The Kaiju Preservation Society by John Scalzi begins in New York City, where Jamie Gray is an overworked and unappreciated ‘deliverator’ for a fast-food company.
On one of his ‘deliverateries’ Jamie meets up with a former acquaintance by the name of Tom, who currently has a job with what he refers to as an ‘animal rights organization’! Apparently, Tom’s team is short of a labourer ‘to lift the heavy things’ on their next field visit, and he knows Jamie is more than capable. Jamie, eager to leave his current employment, immediately signs up for the job.
Tom, however, hasn’t quite explained what the job entails or that the wildlife Jamie and the team will be caring for don’t reside on Earth. The ginormous dinosaur-like creatures, named Kaiju, roam a prehistoric alternate dimension with other strange parasitic creatures.
Their world that was warm and free from humans until recently has now been infiltrated by those who don’t have their best intentions at heart. The universe’s largest and, possibly, most dangerous animals are in trouble. The Kaiju Preservation Society now needs to protect them from those whose greed and carelessness could cause the death of Earth as we know it!
This is a suspenseful and fast-paced novel that follows an interesting and diverse team of Wildlife Warriors as they risk their lives to save the Kaiju and the human race back on Earth.
An edge of the seat page-turner that will both thrill and amuse the reader with the camaraderie of the “Good Guys” and their perilous journey through the maze of science fiction and science fact!
Would make a great movie!
An exciting must read for 2022
The Kaiju Preservation Society is available in paperback, hardback and e-book.
