The Five Greatest Warriors Doesn't Miss A Beat

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.

Action packed

Holy crap what an action packed book. Great follow on from six sacred stones. Jack has got to be the luckiest bloke alive, blessed by the gods perhaps.

The action set against a background of history, mysticism, astrology and mythology was captivating. The blend of characters worked really well with a place for everyone to contribute equally including nerds and people with a disability

another thrilling adventure

Matthew reilly's five warriors is a thrilling book that you'll absolutely want to listen to if you're coming off six sacred stones, continuing on from the cliffhanger in that book, we are back with jack west for the culmination of the dark sun plotline, with enough twists and turns to leave you feeling anxious to see how it all ends.

the reader was excellent in most places, with only a few chuckles in regards to bullet sounds and other environmental effects, but he is very easy to listen to and understand!

I highly recommend you get this book if you enjoyed the previous titles, but this journey is one you should start at the beginning for.

awesome story telling.

Fantastic characters, plenty of villains to hate and hero's to love. Great twists and turns in the plot from start to finish. M.R. is an artist and Historical Fiction is just one of his great mediums.

Who is the fifth?

This is an excellent finish to brilliant series of fast paced action adventure. Well narrated by Sean Mangan and brilliantly written and researched by Matthew Reilly. Who is the fifth great warrior? Listen and read the final book in the series that began with Seven Ancient Wonders to find out. Who will gain the ultimate power over life and death? Can Jack, Lily and their team save the world again?

Kept me on the treadmill longer than planned

Where does Five Greatest Warriors rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I've only listened to Matthew Reilly books and I'm sad to say I've done them all and am at a loss for what to do at the gym next. Love audio books, really enjoyed the narrator... great way to make gym time disappear way too quicly

Indiana Jones - Military Style

I'm not one for military books, I find them too gung-ho, but I absolutely loved this book and the series. Some of Jack's efforts are far fetched, but Matthew Reilly's ability to draw you in, with so much detail and plausible scenarios. I found it very much like an Indiana Jones movie except with an ex_Special Forces lead character who wants to save the world, along with his entertaining sidekicks. I couldn't get enough of the story, and had trouble turning it off, once you get used to Sean Mangan's voice. Overall, I definitely recommend this
