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 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.

ICONS pulled me in nearly immediately, with the fascinating premise of a futuristic world in which humanity is ruled by a group of aliens with technology that can make hearts stop. There is so much to love about the book: the vivid characters, the enticing mystery, the excellent pacing and even the small details, all well done and enjoyable to read. Full of action, tension, humor and the occasional romantic moment, ICONS has something for everybody.
