What We're Reading - "6 Sacred Stones" by Matthew Reilly.

When last we encountered Jack West Jr. and his team they were in search for the seven wonders in the world in Matthew Reilly's 7 Deadly Wonders. Having saved the world once, his is back on the move and if you are ready for another action packed adventure chock full of ancient artifacts, riddles, evil, nasty bad guys [are there any other kind?], double crosses, amazing escapes [3 within the first 100 pages], treasure to find...oh, BTW, the fate and very existence of the earth is at stake too, then the newly published sequel, The 6 Sacred Stones will provide you the reading fix that you need. As a bonus, both books are full of maps and drawings that show the artifacts, their puzzles and various challenges that are to be faced by West and this one comes with a lengthy bibliography off books read and used by the author in his writing! Very tempting reading too.




But be forewarned, there will be at least one more book in this series and let me say, when this one ends, you'll scream "aaaaaauuuuuuggggghhhhh" because, like me, you'll have to wait to see what comes next...and that will be way too long of a wait!

Vist the author at http://www.matthewreilly.com/home.htm to encourage him to get the next one published ASAP!!

For other books of this type look for the "X Marks the Spot" book mark or the similarly named list found on the iBistro catalog "X Marks the Spot - the Quest for Treasure"

How can Jack West Survive the fall has anyone any ideas?

My guess it the special aerial wings that he wore during the Chinese prisonbreak/train raid will play a part in the return of Jack West...either that or he was just taking a shower and everything was a dream!
