Book Description

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 Sheriff, 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, Sheriff 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.

The sequel to Project Nemesis, PROJECT MAIGO, is available now!

PRAISE FOR JEREMY ROBINSON

"Robinson blends myth, science and terminal velocity action like no one else."
-- Scott Sigler, NY Times Bestselling author of INFECTED and ANSCESTOR

"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

"There's nothing timid about Robinson as he drops his readers off the cliff without a parachute and somehow manages to catch us an inch or two from doom."
--Jeff Long, NY Times bestselling author of THE DESCENT

"Jeremy Robinson is a fresh new face in adventure writing and will make a mark in suspense for years to come."
--David Lynn Golemon, NY Times bestselling author of LEGEND and EVENT

"Jeremy Robinson is an original and exciting voice."
--Steve Berry, NY Times bestselling author of THE EMPEROR'S TOMB

"With THRESHOLD, Jeremy Robinson goes pedal to the metal into very dark territory. Fast-paced, action packed and wonderfully creepy! Highly recommended!"
--Jonathan Maberry, NY Times bestselling author of ROT & RUIN

" [SecondWorld] is gripping, propelled by expertly controlled pacing and lively characters. Robinson's punchy prose style will appeal to fans of Matthew Reilly's fast-paced, bigger-than-life thrillers, but this is in no way a knockoff. It's a fresh and satisfying thriller that should bring its author plenty of new fans."
-- Booklist

"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."

5.0 out of 5 stars Proof once again that Robinson is best served alone November 26, 2012
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! January 4, 2013
By kylred

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.

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 January 24, 2013
Format:Paperback|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. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars Nemesis May 14, 2013
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nemesis Rocks April 29, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I love Kaiju films, for those of you not in the know that's giant monster movies ala Godzilla. So I was intrigued by this title. Just finished this and I loved it. It's a great take on the Kaiju genre including a lot of classic themes from those films. While not a radioactive beast like Godzilla, Nemesis is a well thought out Kaiju and has an awesome design. One benefit of the Kindle edition was the inclusion of great artwork of Nemesis. It really helps me as a visual reader having those images to work with. Great cast of characters too, I really hope Mr. Robinson does a sequel!

Only feedback I have is that the book shifts between first person and third person. Why not just write the whole book in third person? It's not that much of a distraction I just don't see what couldn't have been done in third person that was in first. But really that's my only complaint.

Great action, love the characters, and best of all a well rounded monster.
