As always, I highly recommend this book.
Having read all of the previous books in the series, I must mention that the one before this book (The Four Legendary Kingdoms) was my least favourite – It seemed to have ventured into an even more surreal world than that of the other books. MR fans know his books are over-the-top (think of a major motion picture with incredibly complex settings packed with traps, action, explosions, surprises, and extraordinary escapes). When the previous book (4) seemed to have crossed over to another realm I was worried that Jack’s story had passed its best. But, I’m very pleased to say that this new instalment, The Three Secret Cities, has reinvigorated the Jack West Jr. series.
Although it continues on from the ‘four’ book, its settings were grounded in a more real world, which I found easier to relate to and ‘believe’. As usual, the cast of characters was substantial, but even with all of their sub-plots in play, Jack still remained the core focus as he tried to save the world from oblivion. Without revealing anything specific, there were twists that I didn’t expect (nor hoped for) that knocked me for six. But that’s what books do – they draw you in, they engage you, they make you happy, they make you sad, they keep you hooked.
Jack West Jr. is back. This ‘three’ book in the series has all of the action, thrills, danger, complexity, and impossible escapes that I expect from Matthew Reilly. Thanks MR for continuing to share Jack with us.
However, even in that mind set I struggle whenever the characters start talking about space and 'galaxies'.
That isn't how they work... It isn't how any of that works.
Still an enjoyable read.
It continues right where The Four Legendary Kingdoms ended, and once again ends with a cliffhanger.
Because it is a sequel, readers must read the previous books in the series first, and I highly recommend reading the Shane Schofield/Scarecrow series up to Scarecrow beforehand.
A must read!
A great story to the very end
I look forward to the next installment
It was worth the read hard to put down
Good ole Jack West story and getting help from one of Scarecrows mates to help him.
