The thrilling new Jack West adventure from the best-selling author of The Great Zoo of China and The Five Greatest Warriors.
A Ruthless Kidnapping
Jack West Jr and his family are living happily on their remote farm when Jack is brutally kidnapped and awakes in an underground cell to find a masked attacker with a knife charging at him.
The Great Games
Jack, it seems, has been chosen - along with a dozen other elite soldiers - to compete in a series of deadly challenges designed to fulfil an ancient ritual. With the fate of the Earth at stake, he will have to traverse diabolical mazes, fight cruel assassins and face unimaginable horrors that will test him like he has never been tested before.
To Hell and Back
In the process he will discover the mysterious and powerful group of individuals behind it all: the four legendary kingdoms.

"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." (Vince Flynn, New York Times best-selling author)
"Nobody writes action like Matthew Reilly." (Chicago Sun-Times)
Matthew Reilly has returned to the fast pace, intricate and well written story telling that I love. After the disappointing outing that was the "zoo of China " , it was a thrill to listen to this book . Love love this book , kept me on edge all the way through.
It may not win classical literature accolades but any Matthew Reilly books is one I can't put down. They're simple and ridiculous but that's why I love them. Their simplicity makes it all the easier to get emersed and lost in his books and this is no different.
yes! Matt has a beautiful way of mixing well known myth and fantasy into a thrilling action packed rollercoaster that you notice new things in everytime you read it.
the lord of the underworld. such a well known character and a great dipiction of an otherwise stereotyped historical figure
the narrator brings a previous history and continuation from the previous novels. with that in mind his voice work for characters, accents and such is bang on the money. he has a great voice for suspense and elequent delivery of the nature of the book and what the story deserves
when jack and hadies make their deal
keep writing matt. you're a brilliant writer. anyone with an interest in history, myth and fast paced action/ military ops should read this
This was yet another brilliant novel by Matthew Reilly. I absolutely loved how he skilfully tied both jack and scarecrow into the storyline with plenty of scope for future collaboration. A very satisfied experience...
What did I like about this trilogy ....everything. Three fantastic books following the escaped of Jack West and his fantastic team.Please ,please Matthew more ,more ,more
All the 3 books
He's the only person for the job.
I wish... Once upon a time I would have thought Jack Thompson, Bryan Brown Bruce Willis or Harrison Ford.Maybe Jamie Fox accept Jack is a white Aussie. So Hugh Hackman, Chris Hemsworth, Simon Baker, Richard Roxburgh to many good Aussie's to pick from
Waiting for new books Matthew been way to long mate
sets the scene for upcoming mayhem...so many bad guys in this one...and plenty of heroics...if your a fan it's a must read.
"The Countdown Continues."
Matthew Reilly is the master of the count down. Four Legendary Kingdoms continues this tradition. Some time as passed since the last book and the characters have all matured. This creates new interests and dynamics between characters. Jack West Jr continues the proven formula of action combined with history to uncover the mysteries of the ancient world. But,in a similar vein to Contest, this life an death battle pits Jack against some of Matthew Reilly's most impressive characters yet.
Brilliant, but read the previous books to enjoy this story even more.
"Another brilliant book by Reilly."
I have already listened to the book twice and like other Reilly books I will listen to the story again in the next 6 to 12 months..
Adding Scarecrow to the story.
Sean is a fantastic narrator and he should narrate all his books.
While you are still breathing never give up.
This book is a great sequel to the Jack West stories. Reilly shows again that he is a brilliant writer and well above the standard of other writers like Clancy
