Overview

**This special edition e-book has the stunning artwork of Cheung Chung Tat on the cover, celebrating all things Kaiju this month.**

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 in the backwoods of Maine, disguised as an abandoned Nike missile site, 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.

*Kaiju is Japanese for "strange beast." The genre includes classic monsters such as Godzilla, Gamera, Mothra, Rodan and King Ghidorah.


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."
-- 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

The NEMESIS PROJECT is most certainly another winner for author Jeremy Robinson. Robinson has landed in my top three favorite authors list. Nemesis is horror and science fiction wrapped up with interesting characters and a thrilling plot. I could not put it down, and that caused some very late nights considering the novel is almost 900 pages long! I wanted to keep reading but had to put it down when I noticed it was 4 am. Keep up the great work, Mr. Robinson!

Faced paced read. Very enjoyable. Highly recommend it. Would like to see this as a series.

Jeremy Robinson tells us he loved giant monster movies as a child and that love certainly shows through in "Project Nemesis"!  This is a real thrill ride of a book.  The action is intense and, unlike your typical Godzilla movie, there's plenty of graphically presented gruesome death.  Jeremy Robinson gives us an interesting framework to hang his kaiju story on.  The monster Nemesis is motivated by more than just hunger and wanton destruction.  This more complex motivation both surprised me and raised some valid questions.  And not only that, this was just a kick-ass cool monster!  We got a suitable origin for Nemesis that is still mysterious and crying out for a sequel.  And the characters, there's a great hero, his more than capable budding love interest, a truely evil villian and plenty of attention getting supporting characters.  And while these characters are not the most complex in the world, they're far from shallow.  The only small nitpick I have with the book is the main character, Jon Hudson. I thought he was a little too nice and laid back for the head of DHS branch office.But what the heck, just made me pull for him even more.  This was a book I couldn't stop reading, it was just one cool scene after another.  I highly recommend it and eagerly look forward to many sequels, after all, the only thing better than a giant monster movie is a giant monster movie marathon!

Robinson turned in a real page turn with this story. I couldn't catch my breath while reading. Once you thought you were out of the story, he "pulled you back in". A fun comic book ride.

Really exciting, well written book with likable characters

This is my first of his books to read. I found it to be good old fashion high camp fun. I found myself laughing out loud,don't know if I was supposed to or not ,but he has such a humorous way of writing. The book had non-stop action,an unusual plot which shows we both watched the old sci fi Japanese monster movies,and I loved the ending which leaves lots of room for additional tales. Guess that could also be "tails".

Just finished this great book! WOW! Fast paced, likable characters, and someone to blame! If you are like me and prefer monsters in your stories, then this book is for you! As always, Jeremy Robinson is at his best! Very hard to put down! If his next one, Island 731 is just as good, then I am in for yet ANOTHER fantastic ride! Thanks, sir, for your wonderful storytelling! Keep up the good work! I've read everything you have published. AWL

Great characters, amazing ever transforming monster, well thought out plot. Can easily see this as a movie. Drew me in from the first chapter. Nice to see a new twist to an old genre, especially one that is so well done. Jp

Generally, the modern monster story focuses on the creature being just as covert and hidden as a government wishes. Not so in this case. Thanks for dreaming big.

I put off reading this book because I didn't think 'Kaiju' would be something I would be interested in, however, I couldn't put it down. I should know better than to doubt a book written by Jeremy Robinson, he has a wonderful ability to incorporate great monsters and great characters that you want to read about more. I hope we see more from Nemesis and Jon Hudson.
