"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 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." -- Kirkus Reviews
" Relentless pacing and numerous plot twists drive this compelling stand-alone from Robinson... Thriller fans and apocalyptic fiction aficionados alike will find this audaciously plotted novel enormously satisfying." --Publisher's Weekly

Robinson is also known as the #1 Amazon.com horror writer, Jeremy Bishop, author of THE SENTINEL and the controversial novel, TORMENT. His novels have been translated into ten languages.

Like Micheal Crichton's Jurassic Park and J.R. Tolkien's The Hobbit; this has go this has has been added to my favorites when it comes to novels. Thanks to monsters like King Kong and Godzilla, Kaiju have captured my imagination in my childhood and this book has definitely quenched my thirst for giant monsters. This has also been my first Jeremy Robinson story and I have to say, being a aspiring book author, I find his imagination and talent for writing really entertaining creature features very inspiring.
The story was well written, very original and packed with humor as well as horror; the monster was awesome and gigantically creative; and I fell in love with the characters as I got to know them. Speaking of which, the main protagonist, Jon Hudson, was very comical and reminded me a lot of Chris Pratt. As a matter of fact 'Lord willing' if anyone decides to make a movie of this novel I think he would be the best choice to play as Hudson.
But any who, I really like this book and can't wait to read the sequels.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book and did not want to put it down. I was only upset to see that my library did not carry it. I plan to read all in his kaiju series. Many others are so short I cant imagine reading them but this is a full book or novel and Im glad. It was not wordy or filled with wasted drama. I highly recommend it to anyone interested in the genre and or sci-fi.
Another good monster book from Jeremy Robinson. I really loved The Apocalypse Machine, so I thought I'd try this one next. While not quite as rich with post-apoc imagery and destruction as Apoc Machine, Project Nemesis still had an interesting premise and a great protagonist, and a sense of humor that kept the narrative from bogging down. The character I found most interesting was Endo, the mysterious bodyguard, who added ambiguity and depth to some otherwise fun but somewhat two-dimensional characters. I would give it 4 1/2 stars and am happy to round it up to five based on creativity and a fast-paced plot.
I bought this on my new Kindle as a result of being on a recent kaiju kick following the announcement of Legendary's Godzilla reboot. Let me tell you: it did not disappoint.
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!
If you like the Godzilla or Gamera series and want something with a little bit more oomph - this is the book you want. It's got a great feel of being more gritty than any Godzilla movie! I can't even fathom the words to describe this book.
I loved all the action. it is non stop with some surprising results. If you like godzilla type of movies you are going to love this book. the book is about a big monster that just cant walk thru town without taking out a few bad guys, a few buildings and sadly a few good guys too.
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.
There haven't been many great kaiju gracing the US shores. We debate over whether or not King Kong counts as a kaiju, most people try to forget about Zilla, and most people DID forget about that lumpy spider baby from Cloverfield, but Jeremy Robinson has set out to change that by bringing us the Queen of Monsters, Nemesis.
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.
