'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 . . .

'Captivating' BUZZFEED

Ina Fabian a dat nota:

'I don’t think either of us will get to grow old, especially if we’re together. The only question is: Do I wanna die young with anyone else?' With the second book of this amazing series I now feel like the world ends. Literally. Not only this was a challenging, can't-get-enough story, but it was also so fast-paced that it felt like swimming through the pages. ' I sincerely hope I'm wrong. I hope a hatch opens on that robot and lets out happy, oddly legged aliens who just want to hug everybody.' The main theme: robots. This time, there is more than one robot. 13 may be too much to handle for humans, that's why the story explodes with action. The story even challenges human race and our existence in details. There were so many raised questions and theories that made me curios and kept my interest until the last page. If the first book was a great, unexpected start, the second book left me speechless most of the time, what can I expect from the third one? Can't wait!
