The Three Secret Cities Reviews

  • Jennifer (JC-S)
    Jan 19, 2019

    You've got to love Matthew Reilly, he never lets you down. This latest book in the Jack West Jnr series is the usual whirlwind of a book, never letting up on the action, as Jack and his team race around the world finding the location of the Three Secret Cities of the title. As usual th...

    OH MY GOD I CAN'T DEAL. And you're telling me I have to wait til freaking 2020 for the next one?!! I don't even know how to process this. This book has been my most anticipated read of 2018, and it did not disappoint. There's the trademark action involving vehicles and ...

    Thanks to Netgalley and the publisher for providing me with an ARC in exchange for an honest review! Man alive, was this one a roller coaster ride??? Oh wait, they all are. This one, though, might tear your heart out. There's torture and suffering and death.... but there's also a lo...

    Despite the hefty page count, Matthew Reilly's books are super quick reads loaded with pure adrenaline - and the latest installment in the Jack West Jr. series is no different. Whereas the previous book, The Four Legendary Kingdoms focused primarily on a single location, Hades, The...

    This is the only author that I buy in hardback, but I must be getting old - normally that would be on release day, and I would finish it within 24 hours, but I didn?t feel quite the same urgency this time, and I?ve read other books in parallel with it. Don?t get me wrong, it?s ...

    the four legendary kingdoms take 2 I like the fact that years have not passed by just days. Shane Schofield reappearance ?mmmm no need to write another scarecrow book, kill two birds with one stone and just put the two together save time save paper. With his announcement a w...

    I woke up at 3am and finished this book. Love Matthew Reilly books. This book is a continuation of The Four Lengendary Kingdoms. After Jack wins the trials he is now forced to face the same people to save the planet. This book leaves you with a cliff hanger so I have no doubt there wil...

    THE THREE SECRET CITIES by Matthew Reilly is the fifth book in the Jack West, Jr series, and I'm very late to the party as this is the first book I read in the series. Luckily, it was a very easy book to get into since it all begins with a summarizing of what happened at the end of ...

    Take all the stars Mr Reilly - take them all. I had a copy of this and Thrawn Alliances in my hands to read and I chose this one. There is no other author that would be able to make me do that. One look at this and I had to read it first. The world building is fantastic. For a bo...

    *SPOILERS* This series has really lost its way, which is a real shame. The first three Jack West novels were something else and all-time favourites of mine, a really incredible story with great characters. The Four Legendary Kingdoms I found pretty enjoyable, standard Reilly/Jack...

    I have finally had some time to process my emotions after finishing this book. I can't believe I ended it with tears streaming down my face - that is not meant to happen with a Jack West Jnr novel. There are no tears in ancient warfare!!! As always, well researched and planned out. I ...

    Wow what a thrilling ride. I?m so glad I picked this up right after finishing The Four Legendary Kingdoms, because this helped me remember all the juicy tidbits before diving into another Jack West Jr story. This book gave me all the feels that I first felt when I discovered The Seve...

    The grand set-pieces are here. The lost history and hidden mystery are here. The over-indulgent use of italics and exclamation points are here. But the scale and sense of urgency are both so large as to defy the suspension of disbelief necessary to have gotten this far in the series. C...

    I love Matthew Reillys novels. So much action and thrills. It reminds me of when I was a kid as during my high school days thats all I read. Jack is back, but this one we have the old school Reilly, more global adventures and puzzles to solve. Just think Indiana Jones x100. Some of the...

    I was always going to enjoy this, but Matthew?s fast paced action still makes me smile. This picks up right after Four Legendary Kingdoms so I did need to give myself a little reminder of how it ended ? I love the little ongoing relationship between Jack and Scarecrow ?...

    I'm not crying, you're crying. Holy shit what an ending. We have to wait until 2020 for the sequel? ::::Head desk:::: ...

    I suspect each time Matthew Reilly sits down to write a new book he asks himself the same question. ?How can I push the action quotient further than I did last time?? The good news, from our perspective at least, is that he keeps managing it. I can sum up each new Matthew Reilly no...

    While I like the Jack West Jr books, I do not love them. Too PG-13 for me. I am a Die Hard thriller type of reader and these stories are too much kiddie adventure for me. I love Johnny Quest, but I am looking for Scarecrow type action. With West, it is more like Indiana Jones on steroi...

