The 2nd in this story line, the first being Project Nemesis. Our favorite Department of Homeland Security division, Fusion Center - Paranormal returns with Jon Hudson, our hero and his small fighting force. There are more kaiju in this story and they are destroying cities all over the globe. Nemesis makes several appearances in this novel and performs heroically to save Jon, while being attacked by kaiju and the military. Jon is battling an evil Colonel. The final battle takes place in Washington DC.
This story starts strong with great action and doesn’t slow down. It starts with slave traders in Hong Kong where Jon meets up with his personal nemesis, Endo. Endo introduces Jon to neuro transmitters. These come in handy late in the story when fighting the kaiju. The kaiju, except for Nemesis, are on a rampage. They are connected to the evil Colonel and he is directing them to destroy those he believes are his enemies. He intends to destroy the president, as well as Jon before then turning his force against all the practitioners of evil in the world, namely, humans. Whenever Jon becomes in danger, Nemesis arrives to save him. They are connected through Jon’s efforts in the previous book.
Jeremy Robinson has created a great story in Project Nemesis and Project Maigo. He has cleverly pulled in a character from his Chess Team Series, as well as from his Island 731 book. His imaginative and refreshing look at his subject matter continues to draw the interest of those who are looking for something just a little bit different. Project Maigo is a great book for those looking for further stories about kaiju, lots of action, great characters, and a great hero. The ending is very surprising and yet very pleasing. I truly enjoy reading Jeremy’s characters who have honor, integrity, compassion, and the ability to keep going in the midst of major crisis.
I would recommend this book to anyone with a SciFi interest as well as an interest in kaiju and the military. I love that Jon names various things after his college girlfriend. I love Jon’s sense of humor and his strength. You will too.

Jeremy Robinson is fast becoming my favorite author! He creates unique stories: full of action, suspense, humor and believable characters.
Some authors have heroes who are broody, robotic thinking, never make mistakes and boarder-line arrogant with their heroine as a “helpless damsel in distress” type, who falls in love and/or sleep with the hero the first time he flexes his muscle (barf!) Jeremy is not one of these authors!
His heroes are true human men, (ex: one hero from another book was still so grief stricken from what happened in the past he cried). And his heroines are also real: strong-willed, tough and can hold her own. Jeremy knows a woman can be just as hard-core as men when defending/protecting the ones in her life. (ex: Queen going off to find Rook who is missing in Russia. – another must-read series: The Chessmen).
He lets his men and women shine in their own special abilities to complement each other. (Example: Rook and Queen. He prefers guns. She prefers hand to hand). A reader can tell Jeremy respects both men and women.
Jon Huston and Ashley Collins are another of his “real life” characters of action that will appeal to men and women alike. (I still smile when I think of the “poison ivy” part) as they once more protect the world from Maigo and the Kaiju. (I also loved the way he weaved some of the “The Chessmen” into the story).
Another hit from Jeremy!

another grand-slam in the Kaiju series for Mr. Robinson!!!
DHS Agent & FC-P Director Jon Hudson is at his crazy antics again.
He basically puts himself in the middle of a 300 foot tall monster slug-fest (smart dude).
You will also get some really deep back story into Hudson's past and understand his connection to Maigo/Nemesis.

I just finished this book and it was so much fun. I liked the increased character development and the addition of more kaiju was awesome. This would make a great movie. For fans of Robinsons there was plenty of cross over to make you grin from ear to ear. Was very action packed, tons of destruction (which is one reason people love kaiju stories) and lots of humor. Would highly recommend reading this book.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Jeremy Robinson stomps the world. This book is awesome. If you didn't like it, you probably aren't a big daikaiju fan. I loved "Project Nemesis", was very sad when I finished it, because there was no more after that. This made me very happy. Pacific Rim filled a craving somewhat that I'd been experiencing since watching Godzilla: Final Wars. This book overfilled the craving left behind by Pacific Rim.
Here is my rundown:
Kaiju that you can sink your teeth into- developed as well as all the best Toho beasties, but more so, check.
Giant monsters fighting with no giant robots to get in the way, check.
Human-sized action/drama that isn't lame and boring, check.
A book that people who are like, "What's a Kaiju?" can enjoy, check.
(But read Project Nemesis first!)
A sense of humor about what genre the book is and still capturing what it is that makes kaiju nerds kaiju nerds(awesomeness), big fat check!
So why haven't you bought it yet?
