The penultimate instalment of the sensational, thrilling Jack West series. A secret mythological sect seeks to rule the world. History, legend and global conspiracy abound and Jack and his motley crew are the only people who can stop it
Find the mountains and perform the fall! Jack West Jr is in the race of his life and he is a long, long way behind.
An incredible victory but at a terrible price ... Against all the odds, Jack West Jr found the Three Secret Cities but at a heartbreaking cost. His beloved daughter Lily, it appeared, was slaughtered by Sphinx in a cruel ancient ritual.
With his rivals far ahead of him, Jack must now get to one of the five iron mountains - two of which have never been found - and perform a mysterious feat known only as 'The Fall'. Although what is this object on the moon that is connected to it?
Amid all this, Jack will discover that a new player has entered the race, a general so feared by the four legendary kingdoms they had him locked away in their deepest dungeon. Only now this general has escaped and he has a horrifying plan of his own...
'Offers constant, nail-biting action.'
'Reilly is the hottest action writer around.'

I don't know what else to say, except that I simply may have outgrown this author. Having picked him up in my early teens, I have read and continue to read all his books.
However assetions that the '3 wise men' were just a myth and that Jesus was 'just a man' are ill informed and ignorant of real historical fact. The books are pure whimsy but borderline offensive by propogating an incorrect message to young readers.
I applaude the fact this series is still going but I lament that's it's getting harder and harder to read the next one, not just as I get older but that the writing, well it's either getting worse or my standards are getting higher.
It's sad that I've almost 'grown out' of these stories but 7 books was maybe asking too much for an anthology series with no self contained stories.
The latest book spends half the time recapping itself, reminding the reader of previous things and self indulging in Reilly's trademark, " let me saying something to you, then also tell you why it's so cool and why you should like it" style.
Talking AT the audiance is not cool. Cursory referances to everything under the son, doesn't actually show any research or intellect only that the author skimmed the bare essentials on what popular referances were required and then we add the "what most people don't know wink nudge it's a secret" belittles the reader and is patronising.
I really try but the universe is now so bloated half the cast is either killed off or put to sleep and side lined in this one just to focus the plot somewhat 🤔 Some of the statements in this book are either sheer flights of fancy or ignorance and whimsy. It's real hard to know what Reilly actually believes and thinks is true, unless he doesn't know, which is really frustrating.
How Mathew Reilly can even conceive half of what he does is just beyond belief. I always look forward to the next book with anticipation and sadness, because surely he must have a less than exceptional book somewhere after all the massive hits he has had !!!!!!!!!!
Absolutely well worth the read, and I hope there are Matthew Reilly publications yearly for the next 50 years !!!!
I heartily recommend this book for anyone who loves adventure.
In Matthew's words, I found it to be immensely satisfying. Can't wait for the next and last in the series.
Do I recommend this book...I certainally do!!!

You'll know why I wrote that when you've read it anyway.
As usual a great story, frantic action, great baddies.
Keep it up Matthew
If you like adventure books with many cliffhangers, this series of books is for you.
The whole series, so far, would make absolutely corking films!
Really looking forward to being able to read the last book, and I enjoy the books that much I fully expect to read the first six again to make sure not a single detail is lost in book seven!
