Book: Sylvain Neuvel's "Waking Gods"

For my third book of the year, I chose the second book of the Themis Files, Sylvain Neuvel's "Waking Gods".

The book is written in the same memoir style as the first book "Sleeping Giants".  The story is told through transcripts and journal entires.  The machine, a huge robot christened Themis after the titan, has been assembled which has attracted the attention of the alien creators.

The action is paced well and what I thought were major characters lost their lives, a surprise as I read.  Unfortunately, two of the characters who died were also my favorite.  Oh well.

I enjoyed this chapter of the Themis Files and I look forward to the next ... yes, the book ends with a classic cliffhanger.  I gave the book four stars on Goodreads as it kept me interested and wondering what would happen next.
