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.

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.
