The perfect book for those that are into the gaming world including what it could turn into in the future. A little darker than the first but oh so good!
Seventeen-year-old Sofi Snow is one of the world’s greatest hackers alive. She has left our world to go to the alien planet Delon to find her brother Shilo who everyone believes is dead. She knows that isn’t true, she can feel it. With the help of Ambassador Miguel, they seek out the truth in finding her brother and also letting the people of Earth in on the secrets about the alien planet and what intentions it has for Earth. However, this isn’t the first time she has been with the Delonese. When she was younger, she and her brother were taken by them, but she has no memory of this time. As the second installment in the Sofi Snow series, readers will see what is next for this brother and sister and how it will impact all of Earth and beyond.
Not all books in a series have to be read in order but this one most definitely does. If you haven’t read The Evaporation of Sofi Snow or don’t remember the story very well it will be difficult to connect to this one. With that being said, if you have read it, get ready to pick up where it left off and see how the rest of the story unfolds. The characters continue their journey and we seem them grow closer to each other as the story unfolds. There is sacrifice and betrayal and all the things that make a good story great. I loved how Weber continued with the multiple viewpoints to give readers a deeper sense of what was happening in the story instead of sticking with one POV and having to figure some of it out without really seeing it unfold. There were times in the story that I felt confused and thought I needed to go back to clear something up but within a few pages it all seemed to work itself out for me. Readers that love YA/Dystopian novels and have a passion for gaming will not want to miss this one.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher. The views and opinions expressed within are my own.
