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 Inola did what she did both for her children and for the people of Earth.
There were a few parts in the book that did confuse me, but as it went on it made a lot more sense as to what was going on and why things happened the way that they did. Since the Delons are so focused and interested in Sofi and her hacker skills, which were very cool, and made me jealous of Sofi.
Without getting too involved with spoliers, I will say there were a few scenes in the book that made me think of The Matrix series. Outside of the “I know Kung-Fu” line, I don’t know if the author meant to use similarities to the movie, but even if she didn’t I found it easy to visualize what was going on.
The ending of this book hurt, the sacrifices that were made, the people that were betrayed, the truth finally coming to light, it was a great way to end the story. Even knowing that things will not fix themselves over night I liked how things were paced out to wrap up the every end of the book, and that prologue ending was not was I was expecting. Now saying that I do hope at some point there will be a novella or short story about the family at the end of the book.
This duology is such an amazing read, when I read The Evaporation of Sofi Snow I could not shut up about it for weeks, and I’m pretty much at that point now with Shilo. The two books are great fast reads, if you are into hi-tech hacker/gamer type stories with a dash of alien interaction. Grab both of them.
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. Are there really things we don’t know going on in the universe?
What would it be like if we were taken over by beings of another world? Whom could we trust and what is real?
I enjoyed the suspense, the unstoppable action, the futuristic adventures and the bits of drama with human emotions. There were times I didn’t know if what was happening was real or fabricated in Sofi’s mind. I also loved the relationships formed and healed in the story, as well as, the good versus evil aspects.
This story has some great quotes, and one of these quotes I find very powerful:
“Your life is precious. So is mine. So are our neighbors’, and coworkers’ and those who disagree with us. And the minute I elevate my life above another’s – the moment I choose mine as more valuable for the survival of humanity – is the moment I begin to give away my humanity. And that is the moment we all begin to lose.”
This story also touches on the whole horrible issue of human trafficking. What makes those individuals less valued in our eyes? We need to open our eyes to the struggles going on around us and take a stand. If more of us give voice to this injustice, then it will have less of a hold on our society. Thank you, Mary Weber, for being a voice!
I highly recommend picking this book up.
I received this book from the publisher to read. All opinions are my own.
The book keeps you guessing until the end. Characters grow, change alliances, and face great peril as the story moves to an explosive finale. There's a deeper message in the book that speaks light into a modern day darkness wrapped in a story of hope.
For YA fans of strong female characters, science fiction, and virtual reality, this is a book to check out. Definitely read book 1 first.
I loved the extra depth we get in Reclaiming Shilo Snow. Especially the parts with Sofi's mom, and the Delonese revealed their creepy side.
The author did something so beautiful and powerful in telling Sofi's story. Tackling the current issues of human trafficking. Being honest and real to the depths of human soul, and all the ways we can be wounded and restored.
This story made me cry and laugh and brought conviction and encouragement and hope. So much hope.
Highly, HIGHLY recommend this series. It's a fast, daring sci-fi read that is full of soul and real life and terrible truths but braver choices to not let the discovery of that truth be in vain.
Victims become more than victors in this tale. They become whole.
