Overview

WASHINGTON D.C. HAS BEEN DESTROYED

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.

NEMESIS LIVES

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!

Project 731, the third kaiju book by Jeremy Robinson, is an awesome sequel to Project Nemesis and Project Maigo, as well as Robinson's Island 731. Nemesis vs 731. It's got all the bells and whistles of a good action/sci-fi story, and a good monster vs monster story all rolled into one. Nemesis should very well be America's original Kaiju, even though she already is in my book!

I am a little biased, I have to tell you all this because I can do nothing more than *gush*. Many other reviews will recap bits of the book but what I'll do for you is tell you that if you're not reading this series and you're actually a FAN of movies like Godzilla and Pacific Rim and Jurassic Park and the like, then really....you NEED to read this series. This book is written by a fan of these monsters TO the fans of these creatures. You can tell by the passionate action displayed through the series. The humor, the intrigue, the horrors, and the adventure all rolled up together and BROUGHT together in this book like a collection of X-Men coming together to defeat the newest episodes 'big Bad'.  Project 731 was a book that I was waiting for (luckily not for too long since Robinson is such a prolific and fast writer that I read Island 731 last year and both Project books earlier this year) ever since I finished Project Maigo. In my head I would think of where the story would go from where it left off. I'm not kidding. I do fantasy walks with the novels that I love and try to imagine where the story goes next and who will show up and "wouldn't it be cool if...?" all the time. Project 731 delivered for me. So much so that I swear I could have had another good 20-50,000 words in this baby just mixing it up all over the world in a great big pot of 'Kaiju stew' and I wouldn't have batted an eye lash. I just didn't want it to end.  If you've come to this site for this book, if you've gotten this far, and if you're a fan of Jeremy's books already I really don't think you'll need much convincing here, from me. All I can tell you is that I love the book and it's a perfect edition to the series in progress (and we get more in 2016!) and I just can't wait to see what comes next. I know this man works hard to give his fans what they want by producing books almost like they're on a butter churn and he's just at the helm, cranking the stick - so I don't want to be the one to say "I'm done, give me the NEXT book....like tomorrow" and yet....what fan doesn't want to see a series that they adore stretch onward? I think he knows this, which is why he's so prolific and does his best to give his fans what they want to see (but in his own defining way).  As always, I'll continue to follow his writing endeavors and be a fan for life as far as I can see it. High praise coming from a reader who has read hundreds of books over her lifetime. I'm not saying you're getting some great "classic" novel here. It's not Dickens - but it's not supposed to be. This is action, pure and simple. It's high performance adrenaline in a novel form and by this stage in the series, you already know whether this kind of genre "a Kaiju Thriller" is for YOU or not. But dang, this was just what the Doctor ordered and yep, I'm going to say it. I cannot wait for more. Bring it on, Sir.

Any time you can get an entry into a series that is both action-filled, and advances the overall story, I call it a win.

Robinson's Kaiju series is fantastic and this latest installment is a great addition. I don't normally like boooks from this genre, but these are so well written that even I am eagerly awaiting the next book. The concept and the characters are so uniquely American. I also liked how the storyline had a definate end but alsoo set up the next book at the same time so readers weren't left hanging. I hope he writes the next one soon; I would pre-order right now if I could. Stephanie Clanahan

Another winner for Jeremy, This book took off from the start and did not let you slow down. I could not put this book down! Kaiju and more Kaiju with the FP-C coming in to save the world again, with a new added touch of the Black Guard are they good are they bad?? This a great book to pick up and it will not let you down...

Nemesis > Godzilla The Queen of Monsters is back with a vengeance!!! If you loved the first books of this Kaiju series then your going to love this one as well... maybe more! Jeremy gives you the same great thing you have come to expect, but adds a little something extra. AMAZING READ.

As an avid reader of thriller novels, I’ve really taken to Robinson’s work. In my opinion, he continues set the bar higher with each novel he writes. Reflecting back to some of his previous works, Island 731, Project Nemesis and Project Maigo were really fast reads for me, I couldn’t put them down. I was delighted to see that Project 731 tied these all together. The story is narrated with sarcastic humor and you get a nice first person perspective as the storyline advances throughout the book. There are developments that give some answers to things you think about as the novel progresses, but as a big Robinson fan, there are certain revelations towards the end of the book that were jaw dropping to me. Without giving any spoilers, he masterfully tied in a previous work that was long ago dubbed as a “stand alone novel”. I am now anxiously awaiting the next installment of this series, and I know that when it comes, I will not be disappointed. Well done, Mr. Robinson.

If you have never read a Jeremy Robinson book, please do not start with this one. Read or listen (the audiobooks are fantastic) to Island 731 and Project's Nemesis & Maigo, it really will help when reading Project 731 (the title says it all). There are quite a few easter eggs in this book from Jeremy's other books, which I think people will love. I had a few a-ha moments myself.  As always, the action is fast paced and you can't help but keep turning the pages. Cities will be destroyed, relationships will be tested and you may even question who 'the bad guy' actually is. We see familiar characters back and the interactions are brilliant. I always forget how funny Jon Hudson is, until I read in a public place. The strange looks to my laugh out loud moments are worth it though. Jeremy Robinson has this amazing ability to totally immerse you in a story and to keep you thinking about it long after you've finished reading. The art gallery is a perfect addition to the book.

Project 731 is another great story by Jeremy Robinson in the Kaiju genre. It is nearly impossible to write a review without giving away spoilers for anyone that may not have read the entire series. If you have not read the rest of the series, I suggest you begin with Island 731! Trust me, this series is definitely worth the read, and Project 731 will knock your socks off!
