    1. Was that the end Or is there another book I couldn t quite figure it out cause some things ended and others weren t wrapped up If there is another book I doubt I will read it because I don t really care about this story enough to devote time to it However I don t regret reading this It was different and entertaining even though I felt lost half the time trying to figure out what was happening If you like Sci fi, dystopian, fantasy romance then at least take a look at this series.Rating 3 StarsC [...]

    2. Love triangles are messy, unoriginal, annoying, and unnecessary, in my opinion Especially if the romance is weak to begin with like in the case of Dol, Ro, and Lucas The romance was too weak and inconsistent for Dol to feel so much turmoil over it Lucas and Dol kissed once every 50 pages, but other then that she was barely aware of his presence Do you call that love I don t And Ro Do was so sure that she only felt friendship for him in Icons, but now she has all these mushy gushy feelings spewin [...]

    3. Warning Rageful rant ahead, may contain major spoilers But I don t.I can t.I can t stop myself and I don t want to.You have to choose, I think, You have chosen, I think.Choose Lucas.Slowly, I pull the tie on my binding.We ve never finished this And I want to be with him What are we talking about You guessed it A love triangle.If that alone didn t make you want to gouge your eyes out trying reading four hundred pages of this shit As you may have guessed, I have a lot to say.Sit tight kids, this i [...]

    4. Great story, even if it was a bit light on character development Very philosophical The ending got a bit convoluted and the epilogue was out of context with the rest of the book but overall it was a good ending to the duology This ended up better than Icons by just a hair.Therese Plummer did the narration and she was excellent.

    5. Review courtesy of All Things Urban Fantasy.Whereas ICONS was a fast paced, rush of a novel, IDOLS is a slow burn, with bits and pieces offered to the reader throughout until the big reveal and cliffhanger at the end While not a bad thing, my expectation was for a higher level of action, and I was mildly disappointed at the resulting slowness As the four Icon children, Dol, Ro, Lucas and Tima, take a long journey with Fortis, you get the feeling of waiting for things to happen to them, whereas p [...]

    6. This book was pretty bland for me The way the book was written was just sot engaging The book is very plot focused which should be a really good thing but ends up leaving no room for the reader character connection which is ironic considering what this series is about Like, everything is just always happening so fast and there are rarely moments where the characters ever have actual moments together and connect Every now and then it seemed like the author was suddenly like oh yeah I need to add [...]

    7. Hmm I was not a fan of this book I breezed through a lot of paragraphs and I felt like this book was just too wordy This whole 400 page book could have been written in half of that and still have beenjust as good And then to think that there is a third book or even fourth coming out What will be the main goal of those books Book one, Icons, had a plot better than this Icons kept me intrigued and interested I felt like this was a shoddy book I think Margaret rushed to finish this book which ended [...]

    8. Malgr quelques longueurs, j ai trouv ce tome plus dynamique et surprenant.La complexit du premier n est plus ressenti ici, de nombreuses r v lations nous sont faites Cela nous aide mieux appr hender cet univers de science fiction dystopie YA.Les personnages sont presque m connaissable, je ne peux en dire plus ici Nous sentons une certaine tension sous adjacente qui nous parvient jusqu aux derni res pages, moment de la lib ration.Comme toujours, la fin rime avec une longue attente interminable Do [...]

    9. So being honest it took me awhile to finish this book, almost two weeks, and it s not because it wasn t good, it just didn t keep my interest the entire time I do enjoy the world of Icons and the overall idea behind it There are a lot of interesting facts, but in Idols I feel like the story slowed down a lot and that when the book should ve had a steady pick up pace it didn t I did enjoy the story itself, the premise is enticing, and I felt like in this book we got to see a emotional side of D [...]

    10. There s an enormous twist at the end of this one that renders the rest of the book as well as its predecessor, Icons, completely irrelevant It s almost as if Stohl had planned for a much longer series and had to cobble together a half hearted finale on the fly Idols is a hot mess of a book, rife with baffling character interactions, even worse world building, and action that builds to an expected conclusion and then suddenly doesn t Margaret Stohl writes beautifully I loved Tima and Dol and the [...]

    11. I liked this book as much as icons It made me think about what is humanity and what we all do to survive Dol is the essence of what it means to be human The power of trust and the way it could lead us astray is told beautifully.

