5 Out of 5 Stars for Waking Gods by Sylvain Neuvel
Waking Gods - Sylvain Neuvel

 

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~ABOUT THE BOOK~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

As a child, Rose Franklin made an astonishing discovery: a giant metallic hand, buried deep within the earth. As an adult, she’s dedicated her brilliant scientific career to solving the mystery that began that fateful day: Why was a titanic robot of unknown origin buried in pieces around the world? Years of investigation have produced intriguing answers—and even more perplexing questions. But the truth is closer now than ever before when a second robot, more massive than the first, materializes and lashes out with deadly force.

 

Now humankind faces a nightmare invasion scenario made real, as more colossal machines touch down across the globe. But Rose and her team at the Earth Defense Corps refuse to surrender. They can turn the tide if they can unlock the last secrets of an advanced alien technology. The greatest weapon humanity wields is knowledge in a do-or-die battle to inherit the Earth . . . and maybe even the stars.

~MY QUICKIE REVIEW~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

  

This was a re-read/listen on audio as a refresher for my e-ARC of Only Human.  And also...because I love this series in Audio format. My eARC of Waking Gods review can be seen here. My review of Sleeping Giants (the first book in the Themis Files) can be seen here.

  

The Themis Files is freaking amazing...this pic kind of says it all.

 

 

 

An easily conceptualized science fiction series infused with mysterious alien elements and plenty of wtf and omg moments thrown in.  Seriously, that ending…I'm so psyched to see where this series is going with the 3rd installment.  I'm fairly certain I'll be starting it soon.

The Puritan Pirate (Pirates of Port Royal #1) by Jules Radcliffe
The Puritan Pirate - Jules Radcliffe

3.5 stars I think is a fairer rating. 

Everything goes oh too well for our characters. Even the most evil event leaves (physically) only bruises and sore muscles. Not that I am complaining, mind you. 


Another minus for me is the unfinished business. Killjoy, Chacal, Spanish in general - those are still loose ends. I almost wish there was less talk and love making.... oh, who am I kidding!

One Sentence Review – Loved This Alaskan Adventure with Kitty Hawk by Iain Reading
Kitty Hawk And The Curse Of The Yukon Gold (Kitty Hawk Flying Detective Agency, #1) - Iain Reading

 

I won a paperback copy of Kitty Hawk and the Curse of the Yukon Gold by Iain Reading.

This is the cover I have, even though there is an alternate, I love this one.

 

Amazon  /  Goodreads

 

MY REVIEW

 

I loved this wondrous adventure story that I won some time ago, about a young girl flying the Alaskan skies, where she makes the most unlikely friends and learns that life is not black and white, and things are not always what they seem.
