Book 3 in the breathtaking sci-fi space saga inspired by astrology that will stun fans of the Illuminae Files and Starbound series.

One final secret stands between Rho and the enemy. But will the devastating truth be enough to destroy her first?

Rho, the courageous visionary from House Cancer, lost nearly everything when she exposed and fought against the Marad, a mysterious terrorist group bent on destroying balance in the Zodiac Galaxy. Now, the Marad has disappeared without a trace, and an uneasy peace has been declared in the Zodiac Galaxy.

But Rho is suspicious. She believes the Master is still out there in some other form. And looming over all are the eerie visions of her mother, who died many years ago, but is now appearing to Rho in the stars.

When news of a stylish new political party supported by her best friend, Nishi, sends Rho on another journey across the galaxy, she uses it as an opportunity to hunt the hidden master and seek out information about her mother. And what she uncovers sheds light on the truth--but casts darkness upon the entire Zodiac world.

I read this book during the time when I’m actually on hiatus for my book-related stuff, including reading, book blogging and actively talking about books on social media. I was so excited when my office’s administrative staff passed the package to me with this pretty book in it.

I’ve always love the Zodiac series. The world building is so extensive and complex, the characters are enthralling and the story is simply soul-gripping.

In Black Moon, we’re introduced to another three houses, i.e. Scorpio, Aquarius and Pisces. I really admire the amazing creativity and imagination of Romina in the world building. It’s not only one but 12 houses/planets! There’s a big contrast between House Scorpio and House Aquarius. House Scorpio features advance technology (sci-fi) whereas in House Aquarius, it’s like a fairy tale land (fantasy).

The one thing I love in each of the houses:
House Scorpio – very advanced filtering system in Planet Sconcion which splits H2O to oxygen for breathing and hydrogen for fuel. We need this technology in order to move into space!
House Aquarius – Of course it’s the closet archiver! Isn’t it a dream gadget for all ladies?
House Pisces – This could be the only one house with real books and shelves but on top of that, they have Pegazi!

I was awestruck by the ending and honestly speaking, I started to get annoyed to read books in series. Too bad I have to wait until August 29th this year for the final installment of the series.
