Project Nemesis: A Kaiju Thriller

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.

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.

    "Take my money"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Project Nemesis to be better than the print version?

    If you're an audio version fan, then yes- absolutely. Otherwise I'd say they are probably equal, I just prefer audiobooks these days.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Loved them all, of course, but I'm partial to Sheriff Collins. She's a badass partner.


    Have you listened to any of Jeffrey Kafer’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I haven't listened to Jeffrey Kafer's narration before, but after the Kaiju series, I will be again.


    Any additional comments?

    This audiobook is excellent to listen to. With all the action involved, you feel like you're actually watching the scenes take place and Jeffrey Kafer performs Jeremy Robinson's words perfectly. Tons of action, humor, fun, and a giant monster! I definitely recommend checking this out.

    "Amazing story by the perfect voice!"

    Project Nemesis: A Kaiju Thriller written by Jeremy Robinson and narrated by Jeffrey Kafer was one of those stories that leave you wanting more. I even found myself rooting for the creature in the end. Be prepared for a powerhouse of ups and downs with all the action you would expect from Robinson.

    Jeffrey Kafer's voice was perfect for this story, he was easy to understand and his inflections were spot on. The perfect pairing.

    "Nemesis is one killer Kaiju"

    Project Nemesis was an unbelievable ride. Godzilla who? I prefer my Kaiju Nemesis style. I am looking forward to Finding out what Maigo has been up to in the next installment. Hudson, Collins and Woodstock make a great team and kick some kaiju butt. A very heartful monster story with some cool twists and lots of chaos, mayhem and destruction. Just the ride I was looking for.

    Jeffrey Kafer once again does an awesome job bringing Robinson's characters alive in this lively, fast paced adrenaline filled story.

    Story
    "One of my new favorites"
    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.

    "Fantastic!"

    I couldn't recommend this book enough to anyone who's fond of classic Japanese movie monsters like Godzilla and Mothra!

    Jeffrey Kafers smooth delivery draws you in, makes it real and doesn't let you off the hook until the last sentence has been read.

    Jeremy Robinsons writing is exquisite. Cant wait to grab the next in the series!

    Any additional comments?

    I put off listening to this book because I didn't think 'Kaiju' would be something I would be interested in, however, I couldn't turn it off. I should know better than to doubt a book written by Jeremy Robinson, he has a wonderful ability to incorporate great monsters and great characters that you want to hear about more. I hope we see more from Nemesis and Jon Hudson. Jeffrey Kafer once again does a brilliant job of capturing the attention of the reader and keeping that attention through the entire story.

    "Fusion Center-P is on the job!!"
    What made the experience of listening to Project Nemesis the most enjoyable?

    This book has everything! An angry Momma Bear! A giant Monster! Intrigue! A cranky former Marine pilot!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Woodstock the pilot! Nothing makes a good story like a cranky old Marine!


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The flying squirrel suit! No, wait, the bear!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    This book is a blast! I've listened to it twice so far, it never gets old!


    Any additional comments?

    You can't go wrong with this one! It's got everything!
