    ClassicA giant monster Where?The cover and prologue had me hooked Readers know this is going to be bad a Easy Reading and good flow From San Francisco to The Big Apple what fun The story is well set up for a seuel should Koehler decide to expand the ride This is pure entertainment for any age

    The mere mention of Kaiju in the title was enough to grab my attention I was not disappointed The characters were interesting and engaging I like the direction the action took and how the story developed Would love to see follow up on the Kaiju and the world they live in A definite recommend

    Disclaimer purchased this e book at comSurprisingly good book about a young man having to deal with moving to a new place a new school and giant monsters that want to kill him Kevin Takahashi just moved to New York City from San Fransisco but not by choice A gigantic monster a kaiju named Karakadon devastated the city killing many of his friends and forcing people to relocate Now he is going to a new school and meets a beautiful gothic Lolita named Aimi and he's about to find out life is going to get even complicated than back homeKevin makes for a great main character He's honest cynical but still romantic He's surrounded by other memorable characters like the Snowman his rival for Aimi's affections and the geeks that latch on to him during his first day The world of Kaiju Hunter is well done too KH doesn't shy away from a realistic depiction of what it would really be like if there were giant monsters that occasionally rampaged in the world down to end of the world parties and KTV all Kaiju all the time The writing is uick and snappy and the plot has some nice twists There's a couple of downsides though One is there are a few formatting errors to the text that were missed during editing The other is the whole use of Japanese talk and mythology feels a little off to me More sort of an american otaku take than a Japanese one Not that it's bad at all but for the Kaiju the names he gives a few don't mesh with their concept in my opinionBut these are minor uibbles It's a fun book especially for giant monster movie fans with great characters and a nice plot I recommend picking it up and like the other reviewers I hope to see a seuel from him soon

    For those who came in late the word “kaiju” has come to refer to the giant monsters that trample their way through Japanese monster movies Lately internet self publishing has revealed a fledgling horror sub genre the kaiju novel I enjoyed my first kaiju novel which was written by Jeremy Robinson so I started looking for similar books and found “Raiju” “Raiju” turned out to be a YA novel whose protagonist is a teenaged boy who finds out that he is a kaiju hunter magically armed with a sword of light and marginal control over the immense title kaiju Throughout the book author KH Koehler skillfully maintains a first person voice that captures his teen’s age bravado insecurity and emotional highs and lowsWhat is the novel offers an original take on its monsters Instead of being irradiated lizards the kaiju in “Raiju” are kami the godsspirits of Shinto the indigenous religion of Japan Thanks to their magical nature the kaiju in this novel can appear and disappear without leaving endless trails of destruction that would make them easy to locate Raiju’s enemy a huge black formless menace is all the dangerous for itAdd all this to some good depiction of kaiju action and destruction and you have a book that’s worth checking out

    I bought this book An off beat book Raiju is part teen urban fantasy part classic monster movie Kevin is a teen reeling from the utter destruction of San Francisco by a mutated shark His best friend and mother both died in the attack and he and his father both emerged different people Now Kevin is trying to start over at a new school in New York but being half Japanese and a hothead makes fitting in hard And of course there's a girl Aimi a gothic lolita singer with a temperamental sidekick and a dark secret Beneath the city another monster grows and it seems to be coming after Kevin Kevin has his own secret He's a Keeper the guardian of an ancient kami god one that could help him defeat the mutated monster lurking in New York's sewers or tear the city apart in its rage While much of this book appears to be straight out of a Godzilla flick Koehler puts a wonderful new spin to it infusing the mutants and science gone wrong explanations with an enticing Japanese mythos An exciting book it's a shame it's not longer or that there's no seuel out yet Definitely a book for people looking for flavor to their paranormal fiction

    Kevin Takahashi is a refugee from the destruction of San Francisco the result of an attack by a kaiju or giant monster Now living in New York Kevin is trying to adjust to a new city a new school and new problems His main problem seems to be that he’s caught the attention of Aimi Mura a minor musical celebrity with jealous friends and an insanely protective father But these problems are minor compared to the arrival of yet another kaiju in New YorkRaiju delivers exactly what it promises lots of big monster action along with messages about the condition of the environment Which is something of a running theme in giant monster movies The cast of characters are uirky and uniue and the back story is delivered in a novel way that doesn’t feel like info dumps Fans of giant monsters shouldn’t need much but there’s also teen angst and a cute romantic angle as wellI give Raiju 4 stars It’s a fun fast paced monster book that doubles as a coming of age story I’d recommend it to fans of monster movies or fans of YA fiction


  8. La La says:

    Nicely written and although the climax is action packed it didn't feel rushed The characters were enjoyable and the story came to a satisfying yet open ended conclusion
