non-stop action excellent end to the Jack west series, but if you want more gun battles I would recommend the Scarecrow books

It is the direct sequel/continuation of 6 Sacred Stones, but that itself is the sequel/continuation of 7 Ancient Wonders albeit with some years passing between events (which do get partially filled in) - so really, its the 3rd and final(?) part of the trilogy.

Anyway, 6 Sacred Stones left me hanging, or should that be falling, so I am stoked that the wait is over.

I have only jumped back in, so cannot review from a complete book angle, but, so far, so good, and I'm braced for the ride to continue!

If you have no idea who Jack West is, recommend you start at Seven Ancient Wonders, then Six Sacred Stones, then this one.

Um, Sky Monster rocks! Someone turn this trilogy into film - Pete Jackson, when you have a spare moment dude.....

And Matthew Reily - I have read all his books (except the kids one he done) - pick ANY of them and you are in for a blast. Some of his books are linked by characters and events, so recommend starting from the oldest ones first to get the most from them - though unlike 7 Ancient/6 Sacred/5 Greatest, not essential.

For all those that have waited for 2 years to see what happened after the amazing cliff hanger at the end of 6 Sacred stones then let me tell you that you will not be dissapointed. Matthew Reilly keeps up the same fast pace and amazing action from the previous 2 books and throws in a few twist and turns for good measure. The action is like reading a hollywood blockbuster with deadly traps and truly nasty villains which do not let up until the last page. Anyone who cannot remember what happened previously then there is a handy synopsis covering the previous 2 books events.
I have been a massive Matthew Reilly fan since first reading Contest and once again I have not been let down by his latest novel, let's hope that the next one is quicker than 2 years away!
