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.
TO THE MOUNTAINS AND THE FALL!
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?
A NEW PLAYER ARRIVES
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
PRAISE FOR THE TWO LOST MOUNTAINS
'The Jack West Jnr books are pure escapism. An action hero worthy of Lee Child leads a team to save the world against elaborate threats that owe as much to the camp machinations of Bond supervillains as the myth-tinged conspiracy fiction of Dan Brown. Reilly churns out big, glossy page-turners with imagination and skill.'
Sydney Morning Herald
'Thrilling ride it's excitement and entertainment that is his stock in trade, and it's here in spades.' Herald Sun.
"Buckle in and enjoy the ride. Another spectacularly fun romp from the reigning master of high-concept adventure!" --Booklist starred review of The Four Legendary Kingdoms
"Nobody writes action like Matthew Reilly." --Vince Flynn on Seven Deadly Wonders
"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 on The Six Sacred Stones
"Think of it as watching an Indiana Jones film on a moving roller coaster!" --Library Journal on The Five Greatest Warriors

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!
