"A year ago, International Assembly delegate Suyana Sapaki barely survived an attempt on her life. Now she's climbing the social ranks, dating the American Face, and poised for greatness. She has everything she wants, but the secret that drives her can't stay hidden forever. When she quickly saves herself from a life-threatening political scandal, she gains a new enemy: the public eye. Daniel Park was hoping for the story of a lifetime. And he got her. He's been following Suyana for a year. But what do you do when this person you thought you knew has vanished inside the shell, and dangers are building all around you?"--Amazon.com.… (altro)

Well. That kinda ripped my heart out. Somehow managed to one-up Persona!

Longer review to follow. Thanks to Simon & Schuster and Saga Press for the review copy! ( )

Loved it. LOVED it. Even more than the first one, because here we plunge into the full throttle 24-7 onion-layers of public-eye politics that Persona referenced, but never had a chance to fully explore. And it's a bounteous playground for Valentine's devil-in-the-details style, as a flick of her prose gives you snippets of stark meaning in each movement and description. Everything's so fraught the finale almost caught me by surprise in its coming, and then it pulled the rug right out from under me in the best and most heartbreaking way. (Oh Suyana, the wounds you give yourself.) ( )

I was really excited to read this sequel to Persona. The books are set in a near-future where those who represent their country in the stage of international politics are caught up in a world of micromanaged appearances and constant media scrutiny and personal relationships contracted for political gain.

In Persona, Suyana, the delegate for the United Amazonian Rainforest Confederation goes on the run with an undercover photographer after an assassination attempt. Icon is set a year later. It doesn't begin with anything as explosive as assassination - out of context, its plot developments would likely sound a lot less fraught than they actually are. I'm not sure if the stakes are higher here than in Persona or if they're just different - it doesn't really matter. Icon is intense and sharply written, and I couldn't put it down.

In terms of outcomes for the characters, the conclusion is both better and worse than I'd hoped for. And that felt very fitting.

“Elegant,” Closer had proclaimed her new image, and talked about how Suyana had grown up since the Disappearance; being kidnapped had been good for her wardrobe. […] She was in black tonight, too - sleeveless and with a collar that rose at the back of her neck and made her look slightly like an evil queen. Daniel assumed the silhouette was trendy. There was no way Magnus would have let her out of the house in clothes that suggested she was capable of plotting something. ( )
