Project Maigo (A Kaiju Thriller)

Jeremy Robinson’s sequel to last year’s Project Nemesis is a worthy successor. It takes the characters introduced in the first novel and turns up the volume. Instead of just one kaiju, we have five battling it out in the Washington D.C. Mall. Robinson manages to channel his inner eight year old to create fight scenes with 100 meter tall monsters that are right out of the classic Godzilla movie “Destroy All Monsters”. Just like Toho used famous landmarks like the Diet Building and Osaka Castle, Robinson lays waste to the US Capital building.

The story closes out Maigo’s story to create a complete loop. I’m not sure if a third novel is planned. There are ties to other Robinson novels. I put “Island 731” on my list.
