Wandering Star, book 2 of the Zodiac Galaxy series by Romina Russell
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.
The Trouble With Destiny by Lauren Morrill
With her trusty baton and six insanely organized clipboards, drum major Liza Sanders is about to take Destiny by storm—the boat, that is. When Liza discovered that her beloved band was losing funding, she found Destiny, a luxury cruise ship complete with pools, midnight chocolate buffets, and a $25,000 spring break talent show prize.
Liza can’t imagine senior year without the band, and nothing will distract her from achieving victory. She’s therefore not interested when her old camp crush, Lenny, shows up on board, looking shockingly hipster-hot. And she’s especially not interested in Russ, the probably-as-dumb-as-he-is-cute prankster jock whose ex, Demi, happens be Liza’s ex–best friend and leader of the Athenas, a show choir that’s the band’s greatest competition.
But it’s not going to be smooth sailing. After the Destiny breaks down, all of Liza’s best-laid plans start to go awry. Liza likes to think of herself as an expert at almost everything, but when it comes to love, she’s about to find herself lost at sea.
Shadows of Angels by L.G. Rollins
With a quick nod, Aerbrin lifted the light stone from Gavil’s hand.
“Never tell a soul you have it.” Gavil’s finger came up to emphasize his words. “Keep it with you at all times.”
A Zaad stone is the most powerful object in the land—and now Aerbrin has possession of one. It’s up to her to keep the stone from ending up with the man who killed her parents. But a secret this pwerful is hard to keep hidden for long. When she finally faces her enemies, her only hope is to use the power locked within the stone—a power that could consume her and all that she knows. This intriguing fantasy is full of magic, mystery, and twists you won’t see coming!
