Book Review: Black Moon by Romina Russell

Image via Goodreads

Genre: Young Adult Science Fiction & Fantasy
Series: Zodiac, book 3
Rating: 5/5
Recommend to Others?: Yes


My Summary:
Two months of no attacks has ushered in an “uneasy peace” (book jacket flap synopsis). But Piscians begin to literally drop like flies. Rho’s best friend, Nishi, joins a new youthful political party. And visions of Rho’s estranged and long dead mother begin to appear.

Rho suspects the Marad aren’t as gone as people want to believe and she aims to discover what’s truly going on in the Zodiac and in her own life.

The past is resurfacing. Tomorrow is uncertain. Trust is fragile.

And the choices made now could possibly decide the fate of the Zodiac.


My Review:
This series just keeps getting better and better! The plot thickens and the stakes raise higher than I thought possible. Once again I am in awe of Romina Russell’s ability to weave a story, craft a whole new world, and devise a plot so intricate and fascinating.

Something I began to suspect in  last book is answered in this book. I’m glad as was wrong on that theory and pleasantly surprised by what the true answer was. Goodness, you learn so much more in Black Moon and it’s almost disorienting (in a good way). Tension and danger keep mounting and there were several times I wanted the book to end because I was so afraid of what the outcome could be. I feared for Rho and her friends and allies. Tomorrow – the next book, Thirteen Rising, is so uncertain that I have no idea what will happen next.

I am left pleasantly devastated like the book nerd I am after reading Black Moon and need to read the next book as soon as possible. It’s like the saying goes, things will get worse before the get better. And I see that happening as this series progresses.

Few book series have made me feel so invested in the story – a sign of a true work of art in my eyes. I can’t fathom how any of this is possible, which is awesome. The author has me hooked quite thoroughly. Black Moon is definitely a win for me.
