No, not that Homer.... or that one... d'oh! Anyway, on to the review:
I have read Island 731, Project Nemesis, and Project Maigo, back-to-back-to-back. That being said, it is imperative that before jumping into Maigo, that one read Island 731 as well, since characters and plot points from that wonderful book immigrate to this series.
Project Maigo is a very organic continuation of Project Nemesis. That is, the plot seamlessly picks up where book one leaves off. Project Nemesis was the "Godzilla (1954)" of the series, where it is mainly mankind dealing with the titular Monster. In its sequel, Jeremy Robinson follows the Kaiju tradition and has the main monster Battle other giant monsters.
Project Maigo is a tale about relationships, the bonds that tie us to each other, through love, hate, empathy, ambition, and more. We are privileged to witness the evolution of the main cast's relationships (not a single one remains stagnant, every one has changed in some meaningful way since the last book).
This whole series is worth a read. And here I shall echo the letter by Jeremy Robinson at the end of the book and say, THIS SERIES REALLY NEEDS BE SHOWN ON THE BIG SCREEN, OR AS AN ANIMATED SERIES, OR VIDEO GAME, OR ACTION FIGURES (I would totally pay/purchase any or all of them).
NOTE FOR THE KINDLE VERSION :
The formatting is really off. The Table of Contents Menu shows only "Cover", "Table of Contents" and "The Beginning". The "Table of Contents" and copyright information is actually at the end of the ebook (where it should be towards the front), and the summary/description (what would normally be displayed on the back of the book, or inner flap of the dust cover), is displayed on the second page instead. Not a tremendous issue, not enough to deduct a star, but it makes navigating a pain. Taking a quick peek ahead, the same issues persists with the "Project 731" ebook as well, which is strange, since the "Project Nemesis" ebook was perfectly formatted.
