As a child Rose Franklin made an astonishing discovery: a giant metallic hand buried deep within the earth. As an adult she's dedicated her brilliant scientific career to solving the mystery that began that fateful day: Why was a titanic robot of unknown origin buried in pieces around the world? Years of investigation have produced intriguing answers - and even more perplexing questions. But the truth is closer now than ever before when a second robot, more massive than the first, materializes and lashes out with deadly force.
Now humankind faces a nightmare invasion scenario made real, as more colossal machines touch down across the globe. But Rose and her team at the Earth Defense Corps refuse to surrender. They can turn the tide if they can unlock the last secrets of an advanced alien technology. The greatest weapon humanity wields is knowledge in a do-or-die battle to inherit the Earth, and maybe even the stars.

I still cannot figure out why so many people hated the first book, I mean, i really liked it and I'm unnecessarily picky. Now this book is even better, even though it's a bit of a different flavor.
To recap, the first book was about the mystery of the "sleeping giant" and moved at a sedate pace filled with tension and the unknown. Waking Gods however has a sense of urgency as the repercussions of the mystery of the first book comes to a head. Here, the mystery that drives the plot is something more insidious, but nothing obvious. The unknown is really the most dangerous enemy of all.
It so often feels like I've seen it all, so I don't tend to give very many five star reviews these days. This book did a pretty great job surprising me and making me just completely lose track of time. Seriously, how did I finish this book so fast!? The style of telling the story through a series of records and files is just impeccably done and works naturally, as in no gimmicky feeling or anything.
So yeah, I recommend this book and this series. If you want a bit of a mystery thriller about a what if and the unknown, then pick this up.
Now then, I really really want the next book right now.

THE KNOWN IS FINE, THE UNKNOWN INFINITE
Talking, talking, talking
I liked book one and was slammed by a couple of voters out of the gate. This book I don't understand what people liked about it. I found it very boring and their was way too much discussion.
Full cast is great
