Book Rewind Review: The Evaporation of Sofi Snow by Mary Weber
The Evaporation of Sofi Snow by Mary Weber was released back in 2017, and we at BookCrushin are here to share back list reviews for Book Rewind…let’s call this a Flashback Friday instead of TBT, OK? Mary’s newest release To Best the Boys was just released, which made me want to check out her backlist. Check out my thoughts below!
The Evaporation of Sofi Snow is an ambitious sci-fi that’s a little Ready Player One, a little Unearthed, and a lot post apocalyptic. I picked it up in anticipation of meeting Mary and I am so glad I did!
I love a good post-apocalyptic story and miss the genre. We just don’t have as many nowadays. Sofi Snow is a gamer who lives in a future where Earth is ruled by corporations (sound familiar?) after WWIV. After a game goes terribly wrong, Sofi’s brother, Shilo, is killed and she’s taken the blame. Except she’s sure she saw him taken away by aliens from the ice planet meant to solve our global warming issues (and serve to benefit the alien race…). Now she’s on the run as an accused murderer, headed to Delonese to find her brother. Her only ally is Miguel, a Delonese ambassador she’s not particularly fond of.
The story revolves around Sofi and Miguel on an action packed adventure to rescue Shilo and clear Sofi’s name. Along the way there’s romance, awesome secondary characters, and some serious family dynamics
This book was fast and fun and I’m invested while also appreciating that we got some answers in this book. The ending was just enough to satisfy and keep me wanting more. Good thing it’s a duology!
