Waiting on Wednesday #7 - The Evaporation of Sofi Snow

Another Waiting on Wednesday, another book added to by ever-growing and seemingly unconquerable TBR shelf! The difference with these books is they go straight to the top of said pile when they're finally released, or more likely they'll just bypass the pile entirely and I'll start reading the moment they arrive.

My Waiting on Wednesday pick this week is The Evaporation of Sofi Snow by Mary Weber. The first in a duology (which seems to be the new trilogy!) isn't due out until June (!!!), but I am counting the days. If you follow my blog, you probably know I'm more than a little obsessed with Mary Weber's Storm Siren trilogy (see evidence here, here, and here).

I love her books, and will forever buy anything she writes! Her mix of flawed yet human characters, epic world building and beautiful writing style makes anything with her name on an instant pre-order. Her new series sounds a lot more sci-fi than the straight up fantasy of the Siren series, with some serious gamer girl props, something sorely lacking in YA! Throw in the charming playboy love interest (because duh!), sibling bond and intergalactic politics and you've got all the ingredients for a must-read.

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.

When this book finally lands on the doormat, I may do an actual happy dance. Although I probably shouldn't, because I have a glass porch and my neighbours may think I'm crazy.

So, while I count down the 90+ days I have to wait for this book, what's your Waiting on Wednesday?
