Waiting on Wednesday: ZODIAC by Romina Russell

Jill over at Breaking the Spine started this and I believe that it's awesome" This blog post is to alert those that visit about "the" book that we cannot wait to get our hands on.

This week my WoW is ZODIAC by Romina Russell.  First of all the cover is quite enticing, sharp and very intriguing. Then I read the synopsis and I was blown away with it's original and inventive concept. I say YES!! and now I will be left pining for this gem until the end of this year.

Astrology enters uncharted territory in the explosive first book of this epic sci-fi meets high-fantasy series.
At the dawn of time, the Zodiac Universe was made up of thirteen solar systems—Houses— each one named for the astrological sign of its citizens. Only twelve Houses remain, and the Zodiac Universe has enjoyed peace for centuries.

Then a terrifying blast tears through Cancer, killing millions of citizens. Now Rho, an intuitive young Guardian, must unite the twelve Houses of the Zodiac before an ancient, power-hungry evil destroys their world. But who amongst the vastly different Houses will believe Rho’s story that Ochus, the banished thirteenth guardian from Zodiac lore, is not only real but is determined to get revenge on everyone from Virgo to Leo and back again?

And who can Rho trust in a world defined by differences?
