Practically from the start of the story to the very end, Project Nemesis is full of thrilling action and engaging characters. The two protagonists compliment each other well, and the villains (the general's bodyguard is probably my favorite character) provide a threatening and interesting obstacle for the protagonists to overcome; the kind of bad guys that you love to hate but can't stop reading about.
And then there's the main attraction, the monster itself. I found it--her, rather--to be very original and well-described, even without the illustrations (though they are a nice treat). She was a terrifying and powerful threat throughout the story, and I felt that she would fit very well in a Godzilla film. Might even give the big guy a run for his money. (Any fanfiction writers decide to make that happen, let me know.)
Overall, it was a fun and easy read, yet also well-written and descriptive. I had no trouble imagining scenes playing out before me as if I were watching a blockbuster film; in fact, there were several instances while reading that I WANTED it to be a movie. Badly.
If there is one complaint I have to point out, it's a really small one, and does nothing to detract from the story itself. There are quite a few Jenny's in this book; two Jenny's and a Jenn, to be exact. The two Jenny's are minor characters, with only one scene apiece, and Jenn is only mentioned. Again, a very minor complaint, and one that only someone as nitpicky as me would be willing to point out. Still, it's an odd misstep in an otherwise fantastic novel that would have easily been avoided by simply looking at a list of female names and randomly choosing a couple, and I think that's what irked me the most.
But I digress... I came to Amazon searching for something to satisfy my appetite for giant monster fiction, and Project Nemesis did just that. I would recommend it to any Godzilla fan or even a reader just looking for a good thriller. If you're like me, and you just can't wait for Godzilla to hit theaters this May, give Nemesis a read. She might just surprise you!
Jeremy Robinson just keeps getting better and better. I didnt think i would love any of his books as much I love his Chess team but i was wrong. This book is awesome.
I sure hope he continues writing about Godzilla type stories.
This is the first book in what became an incredible series, and it's everything that you want in a kaiju story. Well written human characters that do a good job of propelling the story, a powerful monster that was created through human error that goes on a wonderfully fun to read rampage, and of course that one thing that has the audience rooting for the monster even when its killing so many people. This is an amazing book, and Nemesis has become a fantastic kaiju that I hope will be around for a long time.
There are several books that followed this one (Island 731, Project Maigo, and the latest being Project 731) but this is where it all began, this is the birthplace of Nemesis, and believe me, this is one first step you're going to be glad you took.
Jon Hunter works for Homeland Security's "X-Files-type" division: Fusion Center P ('P' standing for paranormal). His job is not quite what he expected as it's mainly hunting down Bigfoot sightings and other similar urban legends. During one investigation, he and the local sheriff (the wonderful Ashley Collins) come across a secret lab, and the escaped creature they created. Taking control of the security teams, he works with Sheriff Collins in trying to find a way to stop this creature as it destroys an alarming number of people, buildings, and even towns and a city.
Hunter is a fun and engaging character, as is Collins. The rest of the cast of characters are equally well-written. The plot pulls you along with its smooth writing and epic scale. The story is mesmerizing, and at times horrifying. By the conclusion, Nemesis becomes firmly entrenched as America's own giant terror.
