Icarus

March 26

Illustrated cover for Icarus. The cover is a medium blue, and at the center is a black line rendering of a Greek-style statue head, but the head is broken so that the eyes and right ear are missing. The white silhouette of a person falls from a flat yellow sun and looks like it is about to impact what's left of the statue head. There are additional flat silhouettes around this, including a crescent moon, several stars, foliage, an eye, a bird, a hand, and tear drops in various shades of yellow, orange, and pink.Icarus by K.

Icarus Gallagher is a thief.

He steals priceless art and replaces it with his father’s impeccable forgeries. For years, one man—the wealthy Mr. Black—has been their target, revenge for his role in the death of Icarus’s mother. To keep their secret, Icarus adheres to his own strict rules to keep people, and feelings, at bay: Don’t let anyone close. Don’t let anyone touch you. And, above all, don’t get caught.

Until one night, he does. Not by Mr. Black, but by his mysterious son, Helios, now living under house arrest in the Black mansion. Instead of turning Icarus in, Helios bargains for something even more dangerous—a friendship that breaks every single one of Icarus’s rules.

As reluctance and distrust become closeness and something more, they uncover the bars of the gilded cage that has trapped both of their families for years. One Icarus is determined to escape. But his father’s thirst for revenge shows no sign of fading, and soon it may force Icarus to choose: the escape he’s dreamed of, or the boy he’s come to love. Reaching for both could be his greatest triumph—or it could be his downfall.
