In the wake of a Kaiju assault that left the nation’s capital in ruins, Jon Hudson, director of the Department of Homeland Security’s Fusion Center – Paranormal, is preparing his team for an uncertain future. While hiding Lilly, a chimera cat-girl rescued from Island 731, from GOD—the Genetic Offense Directive, a black ops organization within DARPA—Hudson attempts to raise Maigo, the teenage girl who once was part of Nemesis, the now deceased goddess of vengeance. But the two strange girls can’t be protected from what comes next.
Kept in a massive warehouse operated by GOD, Nemesis’s body is violated by the Tsuchi, spider-like chimera also developed on Island 731. It spawns Kaiju-sized variations of the deadly creatures and wakes Nemesis from her regenerative slumber. Nemesis, fueled by an unquenchable thirst for vengeance, and now lacking Maigo’s conscience, storms after the Tsuchi, which have fled south, toward Los Angeles, and inland…toward GOD’s headquarters at Area 51.
SACRIFICES MUST BE MADE
To stop the infinitely hungry Tsuchi, and the rampaging Nemesis, Hudson and crew must make alliances with enemies, combining personal experience, future technology and bold actions. But for the world to once again be safe from a Kaiju menace, one of their own must give themselves up to the goddess of vengeance.
With Project Nemesis and Project Maigo, Jeremy Robinson created a new literary subgenre known as the ‘Kaiju Thriller,’ a term now being adopted by other authors. With movies such as Godzilla and Pacific Rim treating audiences to new Kaiju stories, Robinson has single-handedly launched the fiction world’s bestselling original Kaiju series (not based on a pre-existing film). In Project 731, we not only see the return of Hawkins, Lilly and Joliet from Island 731, we learn how the reborn Maigo has adapted, and—at last—discover the origins of Nemesis!
“Reading Jeremy Robinson is dangerous for your sleep pattern. He spins monster yarns so well that you cannot stop turning pages. Giant monsters, creepy islands and writing that is both smart and furious in intensity and pace.”
— Famous Monsters of Filmland
“Project Nemesis turned out to be the first book in years where I read it from cover to cover in just under a day. I kept my eyes peeled on those 250 or so pages as if it was crack! It was that good! Nemesis is a true American Kaiju by every definition. This is a definite must for any fan of the Kaiju genre. It gets a full fledged 5/5 rating.”
— Kaiju Planet
“A brisk thriller with neatly timed action sequences, snappy dialogue and the ultimate sympathetic figure in a badly burned little girl with a fighting spirit… The Nazis are determined to have the last gruesome laugh in this efficient doomsday thriller.”
— Kirkus Reviews
“Relentless pacing and numerous plot twists drive this compelling stand-alone [SecondWorld] from Robinson… Thriller fans and apocalyptic fiction aficionados alike will find this audaciously plotted novel enormously satisfying.”
— Publisher’s Weekly
“Robinson blends myth, science and terminal velocity action like no one else.”
— Scott Sigler, NY Times Bestselling author of NOCTURNAL
“Just when you think that 21st-century authors have come up with every possible way of destroying the world, along comes Jeremy Robinson.”
— New Hampshire Magazine
