Publisher's Summary

From the New York Times best-selling author of the Minecraft-inspired
Gameknight999 series, with over two million copies in print.

Who do you trust when you can’t believe your eyes?

A nuclear apocalypse has devastated the human race, turning survivors into four groups of warring Giants, tree-dwelling Dryads, remnant humans, and evil radioactive scavengers. But, not everyone appears as they seem. 

Brianna MineShaker was born a giant. However, she’s smaller than normal, bullied by her peers, and exiled to Harmony School, a place for misfits.

At Harmony, there is little peace as Brianna’s size continues to attract abuse, leaving her as an outcast. But then, she witnesses a shocking event...something is taking over the bodies of the other giants at the school.

Faced with an impossible choice, Brianna must venture into the dangerous Wastelands to find the truth, a place where no one has ever made it back alive. 

There is no one to trust, except three unexpected companions. If their plan fails, Brianna will never make it home or even survive to help save her family. 

Beware of what lurks in the Wastelands. But, also beware of a little giant with a big attitude. 

Perfect for fans of the Hunger Games, Divergent, and the Maze
Runner series, The Giant’s Giant is a gripping story of a dystopian
world transformed by bravery, tolerance, and friendship. Start listening today.

Mark Cheverton is a former high school physics and math teacher who became a research physicist and is now an internationally published New York Times best-selling author, with 24 novels on bookshelves worldwide.

Wow! Exciting.

This was awesome. Twist and turns. Beautifully navigated between all the corruption. I haven’t been this excited about a fiction book in a long while. I’ll definitely be ready for #2. The narrator really hit the mark too. I’m glad I have this book in my collection. I’ll have the people in my life listening soon!

Brianna is my daughter's hero

Me and my daughter listened to this book on a long road trip. It passed the time away very quickly. I loved the book because it had a heroine my daughter could appreciate. We need more female heroine's and I can't wait for the next book in the series to come out!

A thrilling epic

Wow, so when is this going to be on HBO or Netflix? Lol. Such a great tale of persevering in the face of adversity. I love the new world that is being developed alongside the characters. Our hero is always told she cannot accomplish anything and then musters up more than a little bit of courage to do what she sets out to do. Can I swear? Maybe I shouldn't, so I'll just say that it's just blank-ing epic!

Very Entertaining

I have enjoyed this audiobook very much, following Brianna through her experiences of constant conflict and fights. She has a very strong personality and is very capable and confident unlike what others say about her. She stands up for what she thinks is right. The story itself is very creative and keeps you hooked till the end.

Tolkien, R. Martin, Gaiman… take a seat!

Cheverton takes a unique approach which leaves the listener utterly engrossed and practically salivating for the next chapter! So many fantasy authors of recent years have just not hit the spot for me personally, which is why this epic left me so satisfied. Damsels and knights; I believe we have found our new savior in Cheverton!

Great Fantasy Storie About Brianna!

I have always liked to read fantasy stories. Glad I bought this book by Mark Cheverton, the story is very interesting. It makes me want to continue writing my fantasy novels.

The narrator does his job well with several voices different, and brings you in the adventure. I recommend it, and can't wait to see what happens next. Well done!

Epic coming of age story!

I love fantasies and this is the first giant story I've read and it didn't disappoint! I got immersed in Brianna's journey in learning one's self and in finding her place in the world. Her struggles, the dilemma she faced, finding her convictions, and finally being at peace with herself were a treat to listen too. The plot is interesting and it's fun learning the intricacies of each clan. Great things come in smaller packages and though Brianna maybe the smallest giant, she certainly packed a punch and made her mark. Great start on a series!

Great Book!

I thoroughly enjoyed listening. My genre; I love escaping to this type of world! I realised I was getting into the story when I became increasingly annoyed at the heroine's antics in the early parts of the book! I think a great writer sucks you into a novel, and this is exactly what was done to me. The plot flawlessly intertwined and was easy to follow.

The narration was brilliant, and I loved the different tones applied to the characters; they all fitted perfectly.

Well done on an excellent book!

Won't let you touch the pause button

This is truly a fantastic story!
I love anything post-apocalyptic, and this one reminded me of Fallout, where the characters also try to build and survive in what's left of the world and the creatures in it.
Brianna is an adorable character, strong, courageous and easy to resonate with - I could particularly relate to her fate being an outcast because she looks and is different, and doesn't quite fit into any of the categories everyone else fits in.
I don't want to give too much away, but the storyline is fantastic, it grips a hold of you! I never wanted to pause, and listened to the entire book almost in one sitting!
Simply an amazing listen, an easy escape to another world and the story touches your heart. Can't wait for more!

Absolutely epic!

Give me a post-apocalyptic universe any day. Brianna is a relatable heroin and really pulls off the perpetual underdog role so you always find yourself rooting for her. It's a YA-coming of age style tale but with added giants and combat scenes.

There are elements that reminded me of the Maze Runner series but with better character development and more twists and turns. It's fast paced but it never feels like the story is running away from you. Lots of intrigue and suspense throughout which makes for a thoroughly enjoyable listen. Amy Gorelow does a fantastic job on the narration, lots of range in her voice which helps tie everything together.

Hats off to Mark because he's knocked this one out of the park.

finally something new to fantasy!

This is a great story of friendship, self-discovery and betrayal, but more importantly, it’s something new to the genre. I’m so tired of vampires and werewolves, or wizards, or people with special abilities . . . This is completely original – what’s better than giants smashing evil villains with their warhammers. A really great story line that will have u hooked for hours. definitely a 10 out of 10. i look forward to listening to what else the author has in the future, Bravo Mark!

Right up my street! 10/10

I'm a big post-apocalyptic fan... I love a good end of days storyline with supernatural threats i.e. the walking dead (the first few seasons)... attack on titan... so this book really took me on a rollercoaster. The story is complemented by awesome narration to keep you engaged throughout. Can't wait for the next one!
