As usual, I couldn't put it down. I was introduced to Jack West Jr. (Seven Ancient Wonders) through a good friend who thought I'd like the travel elements of the book. Now I am hooked on all things Matthew Reilly. He is a wonderfully talented writer. I particularly love this series of books - the characters, the relationships, the mystery, the fast pace, the level of research is all outstanding. Even though I am not usually a person who likes violence, there is something about the way Matthew writes it that feels 'right'. Yes, there is a degree of suspending belief … but I love how no-one is safe from death … even key characters. It makes me more invested. I can't wait for the next book in this series. p.s. I love how Scarecrow and The Black Knight have made appearances in these books. Brilliant!
