Book Description :

A page-turning debut in the tradition of Michael Crichton, World War Z, and The Martian, Sleeping Giants is a thriller fueled by an earthshaking mystery—and a fight to control a gargantuan power. A girl named Rose is riding her new bike near her home in Deadwood, South Dakota, when she falls through the earth. She wakes up at the bottom of a square hole, its walls glowing with intricate carvings. But the firemen who come to save her peer down upon something even stranger: a little girl in the palm of a giant metal hand. Seventeen years later, the mystery of the bizarre artifact remains unsolved—its origins, architects, and purpose unknown. Its carbon dating defies belief; military reports are redacted; theories are floated, then rejected. But some can never stop searching for answers. Rose Franklin is now a highly trained physicist leading a top secret team to crack the hand’s code. And along with her colleagues, she is being interviewed by a nameless interrogator whose power and purview are as enigmatic as the provenance of the relic. What’s clear is that Rose and her compatriots are on the edge of unraveling history’s most perplexing discovery—and figuring out what it portends for humanity. But once the pieces of the puzzle are in place, will the result prove to be an instrument of lasting peace or a weapon of mass destruction? Praise for 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, [and] a smart demonstration of how science fiction can honor its traditions and reverse-engineer them at the same time.”—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. . . . I can’t stop thinking about it.”—Chicago Review of Books “A remarkable debut . . . Reminiscent of Max Brooks’s World War Z, the story’s format effectively builds suspense.”—Library Journal (debut of the month) “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) Don’t miss any of The Themis Files by Sylvain Neuvel: SLEEPING GIANTS | WAKING GODS | ONLY HUMAN

Book Description :

**A must-read thriller for lovers of The Passage, World War Z, The Martian or Interstellar** What happens when you make a discovery that changes everything? Deadwood, USA. A girl sneaks out just before dark to ride her new bike. Suddenly, the ground disappears beneath her. Waking up at the bottom of a deep pit, she sees an emergency rescue team above her. The people looking down see something far stranger... "We always look forward. We never look back." That girl grows up to be Dr. Rose Franklyn, a brilliant scientist and the leading world expert on what she discovered. An enormous, ornate hand made of an exceptionally rare metal, which predates all human civilisation on the continent. "But this thing ... it's different. It challenges us. It rewrites history." An object whose origins and purpose are perhaps the greatest mystery humanity has ever faced. Solving the secret of where it came from - and how many more parts may be out there - could change life as we know it. "It dares us to question what we know about ourselves." But what if we were meant to find it? And what happens when this vast, global puzzle is complete...? "About everything." * * * 'Bursts at the seams with big ideas. A sheer blast from start to finish. I haven't had this much fun reading in ages' Blake Crouch, author of the Wayward Pines trilogy 'A stellar debut which masterfully blends 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 'Reminiscent of The Martian and World War Z, this is a luminous conspiracy yarn that shoots for (and lands among) the stars' Pierce Brown, author of Red Rising

Book Description :

In the gripping sequel to Sleeping Giants, Sylvain Neuvel’s innovative series about human-alien contact takes another giant step forward. “Sleeping Giants may have debuted his thrilling saga, but Waking Gods proves that Neuvel’s scope is more daring than readers could have imagined.”—Paste 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 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. Praise for Waking Gods “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.

Book Description :

Pacific Rim meets The Martian in the explosive follow-up to Sleeping Giants (“One of the most promising series kickoffs in recent memory.”—NPR) and Waking Gods (“Pure, unadulterated literary escapism.”—Kirkus Reviews). Brilliant scientist Rose Franklin has devoted her adult life to solving the mystery she accidentally stumbled upon as a child: a huge metal hand buried beneath the ground outside Deadwood, South Dakota. The discovery set in motion a cataclysmic chain of events with geopolitical ramifications. Rose and the Earth Defense Corps raced to master the enigmatic technology, as giant robots suddenly descended on Earth’s most populous cities, killing one hundred million people in the process. Though Rose and her team were able to fend off the attack, their victory was short-lived. The mysterious invaders retreated, disappearing from the shattered planet . . . but they took the scientist and her crew with them. Now, after nearly ten years on another world, Rose returns to find a devastating new war—this time between humans. America and Russia are locked in combat, fighting to fill the power vacuum left behind after the invasion. Families are torn apart, friends become bitter enemies, and countries collapse in the wake of the battling superpowers. It appears the aliens left behind their titanic death machines so humankind will obliterate itself. Rose is determined to find a solution, whatever it takes. But will she become a pawn in a doomsday game no one can win? Praise for Only Human “Packing a surprisingly powerful thematic punch, this novel is an addictive blend of science fiction, apocalyptic thriller, and chillingly timely cautionary tale. Two (giant, robotic) thumbs up!”—Kirkus Reviews “Boasting a winning combination of briskly paced action and futuristic dystopia tempered by cautious optimism, Only Human brings a fitting, satisfying end to the Themis Files series.”—RT Book Reviews “This action-packed tale with apocalyptic stakes is a fitting finale to this wonderfully cinematic series.”—Publishers Weekly “Series fans will be eager for Neuvel’s ever-so-satisfying conclusion to his rip-roaring science-fiction adventure tale.”—Booklist Don’t miss any of The Themis Files by Sylvain Neuvel: SLEEPING GIANTS | WAKING GODS | ONLY HUMAN

