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.

"Therese Plummer gives prominence to the emotions of four teens in her narration, which is fitting because itÕs their emotions that set them apart. Marked by dots on their wrists, the four are brought together by the humans who serve the alien invaders. The story is told by one of the girls, Dol, who, like the other three, was a baby on the day the alien technology emitted a pulse that killed most of the population. Plummer maintains an undercurrent of uncertainty and restrained suspense as the four teens seek answers to the question of why they survived and what their destiny will be. She adopts an impassive but nicely unexaggerated electronic voice for the reports that end each chapter. J.E.M. © AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine"
