totally feel for her She is an excellent student something I'd like to think I relate to an apt observer and a clever mind She doesn't let others' disbelief in her stop her Her own planet didn't believe her when she started to talk about the potential of Ophiuchus being realRho also doesn't let a tricky and confusing romance shake her She is determined to visit the Houses and warn them about the impending doom that is Ophiuchus but no one will listen to her save a Libran ambassador Hysan Not even Mathias the Lodestar she appointed to protect and serve her believes her claims As you can probably guess there IS a love triangle in this book Not sure how it will go in the series for obvious spoilery reasons but in this book there is a love triangle Russell does a really great and cruel job of making readers love one boy in the first part of the book and then love the other boy in the second part of the book So basically I actually really like both guys and I'd hate to see one of them get hurt Hysan is charming and flirtatious and a secret genius Mathias is protective and skeptical and uiet Both are different but I really like them both as characters AND as love interestsThe plot of this book follows Rho's journey to each House which are planets to warn them about Ophiuchus None of the Houses really believe her and with each House visited and warned Rho's reputation both grows and splinters I love seeing her tested House after House I feel like Rho definitely wises up from beginning to end The ending is interesting Nothing is really resolved which is sort of how a first novel in a series functions So much is occurring within Houses in Rho's Guardian life with Ophiuchus roaming about in Rho's romantic life Rho is definitely confused and isn't about to make a decision in terms of a relationship anytime soon Which is smartOverall I'm pleased with this book I've been begging and pleading for it and then it dropped into my lap which is cool with me Thank you Razorbill Now the wait for book twoWhat I Did Not LikeThe love triangle is the only reason why this one isn't getting five stars Seriously I enjoyed the book that much I'm not sure how the romance will go in the remaining books in the series but in this book the love triangle is clear Rho is torn between both guys but the thing is I can totally see how she is The situation makes sense ish I still don't like the presence of the triangle it's not necessary honestly but I get it KindaWould I Recommend ItIf you love science fiction then DEFINITELY check out this book There aren't nearly enough awesome space related science fiction novels in YA literature these days Beth Revis's Across the Universe series Amie KaufmanMeagan Spooner's Starbound series and Imogen Howson's Linked series are three other really great example of space related science novels So if you liked any of those books definitely check out this one And even if you haven't read any of them pick this one up anywayRating4 stars What a wonderful debut I'm so glad that my instinct was correct with this one and that the story did not disappoint That would have been heartbreaking What's really heartbreaking is waiting for the next book
