About the Author
[T]his fast-paced, international adventure will keep you turning pages...just sit back and enjoy the ride. -- Elizabeth Willse, The Star-Ledger
In this sequel to Seven Deadly Wonders, Reilly increases the tension and the threat to produce another winner. The interwoven combination of action and mythology in the narrative makes for the perfect winter beach read. -- Library Journal
Matthew Reilly novels should come with health warnings on the cover. [T]he non-stop life-threatening action from enemies using guns, missiles, poisons, machetes and martial arts against Reilly's heroes is not for the faint-hearted. It's a wild ride. -- Ray Chesterton, The Daily Telegraph (Australia)
The age-, sex- and race-balanced team from Reilly's 2006 thrill-a-second novel 7 Deadly Wonders returns, still under the management of handily bionic and super resourceful Australian Commando Jack West...[A] video game in print. -- Kirkus Reviews
The wildly imaginative Reilly has taken inspiration from comics, video games, thrillers and Code-style puzzle novels to create this rocket-fueled sequel to his 7 Deadly Wonders...A tongue-in-cheek quality (one that extends to the low-tech looking maps and illustrations) will help readers find this outlandish adventure thrilling. -- Publishers Weekly
Whisking you through wave after wave of nonstop action on a cloud of exuberant improbabilities, Reilly really makes you feel like a kid again; it's a blast. -- Booklist --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

Top reviews from Australia
There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
I a great fan of Tolkien, JK Rowland's, CS Lewis etc but I particularly like the way that Matthew's exhaustive research brings a degree of credibility into this trilogy ( or more?) And if, like me, you like Egyptian & Greek mythology & history, you'll love the books.
While other novels manages to conclude their portions of the overarching story, this one does not.
It reads more like the first two chapters of a six-chapter book.
It also brings the novel series into a serial format, bringing in elements from the first novel and teasing future plot lines.

Looking forward to the sequel of how Jack gets out of the abyss & who rescues Abby...
