About the Author
Born in Sydney in 1974, Matthew Reilly was not always a big fan of reading. It was only after he read To Kill A Mockingbird and Lord of the Flies in Year 10 that he realised reading could transport you to another world. Following this revelation, Matthew soon began creating stories of his own and set about writing his first novel, Contest, at the age of 19 while still at university studying law.
Following rejections from all the major publishers, Matthew self-published Contest in 1996, printing 1000 copies. He produced a big-budget-looking novel which he sold into bookshops throughout Sydney, one shop at a time.
In January 1997, a Commissioning Editor for Pan Macmillan Australia walked into Angus & Robertson's Pitt Street Mall store and bought a copy of Contest. The editor tracked Matthew down through his contact details in the front of the book. Interestingly, those original self-published editions of Contest have now become much sought after collectors' items. One recently sold on eBay for $1200!
Matthew Reilly is now the internationally bestselling author of the Scarecrow novels: Ice Station, Area 7, Scarecrow, Scarecrow and the Army of Thieves and the novella Hell Island; the Jack West novels: The Seven Ancient Wonders, The Six Sacred Stones, The Five Greatest Warriors, The Four Legendary Kingdoms, The Three Secret Cities, and The Two Lost Mountains; and the standalone novels Contest, Temple, Hover Car Racer, The Tournament, Troll Mountain, The Great Zoo of China and The Secret Runners of New York.
His books are published in over 20 languages with worldwide sales of over 7 million copies.
Since The Seven Ancient Wonders in 2005, Matthew's novels have been the biggest selling new fiction title released in Australia for that year.
Matthew has also written several short stories, including Roger Ascham and the King's Lost Girl, a special free prequel to The Tournament which is available online. Other short stories include Time Tours, The Mine and the hyper-adrenalised romp, Altitude Rush.
He owns and drives a DeLorean DMC-12, the car made famous in the Back to the Future movies. He also has a life-sized Han Solo in carbonite hanging on the wall of his office! When not writing or penning a film script, Matthew can be found on the golf course.
Matthew Reilly is currently living in Los Angeles. He is the director of his first movie, Interceptor, a Netflix film co-written with Stuart Beattie.

The story bounces from one maze to the next and... That's it. Basically one long conclusion that ties up all the loose ends it's a satisfying enough ending if not somewhat predictable.
The deaths in the book are earnt given the length of the series, however Reilly almost revels in the torture porn at odds with the general humour and light action in the rest of the story.
As someone who really did not like the last book after returning to the series after a long break, TOIL is less aggregious with toned down commentary on the church and modern politics and pop culture references.
On the one hand Reilly explains everything on the other any science behind the final revelation is cursary at best and the story would have benefited from even more time at the end explaining how Earth ( and the moon ) came to be, who the civilisation actually was that actually seeded everything and some of the science behind the magic.
Reilly knows what he likes and writes for people who like it. He can describe his own images as long as you don't overthink the science behind it all.
The author smartly avoids bashing Jesus/Christianity and the Church in this one without his own opinions coming through for a change.
A great series, but I'm glad it's over.
A heartstopping finale to an epic series.
The One Impossible Labyrinth is the 7th and final novel in the series featuring our hero, Jack West Junior. The book immediately opens where the previous book left off diving straight into the action. I'd recommend starting from book 1 if you're new to the series.
The Jack West Jnr series is an exhilarating packed adventure series and this latest entry is n exception. Knowing this was the last one, I wanted to savor it but once I started I couldn't put it down devouring page after page as the story raced towards the grand finale.
For Jack and the team the stakes are the highest so far as the fate of the world hangs on their completion of this last Impossible challenge. Each obstacle they have to overcome is more complex, obscure and challenging than the last. Just when you think things couldn't possibly get any more hopeless, thr author pulls.put another gut wrenching twist.
The settings are detailed, intricate and well developed. The pictures help to visualize the locations and puzzles.
The series and this book feels like Tomb Raider and Indiana Jones crossed with a Tom Cruise action movie. While the book focuses heavy on plot and action, the characters are well developed, realistic and each lovable in their own way so its hard to pick a favorite. The alternate and different take on many real historical and mythological events and locations are well done and thought provoking.
Overall, I'd highly recommend this book and series. It's sad to say goodbye to a beloved series after 16 years and 7 books but overall the ending was satisfying and wrapped everything up well.
Thank you to the author, publisher and Netgalley for a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
Jack and his friends face some ridiculous trials, unimaginable tests and some not very nice opponents.....will they save the DAY?
I'm not telling but I was exhausted when I closed the book.
I feel like I have just said goodbye to my best friend that I'll never see again.
This was such a great ending to a brilliant series.

Mr Reilly you have done us proud, I can’t wait for your next series of whatever that may be.
So to anyone reading this I hope you enjoy or enjoyed the books as much as me, I really can’t recommend them enough. Thank you
Jack and his family fight the good fight from page one book one.
I'm sad it's over but will look out for future Mathew Reilly books because the action never stops
