Vale, lo he terminado anoche y realmente el final ha sido todo un SHOCK... no me creo que haya pasado ESO y menos mal que no tengo que esperar mas que 9 días para leer el desenlace final :O

En general me ha gustado pero tal vez de los tres que llevo leído hasta ahora fue en el que menos cosas han pasado, con la trama algo mas lenta (menos las últimas paginas que pasa de todo)

A villain is only a villain from the hero's point of view. There is no universal right or wrong because there can be no universal judge. Existence is too complicated and naunced for such simplicity. And that is why the bad must exist alongside the good... because to eradicate one is to eradicate both

A diferencia de los otros dos libros, en Black Moon vemos menos acción, lo cual no es para nada malo. Es un libro más político y estratégico pero no por eso lo amé menos que los otros dos. Los nuevos

I just can't convey enough how much I love this series! The world is so complex and vast and interesting. The plot just keeps getting bigger and the characters are developing beautifully! I love this series and I can't wait to go on and read the final book and find out how it all ends.

It seems like only yesterday I was turning the pages of Zodiac, book one in the Zodiac quartet. Yet here I am attempting to review the third installment. Black Moon is without a doubt my favorite book in the series, and here's just a snippet of what you can expect: action, kissing, a royal ball, magical creatures, suspense, betrayal, and deception. What more could I ask for??

What I love about the Zodiac series is that each book expands, deepens, and complicates the plot of the series. Each new d

4.5/5 stars.
Awesome world building! The images pictured by the author are amazing! This book has it all. Character development. Big reveals. Or should I say HUGE! :)) Ok. Ok. I am gonna stop the jokes. We finally get some answers regarding the Zodiac's origin. Now we finally know what happened with the thirteenth house. The big bad villain if finally revealed. And I am glad that some of my brain-storming theories were right.

3.5 stars. Perhaps i read this at the wrong time, but unfortunately i was disappointed with Black Moon. The pace felt really slow, and i felt like nothing much had really happened. I was also disappointed with the development of most of the characters. Some of them had changed, and not in a way that seemed consistent with their development from the first two books. Basically i felt like I didn't know some of the characters anymore. Could it be because it's been nearly a year since i read Wanderi ...more

Gah I don't know why I thought this was the end of the series! But as I read I knew there had be another book coming. It was really good but not my favorite of the series. Also there's one thing that made me rate this a 4 instead of a 5 but I can't say because it's spoilery. But I do really want to see how the series ends so I will be reading book 4.

Romina Russell la saca del estadio una vez más con la construcción de su universo, pero para mi pesar, eso fue lo único que logró retenerme y hacerme emocionar con Luna negra.

El conocer a Rho y las transiciones que atraviesa debido a todas las situaciones que pasan en el Zodíaco, es muy importante de cara a su papel como Estrella Errante, pero no pude conectarme con el sentimentalismo que la permeaba constantemente y que me hizo pensar que estaba con algo muy diferente a lo que venía leyendo co

I received this book through Goodreads First Reads.

I felt lukewarm about the first two books but Black Moon seemed to improve in terms of interesting storylines and keeping readers guessing on the reveal of the master. I always like a book that makes you wonder about a reveal until it happens. I was impressed by who it ended up being since I thought I had it all figured out by the half way point of the story but I didn't see it coming on who it actually ended up being. I do feel like the ending

Otherwise this was a delightful read, amazing world building, great tension, 0/10 will *love* that ending, 10/10 might consider throwing the book.

Seriously, I loved this one. Especially since the cover is gorgeous and doesn't look like poop. Yes, I, Rian, am a cover whore. I'm so glad I picked this series up on a whim 2 years ago and am so proud to work at a books

Esto más que una reseña es una breve opinión de lo que me pareció el libro en términos muuuuy generales (si ya lo leyeron mandenme directs y fangirleamos!), así que lean tranquilos que no hay spoilers de ninguno de los libros de la saga!
Bueno, qué puedo decirles de Luna Negra?. Primero, lo más importante: hacía rato que no fangirleaba TANTO pero TANTO con un libro. El mundo que Romina creó se

Si la primera parte estuvo bien, y la segunda fue increíble. Esta tercera parte golpeará con fuerza vuestras mentes. Romina hace un despliegue táctico creativo y arremete contra todo, dándonos a una protagonista más madura y segura que en las anteriores partes. No esperéis un final tranquilo, y tened amano la cuarta parte, "Ofiucus asciende" porque la vais a necesitar.

