'Three-dimensional characters are well developed and supportive in this heartbreaking sequel of love and triumph. Questions provided by the author make this a welcome title in ethics discussions. Weber's sequel offers timely explorations of themes of family, compassion, genetic engineering, and human trafficking. VERDICT: Highly recommended for sci-fi fans.'
'This spellbinding conclusion to Sofi's story has all the intensity of James Dashner's The Maze Runner, the horror of Rick Yancey's The 5th Wave and an enduring hope that will leave readers inspired to look outside of themselves to see how they can help those in need.'

Im surprised it worked but it really pulled it all together nicely. This duology has a really important message and that comes through it all. Absolutely a fan of Weber. She has a heart for people and it shines through so beautifully. Also a mahogany of a good plot twist. This has all the elements I like! Another hit. Thank you for my copy!
MFurAge: 55-65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Fantastic BookMarch 6, 2018MFurAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Once again I was captivated by Mary Weber and her writing.
I was so drawn into the world of hacking and gaming; a world I've never fully understood and still don't. Yet Mary Weber presents this world in such a way it's easy to imagine. Along with this futuristic world is a world containing aliens.
Now, I'm not one to believe in aliens, but Mary Weber makes it so believable. With her wonderful word pictures and sentence flow, it's easy to imagine there just might be those creatures in our world. Are there really things we don't know going on in the universe?
What would it be like if we were taken over by beings of another world? Who could we trust and what is real?
I enjoyed the suspense, the unstoppable action, the futuristic adventures and the bits of drama with human emotions. There were times I didn't know if what was happening was real or fabricated in Sofi's mind. I also loved the relationships formed and healed in the story, as well as, the good versus evil aspects.
This story has some great quotes, and one of these quotes I find very powerful:
"Your life is precious. So is mine. So are our neighbors', and coworkers' and those who disagree with us. And the minute I elevate my life above another's - the moment I choose mine as more valuable for the survival of humanity - is the moment I begin to give away my humanity. And that is the moment we all begin to lose."
This story also touches on the whole horrible issue of human trafficking. What makes those individuals less valued in our eyes? We need to open our eyes to the struggles going on around us and take a stand. If more of us give voice to this injustice, then it will have less of a hold on our society. Thank you, Mary Weber, for being a voice!
I highly recommend picking this book up.
I received this book from the publisher to read. All opinions are my own.
SuzieNashville, TNAge: 35-44Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Beautiful Message Wrapped in this Sci-Fi/Fantasy SettingFebruary 12, 2018SuzieNashville, TNAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5While I enjoyed The Evaporation of Sofi Snow (you can find my review of book one in this duology here), I adored the finale.
Mary Weber is one of the pre-eminent authors when it comes to world-building in the sci-fi/fantasy genre and Reclaiming Shilo Snow is noexception with plenty of action, intrigue, and head-scratching in the search for the truth. Through the eyes of Sofi, Miguel, and Sofis mom, readers are given a well-rounded picture of Sofis world. The story engaged me from the start and moved at a speedy clip.
Yet, it was the message of this book that shines through the pages the brightest. The message of what sets us apart. What makes humanity, well, human is our ability to love others more than ourselves.
Granted, not everyone does so (neither in the book nor in life) and evil pervades. But in Jesuss own wordsAnd now these three remain: faith, hope, and love. But the greatest of these is love (I Corinthians 13:13).
Weber has managed to wrap the essence of that verse within the covers of a fictional story with aliens, gamers, corrupt leadership, and a girl and boy who have the ability to save earth.
