科幻小說家Sylvain Neuvel繼Sleeping Giants後的第二部系列小說。地球出現了更大的外星機器人,一場浩劫即將發生,Rose與她的團隊能否拯救地球?

當Rose還是小女孩時,無意中發現了一條深埋在地底的大型金屬手臂;長大後的Rose一心一意只想找出兒時遭遇的神秘事件背後的真相。一個來歷不明、四分五裂的大型機器人,為何被分別埋在世界各處?經過多年調查,答案讓人振奮,卻也導引出更多讓人迷惑的問題。當第二個更大型的機器人突然出現,並且帶著致命的武力攻擊地球時,真相已經呼之欲出。

就在更多大型的機器人抵達地球時,人類擔心外星人入侵的夢魘成真了。Rose與她在地球防衛公司的團隊拒絕投降,如果他們可以解開先進外星科技的最後秘密,人類就有辦法扭轉頹勢、反敗為勝。發揮所有的知識,人類就能在這生死一戰中接手地球甚至各個星球。

An unknown vessel, not of this world, materializes in London. A colossal figure towering over the city, it makes no move. Is this a peaceful first contact or the prelude to an invasion?

Every child has nightmares. But the only thing scarier than little Eva Reyes' dreams - apocalyptic visions of death and destruction - is the habit they have of coming true...

Scientist Dr Rose Franklin has no memory of the last few years. The strangers she works with say she died, and was brought back to life. The question is not just how ... but why?

Kara Resnik and Vincent Couture fell in love during war, and have found peace since. They are the thin line of defence against what is coming. But they do not know they have been living a lie.

And a man who claims to have the answers has his own agenda. There are things he cannot say - and others he won't.

All pieces of an epic puzzle. One we have been trying to solve since the dawn of time...

Praise for Sylvain Neuvel:

'This year's The Martian. Captivating ... So good and so eerie' Buzzfeed

'Bursts at the seams with big ideas ... 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 Wayward Pines

'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

'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
