To answer your question, "Reclaiming Shilo Snow" is the final book in the series (there's just two books total). So, the story will definitely wrap up in this one. :)

The next book after this series will be (*shhhh*)... another fantasy. ;)(less)

This is the sequel to The Evaporation of Sofi Snow. I felt the same about the first book, but this was a duology and I thought I would finish them when it was offered on one of my blog sites.

I liked both of the books well enough and I enjoyed the characters. I liked little Shilo the best.


Sofi is on the ice planet Delon with Ambassador Miguel and many other children. Sofi and Miguel are trying to find Shilo and get back to Earth. They are trying to save other children as well

This was a fun conclusion to the Evaporation of Sofi Snow duology. Once I dived back into this world the details of the first book started coming back to me and I didnt feek like I was missing anything important. In the first book we follow Sofi an awesome hacker and gamer as she tries to get her brother back from the aliens who abducted him after the bombing at the worlds biggest sporting event where teens fight it out in a virtual reality game.

I liked the main characters and their romance more

I might not have been the biggest fan of the first book, The Evaporation of Sofi Snow, but I did enjoy it, mostly because of the fist fights, car chases, and flying spaceships. So I decided to give the sequel a go, but unfortunately I wasn't particularly impressed. It was the pure, sheer weirdness of this book that put me off.

Months ago, I received a copy of this book - 2nd in the Shilo trilogy - from the publisher via Goodreads giveaways. I fully expected to thoroughly enjoy reading it. I even went so far as to purchase the first book with thoughts of reading it first. Oh, but it just didn't pan out as I had envisioned. Try as I might, neither book held my interest.

However!!! I gave both books to a bookclub friend who LOVES fantasy and SciFi more than any other genre. And she LOVED them!! Tobi says: five star YA al

In hind sight, I probably should have reread The Evaporation of Sofi Snow before reading this, but it didn't take me very long to start remembering the events of the last book. I still like the Storm Siren trilogy more, but I also really enjoyed these books, as well.

Reclaiming Shilo Snow is told through the POV's of Sofi, Miguel, and Inola.

I especially enjoyed reading about Miguel, who was just as great in this book as he was in the last one- if not more. Sofi really developed as a character in

Wow. This duology was spectacular.
Sofi Snow and Shilo Snow show the value of human life and how it shouldn't be for sale.
It shows the power of compassion and how caring and helping people in need is so important.
And in the end it shows hope. Hope for a better world, hope that while things could look dark now, that there is light at the end.

You didn't think I would be able to end this review without fangirling a little did you? ;)

I have been waiting for this book ever since the moment I read the end of The Evaporation of Sofi Snow. I was pretty hyped up about it, needing to know what happened after that huge cliff hanger. This book met and exceeded my expectations! It was fun, full of adventure, and wonderfully written. Although this is considered YA, I think adults will enjoy it just as much. In fact, perhaps you want to read it with your young adult so you can discuss it with them as you read!

Reclaiming Shilo Snow picks up right where Sofi Snow left off. The chapters are once again told from multiple points of view, mainly Sofi, Miguel and Sofi’s mother Inola.

The majority of the story is taking place with the Delon’s and still trying to figure out what their angle is with Earth, and why they are so focused on Sofi and Shilo. This time there are a few flashbacks too before the Delons showed up and what life was like for Sofi and Shilo, we also get a better understanding as to why Inol

This second book in the duology brought us back to the sci-fi adventures of Sofi Snow. What I love most about this series is the gorgeous writing. There were so many moments where I just found myself enraptured by Weber’s prose. The series puts a spotlight on human trafficking in a sci-fi setting, and while Weber can sometimes be a little heavy-handed with her messaging, she makes some keen observations about society. This installment was exciting, with quite a bit of sci-fi adventure. And we ge ...more

An absolutely incredible, heart-stopping end to this thrilling story. I love these characters, especially Sofi (I named one of my main characters in my upcoming YA after her!), and how their relationships evolve with the story and the pressures of everything that falls on their shoulders. This is not just an entertaining science fiction story, however - it is a serious look at how vulnerable people are used by others for profit, whether it is for money, experimentation, or other uses.

Reclaiming Shilo Snow throws Sofi into a thrilling race to save the ones she loves and to rethink what she’s capable of.

First off, a million stars *might* be enough to show how much I love this book. I've read and adored all of Mary's books, but this one is special. There is so much heart and hope for humanity in this book. This gorgeous conclusion to the Sofi Snow duology asks us what we would do for family. For humanity. And what our responsibility is when we are faced with the truth of our broken world. I'm not going to say much more, for fear of giving away the fun parts, but honestly, the world needs more bo ...more

Ever since I read Storm Siren last year and then met Mary Weber at Realm Makers, I wanted to read this duology by her. Reclaiming Shilo Snow came out March 6th and I was ecstatic to receive this copy to review.

