Praise for Sleeping Giants 'This year's The Martian...if you want a captivating story with some serious sci-fi elements and dark undertones, this is it! So good and so eerie' Buzzfeed 'This stellar debut novel...masterfully blends together elements of 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) 'First-time novelist Sylvain Neuvel does a bold, splashy cannonball off the high dive with Sleeping Giants. It bursts at the seams with big ideas and the questions they spawn-How much human life is worth sacrificing in the pursuit of scientific progress? Can humanity be trusted with weapons of ultimate destruction? And the biggest: Are we alone? But all that really matters is that this book is a sheer blast from start to finish. I haven't had this much fun reading in ages' Blake Crouch, author of Dark Matter and the bestselling 'Wayward Pines trilogy' 'As high-concept as it is, Sleeping Giants is a thriller through and through...One of the most promising series kickoffs in recent memory' NPR 'Reminiscent of The Martian and World War Z, Sleeping Giants is a luminous conspiracy yarn that shoots for (and lands among) the stars' Pierce Brown, New York Times bestselling author of Red Rising
