First Line Friday + Spotlight - Reclaiming Shilo Snow

Happy Friday!

I received this book this week from the publishers. It was like Christmas when I opened the package. I was left with such conflicting emotions at the end of The Evaporation of Sofi Snow (you can find my review here) that I have been dying to get my hands on a copy of Reclaiming Shilo Snow. Mary Weber is an incredible author and has such vivid stories, that you can't help but be swept away into a different world. Here is the first line and don't forget to start with book 1, The Evaporation of Sofi Snow...

Happy Reading!

Today’s first line is from...

Reclaiming Shilo Snow
Mary Weber



The Taking
Four years to the day after the alien planet arrived above earth, Sofi's papa had collapsed on the rickety front porch of their buttermilk-yellow farmhouse.

About the Book

Trapped on the ice-planet of Delon, gamer girl Sofi and Ambassador Miguel have discovered that nothing is what it seems, including their friends. On a quest to rescue her brother, Shilo, a boy everyone believes is dead, they must now escape and warn Earth of Delon’s designs on humanity. Except the more they unearth of the planet and Sofi’s past, the more they feel themselves unravelling, as each new revelation has Sofi questioning the very existence of reality.
Meanwhile, back on Earth, Sofi’s mom, Inola, is battling a different kind of unravelling: a political one that could cost lives, positions, and a barely-rebuilt society, should they discover the deal made with the Delonese.
But there’s a secret deeper than all that. One locked away inside Sofi and ticking away with the beginnings, endings, and answers to everything. Including how to save humanity.
About the Author
Mary Weber is a ridiculously uncoordinated girl plotting to take over make-believe worlds through books, handstands, and imaginary throwing knives. In her spare time, she feeds unicorns, sings 80’s hairband songs to her three muggle children, and ogles her husband who looks strikingly like Wolverine. They live in California, which is perfect for stalking L.A. bands, Joss Whedon, and the ocean.

  1. I had the same reactions! I'm sharing from Where the Fire Falls on my blog today but I'm currently reading The Backcountry Brides Collection, so here is the first line from the first novella, Shenandoah Hearts by Carrie Fancett Pagels:

    Prologue
    Philadelphia 1753
    "Ladysmith, you have a gentleman caller--maybe two." The voice of her employer, Jacob Owens, held a slight tease.

    Happy Friday!

  2. A shrill voice grated from across the room. “Prudence Edith Gifford!”
