    Great conclusion to a fantastic trilogy!

    This was so good! The whole trilogy is really amazing. I actually remember reading the first book in the trilogy, Sleeping Giants, and thinking that it was just okay. Everything changed when I decided to try the audiobook for the story. I was really able to appreciate the story much more with the help of the narrators. When I picked up the second book, Waking Gods, I was worried that I wouldn't be as impressed by the book in print after my experience with this previous book but I liked that book right from the start. The same can be said for this book. I thought that Waking Gods ended with just a bit of a cliffhanger and I couldn't wait to see what was going to happen to these characters. This was one of my most anticipated reads for the year and I was not disappointed. This review will contain spoilers for the previous two books in the trilogy. I went into this book expecting it to pick up right where the last book ended and it did to a point. The first part of the book goes back and forth between a time 9 years after the previous book and various points during those 9 years. I had so many questions about what had happened to everyone during those 9 years and I am glad that we got to see some of the more important events. We do learn more from the characters as they are being interviewed about their lives during those lost years as well. So Vincent, Eva, and Rose have spent a significant amount of time living on an alien planet. You would think that they would have changed a lot during those years. They did experience some changes but the most dramatic changes happened here on Earth. Our planet has not done well during those years. Things are bad. Countries are power hungry and using the robots to intimidate other nations while their people are being treated poorly. I loved the characters in this book. I really feel like I have got the chance to really know Rose and Vincent during the course of the trilogy. Eva is much older and I liked her character more in this book. Many of the key players from previous books show up in this installment as well. I was always thrilled to get to see these familiar characters play a part in the story even when they were a character that I loved to hate. There were a couple of new characters that seemed to fit into the story quite flawlessly as well. This story was just as exciting as I had anticipated. How could a book about giant alien robots be anything but exciting? Anyway, this book had all of the action scenes that I had hoped to see. There were quite a few surprises along the way and I found myself turning pages as fast as I could just to see what would happen next. I was somewhat surprised by how things worked out in this one and it really was a good surprise. I was very satisfied by how everything ended. I would highly recommend this series to others. This is an exciting and highly imaginative trilogy that has been a whole lot of fun. I do plan to purchase a copy of the audiobook of this one for a re-read in the near future. I can't wait to see what Sylvain Neuvel comes up with next! I received a digital review copy of this book from Random House Publishing Group - Ballantine via NetGalley.

    Only Human a breakdown

    Only Human is the third instalment in the Themis files trilogy by Sylvain Neuvel that has followed our cast of characters from the time of finding the pieces of an ancient giant robot located over the surface of our planet to a full scale invasion that wiped out billions of humans in the blink of an eye, all due to a case of mistaken dna. In Only Human we find our characters as castaways on the alien home world in the midst of political unrest primarily due to the events that took place on Terra (earth). During this time Rose, Vincent, Eva and the General try to fit in and the group seems to be divided on whether returning to Terra is necessary. Much of the novel is reminiscent of WWll when segregation took place based on ones nationality and lineage. From the genocide of Jews in Nazi occupied Germany to Japanese being forced into camps here in North America because we were at war with their country abroad. I found this novel to be more complex than its predecessors and it asked the reader to question such subjects as morality vs. legality per say. So there was much more of a heavy tone I felt in this volume that was unexpected but, not unpleasant. Still there was that humour that was accompanied in the first two novels as well which came from characters such as the General, Eva and her Father Vincent and their clashes as she hit her teens and good ole Mr. Burns. Probably the most memorable part of the book for me was when Eva reads a letter that was given to her by her father Vincent, from her now long passed mother Kara. That was tough to read for me and kind of caught me off guard emotionally. All in all a very satisfying conclusion to a really great sci-fi series that I hope everyone gets the chance to try out. Easy 5 stars throughout!
