really liked it

This was a really enjoyable book. I haven’t read many sci-fi books and I found this book to be really good. I could very much see this book as a movie. At first the terminology was a bit confusing, such as the Day, the Icons, and the Lords. The plot involves the Lords which are essentially aliens (never have been seen) have come to earth and using Icons (giant structures that possess a power to kill) they have taken over the earth on the Day. Not everyone is dead and the rest have been allowed to live their lives to a lesser extent, with some people enslaved and forced to work on the Lord’s projects (which are unknown). Certain cities were destroyed completely and are known as Silent Cities. The other cities are run by Embassies that are led by Ambassandors. However, there are those that survived the power from the Icons. This book did explain some things such as the basics through the plot and transcripts but a lot of questions are still left. Such as is there more children with gifts? What are the projects? What do the Lords look like? What do the Lords want? I would like to point out that I hated the names of the characters. I liked the sassy-ness of Dol and the powers of Dol, Ro, and Lucas. I didn’t quite understand Tima’s power. Dol and Ro have a strong friendship and a romance that doesn’t truly develop. The romance seemed a little forced with Dol and Lucas and I would have liked more of a natural feel to it though I was rooting for those two. Though every emotions the four of them feel seemed real and realistic.
