From the Publisher
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
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.
