Once every 4,500 years, the superhot Tartarus sunspot aligned itself with Earth and caused immense worldwide flooding and sun-scorching. When the Capstone sat atop the Great Pyramid, no such damage occurred. In 2006, the Tartarus Rotation will come again . . . but the Capstone is nowhere to be found.Available onl in Basic 7.

It wasn‘t completely terrible. I never knew how much I loved character development until I read this book. It was like Indiana Jones meets The A Team and I was here for it, but ultimately the story was so flat. Ain‘t no one gonna break the neck of a nile crocodile with their bare hands. I don‘t care if you‘re one forearm is mechanical. I wanted action-adventure, but what I really wanted was a well written action-adventure. Bummer. ⭐️⭐️

I spent nap time yesterday finishing book 1 in the Jack West Jr series instead of doing housework or catching up with sleep myself. I‘m re-reading them all ahead of the penultimate book which comes out next week.

These books have completely implausible plot lines & action sequences and Mr Reilly is a little over keen on the use of italics and exclamation marks but they are perfect escapism & such good fun. Perfect for lockdown times.

Book 4/2021

I‘ve just picked these up from the library. Time to catch up before reading the penultimate book in the series this month!

I first discovered Matthew Reilly 20 years ago when Ice Station was published a friend gave me his copy to take on holiday. I was hooked!

I haven‘t read any for years but I feel like this is the perfect time to escape into one of his adventure stories.

Day 13 #Top20Series #20Series20Days

Today the superb Jack West Junior Series by Matthew Reilly. Great action, great characters, historical backdrops, and Treasure Hunts. These books are so fast paced and totally love them. Check them out!

He has also written some good standalones and the Scarecrow series which base on the first one is also a first rate series.

BookDragonNotWorm I loved the Scarecrow series! Mother was my favorite! 2y
MsMelissa I was expecting to see this series on your list. I‘ve only read book one, which was great, but have the next three ready to go. 2y
Andrew65 @Book_Fiend_Melissa The good news is I think book 1 is the weakest. 2y

Cringe-inducing dialogue, curse-inducing pacing, and characters about as deep as my sink. I wouldn't call myself a fan of the action archaeology genre, but I couldn't recommend this one to anybody. #TAGbookclub

Day 21 - #AmazingAdventure #JazzyJune

This is an action-packed fun adventure series which I thoroughly enjoy. The books have everything; intrigue and conspiracy, heroes and bad guys, clever plot twists, well researched locations, great humor and non-stop action.

I love Matthew Reilly abs his books. They are totally unrealistic all action all the time. They are trilling and entertaining.

My favourite Australian author would have to be Matthew Reilly, talk about fast paced action thrillers with non-stop high octane action, great characters and historical backdrops. Love his Jack West Junior Series and can‘t wait for The Three Secret Cities to be published in October.

How are you enjoying this one Melissa?,

Melissa_J It‘s good. It‘s non-stop action so I just want to keep reading. I have a few issues with the writing (Reilly is the king of the exclamation point!), but am willing to forgive these issues because I‘m engaged with the story. (edited) 5y
Andrew65 @Melissa_J I'd best not say too much as I over use the exclamation mark!!!! 😂 I agree definitely fast paced, and the good news is in my opinion they only get better. Wouldn't describe them as the best ever writing but does provide a cracking read overall. (edited) 5y

Mehso-so

As a lover of Old Egypt I has to pick this one. Titled a thriller but more an adventure story. It is nicely written, but I could see the main plot twist coming. Unfortunately the whole story is based upon a myth which is not true. It's not credible. That's why I gave it the So-So. But I liked the idea of the Hanging Gardens of Babylon, they were described in a magnificient way.

First of all, I didn't finish the book. I simply couldn't. It started off on a positive note, like a lot of first dates I've been on. Unfortunately it ended with a fake phone call, sudden emergency, gotta run - it's not you it's me kind of ending. I'm actually surprised I made it to page 70.

I can't wait to get properly stuck into re-reading this beauty after exams. It's a wonderful, thrilling, mystery of adventure. The rich history of the original wonders of the world is told fabulously through the strong characters and excellent story.
