Publisher's Summary

The thrilling new novel featuring Jack West Jr., from the New York Times and number-one international best-selling author!

A ruthless kidnapping.

Jack West Jr. and his family are living happily on their remote farm when Jack is brutally kidnapped, and he awakens 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 fulfill 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.

He might also discover that he is not the only hero in this place....

Narrator Problems

I'm not a fan of the narrator, personally I feel that he doesn't enhance the story at all.

He is very slow and in my opinion seems to make the dialogue clunky and robotic

Pretty awful book.

Obviously not impressed with this steaming pile. Was hoping the main character would die so my suffering would end.

I love every minute

This story is thrilling and inspiring. It includes great heros, amazing villains, a very well woven tale and a healthy mixture of humanity.

10 stars if I could!

The story telling. Character detail and not a moment when reading this will your mind wonder elsewhere! The Jack West novels are action-packed and don’t disappoint!

One of my favorite series

I greatly enjoy all of Matthew Reilly’s books. I’ve read them all and now I’m working my way through what audio is available. The only thing keeping me from giving this five stars across the board is the narrator. His voice doesn’t go with the story at all - the sound of it and the speed. While I can increase the speed of the audio (this is the only narrator I’ve done that with) there is nothing that can be done about the sound of his voice. I’m not saying his voice is “bad.” It just doesn’t work with a Jack West book.

Loved it! Perfect for any action adventure fan.

It’s like reading an action movie!
I am a huge fan of both the Jack West Jnr and Scarecrow novels. I have read and listened to them all. They are always different and unpredictable. I think the Narrator Sean Mangan is fantastic and really easy to listen to.

Great Story read by Poor Performer

If you are a fan of Jack West Jr. then you will love this book.

Not as good as previous books but very good!

If you are a fan of Matthew Reilly and have read his other books (highly Recommend all of the others and you should read before this one) then you will not be disappointed.

The Reader is very poor and has only one voice although he tries to do several. Found myself getting frustrated with his constant miss reads and pronunciation. But if you can get past the Reader you will find yourself swept away in another heart pounding, thrilling Jack West Jr. adventure!