    I love Matthew Reilly's thrillers and Jack West is a great hero. This sixth book in the West series is a fine thriller. Hugely exciting, taking place across much of the globe and with some big shocks. As usual, the book is packed full of diagrams and charts that really add to the mood....

    What do you meannn I need to wait until 2020 for the next book?! ...

    ?For three whole days after the Great Games, the Underworld lay silent.? And then, the action started. The Four Legendary Kingdoms are in turmoil. The world is doomed, unless Jack West Jr and his friends can save it. It?s simple, really, all they must do is find the three anci...

    Take all the stars Mr Reilly - take them all. I had a copy of this and Thrawn Alliances in my hands to read and I chose this one. There is no other author that would be able to make me do that. One look at this and I had to read it first. The world building is fantastic. For a bo...

    I have finally had some time to process my emotions after finishing this book. I can't believe I ended it with tears streaming down my face - that is not meant to happen with a Jack West Jnr novel. There are no tears in ancient warfare!!! As always, well researched and planned out. I ...

    You've got to love Matthew Reilly, he never lets you down. This latest book in the Jack West Jnr series is the usual whirlwind of a book, never letting up on the action, as Jack and his team race around the world finding the location of the Three Secret Cities of the title. As usual th...

    OH MY GOD I CAN'T DEAL. And you're telling me I have to wait til freaking 2020 for the next one?!! I don't even know how to process this. This book has been my most anticipated read of 2018, and it did not disappoint. There's the trademark action involving vehicles and ...

    Thanks to Netgalley and the publisher for providing me with an ARC in exchange for an honest review! Man alive, was this one a roller coaster ride??? Oh wait, they all are. This one, though, might tear your heart out. There's torture and suffering and death.... but there's also a lo...

    This is the only author that I buy in hardback, but I must be getting old - normally that would be on release day, and I would finish it within 24 hours, but I didn?t feel quite the same urgency this time, and I?ve read other books in parallel with it. Don?t get me wrong, it?s ...

    I love Matthew Reillys novels. So much action and thrills. It reminds me of when I was a kid as during my high school days thats all I read. Jack is back, but this one we have the old school Reilly, more global adventures and puzzles to solve. Just think Indiana Jones x100. Some of the...

    While I like the Jack West Jr books, I do not love them. Too PG-13 for me. I am a Die Hard thriller type of reader and these stories are too much kiddie adventure for me. I love Johnny Quest, but I am looking for Scarecrow type action. With West, it is more like Indiana Jones on steroi...

    I love Matthew Reilly's thrillers and Jack West is a great hero. This sixth book in the West series is a fine thriller. Hugely exciting, taking place across much of the globe and with some big shocks. As usual, the book is packed full of diagrams and charts that really add to the mood....

    Five stars because the epilogue gripped me that hard, and I couldn't put it down. While I miss some of the tomb running that this series has abandoned to turn into something that reads more like a Michael Bay movie on steroids, I still find this series a guilty pleasure. And also, the ...

    OH MY GOD I CAN'T DEAL. And you're telling me I have to wait til freaking 2020 for the next one?!! I don't even know how to process this. This book has been my most anticipated read of 2018, and it did not disappoint. There's the trademark action involving vehicles and ...

    Thanks to Netgalley and the publisher for providing me with an ARC in exchange for an honest review! Man alive, was this one a roller coaster ride??? Oh wait, they all are. This one, though, might tear your heart out. There's torture and suffering and death.... but there's also a lo...

    Despite the hefty page count, Matthew Reilly's books are super quick reads loaded with pure adrenaline - and the latest installment in the Jack West Jr. series is no different. Whereas the previous book, The Four Legendary Kingdoms focused primarily on a single location, Hades, The...

    This is the only author that I buy in hardback, but I must be getting old - normally that would be on release day, and I would finish it within 24 hours, but I didn?t feel quite the same urgency this time, and I?ve read other books in parallel with it. Don?t get me wrong, it?s ...

    the four legendary kingdoms take 2 I like the fact that years have not passed by just days. Shane Schofield reappearance ?mmmm no need to write another scarecrow book, kill two birds with one stone and just put the two together save time save paper. With his announcement a w...

    I woke up at 3am and finished this book. Love Matthew Reilly books. This book is a continuation of The Four Lengendary Kingdoms. After Jack wins the trials he is now forced to face the same people to save the planet. This book leaves you with a cliff hanger so I have no doubt there wil...

