Summary

Summary

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.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Epic in scale and exquisite in detail—a haunting futuristic fable of loss and love.” Ally Condie, #1 New York Times bestselling author
“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
“Dol’s narrative voice is particularly vivid…Will keep readers engrossed.” Publishers Weekly
“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
