So, one of my friends informed me recently that I've been on a Kaiju bender lately.

This is true.

Kaiju: Deadfall is the 3rd Kaiju book I've read. The first was Pacific Rising by J. Dennehy, the second was Kaiju Winter by Jake Bible. Both of those books, though dealing with people getting squisheded by gigantic monsters, were very different reads. And that trend continued here into Kaiju: Deadfall.

I really liked the unique take of Kaiju: Deadfall. Not necessarily the creatures from outer space por
Kaiju..hmm I expected giant monsters coming from the sea like..

Pacific Rim but now that I think about it.. the “Monsters” are GIANT, they do knock down buildings and even eat people! Now there aren’t any Jaegers or Mechas to fight these bad boys.. but so far one battle has been fought.

A good and fast paced book.

I especially liked the different viewpoints / story lines. Gave a broad perspective - and a disaster on a greater scale. I wish though that some of the minor points of views also had been continuous throughout the story.

What I liked about the author's heroes is that I found them human (and with flaws) with and not that super heroic (without being cliche broody).

The Kaijus were well described and didn't get boring even though these monsters were more about mass destruct

Gripping story line

Overall the story has a quick opening and a steady, interesting flow. I thought about giving it four stars because the level of suspension of reality goes from straining when terms used don't go along with activity described at all in a variety of situations, to overly descriptive to the point of jargon in others. But I didn't stop very often until I finished, so that's 5 star by my standards.
