Availability: Ready to download

On an Earth-like planet called Astrogea, people are tattooed at birth with their zodiac signs, which dictate how they look, where they live and with whom they associate. This categorization has resulted in some hostilities between people of different signs or groups of signs, but no one is more disdained than the Cuspians—those born between signs who don’t strongly identif On an Earth-like planet called Astrogea, people are tattooed at birth with their zodiac signs, which dictate how they look, where they live and with whom they associate. This categorization has resulted in some hostilities between people of different signs or groups of signs, but no one is more disdained than the Cuspians—those born between signs who don’t strongly identify with either. Astrogean private investigator Margo Ramm is summoned by Dermot Justice, a wealthy, ailing politician, to find some priceless pieces of art that have gone missing from his home. As Margo investigates, she finds that there may have been greater crimes committed than art theft—perhaps even a murder.

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book and want to get into book two before my free kindle trial ends! I wonder how authors who write astrological fiction deal with getting it read by the public as it is even difficult to search for as a genre. The planet the series is set on is basically earth, having all the planets and signs of our solar system which makes it easy referencing. I loved a lot about this world, the accurate descriptions of the traits of the characters signs, the beautiful Villa Harmony, I thoroughly enjoyed this book and want to get into book two before my free kindle trial ends! I wonder how authors who write astrological fiction deal with getting it read by the public as it is even difficult to search for as a genre. The planet the series is set on is basically earth, having all the planets and signs of our solar system which makes it easy referencing. I loved a lot about this world, the accurate descriptions of the traits of the characters signs, the beautiful Villa Harmony, calling the dates after the constellations instead of our month names, the awesome tribute to the sun's longest day - the overture of the gemini concerto complete with awesome zodiac firework display (my favourite part of the book, i re-read it 3 times) the zodiac topiary, little descriptions such as ' a Taurean with overly-gelled hair that stuck up like horns', it was a great book for an astrologer to sink into. I enjoyed the characters and plotline, the author is either a proficient astrologer or has done pretty thorough research - only a couple of things interrupted my flow. (non-astrologers need not read the following): 'capricorn and aquarius in outer planets' should be'outer planets in capricorn and aquarius', the ascendant counted as a planet along with mars in the chart of 'handsome' August Tal, (who rarely was mentioned without the adjective). we're told he has venus and saturn in taurus but later that although he is a sun virgo, his mercury is in taurus and his venus is in capricorn. As mercury can only be within 28 degrees of the sun and therefore the same sign or that either side of it, and venus can only be within 78 degrees, none of these is possible. Similarly of Castor, the male gemini twin, it's stated 'Mercury’s in retrograde and it’s on the cusp of Capricorn'. And his sister is gemini retrograde, whatever that means: “She’s a Gemini,” Clem said as if that explained everything. “In retrograde, which she’ll be the first to tell you,” Margo added. Anyway, i can't wait to read book two...and three...and four... oh, if you like this, a book along the same lines is Zodiac by Sam Wilson

    Recently, i've sort of lost my interest in reading since i've been preoccupied with work. So I was looking for a really good book to pick things up and keep the ball rolling. This book did it for me. At first I was skeptic with the plot, but then I figured that a fresh plot would be a better pick than the same old romantic/adventure plot that's been circulating around lately. And so I gave it a try, and now I have a new favorite author. Heads up to Kaye Freemartin!

And so I gave it a try, and now I have a new favorite author. Heads up to Kaye Freemartin! The book was definitely fun because it kept prodding at my brain. I kept wondering who did what and why. It might drive other readers crazy, but I really loved the brain tease. The only thing that I found to be a bit annoying (at first) was the constant reference to the characteristics of the zodiac, but i've found that it was essential to the storyline... that it actually held the whole book together and made it more interesting than your average story. This is definitely a must read.

A very original story, based on the signs of the zodiac, each person is unique. I really liked Margo, and the writing style. Kaye Freeman is very informative and pens a very unique and interesting story. I look forward to more in this series.

    A mystery-thriller set in another solar system, where people are categorized at birth based on their zodiac sign. The lead character is a strong and smart, yet vulnerable female detective, working with an engaging and odd cast of suspects. I have a hard time writing reviews of mysteries because I don't want to give too much away, but the author did a great job of tying up loose ends while introducing a few enticing details about Book 2.
