Review Praise for The Test:
“Thought-provoking and disturbing. A cautionary tale illuminated with dark enlightenment.”―Kirkus reviews, starred review.
Praise for the Themis Files
“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
«But the most surprising thing about the book may just be how compelling the central characters are in the midst of these larger-than-life concepts. … I can’t stop thinking about it.”―The Chicago Review of Books
“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
About the Author Sylvain Neuvel has taught linguistics in India, and worked as a software engineer in Montreal. He is also a certified translator, though he wishes he were an astronaut. His girlfriend would have him believe that he has too many toys, so he writes about aliens and giant robots as a blatant excuse to build action figures (for his son, of course). His debut, Sleeping Giants, was described by NPR as “one of the most promising series kickoffs in recent memory.”
