about the book

Title:  Reclaiming Shilo Snow
Series: Evaporation of Sofi Snow, Book 2
Author: Mary Weber
Publisher: Thomas Nelson Fiction
Release Date:  March 6, 2018
Genre: Young Adult Sci-Fi/Fantasy

She was far more capable than Earth’s leaders had accounted for—and they had no idea what she’d do next.

Known as a brilliant mind that could hack humanity’s darkest secrets, seventeen-year-old Sofi Snow is the most wanted teenager alive. She found her way to the icy, technologically brilliant planet of Delon to find Shilo, the brother everyone but Sofi believes is dead.

But as she and Ambassador Miguel partner to find her brother and warn those on Earth of Delon’s dark designs on humanity, Sofi’s memories threaten to overtake her, distorting everything she holds true. She knows the Delonese kept her in a dark, deceptive place . . . and destroyed a portion of her life. Now, the more they discover of Sofi’s past, the more Sofi feels herself unraveling—as each new revelation has her questioning the very existence of reality.

In this harrowing sequel to The Evaporation of Sofi Snow, Sofi and Miguel must trust each other and discover the secrets locked inside Sofi’s mind as the line between what’s real and what they imagine begins to slip away . . . threatening to take humanity with it.

“And the minute I elevate my life above another’s… is the moment I begin to give away my humanity. And that is the moment we all begin to lose.”

Wow. Just wow. This is a book you can’t put down!

Everything we thought we knew from The Evaporation of Sofi Snow gains new dimension in this sequel – and for each layer we uncover, it seems there are more waiting to be explored. Mary Weber is truly a master at world-building and science fiction/fantasy. And y’all – this isn’t my favorite genre. But in Weber’s hands, the story comes alive and I’m immediately captivated.

We get to see the story unfold through the eyes of Sofi, Miguel, and Inola, a technique that in this case both heightens the suspense and softens our hearts toward each of these three key players. It also allows us to see the story from three different facets, which gives us a trifold look at the puzzle that is Delon as a whole. I think in Reclaiming Shilo Snow, especially with Inola, we get to see beyond the surface mask and into the heart of these characters.

My very favorite part of the story, though, is this: Even though this is science fiction and portrays an imagined future Earth & its associates, its message regarding humanity and our care of each other is timely now. Particularly as it shines a spotlight on the atrocity of human trafficking and our own responsibility – “And even if we’re not partaking, we’re certainly allowing it. Because what are you and I doing to stop it?” Weber reminds us that our greatest weapon in that fight (or any others) is more accessible than we might think.

“…Sofi had maintained compassion. And that was her greatest weapon. A person could change history with that kind of thing.”

Bottom Line: I love this duology, and it’s best to read it as a unit. Because while I loved The Evaporation of Sofi Snow, I LOVED even more the way it all came together in Reclaiming Shilo Snow. Weber’s mastery of the genre and her compassion toward victims of human trafficking shines brightly into the darkness, confirming again that story is a powerful thing. While this isn’t a book that overtly explores faith, there is faith between the lines and a gentle nod to the “unwavering hands of Love” that hold us. This is a riveting duology – so don’t plan to do anything else but READ once you begin! You’ve been warned 😉

(I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book which I received from the publisher. All views expressed are only my honest opinion.)

My Rating: 4.5 stars / Love it!

    I love sci-fantasy books and I need to finish the first book before I can even continue to its sequel. I love strong female leads as well.