(I had not previously read the first book so that was adventure to dash through the first one in order to read and review this one. I did, however, read this one in one day. About 6 or 7 hours straight. I even stayed up past my bedtime. Wooo.)

I hate having to wait for the next book in a series- besides being impatient, I often find it difficult to remember everything that happened in the previous book when I have to wait a year to continue the story. This happened with Reclaiming Shilo Snow, so I admit it took me a couple chapters to get into its groove, and I even looked back over my review of the first book to jog my memory a little bit.

Overall, I think I liked this book better than the first. This is because the characters seemed

Oh man, this book continued with the same guts and the same heart as The Evaporation of Sofi Snow—and more heart pounding twists and turns and secrets hurtled me right to the satisfying finale.

Together, this duology is inspiring in the truest sense of the word. It holds up a mirror and asks us to find our humanity, to choose goodness over rightness, and to make every choice one of love. 5 glowing stars!

Loved this every bit as much as The Evaporation of Sofi Snow. Weber has created a cast of characters that are distinctive and relatable and real, in a cool, rich sci-fi/dystopian world. I probably said this in my review of Sofi Snow, but if you enjoyed the Cinder series, this is right up your alley. Absolutely loved it!

I’m so disappointed by how this turned out. I jumped into this forgetting the plot twists at the end of the first book and it messed me all up in the beginning. I found that this book was pretty boring and didn’t have much impact besides wrapping things up. I wish there was more dynamic to it.

Oh my goodness, make sure you set aside a day of no interruptions for the conclusion of the Snow Dualoligy. A fitting end to this pair of books because as much as I tried to guess what would happen, I did not even come close. Mary Weber is extremely skilled at world-building, character development and making me stay up way into the night because I HAVE TO READ ONE MORE CHAPTER. Without giving away any spoilers, in The Evaporation of Sofi Snow, we really get to know Sofi, but in Reclaiming Shilo ...more

Wow. This book was so good. I liked it better than the first one. Mary Weber's world building is so creative and complex (but logical). It's books like these and Nadine Brande's Out of Time series that inspire me to write dystopian.

When I finished the first book, I wasn't sure if I wanted to buy and read the second one. Not because my emotions didn't want me to (that cliffhanger was TERRIBLE), but because it ended with some disturbing things that I wasn't sure I could always handle well... espec

I really enjoyed this book so much! I don’t read a lot of Sci-Fi of any kind so I’ve made a point to really get into it more. I’m so glad that I took the opportunity to sign up for Evaporation of Sofi Snow because I really enjoy this duology! Book two was just as good as the first one and it was even better getting to learn more about the alien species that’s been inhabiting parts of Earth for the 11 years since their arrival.

I have to admit, I'm not sure why this book is as loved as it is. Like with the first book, the writing is pretty smooth and easy to read, and for the first quarter, I though I was going to like this so much better than the first book. The writing was intense, filled with suspense and some pretty horrifying imagery. That imagery finally had me fully engaged in the Sofi's plan to bring the Delonese down. However, that changed soon after.

Eventually, (view spoiler)

Once 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. Ar

tl; dr, This book is the action-based part of the duology, whereas the first book was more set-up (although both have lots of action!). They're similar to Warcross and The Lunar Chronicles, and they have gorgeous covers!

In this book, the characters come more together, and they begin to talk from their own perspectives. We get more into the mind of Levana Inola, as well as Shilo and Miguel, which I really enjoyed. The storytelling style was also really cool and special: it felt dreamlike/in a haz

While 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 no exception with plenty of action, intrigue and head-scratching in the search for the truth. Through the eyes of Sofi, Miguel, and Sofi’s mom, readers are given a well-rounded picture of Sofi’s world. The story engaged me from the start and

Haven't read the first book? Don't worry - this very nearly could work as a stand-alone. There's not as much world building here (possibly it's in the first book), and the characters are pretty static but it's the action that is important. Who exactly are the Delonese? What is happening on their moon-spaceship? Can Sofi rescue (or reclaim) her brother Shilo? And what about those Corp CEOs? Not all of them will be answered, but that's ok. And no, apparently there won't be a third book answering t ...more

I love Mary Weber’s writing, but I’ll admit I was hesitant to pick up this book’s predecessor, The Evaporation of Sofi Snow, simply because of the setting; it’s hard to think of a topic that interests me less than gaming. But pick it up I did, and I’m glad—doubly so, now that I’ve read this book, which I thought was even better than the first. If, like me, you’re not into gaming, don’t let that put you off, because the heart of this duology is something that is common to us all: relationship—our ...more
