THE END OF THE WORLD IS HERE

After their thrilling exploits in Matthew Reilly's rampaging New York Times bestseller, 7 Deadly Wonders, supersoldier Jack West Jr. and his loyal team of adventurers are back, and now they face an all-but-impossible challenge.

A mysterious ceremony in an unknown location has triggered a catastrophic countdown that will climax in no less than the end of all life on Earth. But Jack and his team might be able to ward off the coming Armageddon if they can find the fabled Six Sacred Stones, which hold clues to a legendary ancient device long lost in the fog of history. As the hunt begins, Jack and his team discover that they are not the only ones seeking the Stones...and that there might just be other players out there who don't want to see the world saved at all.

From Stonehenge in England to the deserts of Egypt to the spectacular Three Gorges region in China, The 6 Sacred Stones will take you on a nonstop rollercoaster ride through ancient history, modern military hardware, and some of the fastest and most mind-blowing action you will ever hear.

Quotes & Awards

  • "The 6 Sacred Stones is a pedal-to-the-metal literary ride, so hold on tight.”

    Tucson Citizen

  • Nobody writes action like Matthew Reilly."

    -- Vince Flynn, bestselling author of Consent to Kill
  • "The wildly imaginative Reilly has taken inspiration from comics, video games, thrillers and Code-style puzzle novels to create this rocket-fueled sequel to his 7 Deadly Wonders...A tongue-in-cheek quality (one that extends to the low-tech looking maps and illustrations) will help readers find this outlandish adventure thrilling.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “In this sequel to Seven Deadly Wonders, Reilly increases the tension and the threat to produce another winner. The interwoven combination of action and mythology in the narrative makes for the perfect winter beach read."

    Library Journal

  • "Whisking you through wave after wave of nonstop action on a cloud of exuberant improbabilities, Reilly really makes you feel like a kid again; it's a blast.”

    Booklist

  • New York Times Bestseller

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Elizabeth | 2/9/2014

    " Had to buy a copy of this on my iPod to read and it was the first book I've ever read on my iPod. I was highly distracted by using an electronic format. That being said, I loved it just as much as the first one. It seemed just a bit slower than the first or third but again, that could be because of the format. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Plamen Kolev | 1/25/2014

    " Fantastic, great book! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cameron | 1/23/2014

    " Again,full of bullshit but still an enjoyable book...by the third book I don't mind the fantasy part "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Teresa | 1/22/2014

    " Good interesting beginning "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Chris Swain | 1/21/2014

    " More of the same Seven Deadly Wonders reading. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Brenda | 1/12/2014

    " My first reaction after finishing this book is GRRRR!!! I didn't realize that this was part of a multi-book story and the sequel hasn't been released yet (October 2009)!!! I really wish you could do 1/2 star ratings on this site. I would actually give this a 2.5 stars. It was okay but I did get involved in the story which was somewhat predictable...good guy in danger...good guy gets out...good guy in danger...yada yada yada. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Travis | 1/8/2014

    " It was pretty good. I was disappointed that I didn't have the next book on hand when I finished it because, unlike 7 Deadly Wonders, this book does not finish the storyline. I also thought it odd that Lily goes from chanting "swear jar!" in the first book to being best friends with a 12-year-old potty mouth. :\ "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Debra | 12/30/2013

    " I loved it, but don't want to wait for the next one!!! I wish he had just written one big book because I'm not good at waiting. Lots of adventure and never stops moving. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tim | 12/25/2013

    " I guess there is another book in this series coming out because the book really never ended. At least in my opinion. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sandip | 12/3/2013

    " Quick read, but very detailed and the action is nonstop. Book 2 of a series, although it stood alone rather nicely. I'll be tracking down book 1 just to get the backstory. And waiting for book 3 now. Stupid stupid cliffhanger endings... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kim Priestman | 11/7/2013

    " A really great series. I just love the characters. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sally Daffarn | 10/6/2013

    " Gripping. A bit violent in places, tense in most but a good read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Gareth Campbell | 9/2/2013

    " Too over the top, and written like an excited 6 year old explaining an episode of G.I.Joe he saw over the weekend. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Melissa | 5/8/2013

    " The sequel to Seven Ancient Wonders is a must read! More action and more adventure than the first, this book brings more characters to the table and more story behind our hero, Jack West Jr. Watch out for the ultimate cliffhanger for you just might have to get the last in the trilogy! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Linn | 5/3/2013

    " Not bad but not new for this genre. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Janet | 11/3/2012

    " This was a very good story. Fascinating, high adventure, but it just stopped, ended. It ended so abruptly, I thought I was missing part of my book. What happens to many loose ends. I want closure. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sandyboy | 2/19/2012

    " more of the same but if it tastes good then why not? "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cheryl | 2/11/2012

    " A really great must read! Love Jack West Jr. Non-stop action & amazing twists from the start to the unbelievable ending. This is the Second Book of the Series....you have to add this to your must read list!!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carlyna | 12/3/2011

    " Full of action. The Harry Potter message encryption method was very clever. Shame I didn't realise it was the second of a trilogy until I finished the book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gavin | 11/19/2011

    " I read this on a sun lounge in Bali. Great read and thoroughly enjoyed it. Reilly is great at keeping you moving through the storyline. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Arman | 9/28/2011

    " Whilst not quite as good as the first, SSS still is a great entertainer, one that delves into new branches of plots. But come on Matthew, really? A cliffhanger? Hmm... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gina Durst | 6/29/2011

    " For the type of book it is, it's pretty enjoyable. There's a lot of running about and a lot of problem solving and treasure hunting. Very easy read, but quite fun. "

    " an very annoying book.It's James Bond without detail and no girls.It's not finished...why? and the written with no clear chapters it's messy and i won't bother reading this writer again "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Therices1 | 5/6/2011

    " Good book, but with a cliffhanger ending. You need to read the next one to finish the story. Continues where Seven Deadly Wonders leaves off. You don't need to read Seven Deadly Wonders to enjoy this book. Enough of that story is told within this book to understand it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Melissa | 4/23/2011

    " The sequel to Seven Ancient Wonders is a must read! More action and more adventure than the first, this book brings more characters to the table and more story behind our hero, Jack West Jr. Watch out for the ultimate cliffhanger for you just might have to get the last in the trilogy! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Steve | 4/19/2011

    " I really liked this book. It is a continuation of the Seven Deadly Wonders story, but I thought this storyline was much better. I really liked Wizard in this story and his knowledge of things in Reilly's world.. This book is good fun read for those people like popcorn thrillers--fun stuff.. "

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

    " Loved this one also. Can't beat Reilly for mixing up ancient history with modern dilemmas! Would have to say that this type of book is my favorite. "

    " Probably Matt Reilly's worst book. Some of the material was ridiculous and the main characters are just too awesome and cliched. Although the book was very interesting. "

    " Matthew Reilly is my favorite Contemporary Author. "

    " Excellent read... couldn't put it down, if I worked with less nice people I might've been in trouble at work. Do not buy/read this book, unless you have the next in the series... "

    " Poorly written - though reasonably interesting "
