Description
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, 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. As she flees 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 Southeast Asia in search of this missing child, Dol's dreams, feelings and fears collide in an epic showdown that will change more than just four lives — and stop one heart forever.
In this riveting sequel to Icons, filled with nonstop 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.

        Following Icons (2013), the Icon Children run for their lives while the mysteries behind the alien invaders unravel. With only the briefest of recaps, the narration drops the readers straight into action. Dol, the other three fleeing Icon Children, and their mysterious mercenary guide, Fortis, aren't flying a Chopper; they're crashing it. Evading the extraterrestrials so they can use their special powers to destroy the growing Icons-alien technology deadly to all but these teens and used to control the human population-the ragtag band on the run encounters cool locations such as an underground mountain bunker and Eastasia. They move with a specific purpose: Dol's dreams are visited by a fifth Icon Child, and they wish to find her. That is, if there really is a fifth. The extraneous-but-apparently-necessary love triangle among Dol, Ro (childhood best friend) and Lucas (new hot guy) is shoehorned in, as the nonstop plot doesn't leave much room for emotional arcs or character development. Continuing from Icons, nifty top-secret documents appearing between chapters flesh out the invasion-this time they're frequently transcripts of communications between Earth and the invaders, pre-invasion. These documents explicitly reference science-fiction classics-a bonus for genre fans-and keep readers a step ahead of the characters. Last-minute twists create a cliffhanger.A fast, fun read for fans of the first. (Science fiction. 12 & up)

        Grades 7-11 Stohl continues the story begun in Icons (2013) of four young revolutionaries in a future driven by aliens who can stop human hearts at will. Doloria, Furo, Lucas, and Tima are Icon children, immune to the power of the aliens and increasingly aware of their responsibility to act in defense of humanity. Doloria is torn between her love for Furo, with whom she spent her childhood in a California mission, and Lucas, whose corrupt politician mother was the primary enemy in the first book. Although the four have found safety of sorts in a resistance outpost, Dol becomes haunted by visions of a fifth Icon child who addresses her as sister. Her search for this girl takes the group to Southeast Asia, where they encounter the quirky monk Buddha Bill and discover their true origins and parents. Interspersed cryptic communications between government officials gradually reveal a secret and heinous plot, and an abrupt and enigmatic ending guarantees at least one more title in the series. It may not stand alone, but it feeds the continuing hunger for fast-paced tales of dystopia. HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: The series many fans will be glad to have this one while they look forward to the next.(Reprinted with permission of Booklist, copyright 2014, American Library Association.)
