Book Description

Nov. 1 2012
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 disguised as an abandoned Nike missile site in the back woods of Maine, 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. Includes original creature designs by legendary Godzilla artist, Matt Frank. *Kaiju is Japanese for "strange beast." The genre includes classic monsters such as Godzilla, Gamera, Mothra, Rodan and King Ghidorah.

I've always liked Godzilla movies, I clamored for Pacific Rim when that got announced, and then I heard about Project Nemesis.

I was curious on how someone could tackle a Kaiju type story as a book, so I decided to check it out.

I found the Hudson character tough to like as a person at first, but he did grow on me as the story went on, especially whenever he got down to business. The switching from first person to third person perspective was jarring for the first little bit. I also found a lot of the metaphors and similes to seem extra forced, especially when coming from Hudson's perspective. They were spaced out enough that it didn't overly annoy me, but I did roll my eyes at some sentences.

That being said, I thought the conflicts were fantastic. All of the monster attacks were as entertaining as they were cruel. The evolution of the monster was super intriguing. This book went from "pretty good" into "really great" in the last half. I'm definitely eager for more.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good kaiju story July 19 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Gojira is only four years older than I am so I pretty much grew up watching him and all his kaiju friends destroy Tokyo on screen over and over, but I had never read a kaiju novel. Someone recommended Project Nemesis to me and since it's so easy and cheap to buy kindle books I did. Well I don't regret it one bit! This book is very entertaining. The only negative I have is that I would of like a little more background story on some of the characters, like Endo and the general to better understand why they do what they do. If there is a sequel I will definitely buy it.

5.0 out of 5 stars GOOD STORY July 6 2013

Jeremy Robinson is an excellent author and his stories are always very entertaining. His cross reference to the main character in another of his novel ISLAND 731 was cleverly done.

5.0 out of 5 stars Proof once again that Robinson is best served alone Nov. 26 2012
By Watsondrums - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Project Nemesis is a SciFi / monster story reminiscent of the old Godzilla movies....only much better. The book has a solid, satisfying conclusion, while at the same time leaving the door open to sequels. And Robinson should consider writing those sequels because he has a winner here - both in the story line and with the loveable characters.
Nemesis also proves once again that Robinson is better without any co-authors. Any of his fans realize that all of the Chess Team novellas were co-written, along with Ragnarok, with other authors. Nemesis is Jeremy Robinson by himself and at the top of his game again. A very enjoyable read.

Fast moving, none stop action story that kept me reading. Reminded me of the Godzilla movies I watched as a kid. Solid writing and the kindle edition is enhanced with illustrations of the creature as it evolves. Excellent Saturday night creature feature novel.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great monster book! Jan. 4 2013
By kylred - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I was surprised by how much I enjoyed reading this book. I thought the plot would be a little thin because it sounded a little like a Godzilla type story. The plot was very interesting and there was hardly a dull moment. After reading this book I started the Last Hunter series and it has been very good so far.

4.0 out of 5 stars Made me feel like a kid again watching corny Godzilla movies! May 16 2013
By Coach D - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I had this book on my Amazon Wish List....Once it dropped to $0.99 I jumped right on it and started reading it immediately. This is a fun read. Tons of action, death and destruction, but still a fun easy read. I liked all the characters, to include the giant monster (Nemesis). The story is very similiar to countless Godzilla movies. But there is always a backstory to all the Godzilla movies and the same here. The monster is not just ramblining around. Looking forward to more "Kaiju" thrillers by Jeremy Robinson.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nemesis May 14 2013
By Debosophy - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I found Jeremy Robinson kind of later on in the piece, but this is good news as EVERY BOOK I've read, so far, has been amazing and for his serial type books, I have been able to read them one after the other!

Nemesis is the latest book I've read and it didn't disappoint. Characters are well thought out and have substance, the action is fast paced with nary a lull during reading. The writing is fluid and very hard to put down, which is really nice considering the fact that so many indie authors out there can't edit to save their lives.

I also LOVE the fact that Jeremy draws you in and treats you like you're really there (his short message before the third epilogue in Nemesis made me giggle as he interupted his own story) and I appreciate a writer who engages with the reading audience.

If you love characters like Godzilla, Mothra and the rest of the bunch, you will LOVE this book.
