    I hadn't been this excited about the last book in a series in a while and mehThere were some interesting parts I was really curious to learn about the aliens and I appreciated some of the author's thoughts but the dialogues felt too forced and really tried to be funny and sassy and it ended up a bit of a let down I still think it's a fun fast paced series but the ending didn't blow me away

In her childhood Rose Franklin accidentally discovered a giant metal hand buried beneath the ground outside Deadwood South Dakota As an adult Dr Rose Franklin led the team that uncovered the rest of the body parts wh. 455 starsA satisfying philosophical and thought provoking conclusion to Themis Files trilogyThe Themis Files trilogy began with Rose Franklin finding an arm of a giant robot since then the first and second book has been pretty focused on the mystery surrounding this robot Neuvel took a different direction in Only Human and like the title said this is a book that s centered around the source of almost every problem in the world humanity I hate this world People are small They re ignorant and they re happy to stay that way They make an effort to They ll spend time and energy finding ways not to learn things just to feel comfortable with their beliefs The story was told in two periods of time juggling between the present timeline which is nine years after the events in the Waking Gods while the other timeline is there to fill in the time gap Neuvel concluded his trilogy by using these two timelines wonderfully in this short book Although I didn t expect the storytelling to go with this direction I really can t imagine a satisfying conclusion for this trilogy Dealing with a lot of racial and religious issues this is a book that will make you really think and yet at the same time Neuvel never forget to put hope for the future and familial love in this small book I can t make the forest grow faster because I want it to I can t will it to grow It takes time I hoped it could happen during my lifetime but I don t think it can All I can do is plant some seeds take care of the seedlings and hope someone else does it after I m gone There are tons of great lines like this in this book reading this conclusion will definitely make you contemplate the situation of our world There were an incredible amount of things talked about that I thought was very relatable and applicable to our society For the past couple of days Surabaya a city in Indonesia has been terrorized by suicide bombing done by a family how sick is that No I m not joking the suicide bombers was one family from their parents to their descendants in churches thinking they re going to heaven by injuring and killing kids or adults who only wanted to pray I found this next line to be very relatable to this situation If you re using bombs instead of words that means you re banking on people giving you what you want out of fear instead of reason That s never a good sign Plus the character s personalities and developments were spectacular here Contrary to my experience with the previous books the epistolary format here really helps in giving realistic and distinctive voice to every character We re not heroes No one is Every movie we watch every book we read we see people who can solve every problem face every danger all on their own But in real life Vincent we just call the cops That s what I did Unlike the previous two books there aren t a lot of giant robots fighting here there is only one action seuence in this book and honestly I m happy with that Why The reason for this is that I thought of the actions in this trilogy to not reach its maximum potential The only minor issue I have in this trilogy that s still true here is because there weren t a lot of vivid images formed in my head during my time of reading due to the epistolary format For me although this format offers a compelling dialogue and addictive storytelling it sacrificed vivid images and action seuences because everything was told strictly through dialogues files and interviews This is still slightly evident here but this is just a minor issue though it didn t affect my enjoyment of this book that muchOnly Human ended up being an incredibly satisfying conclusion it s definitely my favorite out of the trilogy This trilogy also doesn t belong in the hard sci fi genre and I don t think anyone will have any difficulty diving into this series I highly recommend this trilogy to anyone who s looking for a great sci fi trilogy that keeps on getting better with each installment eventually leading to a captivating and satisfying ending I definitely will be waiting for Neuvel s next book and see where he goes from here Series review Sleeping Giants 35 stars Waking Gods 45 stars Only Human 455 stars Themis Files trilogy 11515 stars You can find this and the rest of my Adult EpicHigh Fantasy Sci Fi reviews at BookNest

After nearly ten years on another world Rose returns to find her old alliances forfeit and the planet in shambles And she must pick up the pieces of the Earth Defense Corps as her own friends turn against each other.. 35ish stars After the cliffhanger ending of book 2 Waking Gods I was expecting this book to pick up right after the last one ended When I read the synopsis Now after nearly ten years on another world Rose returns to find her old alliances forfeit and the planet in shambles I was completely justifiably indignant that 10 years had apparently passed side stepping that whole situation Why end on a cliffhanger then Luckily that 10 year gap is given plenty of detail as the book s timeline alternates between those 10 years and the current timeline Although still why end on a cliffhanger if you don t plan on coming immediately back to the cliff to resolve it This is my least favorite of the three in the series although I still enjoyed it Lots of social commentary keep it relevant and thought provoking The ending is predictably sappy although gratifyingly so The last giant alien robot battle saves it from being kind of boring Lots of action and daddy issues combine to make a satisfying final conflict It s just too bad it took the entire book to get there whereas Waking Gods was battle after battle of awesomeness The audio is good as always particularly Charlie Anson s performance as Vincent Couture he s British but puts on a very convincing uebecois accent and William Hope s as both Eugene Govender and Mr Burns But yokits what was up with Eva s narration Where d she pick up that awful Jersey accent all of a suddenPosted in Mr Philip s Library

Ich together form Themis a powerful robot of mysterious alien origin She along with linguist Vincent pilot Kara and the unnamed Interviewer protected the Earth from geopolitical conflict and alien invasion alike Now. We re a bunch of babies a few billion of them all scared to death We re going to kill ourselves if we re left to our own devices Ok I have t loved this trilogy as much as I d hoped I definitely think book 2 was my favourite so much happened with so many twists In comparison in book 3 NOTHING HAPPENED It s just so much back and forthIt didn t help that one of my faves wasn t in it DON T WORRY I WON T SAY WHOEva is just a brat I couldn t stand her and there is no other way to describe her She is an absolute bitch to her dad and I hated itI d blame the writing style but I thought I d gotten used to the different types of writing interviews diary entries etcI just found it all a bit tedious I didn t like the characters enough bar Rose and Vincent and the storyline didn t grab me enough this time3 stars for a bit of entertainment and a good round up of the trilogy Never be sorry about things you have no control over You ll just give yourself ulcers
