Well, it’s not like I have much new to say. 🙂 It’s Matthew Reilly through and through. We start where we left off in The Six Sacred Stones. Of course that Jack West managed to get himself out of the cliffhanger situation from the end of the last novel. Was there ever any doubt? 😉
I’m lucky though that I read the previous book just a while ago because there was a 2-year pause between them.
Like I said the last time, Mr. Reilly’s books are the ones that make me stop reading anything else that I might be reading at the time. Besides, you go through them really fast since the pace of the book is fast and you just have to go through it fast because you can’t stop.
It was a bit of a shock for me reading through the part where it is described what some of the evil guys in this book do to their enemies (btw, not all the enemies are bad guys which makes it even worse). I sincerely hope that is not possible and never happens to anyone for real.
If you read the previous 2 books, you can probably guess the relation between the title and the story.
There’s not much I can say without getting too much into the story, all the characters are back along with some new, some of them get seriously hurt or killed and of course it ends with our group of heroes saving the world.
What I found fascinating was some interesting insights into the Catholic church and its doctrine or the origins of the faith) – I will give it more time and look for some other books on the subject.
