This was a beautiful ending to one of my favorite series. It's definitely an emotional roller coaster. I couldn't put it down. Thank you, Romina Garber, for such a wonderful story.

I loved the way that this book/series ended, I feel like everything came full circle. I loved seeing the growth in Rho and how her relationships with her peers developed. I love the theme of unity and togetherness that this series has, it's so important. There's also an emphasis on family, friendship, loss, finding your strength, your voice, and teamwork which was refreshing to see in a young adult novel. This is by far my favorite sci-fi series.

***Review posted on The Eater of Books! blog*** Thirteen Rising by Romina Russell Book Four of the Zodiac series Publisher: Razorbill Publication Date: August 29, 2017 Rating: 2 stars Source: Review copy sent by the publisher Summary (from Goodreads): Romina Russell’s epic sci-fi fantasy series reaches its breathtaking conclusion with this fourth and final novel. The master has been unmasked. Rho’s world has been turned upside down. With her loved ones in peril and all the stars set against her, can the young Guardian from House Cancer muster the strength to keep fighting? Or has she finally found her match in a master whose ambition to rule knows no limits? What I Liked: ***SPOILER-FREE REVIEW*** (At least in terms of Thirteen Rising. Spoilers for Zodiac, Wandering Star, and/or Black Moon are possible.) I'd been looking forward to reading Thirteen Rising since I found out that there would be a fourth book in the series. I'd found this out before Black Moon was published last year, and while I didn't love the idea of more waiting, I was on board with it after reading Black Moon. Black Moon was incredible and definitely my favorite of the series, but the ending was extremely cliffhanger-y. Thirteen Rising picks up fairly quickly after Black Moon ends, and the story takes off from there. I so wanted to love Thirteen Rising but sadly, I didn't. I didn't absolutely hate it either though. In this final novel, Rho must face her fears, brave her grief, and fight to save the Zodiac from the master, who has been unmasked. Her loved ones are dead, in trouble, or pushed away by her decisions, and Rho is desperate, too desperate, hold on to something to fight for. Will she rise and fight, or will she bow and fall? My liking of this book rose and fell like the sun rising and setting. In the very beginning, I was hooked and cheering for Rho. And then she pissed me off and I was frustrated. And then I felt like I could cheer her on again. And then she pissed me off some more. I had a love-hate relationship with the book, I suppose. I have to respect Rho for being consistent - she has been consistently impulsive and reckless in this series, and it gets her into all kinds of ridiculous trouble. Her mistakes cost her, but also cost her friends and family. She never learns, never listens, but she also finds her way, amid her mistakes. While I was frustrated with Rho, I could see her growing up in this book. And in the series in general. I adored Hysan and his incredible brain. He is easily the most intelligent and clever character of this series. He doesn't trust anyone and holds so many secrets, but it's hard to fault him for that. He has a good heart and he is entirely too selfless, especially when it comes to Rho. I honestly think he deserved better, someone who didn't play with his emotions back and forth like a seesaw. I wasn't pleased with the romance but I was happy to see that there was no love triangle in this book. The only ship is Hysan and Rho, and I liked them theoretically, but Rho kept not giving them a chance. I wanted their relationship to be so much healthier, but it wasn't. The story, for the most part, was interesting kept my attention. I couldn't wait to get to the end to see how things shook out.
