‘This is all coming together . . .’ he breathed. ‘Here. Now. In this place.’
4.5 stars 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.
