What the Critics Say

"Some of the wildest and most sustained battles in an action thriller in a long time...non-stop action, lots of explosions--and a little bit of conspiracy." (Chicago Tribune)

McGyver strikes again

Would you try another book from Matthew Reilly and/or Sean Mangan?

I probably won't try another book from this author. The hero is more of a McGyver type rather than a credible character, & there were too many common technical errors in the action for my liking.

The action never stops

I was really looking forward to reading this after I had finished Reilly's first book "The Contest". I must say, he lives up to his fast paced reputation with this one. But I didn't like it as much as his first. I didn't get what I thought I would. Scientists discover an alien spaceship under an ice shelf in the antarctica so they send in the army to inspect it. Throughout the whole book I was just waiting for the aliens to come out and start killing people. Alas this never happened, and it just turned into a battle to see which country could claim it. The Hero of the book Scarecrow seems almost superhuman with his ability to sustain injuries and keep killing everyone. He does some unbelievable things, but you move on anyway just to see how he'll get out of his next problem. It was like everything was against him, Killer whales, Sea lions, submarines, fighter jets, hovercrafts, navy seals, SAS and even his own country!! Reilly does have a great imagination even if it sometimes gets away from him. But he manages to sort of string it back to reality in the end. And his typical narrator Sean Mangan does the job we all appreciate him for, the voice of Matthew Reilly's stories. Well done to him. So the whole thing was just slightly too far fetched for me but it was lots of fun, it got straight into the action and never stopped. I look forward to Reilly's next one, "The Temple".
