    Jon Hudson, lead investigator for the Department of Homeland Security's Fusion Center-P, thinks his job is a joke. While other Fusion Centers focus on thwarting terrorist activity, Hudson's division is tasked with handling paranormal threats to national security, of which there have been zero during his years at the DHS. When yet another Sasquatch sighting leads to a research facility in the backwoods of Maine, disguised as an abandoned Nike missile site, Hudson's job becomes deadly serious.

    Where does Project Nemesis rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Its definitely up there with the best books Ive read/listened to.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Cant pick a favorite character because nearly all the characters were intriguing in some way. Hudson saw huge character developement throughout the book from regular dude on a mission to fearless leader and more. This book is mainly in his 1st person perspective. Collins has a similar developement. Even the Kaiju has a very interesting personality that might as well surprise everyone during its various chapters where the author leaves Hudsons 1st person perspective to narrate the what the kaiju is doing in 3rd person. its very well done.


    What does Jeffrey Kafer bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Kafers performance was great. I enjoy a narrator that distinguishes characters with different pitch voices and accents. He read the book very well and has a pleasant voice for a thriller.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    wierd question I dont know how to answer, but throughout the book, I was constantly thinking "this book is laid out like the perfect Kaiju film". the book felt like a true action thriller film, theres just no shortage of fast paced action.


    Any additional comments?

    I bought this book Saturday at night and ended up spending the entire next sunday in bed just enjoying this audiobook until I finished sunday night. Being an avid Godzilla fan, I was very excited to pick this up and by the end I just thought "Nemesis would give Godzilla a run for his money". Pretty terrifying yet Magnificent monster.

    in terms of plot, this book lacks strongly. basically, what you learn early on about the general plot from the summary is what you should expect. There is 1 mystery that i had a fun time trying to guess, yet I was underwhelmed when the mystery was resolved. What made me dislike the book was the dominant/submissive personalities.

    Basically the main female lead is a dominant type, meaning she wont give in to anyone, and since shes an alpha as well, not even her own alpha can command her to do anything. this all carries into sex, where the female lead is fighting and cursing her alpha while lusting and wanting sex. its a retarded thing because after all that fighting and cursing(quite colorful cursing I might add), she is content and sexually sated. its it gives off the impression that this book is aimed at women with rape fetishes. it makes no sense at all when your listening and it ultimately makes half the book less interesting. skip this one as its crap...

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I would remove the prophecy from this book. nothing ruins a good book quite like a prophecy to spoil the ending for you. especially when the prophecy is given in some random retarded way. after the prophecy is told, you immediately think "that wasnt couldve been left out easily".

    I would also change make events clearer. the book seemed rushed in too many places, especially the end.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    it was rushed, plain and simple. And of course, this cant be a true trilogy without a surprise 4th book. at this point I already know what the 4th book is going to be about thanks to the random spoiler in the middle of the book, so I wouldnt bother getting the 4th.


    Have you listened to any of Kevin Gray and Aiko Nakasone ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    they did a great job narrating. just as good as the other books in the series.
