A page-turning debut in the tradition of Michael Crichton, World War Z, and The Martian, Sleeping Giants is a thriller fueled by an earthshaking mystery—and a fight to control a gargantuan power. A girl named Rose is riding her new bike near her home in Deadwood, South Dakota, when she falls through the earth. She wakes up at the bottom of a square hole, its walls glowing with intricate carvings. But the firemen who come to save her peer down upon something even stranger: a little girl in the palm of a giant metal hand. Seventeen years later, the mystery of the bizarre artifact remains unsolved—its origins, architects, and purpose unknown. Its carbon dating defies belief; military reports are redacted; theories are floated, then rejected. But some can never stop searching for answers. Rose Franklin is now a highly trained physicist leading a top secret team to crack the hand’s code. And along with her colleagues, she is being interviewed by a nameless interrogator whose power and purview are as enigmatic as the provenance of the relic. What’s clear is that Rose and her compatriots are on the edge of unraveling history’s most perplexing discovery—and figuring out what it portends for humanity. But once the pieces of the puzzle are in place, will the result prove to be an instrument of lasting peace or a weapon of mass destruction? Praise for Sleeping Giants “Reminiscent of The Martian and World War Z, Sleeping Giants is a luminous conspiracy yarn that shoots for (and lands among) the stars.”—Pierce Brown, New York Times bestselling author of Red Rising “As high-concept as it is, Sleeping Giants is a thriller through and through. . . . Not only is Sleeping Giants one of the most promising series kickoffs in recent memory, it’s a smart demonstration of how science fiction can honor its traditions and reverse-engineer them at the same time.”—NPR “Neuvel weaves a complex tapestry with ancient machinery buried in the Earth, shadow governments, and geopolitical conflicts. But the most surprising thing about the book may just be how compelling the central characters are in the midst of these larger-than-life concepts. . . . I can’t stop thinking about it.”—Chicago Review of Books “First-time novelist Sylvain Neuvel does a bold, splashy cannonball off the high dive with Sleeping Giants. It bursts at the seams with big ideas and the questions they spawn—How much human life is worth sacrificing in the pursuit of scientific progress? Can humanity be trusted with weapons of ultimate destruction? And the biggest: Are we alone? But all that really matters is that this book is a sheer blast from start to finish. I haven’t had this much fun reading in ages.”—Blake Crouch, author of Dark Matter and the bestselling Wayward Pines trilogy “A remarkable debut . . . Reminiscent of Max Brooks’s World War Z, the story’s format effectively builds suspense.”—Library Journal (debut of the month) “This stellar debut novel . . . masterfully blends together elements of sci-fi, political thriller and apocalyptic fiction. . . . A page-turner of the highest order.”—Kirkus Reviews (starred review) “[A] fascinating first novel . . . This intriguing tale is entirely worthy of an adult audience.”—Publishers Weekly From the Hardcover edition.

This book is written for those who are spiritually asleep to be awakened in order to carry out the Great Commission of Jesus Christ. To operate in the supernatural led by the Holy Spirit that it may be said of the modern-day Christians as it was said of the early Christians; they are turning the world upside down. Wake up, the alarm is sounding. This is no time to press the snooze button and continue to doze, because the rapture is imminent. In a dream, I saw a multitude of people flying like birds into the sky. It seemed as if they were being drawn up by a giant magnet. I said in amazement, "This is it. The rapture is taking place." I saw many people walking around on the ground, seemingly unaware of what was taking place around them. Suddenly I was taken up by the spirit of God as well and flown around in the sky, but just as quickly as I was taken up, I was placed firmly back down on the ground. Wake Up the Sleeping Giants will explain in detail why I was placed back on the ground and not raptured at that time. Also how I became spiritually awakened with a mandate to help sound the alarm for others who are yet spiritually asleep. Jesus is coming for His bride, the Church.

AMERICA “America is the land of the free and home of the brave”. At least this used to be how it was. Now, it is more like “America is the land of the corrupt and home of the ignorant”. Here we have an uncontrollable disease of corruption at its finest. “WE THE PEOPLE” are simply lacking knowledge or information of who we choose to elect for a government office. Who we think we are voting for just from the looks or what conspires out of their very mouths but do we really know who they are in essence of how they qualify in a particular role of office? In order to justify the means, the book you are about to read will enlighten you as to whom is corrupt and for how long it has been into existence. We will evaluate the circumstances to see why these events or things were corrupted out of revenge or sheer greed of money, to gain power. Some who are mentioned within this book are not so much corrupt but do hold a very thin line of being so. The Constitution pertains to ALL Americans and especially government officials who were elected to make sure our rights are not trampled on regardless of race, religion or place of origin. Whenever these rights are continuously being abused by the representatives of our government then it surely is time for the “Sleeping Giants MUST Awake Again.” (America) There has to be a big change within the entire government ‘system’. It has to take place from city mayors, governors, legislation, federal court system, all the way up to the United States President. Action speaks louder than words, therefore, what actions are taken by our congress people should be monitored closer by the people so our rights are upheld in an honorable fashion. When outsiders other than American citizens are given our constitutional rights, being illegal immigrates and then treason by fault of the U.S. government is in play. IMPEACHMENT is in order to follow through immediately. We can control the corruption if we discontinue the dynasties and take time to investigate whom we are going to vote for better. When any candidate try to change any of the ‘Constitution or ‘Bill of Rights,’ for their own personal needs, it threatens the people of any age groups. It dishonors our flag and country, dishonors other political or religious organizations, camouflaging, misconduct by prejudice, unexplainable expenses for diplomatic reasons while traveling, parties while there is a crisis going on which requires their immediate attention or gives aid to the undeserving before their own kind (Americans) should be impeached immediately with no benefits herewith. ALL must take drug test and have background checks. The law is for everybody no exemption because you happen to be a politician. Only you and I can hope to enforce these rules of conduct, to have a better tomorrow and of human decency for all Americans. IMPEACH OUR FRAUDULENT PRESIDENT ‘BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA’

If you are a: Front-Line Manager, Supervisor, Department Head, Foreman, Section Leader, Group Leader, Team Leader, Project Leader, Sergeant, Squad Leader, Teacher/Educator, Coordinator, or Senior Professional then you are a First Line Leader. You are your organization's first line of offense and defense. So what do First Line Leaders typically do? They make short-term decisions that directly impact and guide the performance of team members or subordinates. For instance, a sergeant drills his squad ahead of deployment; a store department head coordinates shift schedules; and a teacher guides a student's daily work activity. First Line Leaders provide direction or coaching to non-supervisory personnel and typically provide performance assessment and recognition of team members. You and your organization may not recognize, respect, and appreciate your significant role as a First Line Leader, and when your significance is not recognized, utilized, and reinforced -- you become a sleeping giant. It's time to ask the difficult question: Am I a sleeping giant? Organizations tolerate sleeping giants because training and development of giants requires attention, effort and money. Has your organization under-trained and under-developed you? Is your organization being shortsighted about your potential to contribute? A "yes" answer to either question is the sound of being subdued and lulled to sleep. If this is the case, you and your organization are in trouble! Sleeping giants -- THIS IS YOUR WAKE-UP CALL! Waking-up means there is a new awareness that you need to be both an effective manager and an effective leader. Do you know what "effective" truly means? Giants are looked up to because they stand out. But standing out for being an eyesore is vastly different to standing out for inspirational management and leadership.

Learn how to access blessings, gifts, and favor passed down through our ancestor DNA so that we can fulfill all of our heart's desires and be who we are called to be. Now is the time to claim your birthright, unlock your inheritance and awaken the Sleeping Giants!
