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.
Best-selling author Margaret Stohl delivers the first audiobook 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.

I would try Therese Plummer again. I won't be reading the next in the series.
After this book, I listened to Dangerous Creatures by Margaret Stohl and Kami Garcia. Then I read Unbreakable by Kami Garcia.
I don't think she brought anything extra, but I enjoyed her voice.
All of them. They were awful, one-dimensional, and poorly fleshed-out. They were like cardboard cut outs whose actions betrayed none of the emotions the author told us they were having.
The story itself was so rushed that it felt like a bad movie adaptation of a good book, only this was the book. At least if they make it into a movie, there's really nothing here to cut out or rush. Honestly, I've never returned an Audible book, but I'm tempted to return this one.
I LOVED "Icons" and "Idols" until I got to the ending of the latter. I hope there is another book coming out in this series and that wasn't the ending!
