Book Review - The Evaporation of Sofi Snow by Mary Weber

The war has ravaged Earth and it's residents. However, when the Delonese arrived eleven years ago, the world is  starting to change. Corporations rule the citizens instead of governments while there are aliens who orbit the Earth. The only thing constant in Sofi's life is her younger brother, Shilo. Both siblings are involved in the violent Fantasy Fighting games, even though Shilo is there against his will. In the middle of their game, a bomb explodes and kills many of the players and audience. Rumor has it that Shilo is among the dead, but Sofi refuses to believe he is gone. She dreams of him and of the Delonese ice planet. Why is Sofi having those dreams? Are the dreams and the bomb connected?

The book was a quick and intense read. It had an interesting story line and once I started it, I couldn't stop reading. I kept greedily reading page after page to find out what would happen to Sofi and Shilo. The story delivered with well developed lovable but flawed characters but I was quickly disappointed to find out the story just ended on a cliffhanger. And not a cliffhanger that made you wonder, "What is inside the box" but it ended very abruptly. It left me with an unsatisfied feeling; annoying given how much I fell in love with the characters. An interesting read but if you are like me, wait until you have the next book in hand otherwise you might be disappointed.
