Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 8 Up–Seventeen years ago, Dol's parents were among the billions killed on The Day. Since then, Dol and her best friend, Ro, have grown up in the Grasslands, protected and kept hidden in a peaceful mission. But things change on Dol's 17th birthday, when Embassy soldiers kill the Padre and capture Dol and Ro. Held captive by the Embassy's alien ambassador, the teens meet Lucas and Tima, both of whom have similar markings on their wrists as Ro and Dol. The four learn that they are Icon children who possess the supernatural ability to read and control emotions. Icons has a promising start, slows considerably in the middle, and gets only slightly more exciting by the end. “Top secret” and “Classified” documents appear between the chapters to provide necessary background information about the new alien-controlled planet. The four protagonists are difficult to care about. Two love triangles feel forced as only Ro seems to really feel anything for anyone else. The premise, while original, is confusing at times and requires infinite patience from readers, who will wonder far too long what the point is. For another alien-takeover story with excellent world-building, suggest Rick Yancey's The 5th Wave (Putnam, 2013).–Leigh Collazo, Ed Willkie Middle School, Fort Worth, TXα(c) Copyright 2013.

From Booklist

Stohl’s dystopian California harbors a corrupt government, a teeming underclass who slave away in the Hole to serve that government, and the mysterious Icon children: individuals who survived a horrific alien attack on Earth that stopped all power sources and shut down cities all over the world. Why did Doloria, a Weeper, and Furo, a Rager, survive when everyone else in their cities perished? Dol and Ro, raised in the countryside by the padre of a deserted mission, have been kept in the dark as to the power of their uncontrollable emotions. Now 17, they are captured by the Embassy, jailed, and interrogated as the Ambassador and her henchmen try to harness their unique gifts. There they meet two other Icon children, one of whom happens to be the Ambassador’s son. 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. HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: Stohl is the best-selling coauthor of the Beautiful Creatures novels (the first one is about to become a major motion picture), and fans will be chomping at the bit for this one. Grades 7-11. --Debbie Carton