Reseña en vídeo próximamente.

4,5 sobre 5

Solo puedo decir que el último tercio del libro (en concreto los últimos capítulos) me ha dejado sin aire. En mi opinión tanto la trama como los personajes han mejorado un poco más con respecto a Estrella Errante. Estoy deseando leer Ofiucus Asciende.

Menos mal que he esperado para leer este libro, porque con ese final necesito el siguiente ya.

Tenía una idea de las cosas que iban a pasar y no he acertado en nada jejeje, quizá por eso me tenga más intrigada, ahora mismo no sé por dónde puede ir la historia.

Para mi, de momento, mi favorito sigue siendo estrella errante.

I read this book during the time when I'm actually on hiatus for my book-related stuff, including reading, book blogging and actively talking about books on social media. I was so excited when my office's administrative staff passed the package to me with this pretty book in it.

I've always love the Zodiac series. The world building is so extensive and complex, the characters are enthralling and the story is simply soul-gripping.

In Black Moon, we're introduced to another three houses, i.e. Scorpi

Romina does it again! Black Moon did not disappoint. I'm still sitting here after reading feeling as though I've taken some Abyssthe myself. I'm totally buzzing!

I love this galaxy of unique characters Romina has created. Each book takes us to a new constellation, and we get to see more of each house. I love all the worlds!

Another thing I enjoy about these characters is the diversity. Each house has its own characteristics when it comes to appearance, personality, and lifestyle. Rho is so accep

4.5+ Luego de varios días de lectura, pausa para renegar,lectura de nuevo y 3 paquetes te post it azules. Vengo a descargar mi corazón por terminar Luna Negra.

Atrás quedaron los primeros pasos conociendo el Zodiaco y tratando de entender como funciona cada planeta, intentando memorizar esos nombres tan originales y fallando en ese intento más de una vez.

En este momento lo imprescindible es saber en quien confiar y tratar de encontrar la verdad para salvar la galaxia sin morir en el camino.

La verdad es que, si bien me gustó este libro, me costó muchísimo engancharme con la historia en las primeras 100 páginas. Sentía que todo iba muy lento y que no sucedía nada particularmente destacable. Luego de ese punto, la historia fue tomando mejor forma, aunque me da la impresión de que algunas cosas estuvieron de más y dieron la impresión de ser relleno. Entiendo que quizás necesitábamos un impasse antes del gran final que se viene, pero por momentos me resultó algo

Ya casi terminando con esta saga, puedo decir que me está gustando mucho.
Esta tercera parte se lee exageradamente rápido, sin embargo, esperaba un libro lleno de acción y no fue así. La protagonista debatirá si quedarse con Mathias o Hysan, investigará a este nuevo grupo revolucionario y se adentrará en la historia de Ofiucus, no mucho más.
Lo que si, el final es buenísimo y te deja con muchísimas ganas de empezar la cuarta y última parte, que promete un montón.

Seriously pissed about that damn cliff hanger ending. But man this was an explosive third book! It really upped its game for me. So many questions that were swirling through my head have finally been answered or the answer is unraveling and it just blew my mind!

I love that in each book we get to see another Zodiac planet. I love learning about the people and their cultures. The Tomorrow Party really drew me in with its ideals. I so want their goal to be realized, but it

Quizá no tenga tanta acción como los anteriores, pero es el libro en el que conocemos a fondo todo el mundo del zodiaco, el cual es buenísimo! Me encantó que vamos visitando cada constelación y se nos explica lo más relevante de cómo se gobierna, los valores de sus ciudadanos y algún que otro chisme.

I’m going to talk about the normal non-spoiler-y stuff first and then everything else is going in a spoiler because I need to geek out about it.