    THE THREE SECRET CITIES by Matthew Reilly is the fifth book in the Jack West, Jr series, and I'm very late to the party as this is the first book I read in the series. Luckily, it was a very easy book to get into since it all begins with a summarizing of what happened at the end of ...

    Take all the stars Mr Reilly - take them all. I had a copy of this and Thrawn Alliances in my hands to read and I chose this one. There is no other author that would be able to make me do that. One look at this and I had to read it first. The world building is fantastic. For a bo...

    *SPOILERS* This series has really lost its way, which is a real shame. The first three Jack West novels were something else and all-time favourites of mine, a really incredible story with great characters. The Four Legendary Kingdoms I found pretty enjoyable, standard Reilly/Jack...

    I have finally had some time to process my emotions after finishing this book. I can't believe I ended it with tears streaming down my face - that is not meant to happen with a Jack West Jnr novel. There are no tears in ancient warfare!!! As always, well researched and planned out. I ...

    Wow what a thrilling ride. I?m so glad I picked this up right after finishing The Four Legendary Kingdoms, because this helped me remember all the juicy tidbits before diving into another Jack West Jr story. This book gave me all the feels that I first felt when I discovered The Seve...

    The grand set-pieces are here. The lost history and hidden mystery are here. The over-indulgent use of italics and exclamation points are here. But the scale and sense of urgency are both so large as to defy the suspension of disbelief necessary to have gotten this far in the series. C...

    I love Matthew Reillys novels. So much action and thrills. It reminds me of when I was a kid as during my high school days thats all I read. Jack is back, but this one we have the old school Reilly, more global adventures and puzzles to solve. Just think Indiana Jones x100. Some of the...

    I was always going to enjoy this, but Matthew?s fast paced action still makes me smile. This picks up right after Four Legendary Kingdoms so I did need to give myself a little reminder of how it ended ? I love the little ongoing relationship between Jack and Scarecrow ?...

    I'm not crying, you're crying. Holy shit what an ending. We have to wait until 2020 for the sequel? ::::Head desk:::: ...

    I suspect each time Matthew Reilly sits down to write a new book he asks himself the same question. ?How can I push the action quotient further than I did last time?? The good news, from our perspective at least, is that he keeps managing it. I can sum up each new Matthew Reilly no...

    While I like the Jack West Jr books, I do not love them. Too PG-13 for me. I am a Die Hard thriller type of reader and these stories are too much kiddie adventure for me. I love Johnny Quest, but I am looking for Scarecrow type action. With West, it is more like Indiana Jones on steroi...

    I love Matthew Reilly's thrillers and Jack West is a great hero. This sixth book in the West series is a fine thriller. Hugely exciting, taking place across much of the globe and with some big shocks. As usual, the book is packed full of diagrams and charts that really add to the mood....

    What do you meannn I need to wait until 2020 for the next book?! ...

    ?For three whole days after the Great Games, the Underworld lay silent.? And then, the action started. The Four Legendary Kingdoms are in turmoil. The world is doomed, unless Jack West Jr and his friends can save it. It?s simple, really, all they must do is find the three anci...

    Five stars because the epilogue gripped me that hard, and I couldn't put it down. While I miss some of the tomb running that this series has abandoned to turn into something that reads more like a Michael Bay movie on steroids, I still find this series a guilty pleasure. And also, the ...

    Holy moly...this book was something!! The thrills just keep on coming, but that ending...oh, that ending....I was crying, then I was like, "say what?!" It royally sucks to have to wait for the next one! Do not attempt to read this if you have not read the Jack West series, it will...

    Trigger warnings: violence, graphic death, gun violence, torture, mentions of rape, death of a family member, explosions, probably other stuff too it's late and I'm tired I'm sorry. 3.5 stars. I've been reading Matthew Reilly's books since Ice Station came out like 20 years ago...

    I wish I could give these books more than 5 stars!!! I can't get enough of them and devastated that now I have finished I have to wait for the next one to come out. Matthew Reilly really knows how to keep you on the edge of your seat with non stop action on every page and with each cha...

    The worst thing about reading a Matthew Reilly novel as soon as it releases is that you have to wait for 2 whole years before you get to read the next one. The book begins pretty much right where the previous novel left off and the thrill ride and emotional roller coaster doesn't stop ...

    The Three Secret Cities is Matthew Reilly at his best showcasing 3 of everything. 3 quests to 3 cities guarded by 3 guardians carrying 3 ancient weapons to empower it while battling bronze warriors who search for their master. The Four Kingdoms ended with Jack West Junior blowing...

