A decade after the events in Sleeping Giantsa giant robot similar to Themis appears in London, causing world-wide panic. After defeating the first robot at great cost, dozens more appear, signaling the beginning of the end.


Why this book?: I mostly enjoyed Sleeping Giants, even though I was a little disappointed, but I was still curious enough to read Waking Gods when I saw that my wish had been granted on NetGalley!

I would like to thank Del Rey for allowing me to have an ARC via NetGalley.
