Adventurous and action packed. I enjoyed all the connections made to historical figures and sites even if they were far fetched. By the end the action scenes had gotten rather repetitive. Actually they were repetitive even before this book started. The numerous little cliffhangers always invariably and predictably turned out ok, saved in the nick of time and the bad guys were a little too good at showing up at exactly the right place and time. I could go on but i wont because in the end this was great as a fluff book. Enjoyable and engrossing even if it wasnt anything near a masterpiece. ( )

The Five Greatest Warriors is a fun and exciting read. The writing is simpl, but maintains a good pace. Th estory is a little silly, but that doesn't spoil the ride. Worth a read. ( )

If you've read any of Matthew Reilly's other books you know what to expect: non-stop action/adventure written with a very visual style. This book, the third in the Jack West Jr series after "The Seven Ancient Wonders" and "The Six Sacred Stones", is no exception. It starts where "The Six Sacred Stones" ended, a cliff-hanger with Jack West Jr falling seemingly to his death in a bottomless pit. How he survives, then goes on with his struggle to use the six sacred stones to prevent the destruction of the Earth, is the ride of a lifetime. All this, while fighting to prevent his father and others using the stones to subjugate humanity, and a group of fanatics whose aim is to ensure the Earth is destroyed.
Highly recommended read for lovers of action/adventure. ( )
