It does have some of the hallmarks of a dystopian such as a strong and influential protagonist. However, it's so much more. There is the gamer aspect, the intricate political intrigue, and the mysterious alien race, the Delonese. The book is well-paced with more steady unwrapping than intense action, which is my preference.
Sofi and Miguel are intriguing protagonists as are the strong supporting cast. Characters are important to me and are the greatest strength of The Evaporation of Sofi Snow.
The gaming Fan-Fights, the all too kind and distant aliens, the greedy corporations in control of Earth, were all good pieces for this story. What made me love it were the characters. They are written with such raw honesty. Both Miguel and Sofi are deeply wounded by others and by themselves.
This story is a struggle of human soul trying to survive, to hold on to what matters, and to revoke the all too common byline of injustice, that it's for the greater good.
Apart from all of that, I found myself changing my mind a lot about the characters. Kept me guessing till the end on who was really bad or good. And Claudius made me laugh so many times.
On the surface, this is a fast book set in a futuristic world ruled by corporations and filled with gamers, gadgets and aliens. The excitement and twists kept coming, and I couldn't stop reading once I started. But under the surface of this high action story are themes of loss and family bonds and identity, as well as what it means to be human, value life and have true relationships, all of which turned up the emotional intensity. I love stories that could be read on many levels and that are not just one thing, and this book is deeply both of those elements.
Three things you should know about The Evaporation of Sofi Snow before you start:
1) Eleven Years ago another planet appeared in Earth's orbit. It's people are called the Delonese, and though they mostly look human, they are not exactly.
2) The most important person in Sofi's world is her brother Shilo. She will do anything to protect him.
3) Eighteen months ago, Sofi met a charming boy who stole her heart and then broke it. She's determined not to lose her heart to anyone again.
This book begins with Sofi Snow, a brilliant gamer girl competing in the Fanfight Games - a mixture of virtual and reality competition that the whole world tunes in to watch every 6 months. Sofi is the girl behind the screens while her brother Shilo is the one in front of the cameras and on the ground of the stadium, fighting to stay ahead of the other players also sponsored by corporations. But Shilo goes missing when the arena is bombed by another competitor, and though he's officially declared dead, Sofi is certain that he is not. Stopping at nothing to find him, Sofi soon realizes her only option is to convince Miguel, the young ambassador who broke her heart eighteen months ago, to take her to the Delonese ice-planet where she's sure Shilo is being held. Although this is not her favorite plan, Sofi will not let past feelings get in the way of her brother.
I love that many things in this story are much more than they appear at first. Nothing is just what it appears on the surface, and that includes the characters. Who is Sofi under that confident armor she projects, and what losses have made her this way? Miguel projects a playboy persona, and it's true that he and Sofi share a complicated and painful past, but who is he really? In the story we get both of their POVs and slowly as the narrative unfolds, their layers are pealed back and exposed. Although the focus of this story is Sofi's quest to find her brother, and within that herself, a lot of other elements are at play, including a second chance romance. I will say that it was hard for me to read about Miguel and Sofi's past, but also rewarding to watch them begin to face that and each other as they worked together. I'm definitely looking forward to more of them in the next installment.
The Evaporation of Sofi Snow ends in the middle of a high intensity moment, and it is a cliffhanger in every sense of the word. I'm now dying for the next installment of this duet!
Sofi and her brother, Shilo, are part of the Earth's UW gaming circuit. The worldwide games were started after the Fourth War to help unite the world under the Corporations that now rule. However, during the most recent game, a bomb explodes and Shilo is presumed dead in the aftermath. Sofi is certain her brother isn't dead. And she's determined to go after him ... even if that mean facing down the aliens on the planet that has appeared near the moon.
