Praise for Idols:—Booklist
"[Idols] feeds the continuing hunger for fast-paced tales of dystopia...The series many fans will be glad to have this one while they look forward to the next."
"Continuing from Icons, nifty top-secret documents appearing between chapters flesh out the invasion... [They] 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."—Kirkus Reviews
Praise for Icons:
"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."
"Dol's narrative voice is particularly vivid . . . Will keep readers engrossed."
"Stohl's dystopia is well-written and well-structured. Action balances with character and world development, and interspersed documents reference deeper mysteries, gradually hinting at how the 'icon children' came to be. The multi-layered characters are mostly sympathetic, believable flawed and driven..."
"Epic in scale and exquisite in detail -- a haunting futuristic fable of loss and love."
Ally Condie, #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Matched trilogy
"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 ofThe Magicians
"Margaret Stohl is a genius when it comes to characters and their emotions. ICONS had me hooked on the first page, and I can't wait to read the sequel!"—
Richelle Mead, New York Times bestselling author of the Vampire Academy and Bloodlines series
"An action-packed, smart thriller that shows an excitingly different side of Stohl's writing and opens up a fascinating new world."
Holly Black, New York Times bestselling author of the Modern Faerie Tales series
"The ultimate compliment I can give this book: I hate that it was written by someone else. It's just awesome. I hope this one gets made into a movie."—
