Themis Files Book 2

Giants / Themis Files 2

(2)
What's going on? Turn on the television. What channel? Any channel. An unknown vessel, not of this world, materializes in London. A colossal figure towering over the city, it makes no move. Is this a peaceful first contact or the prelude to an invasion? Every child has nightmares. But the only thing scarier than little Eva Reyes' dreams - apocalyptic visions of death and destruction - is the habit they have of coming true...Scientist Dr Rose Franklin has no memory of the last few years. The strangers she works with say she died, and was brought back to life. The question is not just how ...but why? Kara Resnik and Vincent Couture fell in love during war, and have found peace since. They are the thin line of defence against what is coming. But they do not know they have been living a lie. And a man who claims to have the answers has his own agenda. There are things he cannot say - and others he won't. All pieces of an epic puzzle. One we have been trying to solve since the dawn of time...*** Praise for Sylvain Neuvel: 'This year's The Martian. Captivating ...So good and so eerie' Buzzfeed 'Bursts at the seams with big ideas ...this book is a sheer blast from start to finish. I haven't had this much fun reading in ages' Blake Crouch, author of Dark Matter and Wayward Pines 'This stellar debut novel masterfully blends together elements of sci-fi, political thriller and apocalyptic fiction ...so much more than the sum of its parts. A page-turner of the highest order' Kirkus Reviews 'As high-concept as it is, Sleeping Giants is a thriller through and through. One of the most promising series kickoffs in recent memory' NPR 'Reminiscent of The Martian and World War Z, Sleeping Giants is a luminous conspiracy yarn that shoots for (and lands among) the stars' Pierce Brown, New York Times bestselling author of Red Rising

„I changed my mind. I don’t want a movie. Netflix!!!! I want an original series from you, ASAP!!!“

Milli, Thalia-Buchhandlung Wien

It’s been ten years since the first book ended. Ten years since our two pilots have revealed the big Alien-Robot Themis to the world, dropped said robot into the ocean, been subjected to various tests by a mad scientist (who even took samples of their sperm and ovaries to produce children) and brought the robot back to the surface so that they could share it with the world.
And it’s been ten years since the UN created a special department just for that specific Mega-Alien-Robot, with our two pilots as the only ones who could operate it.

And what have they done in those ten years? Parading Themis around, that’s basically it. But suddenly a new Robot transports himself in the middle of London. Why is he here, what will he do and, even more important, what will our two Pilots do?

I liked the second book even more than the first one, and I am really surprised by that. I didn’t know how Sylvain could make it better. Because frankly the story of the second book isn’t anything special, but then again, the story of the first book wasn’t anything special too. Like the first one this book here lives because of its characters and their stories.

But while the first one was intriguing, well written, intelligent and exciting, the second one was all that plus it was more emotional. At least to me it was! I can’t remember when the last time was, that I felt so much for fictional characters.

A really great sequel to a really great book!

Epicness has grown
von Lisa F. aus Berlin am 04.04.2017

3,5 stars Well, that escalated quickly. The epicness has grown in this book so much. It's much more badass with twists that I definitely did not see coming. Like, AT ALL.

It's much more badass with twists that I definitely did not see coming. Like, AT ALL. I'm still not over that one twist which totally caught me off guard. Respect to the author for that bold move, man. Now, this book might have more epicness than the first one but I felt even more distant to the characters than in its predecessor. I was actually a little bit bored at the end of the book and did not fully understand what exactly happened. But that ending has left me wanting more. Please, let there be another book!
