Reclaiming Shilo Snow
Trapped on the ice-planet of Delon, gamer girl Sofi and Ambassador Miguel have discovered that nothing is what it seems, including their friends. On a quest to rescue her brother, Shilo, a boy everyone believes is dead, they must now escape and warn Earth of Delon’s designs on humanity. Except the more they unearth of the planet and Sofi’s past, the more they feel themselv...more
The next book after this series will be (*shhhh*)... another fantasy. ;)(less)
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 ...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.
"Thank heavens for the Delonese. For their gift of technology and environmental cleanup. But mor ...more
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 ...more
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 ...more
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? ;)
So many feels were experienced while I read this book, I just l ...more

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 ...more
In this fast-paced, duology wrap up to Mary Weber’s science fiction series, we follow Sofi Snow on a quest to rescue her brother. Left behind on the planet/space craft Delon, Sofi discovers the fascinating truth behind the Delonese and works to actively oppose them.
On Earth, Sofia’s mother is faced with a hard choice that will not only affect Earths inhabitants but also the l ...more
(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.)
This book was a wonderful adventure in futuris ...more
Overall, I think I liked this book better than the first. This is because the characters seemed ...more
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!
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 ...more
Sofi is such a fun character. She doesn’t let anyone get in the way of ...more
Wow. Just wow. This is a book you can’t put down!
Everything we thought we knew from The Evaporation of Sofi Snow gains new dimension in this sequel – and for each layer we uncover, it seems there are more waiting to be explored. Mary Weber is truly a master at world-building and science fiction/fantasy. And y’all – this isn’t my favorite genre. But in We ...more
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)[ Sofi and Miguel are app ...more
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 ...more
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 ...more
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 ...more
