spotlight and discuss the books we're excited about that we have yet to read.
Release Date: May 1, 2018 by Del Rey Books
World War Z 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).
In her childhood, Rose Franklin accidentally discovered a giant metal hand buried beneath the ground outside Deadwood, South Dakota. As an adult, Dr. Rose Franklin led the team that uncovered the rest of the body parts which together form Themis: a powerful robot of mysterious alien origin. She, along with linguist Vincent, pilot Kara, and the unnamed Interviewer, protected the Earth from geopolitical conflict and alien invasion alike. Now, after nearly ten years on another world, Rose returns to find her old alliances forfeit and the planet in shambles. And she must pick up the pieces of the Earth Defense Corps as her own friends turn against each other. [Goodreads Summary]
Why I want to read this one: First I have to read the first two books in the series, which I would really like to do. And then I can read this one. I have heard such great things about this series. I hope to get to it soon.
Have you read any of the books in this series?
What upcoming releases are you looking forward to?
