One day, a girl named Rose Franklin stumbles upon a giant metallic hand covered in intricate carvings buried near her home in Deadwood, South Dakota. Seventeen years later, Rose is still trying to solve its mysteries, now as a physicist in charge of a top secret team determined to unlock the secrets this technology holds. As she and her team get closer to assembling the truth—a robot buried in pieces around the globe—new challenges appear that may threaten the fate of the world.


Will the team’s discovery be a means of peace or a weapon of mass destruction? If robots take over the Earth, can it be retaken? And what part will Rose play in the ultimate outcome?

The Themis Files:

A History of What Comes Next by Sylvain Neuvel


Showing that truth is stranger than fiction, Sylvain Neuvel weaves a scfi thriller reminiscent of Blake Crouch and Andy Weir, blending a fast moving, darkly satirical look at 1940s rocketry with an exploration of the amorality of progress and the nature of violence in A History of What Comes Next.


Always run, never fight.


Preserve the knowledge.


Survive at all costs.


Take them to the stars.


Over 99 identical generations, Mia’s family has shaped human history to push them to the stars, making brutal, wrenching choices and sacrificing countless lives. Her turn comes at the dawn of the age of rocketry. Her mission: to lure Wernher Von Braun away from the Nazi party and into the American rocket program, and secure the future of the space race.

But Mia’s family is not the only group pushing the levers of history: an even more ruthless enemy lurks behind the scenes.

A darkly satirical first contact thriller, as seen through the eyes of the women who make progress possible and the men who are determined to stop them…
