Publisher's Summary

THE SIGNAL WAS RECEIVED

Jon Hudson has become more than just the director of the Department of Homeland Security's Fusion Center - Paranormal. He is now a husband and a father, surrounded by a team who have become a family. So when a series of strange new threats rise from the depths and fall from the sky, the stakes are higher than ever.

THE HARBINGERS ARRIVE

While Maigo, the young woman who was once a part of the kaiju known as Nemesis, goddess of vengeance, and Lilly, a chimera cat-woman, sneak off to investigate Big Diomede, an island with an ancient secret inside Russian territory, two monsters fall from the sky. One heads for Tokyo, the other for the already battered Boston. Tsunamis rise from the depths, leveling cities. The two new kaiju - Giger and Lovecraft - follow close behind, bringing death and destruction with them. And Hudson realizes the horrible truth: the Aeros, an alien race plotting mankind's destruction, have sent these kaiju in advance.

THE WAR BEGINS

Drawn by the chaos, and by her connection to people she and her new "voice", Katsu Endo, are fond of, Nemesis rises to the defense of humanity. But the Queen of the Monsters is not alone. Maigo and Lilly unleash an ancient protector known as Hyperion, and the first battle for the fate of the human race, in all dimensions, begins.

Delightfully Sublime Ear Candy

This book and the entire Nemesis saga are wonderful reminders of the pulps and drive-in creature features I enjoyed in my youth... These stories are the best and modern reincarnation of both... Kinda reminds me of a mix of X files and those creature flicks... Not really hard SF or gorey monster tale, but meets in the middle w/ supremely quirky humor and pop culture illusions... We have genetic engineering of both man and the aliens man is fighting... Godzilla reminiscent monsters like an exodus from Monster Island... Especially Hyperion who very much resembles the giant robot from one of those Godzilla movies... There also a bit of that Saturday morning cartoon appeal... Some obvious, and sneakily subtle references to StarTrek... Pricking of fingers like in The Thing Reboot...
Great read w/ great narration and if you're a closet guilty pleasure kinad person you'll gobble this up... There's quite a bit of crossover w/ the other Robinson storylines, but was surprised the Chess Team didn't make an appearance... Worth the credit and a trip back into our miss spent youth;)

A rich tapestry of monsters, heroes, and adventure

Any additional comments?

It's hard to describe what is so much fun about this book without giving things away, but I'll give it a shot. Not only is this a great kaiju book, the story ties together characters from numerous Jeremy Robinson titles in a way that is wholly organic. Were the interactions planned from the beginning? It would be difficult to believe, but if anyone could do it, Robinson could. This book is a non-stop thrill ride and a killer summer read from beginning to end.

Now it's on to book #5. I can't wait!

Nemesis is back

Project Hyperion is another action-packed, fast-paced action thriller that will leave you breathless and waiting for more. As always, the dialogue is funny and filled with pop-culture references that make you grin like a loon. It also brings together other previous stories from the Jeremy Robinson universe to deepen the mysteries! Another well-written winner by Mr Robinson, excellently told by Jeffrey Kafer

Great Series

After the 2016 USA Elections, I needed to retreat from reality for a bit. What better way to do that than read Jeremy Robinson's Kaiju thrillers from beginning to end. I began with Island 731, and worked my way directly through Project Hyperion, in one giant binge, lasting about a week. I couldn't get enough. Robinson shows humanity through every monster, every decision and every action. The characterizations were excellent, and the people grew through every book. There was humor everywhere (if you're talking about giant, city destroying monsters, how could you not have humor?), and Robinson pokes fun at himself for writing these all the way through. But each book got more and more riveting. From the beginning images of Hudson running drunk and naked through the woods, and congratulating himself for fending off a huge monster of a bear in Project Nemesis, to the final scene of leaving with Cowboy to fend off more giant world destroying monsters, these are fun all of the way. I highly recommend.

Hyperion

Once again, Jeffrey Kafer delivers as he narrates Jeremy Robinson's Project Nemesis series. The audiobooks bring a whole new dimension to the series. You are missing out if you haven't checked these audibles out yet.

Author & Storyteller are an amazing team!

I became addicted to the Nemesis series of books after listening to one out of sequence and have now gone through them all in proper order twice. Jeremy Robinson writes his characters in such a "real" manner they seem to come alive throughout the books and I found myself thinking I'd love to sit on a porch in Maine, drinking vodka laced tea with them all. Jeffrey Kafer is the perfect narrator for this series and was glad to find he narrated the majority of the books.

Whether you like science fiction or not you will enjoy this series based solely on the talent of Mr. Robinson and the narrative skill of Mr. Kafer.

It's good, but not the best in the series.

If you could sum up Project Hyperion in three words, what would they be?

Not enough fights.

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

It was okay, hopefully in the next book there will be more or at least longer monster battles.

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

He always makes me think of Charlie Sheen. He is a good reader.

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

Not enough giant monster battles.

Any additional comments?

I feel like the previous books had more giant monster battles, or at least the battles took longer in this book. Sure the humans are getting better weapons, but I came for giant monsters fighting, and it felt like much much more of this book involved the human characters fighting. It's a good book, but I don't think it's the best one in the series.
