Publisher's Summary

Jon Hudson, head of the Department of Homeland Security's Fusion Center - Paranormal Division, is haunted by Boston's destruction at the hands of Nemesis, a 300-foot-tall monster with the heart of a murdered little girl, Maigo. In the time since Boston fell and Nemesis retreated to the ocean's depths, Hudson has helped prepare the United States against future attacks. But no one is prepared for what rises from the depths.

Five Kaiju attack cities and consume the world's citizens in an unstoppable rampage around the globe. But it soon becomes apparent that these attacks aren't all random events. Hudson is targeted, putting the FC-P headquarters, known as the Crow's Nest, and his team, in the very large crosshairs. General Lance Gordon, a man who carries Nemesis' vengeful heart in his chest, directs the Kaiju, and when Hudson finds protection from an unlikely source, the General turns his attention to his next target.

While Gordon and his Kaiju storm toward Washington, D.C., Hudson, along with his team and some new and unusual allies, race to stand in their path, hoping to spare the nation - and the world - from destruction. But salvation at the end of all things will come only through the gravest of sacrifices.

With Project Nemesis, Jeremy Robinson introduced the world of popular fiction to Kaiju, a word that has become popularized by the movie Pacific Rim, and is associated with classic movie monsters such as Godzilla and Gamera. In the year since the release of Project Nemesis, the audiobook has become the best-selling original Kaiju novel of all time, and it is being featured in the video game Colossal Kaiju Combat: Fall of Nemesis. In Project Maigo, Robinson amps up the scale, the characters and the city-stomping action, treating listeners to a truly monstrous experience typically reserved for the big screen.

Must read sequel

Any additional comments?

This was a really fun, action-packed story. At times the story has you laughing, crying and cheering. I hope we get more in this series. Jeffrey Kafer is superb as usual.

LOVE IT. FANTASTIC STORYLINE. WONDERFUL PERFORMANCES,

Very enjoyable. Loved every bit of it. Action packed and performed by Jeffrey Kafer beautifully. He brought the story to live with all the different voices and the tension and emotions were so well played out. I am going to book three now and I hope there will be more books on this series and that Jeffrey Kafer will be the narrator. Much thanks to Jeremy Robinson for writing such fantastic books.

AWESOME book!

Would you listen to Project Maigo again? Why?

I feel Jeremy Robinson is a literary genius who is not afraid to approach a VERY underserved genre in literature...Kaiju.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Project Maigo?

Probably the attack on Sydney/

Have you listened to any of Jeffrey Kafer’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

He was great as usual.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I was impressed by the entire book.

You cannot help but get drawn in

After listening to Project Nemesis by Jeremy Robinson and narrated by Jeffrey Kafer I was excited to finally get the opportunity to listen to the follow-up, Project Maigo. If you haven’t listened to either, then you probably don’t know about Nemesis, she is an awesome 300ft kaiju. If Godzilla is the king, then Nemesis has to be the Queen of the Monsters. Jon Hudson is back in Project Maigo with his crackpot team and some new allies. Boston is in ruins and now 5 kaiju, yes, you read that right, 5 kaiju are running rampant around the world and it is up to Jon and his allies to put a stop to the mayhem.

I had high hopes for this book, enjoying the first as much as I did. I didn’t really see how it could be equalled but I feel it was surpassed. Jeremy Robinson is an entertaining author that always seems to bring the fun, excitement and destruction, along with a dose of realism, I know kaiju and realism probably don’t go together but that is the beauty of this book, you get the monsters destroying everything but you also have the human relationships, you cannot help but get drawn in and hope things work out for the characters.

Jeffrey Kafer is pretty outstanding in his performance of the kaiju, I must admit, I wasn’t sure he could pull it off, I don’t think ‘monsters’ when I think of Kafer, however, I was happily surprised. Kafer can definitely do Kaiju. I was so engrossed in the narration and story that I often forgot I was in a public place, I may have received an odd look or two, but it was worth it. I enjoyed it so much, I actually listened to it twice in the space of a week.

I would highly recommend this audiobook to anyone that enjoys kaiju thrillers, entertaining writing with pop culture references and impressive narrating skills.

Can’t stop reading Jeremy Robinson

When I was a child- a long, long time ago, I would watch UHF channel 17 in Atlanta on a small black and white tV and watch monster movies On lucky Friday nights and Saturdays. I cried when the original Godzilla and the Dr died - for both of them. Robinson has takin the strange beast of lore to a whole new level. I can’t just review this book because to me it’s the big story that comes together in a way that brings much joy to this readers mind. But this book is especially wonderful for what is revealed. Read anything this man writes and travel through his worlds of depth, horror, perseverance and redemption. Outstanding!

Kaiju times 5

One Kaiju in the last book was amazing but now Maigo/Nemesis might be on the side of good although she is still way too large to be safe for the public. But now there are 5 more Kaiju not to mention the thing that woke them and is in control. Hudson and Collins have their hands full again and the action is not stopping soon.
Highly recommend this Kaiju thriller although it would be best to have read Project Nemesis before this book as it is definitely a continuation of that story.

Never thought I could love a Kaiju

Wow, just wow. This series is so good. Great characters that you really care about. The best reader and a kicka** story. This is the best way to spend a weekend. If you have not read the first 2 books start there, because this is a continuing adventure. You will love the ride. The author took a concept from my childhood and made it ring in the modern day. Bravo, there are still 3 more books to go. I wish it would go on even longer. Enjoy!
