The Novel's Court (7)

Hey Chroniclers! Today is Tuesday and more books have been released into the world. The Novel's Court is a weekly meme hosted by me where I put a debut novel through a trial to see whether it's Guilty (readable) or Not Guilty (non-readable). In this case we want them to be Guilty, so let's get on with it!

Icons by Margaret Stohl! 

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.

Time for Court!

The Story: I can't lie this sounds amazing and knowing the author it must be really freaking epic! It sounds like something I'd love, aside from the relationship, but I can get into it. 

The Cover: I also love the cover so much! The city with the light, the yellow on top of the blue. It just seems like there's a lot going on and you can't stop looking at it.

The Verdict: Guilty! I'm pretty sure this is already on my wishlist and if it's not then I should go add it now. I really do want to read this and might be getting it soon!
