by Mary Weber
Publisher: Thomas Nelson
Release Date: June 6th 2017
Genre: Young Adult, Science Fiction, Dystopia
Ever since the Delonese ice-planet arrived eleven years ago, Sofi's dreams have been vivid. Alien. In a system where Earth's corporations rule in place of governments and the humanoid race orbiting the moon are allies, her only constant has been her younger brother, Shilo. As an online gamer, Sofi battles behind the scenes of Earth's Fantasy Fighting arena where Shilo is forced to compete in a mix of real and virtual blood sport. But when a bomb takes out a quarter of the arena, Sofi's the only one who believes Shilo survived. She has dreams of him. And she's convinced he's been taken to the ice-planet.
Except no one but ambassadors are allowed there.
For Miguel, Earth's charming young playboy, the games are of a different sort. As Ambassador to the Delonese, his career has been built on trading secrets and seduction. Until the Fantasy Fight's bomb goes off. Now the tables have turned and he's a target for blackmail. The game is simple: Help the blackmailers, or lose more than anyone can fathom, or Earth can afford.
What a great fantasy novel! Mary Weber has written an amazing trilogy before and this new story is no different. Her writing style is so unique, concise and clear. The world building is creative and tangible and I was sucked right in. The many different topics this fantasy covers are real and tremendous. Sofi is such a relateable character and the relationship she shares with her brother is incredible. I love stories about strong sibling bonds. She is also another broken but strong heroine and that what readers are into right now, because that's how a lot of us feel. We have moments of strength and moments of weakness. We are building stronger futures for ourselves on top of broken or shattered foundations.
This is a fast paced novel like Weber's other novels. She has a way of weaving a story into your mind and making it play out like a movie. This one has a lot of Sci-fi elements like aliens, futuristic worlds and such. Which makes this read one for many. Hovercrafts and transports truly transport the reader into the future and hooked for a ride of their of life.
I felt a strong connection with Sofi and as the main character that is very important to me. I thoroughly enjoyed this and am ready for the sequel like... now please.
I've never actually listened to music before while reading and but I love trying new things! So, I given the setting of The Evaporation of Sofi Snow, I wanted to listen to some Sci-Fi type of music...

An avid high school, middle school, and conference speaker, Mary's passion is helping others find their voice amid a world that often feels too loud. When she's not plotting adventures involving tough girls who frequently take over the world, Mary sings 80's hairband songs to her three muggle children, and ogles her husband who looks strikingly like Wolverine. They live in California which is perfect for stalking L.A. bands, Comic-Con, and the ocean.
