It began with six stones.

From the deserts of Israel to the tsunami-lashed coasts of Japan, from the steppes of Mongolia to the most mysterious island on Earth - this is what we have come to expect from Matthew Reilly: stupendous action, white-knuckle suspense, heroes to cheer for, and an adventure beyond imagination. Strap yourself in and hold on tight as he unleashes his biggest and fastest adventure yet, The 5 Greatest Warriors.

When we last left Jack West Jr., he was plummeting into a fathomless abyss and his quest to save the world from impending Armageddon appeared doomed.

But all hope is not lost.

After an astonishing escape, Jack regroups with his trusty team. Racing to rebuild the final pieces of the fabled Machine, they discover an ancient inscription containing a rhyme about five mysterious unnamed warriors - great historical figures whose knowledge will be vital to unlocking the secrets of the Machine and its long-lost pillars. But the ancients have hidden their secrets well, and with each pillar bestowing an incredible power upon its holder, their pursuit has attracted the attention of other forces from around the world - some who want to rule it and others who want to see it destroyed.

With enemies coming at him from every side and the countdown to doomsday rapidly approaching, Jack and his team had better move fast. Because they are about to find out what the end of the world looks like.

    " Waiting and waiting and waiting .... FINALLY! I kept checking Amazon to see when this was coming out. Took awhile, but I was happy to see it. Six & Five were a great continuation of the original Seven, but I think the first (Seven Deadly Wonders) was the best of the series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Matthew | 1/30/2014

    " Very good "ending" to the series, even though he plans on going all the way to 1. I think perhaps that he is trying to beat Dan Brown, but not quite getting there. But I liked it alot. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tara (box5angel) | 1/29/2014

    " Great end to an great series, but I don't think we've heard the last of Jack West, Jr. and his crew. I hope not because I'd love to read more of their adventures. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ron | 1/26/2014

    " Ok, I admit it I was a bit slow in reading this book. Honestly though as much as I enjoyed the book and finally getting to the end of this series it just didn't completely capture me the way I was hoping. Some thing about it made it too easy to just read a bit and put back down till I got to the middle of the book. From there it was a fun read up till the conclusion which seemed rushed. Sure it tied everything together but it was almost to easy and simplistic of an ending. You get so used to the solving of puzzles in this series and to have the end be a quick shortcut just kind of left me wanting something more, something bigger, something where the conclusion was more exciting. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Amy | 1/24/2014

    " This is the third book in the trilogy and does not have a cliff-hanger that book two did. There was a year in between books 2 & 3 which was annoying. Book one was great with the ancient wonders of the world. Book 2 was okay, far-fetched and I let it go. This one was so-so. I read the first 200 pages, skimmed, and read the mission. I like the diagrams the author includes, but sometimes he lets that be the set-up to the scene. All in all, it was a big disappointment. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bubbs | 1/15/2014

    " this is definetly mathhew reilly's top notch roller coaster ride, more deathes, more raomances, and more alliances are made. Great book!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Magic Mary Austin | 12/14/2013

    " This Jack West series is fun but not my favorite of Reilly's writings. Too big a suspension of disbelief is required with cliff-hangers whose resolutions are a bit too preposterous even for me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pammy | 11/21/2013

    " Loved it! waiting for more from Mathew Rielly! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jamissmile | 10/10/2013

    " I finally got my hands on this last book in the trilogy. It was a good ending. The book was filled with all the action and adventure I expected of it. I am jealous of Reilly's imagination. But still, not as good as Dan Brown. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 therices1 | 9/9/2013

    " Good ending. Intense action that is highly improbable but a fun read. Nice theme of choosing your family. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ann | 8/27/2013

    " Action-packed. Third in the series. Edge of your seat roller coaster ride. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tracy Grant | 8/7/2013

    " A fast, action packed adventure. I had forgotten how much I loved Matthew Reilly, definitely my favourite action author. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sharkcrow | 5/9/2013

    " A satisfying end to the trilogy. Yes, the action is OTT, but that is what makes it perfect holiday reading. My husband, sister and I all devoured this trilogy in days on a recent holiday, it can be enjoyed by all!!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 J.B. Sullivan | 1/7/2013

    " An absolute awesome read. The characters were solid as was the plot. It moved along at a generous speed without trailing into needless detail or rushing along with too little. The adventure left my heart racing and breathless. The best book out of the series, matched only by the novel Temple. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Stefan | 12/17/2011

    " This was the first time I started reading a german edition of a Matthew Reilly book. What a horrible translation - very quick and very, very dirty. Final editing? Obviously none... After 30 pages this edition went into the garbage can - but I will give the english edition another try. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Robert | 11/26/2011

    " Another ridiculously fast paced, intricately plotted, epic adventure. A fitting capstone to this adventure trilogy....although the author does hint at more to come... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sarah | 11/4/2011

    " loved even more "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Malia | 10/31/2011

    " LLong over due, still spectacular, if you want action you've got it, in this book...but I would recommend reading at least the two previous books first. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Trish | 10/23/2011

    " Ho hum - same ole, same old. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alice | 7/16/2011

    " If you want a fun read Reilly is the guy for it. Another great tall tale featuring Jack West Jr and friends. The follow up to 6SS and the third book to feature the team. It's got action, mystery and a lot of history. Not the best dialog or character development, but a great read! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Gavin | 5/20/2011

    " This adventure is just as fantastically unlikely as our previous encounters with Jack West Jr. Although perhaps a bit predictable at times, this is a thoroughly enjoyable read for anyone willing to suspend disbelief and allow themselves to get caught in the sweeping flow of the narrative. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Therices1 | 5/6/2011

    " Good ending. Intense action that is highly improbable but a fun read. Nice theme of choosing your family. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Melissa | 4/23/2011

    " A worthy ending to a great trilogy, this books pieces it all together and leaves the reader satisfied and content. I waited a little over a year for this book to be released and the wait was well worth it! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Steve | 4/19/2011

    " I enjoyed the book. It was a fast read--popcorn thriller. A good conclusion to the trilogy.. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cheryl | 4/11/2011

    " Finished this one in record time! In fact, it was seeing this at the bookstore that sent me hunting for the previous two. Classical good vs. evil with major twists through in along with the ancient sites. You'll have fun learning who the Five Greatest Warriors are. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Meggie | 4/11/2011

    " OMG so amazing, i love him! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Debbie | 3/8/2011

    " Typical Reilly's West Jr novel. Fast paced, action driven and fun. The characters are extremely one dimensional and the writing style bothered me, but worked well for a brain-rotting good time. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Victor | 3/8/2011

    " Great read. Typical roller coaster ride from start to finish. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Abimbola | 1/12/2011

    " Great read but not as good as the first 2 of the jack west jr series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anne | 1/7/2011

    " Another great thriller by Mr. Reilly. You will be on the edge of your seat as the heroes race to find objects to help save the earth from destruction. Recommended. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alys | 1/4/2011

    " He's come a long way since Contest. This book is well written, engaging and keeps the reader locked to the book til each adventure is finished. An interesting way to work so many known cultures/histories into one tale. "
