Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine, and is a fun way to share upcoming books that you’re excited about with other bloggers and readers. This month I’m participating in Sci-Fi Month hosted by Rinn Reads and Over the Effing Rainbow, and celebrating all things science fiction with weekly sci-fi Waiting on Wednesday picks!
It’s the last WoW of Sci-Fi Month! I had a great time focusing on only SF books this month, and I hope you did too. Here’s my pick this week:
Ever since the Delonese ice-planet arrived eleven years ago, Sofi’s dreams have been vivid. Alien. In a system where Earth’s corporations rule in place of governments and the humanoid race orbiting the moon are allies, her only constant has been her younger brother, Shilo. As an online gamer, Sofi battles behind the scenes of Earth’s Fantasy Fighting arena where Shilo is forced to compete in a mix of real and virtual blood sport. But when a bomb takes out a quarter of the arena, Sofi’s the only one who believes Shilo survived. She has dreams of him. And she’s convinced he s been taken to the ice-planet.
Except no one but ambassadors are allowed there.
For Miguel Earth’s charming young playboy the games are of a different sort. As Ambassador to the Delonese, his career has been built on trading secrets and seduction. Until the Fantasy Fight’s bomb goes off. Now the tables have turned and he’s a target for blackmail. The game is simple: Help the blackmailers, or lose more than anyone can fathom, or Earth can afford.
From the award-winning author of the Storm Siren Trilogy, step into a diverse cast of characters spanning from the electric metropolises of earth to the chilling alien planet above, in a story of re-finding yourself in the midst of losing the one thing you love. Before it all evaporates.
The Evaporation of Sofi Snow by Mary Weber. Releases in June 2017 from Thomas Nelson. This is a YA, and gaming seems to feature pretty heavily. I’m not a gamer, but I’m drawn to stories about gamers, for some reason. Plus, check out the lovely cover! I’m very excited about this one.
Let me know what you’re waiting on this week:-D
