Wandering Star

ZODIAC #2: A new enemy has risen in the Zodiac Galaxy–and this one has an army . . .

Cover for Estrella Errante, the Spanish version of Wandering Star
Del Nuevo Extremo, Argentina


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.


Russell’s excellent writing has only gotten better: her descriptions are deep and lush, her heroes fully formed and sympathetic.

— Booklist

Russell’s conception of a galaxy where the signs of the zodiac govern life is rich and well imagined. The setting is lush, revealing amazing technologies and vivid landscapes. The constant shift between places allows the reader to more fully explore the sumptuous world Russell creates.
