Goodreads Description:
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.

I absolutely LOVE this book! Zodiac was one of my favorite books last year, and Wandering Star is most definitely one of my favorites this year! The world-building is, well, OUT OF THIS WORLD! Romina has brought Astrology to life in the form of worlds, goverments, technologies and even the citizens of those planets. Making the story connect and interweave itself into your mind. We all know our Astrological Sign (I'm a Gemini), and seeing what kind of planet I would have lived on was so cool, but I know that I'd be a Riser and Centaurion would be my real home. With that said, reading about the different planets and their quirks made me wish that I had a spaceship, and that they were actual places I could go. The character development was one of the greatest parts of this book in my opinion. In Zodiac we really didn't get to see much of Ochus and get a feel for what he was like, but now we do. We get to see a lot of new characters, and we get to see more of the characters that we have gotten to know and love in Zodiac. Rho becomes even stronger and wiser, and we also get to see more of Stanton and Hysan. :) 
The last one hundred pages or so kept me on the edge of my seat with plot-twists and so much action that made attempting any coherent thought when I finished nearly impossible. Overall, I would (and will) highly recommend both Zodiac and Wandering Star to those of you who like Science Fiction and Fantasy novels, especially if Astrology interests you.