Book Description :

This book is written for those who are spiritually asleep to be awakened in order to carry out the Great Commission of Jesus Christ. To operate in the supernatural led by the Holy Spirit that it may be said of the modern-day Christians as it was said of the early Christians; they are turning the world upside down. Wake up, the alarm is sounding. This is no time to press the snooze button and continue to doze, because the rapture is imminent. In a dream, I saw a multitude of people flying like birds into the sky. It seemed as if they were being drawn up by a giant magnet. I said in amazement, "This is it. The rapture is taking place." I saw many people walking around on the ground, seemingly unaware of what was taking place around them. Suddenly I was taken up by the spirit of God as well and flown around in the sky, but just as quickly as I was taken up, I was placed firmly back down on the ground. Wake Up the Sleeping Giants will explain in detail why I was placed back on the ground and not raptured at that time. Also how I became spiritually awakened with a mandate to help sound the alarm for others who are yet spiritually asleep. Jesus is coming for His bride, the Church.

Book Description :

AMERICA “America is the land of the free and home of the brave”. At least this used to be how it was. Now, it is more like “America is the land of the corrupt and home of the ignorant”. Here we have an uncontrollable disease of corruption at its finest. “WE THE PEOPLE” are simply lacking knowledge or information of who we choose to elect for a government office. Who we think we are voting for just from the looks or what conspires out of their very mouths but do we really know who they are in essence of how they qualify in a particular role of office? In order to justify the means, the book you are about to read will enlighten you as to whom is corrupt and for how long it has been into existence. We will evaluate the circumstances to see why these events or things were corrupted out of revenge or sheer greed of money, to gain power. Some who are mentioned within this book are not so much corrupt but do hold a very thin line of being so. The Constitution pertains to ALL Americans and especially government officials who were elected to make sure our rights are not trampled on regardless of race, religion or place of origin. Whenever these rights are continuously being abused by the representatives of our government then it surely is time for the “Sleeping Giants MUST Awake Again.” (America) There has to be a big change within the entire government ‘system’. It has to take place from city mayors, governors, legislation, federal court system, all the way up to the United States President. Action speaks louder than words, therefore, what actions are taken by our congress people should be monitored closer by the people so our rights are upheld in an honorable fashion. When outsiders other than American citizens are given our constitutional rights, being illegal immigrates and then treason by fault of the U.S. government is in play. IMPEACHMENT is in order to follow through immediately. We can control the corruption if we discontinue the dynasties and take time to investigate whom we are going to vote for better. When any candidate try to change any of the ‘Constitution or ‘Bill of Rights,’ for their own personal needs, it threatens the people of any age groups. It dishonors our flag and country, dishonors other political or religious organizations, camouflaging, misconduct by prejudice, unexplainable expenses for diplomatic reasons while traveling, parties while there is a crisis going on which requires their immediate attention or gives aid to the undeserving before their own kind (Americans) should be impeached immediately with no benefits herewith. ALL must take drug test and have background checks. The law is for everybody no exemption because you happen to be a politician. Only you and I can hope to enforce these rules of conduct, to have a better tomorrow and of human decency for all Americans. IMPEACH OUR FRAUDULENT PRESIDENT ‘BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA’

Book Description :

Mainstream America has for too long been the sleeping giant of American politics. As mainstream Americans, we mind our own business, take care of our own responsibilities, and play by the rules. We know that there is no quick path to personal success or to national prosperity. But the ruling class has come to see the mainstream as largely irrelevant as a political force, when we are the backbone that supports the body politic. We work, pay our taxes, and vote. Then we go back to work and hope that those in power will do the right thing. We have trusted the dogs of the political class to guard our lunch, and they have eaten it. Something needs to change. Before we can equip the sleeping giant for the struggle ahead of us, however, we need to wake that sleeping giant. Waking the Sleeping Giant exposes liberal techniques and teaches mainstream Americans how to counter them to take back the country that our forebears made great, and to make it great again.

Book Description :

Within every company, there lies a sleeping giant. Companies have long been viewed as either the primary cause of environmental destruction, or as a deep-pocketed funding source for people trying to confront it. But with their access to innovation, new technology, and intellectual firepower, most companies are built to tackle the challenges our planet faces in a way smaller organizations and foundations can't. What would happen if executives stopped looking at sustainability as a side project for the PR team and saw it instead as a way to benefit the planet and their profits? The giant would be awakened-and the world would never be the same.  Jake Kheel wrote Waking the Sleeping Giant to help unlock your company's hidden power to save the planet. He offers an action-driven, common sense approach to sustainability supported by real-life examples from his work in the Dominican Republic that demonstrate how companies can become a potent force for sustainability. This book offers up tangible ways everyone-from executives to employees-can make a difference and demonstrate the value of sustainability beyond the bottom line.
