Ready to meet more of the shining stars of our Chaos and Cosmos campaign?! We’re shouting about our incredible Fire signs today: To Sleep in a Sea of Stars by Christopher Paolini, Burning Roses by S. L. Huang, and Unconquerable Sun by Kate Elliott.
Why are they Fire signs? We don’t know, ask publicity team members and astrology wizards Laura Eztkorn, Giselle Gonzalez, and Anna Merz.
“Aries are passionate, very ‘head first, eyes closed, can’t lose’–which is also very Kira, the protagonist of To Sleep in a Sea of Stars. It’s all about courage and determination for them. Which you’ll need when your area of space starts to fill with angry aliens…”
To Sleep in a Sea of Stars by Christopher Paolini
During a routine survey mission on an uncolonized planet, Kira finds an alien relic. At first she’s delighted, but elation turns to terror when the ancient dust around her begins to move. As war erupts among the stars, Kira is launched into a galaxy-spanning odyssey of discovery and transformation. First contact isn’t at all what she imagined, and events push her to the very limits of what it means to be human. While Kira faces her own horrors, Earth and its colonies stand upon the brink of annihilation. Now, Kira might be humanity’s greatest and final hope . . .
“Sagittarius are empathetic, pick up on peoples social energies, and selfless with their actions. But look their symbol is the archer and we cannot NOT tag Burning Roses when one of the heroes (Hou Yi) is an archer.”
Burning Roses by S. L. Huang
Rosa, also known as Red Riding Hood, is done with wolves and woods. Hou Yi the Archer is tired, and knows she’s past her prime. They would both rather just be retired, but that’s not what the world has ready for them. When deadly sunbirds begin to ravage the countryside, threatening everything they’ve both grown to love, the two must join forces. Now blessed and burdened with the hindsight of middle age, they begin a quest that’s a reckoning of sacrifices made and mistakes mourned, of choices and family and the quest for immortality.
“Oh Leos. So ready to dominate, insecure but also willing own the spotlight. No one gives off that sunny, lion-esque, dominant Leo energy like Sun and her mother Eirene in Unconquerable Sun.”
Unconquerable Sun by Kate Elliott
Princess Sun has finally come of age. Growing up in the shadow of her mother, Eirene, has been no easy task. The legendary queen-marshal did what everyone thought impossible: expel the invaders and build Chaonia into a magnificent republic, one to be respected—and feared. But the cutthroat ambassador corps and conniving noble houses have never ceased to scheme—and they have plans that need Sun to be removed as heir, or better yet, dead.
