Reviews

"Kick-ass, one-on-one robot action combines with mind-bending scientific and philosophical speculation. Series science-fiction fans will enjoy this follow-up filled with unexpected revelations and a surprise finale."--Booklist

"Pure, unadulterated literary escapism featuring giant killer robots and the looming end of mankind. In a word: unputdownable."--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

"Stunningly good . . . If you read just one science fiction book this year, then Waking Gods is the perfect choice."--Fresh Fiction

"Sheer escapist fun."--Shelf Awareness

Praise for Sylvain Neuvel's Sleeping Giants


"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

"Neuvel weaves a complex tapestry with ancient machinery buried in the Earth, shadow governments, and geopolitical conflicts. But the most surprising thing about the book may just be how compelling the central characters are in the midst of these larger-than-life concepts."--Chicago Review of Books

"This stellar debut novel . . . masterfully blends together elements of sci-fi, political thriller and apocalyptic fiction. . . . A page-turner of the highest order."--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

"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, #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Red Rising trilogy

"First-time novelist Sylvain Neuvel does a bold, splashy cannonball off the high dive with Sleeping Giants. It 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 the bestselling Wayward Pines trilogy

"A remarkable debut."--Library Journal (starred review)
