“Jack West Jr has made it to the Supreme Labyrinth. Now he faces one last race – against multiple rivals, against time, against the collapse of the universe itself – a headlong race that will end at a throne inside the fabled labyrinth. But the road will be hard. For this is a maze like no other: a maze of mazes. Uncompromising and complex. Demanding and deadly. It all comes down to this. For it ends here – now – in the most lethal and dangerous place Jack has encountered in all of his many adventures. And in the face of this indescribable peril, with everything on the line, there is only one thing he can do. Attempt the impossible.”
After seventeen years, it all ends today. The final and epic conclusion to the Jack West Jr series is out now. All the research, thrilling writing and storytelling leading to one amazing conclusion within The One Impossible Labyrinth. Jack, Zoe, Lily and their friends pick up at once after the Two lost Mountains into a countdown to the Omega event. Three days to save the world, all existence and everyone Jack and his friends care for.
Matthew Reilly’s books have always been my go-to for action, adventure, and thrills. I cannot pick any books over his for compelling reads I know will capture my attention through the entirety of the storyline and effectively keep me running alongside them during the fast-paced motions. The final book in the Jack West Jr series, one of my top three favorite series in my collection, did not disappoint. He had an enormous pressure of not only writing a book that wrapped up this long awaiting ending but also topping up everything his characters had faced before and describing impossible, incredible things to his reader. As always, the images within the books help so much to show you what he is describing, and I love coming up to each new image in the book but even without them Matthew Reilly still achieves a great descriptive language at this quick pace that is never boring.
Readers will be happy to see many characters throughout the series are here for the final adventure and past foes too to settle a final score. This was the most emotional book yet too with so many raw conversations and heartbreaking moments for our beloved characters. I loved the snippets of information we learned throughout this one and my love from them grew even more! I am so looking forward to going back and reading these books again soon from start to finish experiencing each high and low again. I loved how the end of this book explored many external themes and kept you guessing until the very end how it would finish. Overall, there’s nothing else I need from these characters. They fulfilled their story-line perfectly. You would think getting to know more about them would make it hard to say goodbye, but the ending of this book felt right, there was nothing else to say but The End.
