Brilliant scientist Rose Franklin has devoted her adult life to solving the mystery she accidentally stumbled upon as a child: a huge metal hand buried beneath the ground outside Deadwood, South Dakota. The discovery set in motion a cataclysmic chain of events with geopolitical ramifications. Rose and the Earth Defense Corps raced to master the enigmatic technology, as giant robots suddenly descended on Earth's most populous cities, killing one hundred million people in the process.

I’m not a picky listener, and honestly have never left a written review. But the reading for Eva sounded like Snooki from Jersey Shore...absolutely terrible.
The story as well was thin. I finished it just because I read the first 2 books.
