I put off reading this book because I didn't think 'Kaiju' would be something I would be interested in - movies yes, books not so much. However, I couldn't put it down. I should know better than to doubt a book written by Jeremy Robinson, he has a wonderful ability to incorporate great monsters and great characters that you want to read about more. Nemesis is the queen of the monsters and I hope we see more from her and Jon Hudson.

If you like Godzilla then you should definitely pick this book up.

So, We have Jeremy Robinson, the American Matthew riley giving us a Kaiju thriller of all things? Theres such thing as a Kaiju thriller? Seems so. And what a weird story it is...
We have a couple of guys running around the woods getting shot at, and a strange series of events eventually leads to a massive monster rampaging around Boston, and eating Just about everything She can find. In order to make up for his slight weakness in visually descriptive prose, He has has an artist create some rather spiffy sketches of his monster, and all in all, the story works. It's exactly what I expect from a Jeremy Robinson Book, a fast pace (but not stupid hollywood action movie fast), a rather intelligent plot and quite a cinematic writing style... And I got everything that I asked for. However, I will criticise it on several points. His weakness in visual description means that the climax feels short and rushed, and his science seems to be less good than some of his other books. The book also doesn't really have a conclusion, which does weaken the plot to an extent as well... But it's still a worthwhile read

“The end is near. I hear a noise at the door, as of some immense slippery body lumbering against it. It shall not find me. God, that hand! The window! The window!” ― H.P. Lovecraft, Dagon

Dr. Ichiro Serizawa: The arrogance of men is thinking nature is in our control and not the other way around. Let them fight.
Godzilla, 2014

Dr. Niko Tatopoulus: This thing is much too big to be some lost dinosaur.
Godzilla, 1998

“Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn. In his house at R'lyeh dead Cthulhu waits dreaming.” Lovecraft would have loved this. Nemesis is Godzilla, Cthulhu, and “Attack of the 50-Foot Woman” all rolled into one - Destroyer God and sad victim not only of fate but of a rich, obsessive, vicious man. “Nemesis” is a monster, true. A monster created by science, at the behest of a human even more monstrous than Nemesis herself.

Of course, back when King Kong and Godzilla came to life, “The Bomb” was our greatest fear. Immense power, horrific death from the skies – the perfect structure for tales of horror. Now, Nemesis waltzes onto the stage, filled with fear, pain, and a deep need for answers. Even monsters need answers, and Nemesis more than most. For all she is a monster, possibly a God, she is lost, searching. But her search can kill millions. Of course, the military is shooting off all its toys, twelve AMRAAM and four Tomahawks have only succeeded in killing civilians so far – and Boston is her next stop. Which is worse? A terrified military blasting away, or a giant beast storming across the land? “Hulk SMASH!”
I got a huge kick out of this story. Narrated by Jeffrey Kafer, the story is a high octane tribute to all the 50’s monster movies we know and love.

I loved this book. It is told quite believably and with real warmth. The characters are believable and I really rooted for them.
The author is a real fan of monster films and this is an affectionate tribute to them. The book is enormous fun and I could not put it down. I was pleased because I tried to read one of his Antarctic hunter books and hated it.
It you like fast paced page turning fun then this is for you!

I'm being pretty systematically disappointed by the kindle books I've bought written by self-published authors.

Project: Nemesis is not as badly written as some others. The prose is clean, and on the surface the action moves at a pretty fast rate. After the initial set up, though, it's a fairly unremitting dull and cycle of chase-shoot-capture-escape-chase-shoot.

There's a debt to Stephen King, with his crafty approach to collateral damage among minor characters. When the story's run in a rut for a while and needs a fresh kick, there'll be a scene change and a couple of new walk-on characters. Don't get attached. In a King novel, in half a dozen pages they'd be fed to a garbage disposal. Here it's to a Kaiju.

Project Nemesis is told in an obviously deliberate but awkward style. It kicks off in classic third person past tense, but when the main action starts switches to first person present. Then whenever we need an info-dump or a couple of sacrificial supporting characters, it skews back to third person. It's an uneven gear change between the chapters that look back on a done deal, and the main story in the right here and now, and a bit of a cheat. Not the deal-breaker, though.

Where Project Nemesis really trips up is in what seems to be the main pitfall of self-pub fiction.

I read a lot of comics, so I'm prepared to forgive shallow, samey characters if something else sweetens the deal. Bright drawings of impossible people in spandex punching each other always works for me.

Project Nemesis has nothing to distract from the sketchy characters. The hero is a shorts-wearing, beer-swilling skater-boy doofus, who is also a Homeland Security one man army.