    12. So I watch while my world spins out of control.After destroying the Icon in The Hole Los Angeles , Dol and her friends search out the other Icons so that they can destroy them and save the world from the Lords But when Dol s dreams about a little jade girl grow increasingly alarming, the group journeys all the way to the SEA colonies Asia to help her figure them out This little girl could hold the key to freeing the world.This book had very few parts that interested me and my attention I was jus [...]

    13. Oh boy I liked the ideas brought up in the first book, Icons, but worried that the story would fail under its own weight And fail it did The second book is just a mess With all the CONSTANT inner monologue from the main protagonist, you d think we would understand the character s motivations, but we don t I don t know these characters AT ALL It was really frustrating The book was also WAY too long 400 pages for a YA dystopian Also failed similar to the Divergent and Fifth Wave series in that it [...]

    14. First book was better interesting Defiantly expected a bad ass endingThis book had a lot of mystery, i feel like i still have questions and I ve read it all The love triangle is pretty cheesy at times thoughAnd it was cool to see the alien s side of the story in some parts.I did like this book and recommend it to readers who like scyfy and mystery.

    15. 3 stars only because of the adventure and it kept me in suspense throughout but awful, traitorous scheming if the series had been told from any other perspective it could have been less dystopian society with children and powers and evil and just the world is ending and these kids canake it better disliked the negative ending and false hopes planted.

    16. I never knew how much I am attached to the characters until Furo is saying goodbye It s like having a friend you don t know you like until they say goodbye He smiles at me, sadly That was never what I wanted, Dol You were all I wanted

    17. I was absolutely heartbroken when Ro had to die even though it was necessary, and how he did it for her almost made me cry.

    18. I m left feeling very confused Was that the end Is there going to be another book The story line itself is good but it feels extremely unfinished to me.

    19. The story went in a different direction than I expected I did not like the ending It made me wonder if a third book had been planned It just felt anti climactic.

    20. This book was SO GOOD D I m happy Dol ended up with who she ended up with, and not the one she was originally with That s all I m gonna say

    21. Not quite as choppy as the first book Icons, but both suffer from the shifts between journals captured information, and the action happening with Dolly While the journal etc insertions give the reader information, the fact that they re in tiny pieces, plus so abrupt, plus that you end up knowing than Dolly does and you re waiting for her to catch up, is frustrating It also pulls you out of Dolly, turning the reader into an observer rather than experiencing things with her.The premise of the fi [...]

    22. Every day is a battle, since the Lords came Every day is a battle for everyone I had no expectations when going into Idols While Icons was not my favorite read I feel like Idols is a step in the right direction, if only because it kicked Dol so hard to the ground there is no way to go but up We got scarce scenes of that pesky romance which only seemed to bring the book down, hurrah for that We also got a better picture of the entity that makes the rules for the big bad aliens Overall Idols was a [...]

    23. When I read Icons by author Margaret Stohl I had mixed feelings on the novel The sci fi portion of it was pretty badass and the idea of the Icon Children was pretty unique The way that the novel ended definitely left room for a potentially awesome sequel Don t get me wrong, I ve been a huge fan of Margaret Stohl s ever since I read her co written novel Beautiful Creatures, but Idols was missing the same punch that Beautiful Creatures packed Still I was interested in getting to find out where Dol [...]

    24. If you ve read my progress updates you know how I feel about this book In my final update I said that I was praying the book would get better and to my surprise it did to some extent What I liked about Icons is it wasn t really as pressing about the romantic triangle that was going on I also liked how Stohl wrote but in the second, Idols, both of these factors were brought to another level and not in a good way Before getting to spoiler talk I want to say that if you have read Icons and have bou [...]

    25. The Icons came from the sky They belong to an inhuman enemy They ended our civilization, and they can kill us Most of us Dol, Ro, Tima, and Lucas are the four Icon Children, the only humans immune to the Icon s power to stop a human heart Now that Los Angeles has been saved, things are complicated, and not just because Dol has to choose between Lucas and Ro, the two great loves of her life As she flees to a resistance outpost hidden beneath a mountain, Dol makes contact with a fifth Icon Child, [...]
