Publisher's Description

"I’ll read anything Mary Weber writes. More please!" —JAY ASHER, New York Times bestselling author of Thirteen Reasons Why

The line between virtual & reality is about to EVAPORATE.

In a world where skycams follow your every move and the details of your life are uploaded each hour, Sofi knows that her eyes are the only caring ones watching her brother, Shilo. As an online gamer, she works behind the scenes to protect Shilo as he competes in a mix of real and virtual blood sport. But when a bomb destroys the gaming arena, she is helpless to rescue him—and certain that his disappearance was no accident. Despite all the evidence of Shilo’s death, Sofi ’s nightmares tell her he is still alive. Could the dreams be truer than what everyone else claims?

For Miguel—a charming young playboy from Earth—the games are of a different sort. As Ambassador to the Delonese, his career has been built on trading secrets. In the aftermath of the bombing, he fears he has lost Sofi forever, even as he wonders if she is really who she seems. Now he’s a target for blackmail. The game is simple: help the blackmailers or lose more than anyone can fathom—or than Earth can afford.

Step into a universe of diverse characters, alien invasions, and high-stakes video gaming. Because when technology reigns, nothing is as true as it seems—and fantasy can become reality after all.

Editorial Reviews

'Readers will wonder what will happen with each turn of the page. Suspenseful and romantic, this intense story should intrigue teen and adult fans of Caragh O’Brien’s Vault of Dreamers series.'
'A cool vision of future Earth that realistically reflects an increasingly multicultural world.'
'A creepy, imaginative, plot-driven dystopian tale (with diversity) for fans of sci-fi or Suzanne Collins’ Hunger Games. The characters, story and writing sizzle throughout.'
'Weber’s world-building, complete with political overtones, betrayal, blackmail, sexual tension, genetic testing, and questions regarding the sanctity of human life vs. technical advancement, will leave readers lost in thought and pondering the outcome of Sofi’s mission.'
'The fan-fight world itself is intriguing, and as Sofi deals with Miguel and tries to recover Shilo, this offers the best of both science fiction and romance.'

    This review was written for The Evaporation of Sofi Snow.
    3.5 stars- This is the first book I have read by Mary Weber. I have seen her "Storm Siren" series but have not had the privilege of reading it yet. The premise of "The Evaporation of Sofi Snow" is very interesting and I think will click with a lot of teenagers. I felt it to be sort of a mix of The Hunger Games and The Lunar Chronicles with the added bonus of intense online gaming in the mix. I enjoyed this story and thought the writing was well done and Mary Weber's futuristic world was very creative. The idea of a mysterious planet suddenly appearing in the sky and an alien people arriving to help Earth recover from another World War is intriguing. Are the Delonese people friend or foe? The relationship between Sofi and her mom is also thought provoking. Does Sofi's mom really care about Sofi and her brother Shilo or is her career truly her priority? The main characters Sofi and Miguel are both trying to muddle their way through this dystopian society and figure out who they really are. I feel like Mary Weber's characters will click well with today's teenagers and all they go through. Through the story and through the choices each character made I could see a lot of opportunities for further discussion- easy ways to bring up morality, integrity and God. Admittedly, I did feel the story was a bit over-sexual at times in the dialogue, descriptions and actions of the characters. This is why I gave it 3.5 stars. I have read many Christian novels where the main characters had promiscuous lifestyles before they changed and grew in the story, but these were books written for adults. I was just surprised by some of the innuendo in this book and felt it might be a bit more than what I would want my teenage daughter reading about. Although I admit I don't have a teenage daughter so maybe I'm off base in my assessment. I would love to hear what other moms think.

    I do look forward to reading the next book in this series and finding out what happens next. I think this would be a good book to read with your teenager so you can have an open discussion about the book and it's contents.

    I received a copy of this book for free. I was not required to post a positive review and the views and opinions expressed are my own.

    This review was written for The Evaporation of Sofi Snow.
    Wow - this title has me torn. Mary Webers The Evaporation of Sofi Snow is a book like none I have read recently. It is a fascinating tale set in a futuristic world where cameras are monitoring everything, reality TV has taken on a macabre twist health and safety wise and governments are nob more - replaced by faceless corporations.

    Thrown into this world are Sofi - a brilliant computer hacker and her brother Shilo who she must guide through part real part virtual games and keep him safe and alive. When a bomb is detonated during Shilos game and nearly takes out Sofi as well - the stakes go up massively and who you can trust becomes a question of survival.

    On the other side of the story is Miguel - a brash young playboy who acts as ambassador to a relatively recently arrived alien nation whose influence on the earth may not be to the earths benefit. He and Sofi have a history and will need to put that aside to work together to save their lives.

    While I found the book to be highly engaging and detailed - some of the world building for me took a bit of figuring out . Full disclosure - Im a relatively new devotee of fantasy / dystopia / science fiction and this story could fit quite comfortably into all of those genres. But I will be signing up to book two as book one ended with the kind of ending which requires one to ensure that the page count in your book is right as surely IT CANT END THERE . . . REALLY!!!

    Also while this book was published by a christian publisher - it has little to no christian content rather possibly even a few mature themes that may raise eyebrows. Whether this will alter with subsequent books - we will wait and see

    If youre looking for a compelling story with nods to Hunger Games then this is for you.

    I received a copy of this book from the publisher via The Fiction Guild, and was not required to post a positive review. The opinions expressed are my own.

    Holy cow this was so good!! I'm not too into aliens and space but Mary Weber made this a book for everyone! I'm excited to see what the next book brings, because of course, this left us with a cliffhanger!

    The Evaporation of Sofi Snow was a strange book, but in a good way. Very different from anything I've ever read. Author Weber keeps you guessing throughout the entire story. The world building was sublime. I felt like I'd lived in this world my whole life by the time I finished the book. And the plot was complex and filled with many twists and turns.

    The characters were also very enjoyable. Sofi is a snarky, independent computer genius, who is determined to always get her way. But underneath all that causticness is vulnerability and pain. Heller and Claudius were very amusing characters who kept me snickering at their antics. And Miguel? Si, Si. Miguel was an excellent character. He was quite the paradox; complex but relatable, a player but caring too, he had secrets but was open and honest; he was the target of blackmail but believed strongly in honor and integrity. Not to mention that he was muy atractivo. In case you didn't notice, he was my favorite character.

    The ending is a tough one, but compared to the ending of Storm Siren I'm counting my lucky stars that I got off easy. I look forward to the next book, to see what will happen next in this story.

    I received a complimentary copy of this book through the Fiction Guild. I was not required to give a positive review and all views and opinions expressed are my own.

    This review was written for The Evaporation of Sofi Snow.
    Great young adult book! So happy that there are some authors writing pretty decent books for yas!! Working at a bookstore, I see that there are way too many really trashy or evil books out there for this age group, so even though this one gets an almost PG-13 rating (at least in my opinion), it's a really good story and written, I believe, from a Christian perspective. The story is not overtly Christian, though, even though it is from a Christian publisher.

    I love the characters in this book, especially Sofi, Miguel and Danya! The story is set in the future-I love this genre, even though I am not a young adult. .

    This is the first book I've read by Mary Weber. I find it well written and hard to put down!
