Publisher's Summary

Euphemia Williams, known to her few friends as Effie, and everyone else as Eff-Bomb, will punch you for looking at her funny, for using her full name or for noticing that she's a genius. But when an elite global entity known as Unity takes note of her intelligence and offers her a chance to escape the hum-drum life of a foster-child, she signs up. At best, she expects her time abroad to be a vacation. At worst, an actual challenge. But what she finds, upon being swept up in a futuristic transport, is far, far worse.

En route to a secret location in the Pacific, a meteor punches through the atmosphere triggering an electromagnetic pulse that sends the transport plummeting to the ocean. While fighting to escape the crash and climb onto an island beach, the meteor slams into the sea. A tsunami races across the island, pursuing Effie and her fellow survivors deeper into the volcanic island's lush jungle.

Beaten, terrified, and abandoned, the small group discovers that they are not alone on the island. The locals are ruthless and well-trained. With the survivors looking to her for leadership, Effie struggles - and fails - to keep everyone alive as they fight for survival.

Along the way, Effie uncovers a series of shocking truths: the parents she never knew were part of the island's strange history, which includes massive robots known as Shugoten, and the meteor that sent them careening into the ocean, wasn't a meteor at all.

The daikaiju have arrived - and one of them is headed her way.

Jeremy Robinson, creator of the 'Kaiju Thriller' genre, and international best-selling author of the Project Nemesis novel and comic book series, launches this new series combining the behind-enemy-lines themes of Red Dawn with the high-tech monster-fighting robots of Robotech, infusing it with his frenetic pacing and character-driven plots.

Great for YA readers, plus readers of all ages

Any additional comments?

Though well suited for a young adult audience, the book makes for a thrilling experience for readers of all ages. Action, intrigue, a mystery that kept me guessing right through the last chapter... it really had it all. Then add gigantic rampaging monsters, robo-mech weapon suites, and tons of futuristic tech? What's not to love? My only regret was not finding another book in the series immediately available. I can't wait to read what happens next.

not a good story

the story is very slow and it's hard to keep hooked to it. I tried to finish it, even though each chapter is about 12 minutes, it's very hard to keep a vivid story.

Masterfully written! Excellent performance!

I absolutely love this book. Here's another example of this writers brilliance. I was blown away how he use science and teens and to paint an amazing picture of how we may someday join people in battle to make great warriors. Having a base, support and a point. Are all things that can be applied to all areas of our lives.
I listen to the whole book in 3 days. It enraptured me and I couldn't turn it off. I can't wait for the next installment Jeremy!

Kinda disappointed

The story was a real chore to listen to until it got to be tolerable at the end. Gave me the feeling of trying to blend Lord of the Flies with Hunger Games or Divergent with barely a dash of Pacific Rim and it just fell flat.
