Idols (The Icons Series #2) by Margaret Stohl

Ratings: (0)|Views: 82 |Likes:
A thrilling new book series from the #1 bestselling coauthor of Beautiful Creatures, Margaret Stohl. http://theiconsseries.com/

ABOUT THE BOOKS:

ICONS (Book #1)
Everything changed on The Day. The day the Icon appeared in Los Angeles. 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 with fellow survivor Ro-safe from the shadow of the Icon and its terrifying power. Hiding from the one truth she can't avoid.

They're different. They survived. Why?

When the government discovers their secret, they are forced to join faint-hearted Tima and charismatic Lucas in captivity. Called the Icon Children, the four are the only humans on Earth immune to the power of the Icons. Torn between brooding Ro and her evolving feelings for Lucas, between a past and a future, Dol's heart has never been more vulnerable. And as tensions escalate, the Icon Children discover that their explosive emotions-which they've always thought to be their greatest weaknesses-may actually be their greatest strengths.

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

IDOLS (Book #2)
The Icons came from the sky. They belong to an inhuman enemy. They ended our civilization, and they can kill us.
Most of us.

Dol, Ro, Tima, and Lucas are the four Icon Children, and the only humans immune to the Icon's power to stop a human heart. Now that Los Angeles has been saved, things are more complicated - and not just because Dol has to choose between Lucas and Ro, the two great loves of her life. Fleeing to a resistance outpost hidden beneath a mountain, Dol makes contact with a fifth Icon Child, if only through her visions. When Dol and the others escape to south Asia in search of this missing child, Dol's dreams, feelings and fears will meet in an epic showdown that will change more than just four lives -- and stop one heart forever.

In the riveting sequel to Icons, filled with heart-pounding action and compelling romance, bestselling author Margaret Stohl explores what it means to be human and how our greatest weakness can be humanity's strongest chance at survival.

PRAISE FOR ICONS:

"Fans of Stohl's Beautiful Creatures series will find many of the same elements here -- paranormal romance, a fast pace, and intriguing characters -- but within a distinctly science-fiction setting. The strong messages of questioning authority, daring to resist injustice, and loyalty to one's group will resonate with teens who loved The Hunger Games."
—Booklist

"Dol's narrative voice is particularly vivid . . . Will keep readers engrossed."
—Publisher's Weekly

"Stohl's dystopia is well-written and well-structured. Action balances with character and world development, and interspersed documents reference deeper mysteries, gradually hinting at how the 'icon children' came to be. The multi-layered characters are mostly sympathetic, believably flawed and driven..."
—VOYA

"Icons is epic in scale and exquisite in detail-a haunting, futuristic fable of loss and love."
—Ally Condie, author of the #1 New York Times bestseller Matched

"I love this book. It's raw and riveting, a scorched-Earth future vision that feels frighteningly real. It's full of passion and deep truths and the kind of power that people only find when they're driven far, far past their limits." —Lev Grossman, New York Times bestselling author ofThe Magicians

"Margaret Stohl is a genius when it comes to characters and their emotions. ICONS had me hooked on the first page, and I can't wait to read the sequel!" —Richelle Mead, New York Times bestselling author of the Vampire Academy and Bloodlines series

"An action-packed, smart thriller that shows an excitingly different side of Stohl's writing and opens up a fascinating new
