Publisher's Summary

Deep in the jungles of Peru, the hunt for a legendary Incan idol is underway - an idol that in the present day could be used as the basis for a terrifying new weapon. Guiding a US Army is Professor William Race, a young linguist who must translate an ancient manuscript which contains the location of the idol. What they find is an ominous stone temple, sealed tight. They open it - and soon discover that some doors are meant to remain unopened.

Fantastic book - definitely worth a read

Absolutely loved this book. Couldn't imagine all the twists and turns if I tried. Matthew Reilly has done it again. Great narration by Sean Mangan as well.

By far the best

I have been lucky enough to have read all of Matthews books thus far, but still find Temple the most enjoyable.
The story grabs you tight within the first few pages and takes you on one hell of a ride.
I have read this book a couple of times but listening to Sean Mangan narrate this story (who is brilliant) brings a whole new element to the book.

High action, and a bit brutal in parts

Read this on paper many years ago and enjoyed it more as I recall. I enjoy all of MRs books, but this one could have been bette, and a little less 'fantastic'. Set in South America for the most part, it puts a Languages Professor in some impossible situations, all of which he manages to get out of, where his special armed forces protectors seem to be dropping like nine pins.

Still, it's an action packed ride guaranteed to take you out of your own reality and transport you into adventures you'd never survive in the real world.....monkey-pee notwithstanding.

Buy it!
