Sleeping Giants by Sylvain Neuvel

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 Franklin, 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.”

Peer & Press Reviews

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 (starred review)

As high-concept as it is, Sleeping Giants is a thriller through and through…  Not only is Sleeping Giants one of the most promising series kickoffs in recent memory, it’s a smart demonstration of how science fiction can honor its traditions and reverse-engineer them at the same time.

NPR book 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

Overall condition:

Near fine / Very fine

By our standards, and as we believe in transparency, this book has some heavier than usual pushing to the bottom of the spine.  This is why we’ve classed its condition as Near Fine.  That said we don’t think the flaw affects the book’s appearance too much.

Because of this flaw, we’ve priced this book at what we believe is at least 20-30% below its current market value. Even so, if you are unhappy with the book it in any way, return it to us in the condition you received it for a full refund.
