Gr 8 Up—Dol and the Icon Children escape to Southeast Asia in search of another child who might share their superhuman qualities. Readers who haven't read the first book, Icons (2013), will be best served by starting at the beginning. Fans of the series will rush through this fast-paced sci-fi adventure and breathlessly await the third installment.
With one Icon destroyed, Doloria and her fellow Icon Children embark on a journey to "save the world" from the aliens who've taken over. In search of a fifth Icon Child Dol has seen in her dreams, they travel across an ocean to the SEA Colonies. Interspersed investigation notes add dramatic irony to this tense, if overblown, sequel to Icons.
