Six fabled stones.
Now, Jack West Jr and his loyal team of heroes must find and rebuild a legendary device known as ‘The Machine’ before the deadline for global destruction arrives. But the only clues to locating this Machine are held within the Six Sacred Stones, long lost to history.
An epic mission.
With just the riddles of ancient writers to guide them, and time rapidly running out, Jack and his team embark on their all-but impossible mission, only to discover that they are not alone in seeking the Stones, and that there might be other players out there who don’t want to see the world saved at all…
The mission is incredible. The consequences of failure are unimaginable. The ending is unthinkable.
“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
“[T]his fast-paced, international adventure will keep you turning pages…just sit back and enjoy the ride.” Elizabeth Willse, The Star-Ledger
“The 6 Sacred Stones is a pedal-to-the-metal literary ride, so hold on tight.” Larry Cox, Tucson Citizen
“Matthew Reilly novels should come with health warnings on the cover. [T]he non-stop life-threatening action from enemies using guns, missiles, poisons, machetes and martial arts against Reilly’s heroes is not for the faint-hearted. It’s a wild ride.” Ray Chesterton, The Daily Telegraph
“The age-, sex- and race-balanced team from Reilly’s 2006 thrill-a-second novel 7 Deadly Wonders returns, still under the management of handily bionic and super resourceful Australian Commando Jack West…[A] video game in print.” Kirkus Reviews
“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
