This is an excellent finish to brilliant series of fast paced action adventure. Well narrated by Sean Mangan and brilliantly written and researched by Matthew Reilly. Who is the fifth great warrior? Listen and read the final book in the series that began with Seven Ancient Wonders to find out. Who will gain the ultimate power over life and death? Can Jack, Lily and their team save the world again?
At last the conclusion of Matthew Reilly's Jack West Jr. series has come and all bets are off. When last we saw the bold Australian adventure, he was plummeting down into an endless darkness towards a terrible death and the rest of his team made up in 'Minos', are in disarray. Any disappointment loyal readers felt at this stunted end to the Six Sacred Stones, has been appeased in this final installments.
Against the tightest of deadlines, the 'Minos' stumbles on against their evil rivals (including Jack's father) to prevent them in gaining control of the 'Machine' and the gifts it bestows.
Jack must lead his team over continents, into the clutches of ancient traps and at the rise of planets and moons, they will come face to face with the 5th warrior.
The gory and intensity of the first two installments are continued in The Five Greatest Warriors, no doubt much to the delight of fans. While Reilly adheres to many of the adventuring trilogy staples, he definitely throws some surprises at his readers. One of the things I like most about this series, is that the main character is Australian; brave and clever, without falling into the usual stereotypes. I am very much hoping that the next Jack West Jr. tales will be near in the future. In perfect Reilly style, this trilogy is concluded leaving your glued to your seat until the last page without missing a beat.

There is some glitchy audio where words get cut and the book's rhythm is lost however; doesn't take away from the all over story, but that is the bad. Great book, consumed it in two days. I love the way this guy writes. hardcore action. All the characters feel so real. I loved the entire journey. Now for the next one.
