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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth every penny. Oct. 22 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Excellently crafted story, and I loved the pacing; it flowed quickly but hardly felt rushed. There were a few plot holes in the story, but they were minor and didn't detract too much from the story in one bit. Reading this has made me want to track down everything else Robinson has written, and certainly check out the next book.

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.

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

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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Mixed Feelings About This One Jan. 24 2013
By Ian J. Hayes - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
<Spoiler Alert - Plot elements may be discussed> I am really still grappling with my thoughts on this book, which tells me I wasn't head-over-heels thrilled with it. Firstly, having grown up in the generation that was raised with the likes of Godzilla, King Kong, and all the 1950's movies with giant fauna of all sorts, I am a sucker for a good monster story. Secondly, as a big fan of Mr Robinson's previous works, especially the Chess Team novels which also deal with monstrous creations, I was eagerly anticipating this "Kaiju" thriller. I think because Mr Robinson's previous works were so good that I am a bit disappointed in Nemesis. Don't misunderstand - it is still a good read, but not on the same level as his Chess Team novels. The story has an interesting angle in how the giant creature comes to pass, and leaves open the door for sequels. There is a great deal of action, and the pace never bogs down with pseudo-science explanations. All the usual suspects are here as well: an affable and goofy hero trying to be the hero; a tough-as-nails babe cop who mysteriously is attracted to the bumbling hero; the geeky office trolls; and of course, the government bureaucrats who know best how to do things rather than the guys in the field. The thing which has me conflicted was the alternating first-person and third-person perspectives. My personal preference has always been for third person omnipotent, because when reading, we all tend to identify with a character or the hero. If the first-person character is a fool, then it is a less pleasurable ride. The hero in Nemesis can't make up his mind if he is an immature slacker or a no-holds barred hero. Some of his musings are supposed to be humorous, I'm sure, but tend to be just a peep show into an immature, and often crude, mind. The third person sections were far superior, and more in line with Mr Robinson's other excellent writings. In spite of all this, it was still a good read, just not his best work. I would look forward to more of the "Kaiju" story line if the first person perspective were dropped, and the hero grew up some.
