Today, we are thrilled to be kicking off the official blog tour for Icons by Margaret Stohl, the first solo novel from the co-author of Beautiful Creatures. At the bottom of this post, you’ll find a link to the entire blog tour, plus your chance to win a copy of the book. But first, here’s our review:

Icons_officialIcons is an action-packed, science fiction adventure loaded with romantic tension and plot twists at every turn.

Stohl leaves behind the Southern Gothic setting of Beautiful Creatures for a futuristic landscape, in which four teens could be the key to humanity’s survival against an oppressive alien regime.

Interweaving artifact-like transcripts and articles with prose, Stohl masterfully crafts a story rich with action and tension. And though the plot may be a far cry from the quiet streets of Gatlin, Stohl’s characters are just as strong as the cast of Beautiful Creatures.

And here’s another reason fans of Beautiful Creatures should take note of Icons: while this book ventures away from the paranormal genre and dives head-first into science fiction, there is still plenty of romance and plenty of magic to satisfy fans longing for Ethan and Lena.

Icons is in stores May 7th.

    Unlike a lot of people, I really like the Beautiful Creatures series. So when I heard the authors were soloing it, I knew I would be reading both of their efforts. I can’t wait for Icons! Thanks for the review, and for participating in the tour!

  2. Sounds incredible! I’ve been wanting to dabble into science fiction a bit more than Ender’s Game & Across the Universe (both excellent!).

    So I appreciate your review and the giveaway!
