Publisher's Summary

Jon Hudson, head of the Department of Homeland Security's Fusion Center - Paranormal Division, is haunted by Boston's destruction at the hands of Nemesis, a 300-foot-tall monster with the heart of a murdered little girl, Maigo. In the time since Boston fell and Nemesis retreated to the ocean's depths, Hudson has helped prepare the United States against future attacks. But no one is prepared for what rises from the depths.

Five Kaiju attack cities and consume the world's citizens in an unstoppable rampage around the globe. But it soon becomes apparent that these attacks aren't all random events. Hudson is targeted, putting the FC-P headquarters, known as the Crow's Nest, and his team, in the very large crosshairs. General Lance Gordon, a man who carries Nemesis' vengeful heart in his chest, directs the Kaiju, and when Hudson finds protection from an unlikely source, the General turns his attention to his next target.

While Gordon and his Kaiju storm toward Washington, D.C., Hudson, along with his team and some new and unusual allies, race to stand in their path, hoping to spare the nation - and the world - from destruction. But salvation at the end of all things will come only through the gravest of sacrifices.

With Project Nemesis, Jeremy Robinson introduced the world of popular fiction to Kaiju, a word that has become popularized by the movie Pacific Rim, and is associated with classic movie monsters such as Godzilla and Gamera. In the year since the release of Project Nemesis, the audiobook has become the best-selling original Kaiju novel of all time, and it is being featured in the video game Colossal Kaiju Combat: Fall of Nemesis. In Project Maigo, Robinson amps up the scale, the characters and the city-stomping action, treating listeners to a truly monstrous experience typically reserved for the big screen.

Must read sequel

Any additional comments?

This was a really fun, action-packed story. At times the story has you laughing, crying and cheering. I hope we get more in this series. Jeffrey Kafer is superb as usual.

LOVE IT. FANTASTIC STORYLINE. WONDERFUL PERFORMANCES,

Very enjoyable. Loved every bit of it. Action packed and performed by Jeffrey Kafer beautifully. He brought the story to live with all the different voices and the tension and emotions were so well played out. I am going to book three now and I hope there will be more books on this series and that Jeffrey Kafer will be the narrator. Much thanks to Jeremy Robinson for writing such fantastic books.

AWESOME book!

Would you listen to Project Maigo again? Why?

I feel Jeremy Robinson is a literary genius who is not afraid to approach a VERY underserved genre in literature...Kaiju.

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

Probably the attack on Sydney/

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

He was great as usual.

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

I was impressed by the entire book.

You cannot help but get drawn in

After listening to Project Nemesis by Jeremy Robinson and narrated by Jeffrey Kafer I was excited to finally get the opportunity to listen to the follow-up, Project Maigo. If you haven’t listened to either, then you probably don’t know about Nemesis, she is an awesome 300ft kaiju. If Godzilla is the king, then Nemesis has to be the Queen of the Monsters. Jon Hudson is back in Project Maigo with his crackpot team and some new allies. Boston is in ruins and now 5 kaiju, yes, you read that right, 5 kaiju are running rampant around the world and it is up to Jon and his allies to put a stop to the mayhem.

I had high hopes for this book, enjoying the first as much as I did. I didn’t really see how it could be equalled but I feel it was surpassed. Jeremy Robinson is an entertaining author that always seems to bring the fun, excitement and destruction, along with a dose of realism, I know kaiju and realism probably don’t go together but that is the beauty of this book, you get the monsters destroying everything but you also have the human relationships, you cannot help but get drawn in and hope things work out for the characters.

Jeffrey Kafer is pretty outstanding in his performance of the kaiju, I must admit, I wasn’t sure he could pull it off, I don’t think ‘monsters’ when I think of Kafer, however, I was happily surprised. Kafer can definitely do Kaiju. I was so engrossed in the narration and story that I often forgot I was in a public place, I may have received an odd look or two, but it was worth it. I enjoyed it so much, I actually listened to it twice in the space of a week.

I would highly recommend this audiobook to anyone that enjoys kaiju thrillers, entertaining writing with pop culture references and impressive narrating skills.

The Queen Lives Forever

We return to breaking news a Kaiju battle has broken now we get to see how they fight in AMERICA. The novel had two intresting facts for readers it introduces chacthers from the prequel novel Island 731 but you don't need read it to injoy the novel but gives more info to things the chacthers say and secound a version of The Chessteam in that world make a brief appearance.
