Icons by Margaret Stohl

Release Date: May 7th

 

 

Your heart beats only with their permission.

Everything changed on The Day. The day the windows shattered. The day the power stopped. The day Dol's family dropped dead. The day Earth lost a war it didn't know it was fighting.

Since then, Dol has lived a simple life in the countryside -- safe from the shadow of the Icon and its terrifying power. Hiding from the one truth she can't avoid.

She's different. She survived. Why?

When Dol and her best friend, Ro, are captured and taken to the Embassy, off the coast of the sprawling metropolis once known as the City of Angels, they find only more questions. While Ro and fellow hostage Tima rage against their captors, Dol finds herself drawn to Lucas, the Ambassador's privileged son. But the four teens are more alike than they might think, and the timing of their meeting isn't a coincidence. It's a conspiracy.

Within the Icon's reach, Dol, Ro, Tima, and Lucas discover that their uncontrollable emotions -- which they've always thought to be their greatest weaknesses -- may actually be their greatest strengths.

Bestselling author Margaret Stohl delivers the first book in a heart-pounding series set in a haunting new world where four teens must piece together the mysteries of their pasts -- in order to save the future.

    If aliens came, I'm not really sure what I'd do.... I'd hope they were some peaceful aliens, otherwise I'd be in trouble. I don't think I'd be a good survivalist. Lol

    If aliens came I would deduce whether they are hostile or friendly. Never want to run up to an alien with a big welcoming grin only to be blasted away by some sort of alien weaponry.

    I'd hope they are friendly, and hope that one of them ended up being like Daemon from Obsidian!

    I would find out if they were friendly and befriend them becoming a famous cultural anthropologist and go down in history!!! OR if they were unfriendly gather as much food and water as possible and run for it!!!!!!!

    If aliens came I hope they would be friendly. If not I would hope that the world doesn't end up like Falling Skies. Yikes. Humans would have to stick together and find someway to discover a weakness to overthrow the invaders.

    I would figure out if they were friendly or not, but would try to be prepared to defend my family if they aren't.

    I don't have an extra minute in my day to deal with aliens so if aliens came I would probably just ignore them and hope for the best!

    If aliens came, I think I'd kind of be freaked out... maybe. I mean, I'd love to see if they did in fact have technological advances, and what kind of food they might have brought with them. After reading the Pendragon series I'm suddenly interested in this lol.
