I loved the story line of this book, however the supporting details weren't outstanding and it is also very similar to the "Lorien legacies" series. The book just didn't do enough for five stars. Overall it's a great book, and for anyone who loves a good dystopian novel.

I loved the book. I could barely put it down for a single minute, wanting to know what comes next. The book is completely jam-packed with all my favorite things: betrayal, jealously, a weird, and, honestly, a bit awkward love triangle, and, to top it all off, a total cliff-hanger in the end. The book was like a way better version of The Host by Stephenie Meyer and then added a weird love triangle from Twilight. Absolute amazingness. Can't wait for IDOLS, coming out this July.

Couldn't get into this book really, but the concept was interesting, as were the inserted historical documents. I did like how it was set in a recognizable location. However, I couldn't sympathize with the narrator nor get a hang of the timeline of the plot.

Icons is an extremely original book that ended up hooking me from the first page. The thing that made Icons good was the way that the author brought the characters to life.
The action-packed plot was exciting and the romance in the book made me fully connect with the character. This fast past plot made me want to finish the book quickly. This is from the same author that wrote the Beautiful Creatures series and it has the same sort of feel to it. It takes a while to fully understand what is going on with the aliens, but you eventually get to it. All in all I can't wait to read the next in this alien infested series.

Great book to begin summer with! Action-packed from the very first page, Margaret Stohl brings her character's to life and knows how to pull on her reader's heart strings. An alien invasion story, but it focuses more on the humans reaction to the aliens, as opposed to actually interacting with them. First in a new series!
