Themis Files3 books in series
Presented as a case file, this innovative series draws listeners into the mystery of a bizarre alien relic and its power to save the world—or destroy it.
A mixture of science fiction, political thriller, and suspense, Themis Files has been compared to works such as The Martian, Pacific Rim, and World War Z—but nothing else matches the thrill of this inventive series that listeners describe as “amazing."
As a girl, Rose Franklin literally fell through the Earth and landed, deep below its surface, right into the palm of a giant metal hand. Now, 17 years later, Rose is a physicist leading a highly trained team of scientists as they search for the remnants of a huge robot scattered across the planet. Ever since that freaky accident, it has been her mission to uncover the secrets behind the strange artifact. Place by place and piece by piece, she's getting closer to reassembling the robot, but still digging into its mystery. Why was a giant robot buried in parts around the world in the first place? And once Rose and her team piece together this giant robot puzzle, will the results lead to peace or mass destruction?
Themis Files is told through interviews, journal entries, news reports, and scientific documentation, making the strange story seem at once chillingly real and shockingly incredible. Adding layers to the narrative, each audiobook in this gripping trilogy is performed by a dynamic full cast. Among the talented ensemble of narrators, Laurel Lefkow voices Rose Franklin and Andy Seycombe plays the interviewer.
Author Sylvain Neuvel dropped out of high school at age 15. Before writing about aliens and giant robots, he was a journalist, worked in soil decontamination, sold ice cream in California, taught linguistics in India, and worked as a software engineer in Montreal.
