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.



Review

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!
