At last the conclusion of Matthew Reilly's Jack West Jr. series has come and all bets are off. When last we saw the bold Australian adventure, he was plummeting down into an endless darkness towards a terrible death and the rest of his team made up in 'Minos', are in disarray. Any disappointment loyal readers felt at this stunted end to the Six Sacred Stones, has been appeased in this final installments.

Against the tightest of deadlines, the 'Minos' stumbles on against their evil rivals (including Jack's father) to prevent them in gaining control of the 'Machine' and the gifts it bestows.
Jack must lead his team over continents, into the clutches of ancient traps and at the rise of planets and moons, they will come face to face with the 5th warrior.

The gory and intensity of the first two installments are continued in The Five Greatest Warriors, no doubt much to the delight of fans. While Reilly adheres to many of the adventuring trilogy staples, he definitely throws some surprises at his readers. One of the things I like most about this series, is that the main character is Australian; brave and clever, without falling into the usual stereotypes. I am very much hoping that the next Jack West Jr. tales will be near in the future. In perfect Reilly style, this trilogy is concluded leaving your glued to your seat until the last page without missing a beat.
