When I first heard of Sylvain Neuvelâ€™s novelÂ Sleeping Giants: Themis Files Book 1 (Themis Files 1)Â I was wary of all the hype surrounding it. It couldnâ€™t be THAT good, could it? When I eventually picked it up I was swept away by the twists and turns and unanswered questions of the book. It was an action packed reading experience. Today I can easily say â€œGiant Robots! Whatâ€™s not to like?â€
The sequel Â Waking Gods: Themis Files Book 2Â takes place ten years later when an even bigger robot materialises in London with devastating consequences. Dr Rose Franklin is still coming to terms with the events of the previous novel and the mysterious unnamed interviewer is still there asking questions. Soon more robots arriveâ€¦
I donâ€™t want to give much away here, especially in case youâ€™ve not read the previous book, but Waking Gods: Themis Files Book 2Â is even better than Sleeping Giants. There is a third book on the way, as well as two other stories from the Themis Files. I only hope I have enough patience to wait for the next book!
