Themis Files Book 2

Themis Files

(2)

'Reminiscent of The Martian and World War Z' PIERCE BROWN

A twenty-story-tall metallic figure appears in the middle of Regent's Park. The caretakers at London Zoo notice it first at around 4am. The figure, or robot, bears a great resemblance to the UN robot known as Themis . . .

Who made Themis?

It's been ten years since Themis - a giant alien metal robot - was revealed to the world by Dr Rose Franklin. It now stands at the heart of the Earth Defense Corps - in case the makers of Themis return to claim it.

Why did they leave it here?

Rose and her team are still seeking answers to Themis's origins when a second and even bigger robot appears in London's Regent's Park. A military response backfires, reducing half the city to bare earth.

And what if they come back?

As more robots appear across the world, Rose knows it's a race against time to discover where they've come from, what they want and - most importantly - how to stop them . . .

It?s been ten years since the first book ended. Ten years since our two pilots have revealed the big Alien-Robot Themis to the world, dropped said robot into the ocean, been subjected to various tests by a mad scientist (who even took samples of their sperm and ovaries to produce children) and brought the robot back to the surface so that they could share it with the world. And it?s been ten years since the UN created a special department just for that specific Mega-Alien-Robot, with our two pilots as the only ones who could operate it. And what have they done in those ten years? Parading Themis around, that?s basically it. But suddenly a new Robot transports himself in the middle of London. Why is he here, what will he do and, even more important, what will our two Pilots do? I liked the second book even more than the first one, and I am really surprised by that. I didn?t know how Sylvain could make it better. Because frankly the story of the second book isn?t anything special, but then again, the story of the first book wasn?t anything special too. Like the first one this book here lives because of its characters and their stories. But while the first one was intriguing, well written, intelligent and exciting, the second one was all that plus it was more emotional. At least to me it was! I can?t remember when the last time was, that I felt so much for fictional characters. A really great sequel to a really great book!

Epicness has grown

It's much more badass with twists that I definitely did not see coming. Like, AT ALL. I'm still not over that one twist which totally caught me off guard. Respect to the author for that bold move, man. Now, this book might have more epicness than the first one but I felt even more distant to the characters than in its predecessor. I was actually a little bit bored at the end of the book and did not fully understand what exactly happened. But that ending has left me wanting more. Please, let there be another book!
