Publisher's Summary

THE SIGNAL WAS RECEIVED
Jon Hudson has become more than just the director of the Department of Homeland Security's Fusion Center - Paranormal. He is now a husband and a father, surrounded by a team who have become a family. So when a series of strange new threats rise from the depths and fall from the sky, the stakes are higher than ever.
THE HARBINGERS ARRIVE
While Maigo, the young woman who was once a part of the kaiju known as Nemesis, goddess of vengeance, and Lilly, a chimera cat-woman, sneak off to investigate Big Diomede, an island with an ancient secret inside Russian territory, two monsters fall from the sky. One heads for Tokyo, the other for the already battered Boston. Tsunamis rise from the depths, leveling cities. The two new kaiju - Giger and Lovecraft - follow close behind, bringing death and destruction with them. And Hudson realizes the horrible truth: the Aeros, an alien race plotting mankind's destruction, have sent these kaiju in advance.
THE WAR BEGINS
Drawn by the chaos, and by her connection to people she and her new "voice", Katsu Endo, are fond of, Nemesis rises to the defense of humanity. But the Queen of the Monsters is not alone. Maigo and Lilly unleash an ancient protector known as Hyperion, and the first battle for the fate of the human race, in all dimensions, begins.

Delightfully Sublime Ear Candy

This book and the entire Nemesis saga are wonderful reminders of the pulps and drive-in creature features I enjoyed in my youth... These stories are the best and modern reincarnation of both... Kinda reminds me of a mix of X files and those creature flicks... Not really hard SF or gorey monster tale, but meets in the middle w/ supremely quirky humor and pop culture illusions... We have genetic engineering of both man and the aliens man is fighting... Godzilla reminiscent monsters like an exodus from Monster Island... Especially Hyperion who very much resembles the giant robot from one of those Godzilla movies... There also a bit of that Saturday morning cartoon appeal... Some obvious, and sneakily subtle references to StarTrek... Pricking of fingers like in The Thing Reboot...
Great read w/ great narration and if you're a closet guilty pleasure kinad person you'll gobble this up... There's quite a bit of crossover w/ the other Robinson storylines, but was surprised the Chess Team didn't make an appearance... Worth the credit and a trip back into our miss spent youth;)

Great Series

After the 2016 USA Elections, I needed to retreat from reality for a bit. What better way to do that than read Jeremy Robinson's Kaiju thrillers from beginning to end. I began with Island 731, and worked my way directly through Project Hyperion, in one giant binge, lasting about a week. I couldn't get enough. Robinson shows humanity through every monster, every decision and every action. The characterizations were excellent, and the people grew through every book. There was humor everywhere (if you're talking about giant, city destroying monsters, how could you not have humor?), and Robinson pokes fun at himself for writing these all the way through. But each book got more and more riveting. From the beginning images of Hudson running drunk and naked through the woods, and congratulating himself for fending off a huge monster of a bear in Project Nemesis, to the final scene of leaving with Cowboy to fend off more giant world destroying monsters, these are fun all of the way. I highly recommend.
