I received a free Kindle copy of this book courtesy of Net Galley and Random House Ballentine, the publisher. It was with the understanding that I would write a review and post it on Net Galley, Goodreads, Amazon and my book review blog. I also posted it to my Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Google Plus pages.
I requested this book as I am a fan of science fiction and I read the previous book in the Themis series (Sleeping Giants) and enjoyed it immensely.
This book continues the theme of the first in the series (alien visitation/invasion) and expands upon it to several robots. It is an engaging read which also makes it a quick read. I do not want to give the story line away, but some characters from the first book are killed and some new characters arise. I have been looking for new science fiction authors to follow and Sylvain Neuvel has definitely made the list. I am looking forward to the next book in the Themis series.
I recommend this book to anyone who is looking for a fresh, engaging science fiction author. I also recommend that you read the first book in the series as this one is not a stand alone novel.
