Publisher's Summary

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.

Hudson and the local Sherriff, Ashley Collins, suddenly find themselves on the run from a ruthless ex-Special Forces security team, but the human threat is short-lived as something very much not-human destroys the facility and heads for civilization, leaving only a single clue behind-a name scrawled in blood-Nemesis. Working with his team at Fusion Center-P, Sherriff Collins and a surly helicopter pilot named Woodstock, Hudson pursues the creature known as Nemesis, attempts to uncover the corporate secrets behind its creation and accidental release, and tries to comprehend why several clues lead to a murdered little girl named Maigo.

But as the body-count explodes, along with the monster's size, it quickly becomes clear that nothing short of a full military response can slow Nemesis's progress. Coordinating with every branch of the U.S. military, Hudson simultaneously searches for clues about Nemesis's origins and motivations, and leads the counterattack that will hopefully stop the monster before it reaches Boston and its one million residents.

Witness the birth of a legend as Jeremy Robinson, bestselling author of SecondWorld and Ragnarok, combines the pacing of Matthew Reilly with the mystery of James Rollins and creates the first iconic American Kaiju* story since King Kong.

*Kaiju is Japanese for "strange beast." The genre includes classic monsters such as Godzilla, Gamera, Mothra, Rodan and King Ghidorah.

    "just read it!"

    It's awesome! well worth the read or in this case the listen! I have become a fan boy of jeremy robinson and his books! To be honest it been hard to find a series that can hold my attention and cause me to remember each character and its history. Jeremy has done it and he blends characters from his other series together in new books seamlessly!

    Story
    "The kaiju genre is reborn! in PRINT!"
    What made the experience of listening to Project Nemesis the most enjoyable?

    I believe just the great writing and storyweaving in general! and of course I ADORE Kaiju (I have loved the genre since I was a child) and feel far too few are brave enough to approach this genre any more.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Project Nemesis?

    Probably the rebirth of Maigo in the lab....she is not a kaiju yet but she is a true threat to be reckoned with.


    Which character – as performed by Jeffrey Kafer – was your favorite?

    I think Jeffrey does amazing on all the character voices in this.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, and I did.

    Story
    "Godzilla with personality and plot"
    What made the experience of listening to Project Nemesis the most enjoyable?

    Good scene setting. Everyman characters in wildly abnormal situations


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I identified with Hudson the main protagonist, but thought Lilly was an intriguing character. Though she could have used more development


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

    A book written in first persom is almost always better listened to than read. Brings back the old (fish) story telling tradition.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    That would be a spoiler.


    Any additional comments?

    Jeffery Kafer reminded me very much of the voice of Jack Webb as Sargent Friday on Dragnet (in a good way).

    Story
    "Excellent mental 'visuals' of Kaiju rampaging thru"

    I've been a Kaiju fan since my first Godzilla movie..and never before had I read/listened to and actual novel of Kaiju monsters stomping thru the US of A.

    I found both the writing by Jeremy Robinson and the great narration by Jeffery Kafer to be exquisite. I listen to books as I go to sleep, as well as during my daily housecleaning or shopping etc. This was a story I couldn't stop....and let me tell you the going to sleep part gave me dreams of "Nemesis" doing her best to smash New England.

    The narrator has a great, slightly gravelly voice-one that gets into a Kaiju story with grit. I can't think of a better narrator for Robinsons works and am so pleased that the same narrator voices the series. Nothing more frustrating than changing narrators in the middle of the terror!

    For those who enjoy Godzilla etc movies and comic books but who have become adults, this is a series not to be missed.

    I love that Robinson makes "Nemesis" a sympathetic creature as she destroys the Boston harbor. The true bad guy is the army dude who, apparently, is not dead and is going to appear in other books in the series.

    A truly fun group of books..do start with the first one..after that it isn't absolutely necessary to read them in order, but it helps.

    Loved them! Recommended Highly

    Story
    "Came up just a bit short..."

    I listened to the prequel to this book, Island 731, before this one. I really enjoyed Island 731 pretty much from beginning to end, but found myself struggling to just as invested into this story as that one. It may have to do with the first book going a little more in depth into the science or ideas behind the creatures involved than did this one. In conclusion I'm not saying this book is bad, just didn't live up to expectations.

    "Nemesis rules!"

    Great kaiju and city stomping action. Did not like the gore but it was nice to get inside the head of Nemesis.