    Good fun but certainly not to be taken seriously. Reilly is under so much pressure to stick to his theme of ancient wonders he is being forced to go to some very whacky places and cover all his bases again and again. A typical conversation goes "Ahh Mr West, the Fifth great warrior ...

    OH MY GOD I CAN'T DEAL. And you're telling me I have to wait til freaking 2020 for the next one?!! I don't even know how to process this. This book has been my most anticipated read of 2018, and it did not disappoint. There's the trademark action involving vehicles and ...

    Thanks to Netgalley and the publisher for providing me with an ARC in exchange for an honest review! Man alive, was this one a roller coaster ride??? Oh wait, they all are. This one, though, might tear your heart out. There's torture and suffering and death.... but there's also a lo...

    Despite the hefty page count, Matthew Reilly's books are super quick reads loaded with pure adrenaline - and the latest installment in the Jack West Jr. series is no different. Whereas the previous book, The Four Legendary Kingdoms focused primarily on a single location, Hades, The...

    This is the only author that I buy in hardback, but I must be getting old - normally that would be on release day, and I would finish it within 24 hours, but I didn?t feel quite the same urgency this time, and I?ve read other books in parallel with it. Don?t get me wrong, it?s ...

    the four legendary kingdoms take 2 I like the fact that years have not passed by just days. Shane Schofield reappearance ?mmmm no need to write another scarecrow book, kill two birds with one stone and just put the two together save time save paper. With his announcement a w...

    I woke up at 3am and finished this book. Love Matthew Reilly books. This book is a continuation of The Four Lengendary Kingdoms. After Jack wins the trials he is now forced to face the same people to save the planet. This book leaves you with a cliff hanger so I have no doubt there wil...

    THE THREE SECRET CITIES by Matthew Reilly is the fifth book in the Jack West, Jr series, and I'm very late to the party as this is the first book I read in the series. Luckily, it was a very easy book to get into since it all begins with a summarizing of what happened at the end of ...

    Take all the stars Mr Reilly - take them all. I had a copy of this and Thrawn Alliances in my hands to read and I chose this one. There is no other author that would be able to make me do that. One look at this and I had to read it first. The world building is fantastic. For a bo...

    I have finally had some time to process my emotions after finishing this book. I can't believe I ended it with tears streaming down my face - that is not meant to happen with a Jack West Jnr novel. There are no tears in ancient warfare!!! As always, well researched and planned out. I ...

    Wow what a thrilling ride. I?m so glad I picked this up right after finishing The Four Legendary Kingdoms, because this helped me remember all the juicy tidbits before diving into another Jack West Jr story. This book gave me all the feels that I first felt when I discovered The Seve...

    I love Matthew Reillys novels. So much action and thrills. It reminds me of when I was a kid as during my high school days thats all I read. Jack is back, but this one we have the old school Reilly, more global adventures and puzzles to solve. Just think Indiana Jones x100. Some of the...

    I was always going to enjoy this, but Matthew?s fast paced action still makes me smile. This picks up right after Four Legendary Kingdoms so I did need to give myself a little reminder of how it ended ? I love the little ongoing relationship between Jack and Scarecrow ?...

    I'm not crying, you're crying. Holy shit what an ending. We have to wait until 2020 for the sequel? ::::Head desk:::: ...

    I suspect each time Matthew Reilly sits down to write a new book he asks himself the same question. ?How can I push the action quotient further than I did last time?? The good news, from our perspective at least, is that he keeps managing it. I can sum up each new Matthew Reilly no...

    While I like the Jack West Jr books, I do not love them. Too PG-13 for me. I am a Die Hard thriller type of reader and these stories are too much kiddie adventure for me. I love Johnny Quest, but I am looking for Scarecrow type action. With West, it is more like Indiana Jones on steroi...

    I love Matthew Reilly's thrillers and Jack West is a great hero. This sixth book in the West series is a fine thriller. Hugely exciting, taking place across much of the globe and with some big shocks. As usual, the book is packed full of diagrams and charts that really add to the mood....

    ?For three whole days after the Great Games, the Underworld lay silent.? And then, the action started. The Four Legendary Kingdoms are in turmoil. The world is doomed, unless Jack West Jr and his friends can save it. It?s simple, really, all they must do is find the three anci...

    Five stars because the epilogue gripped me that hard, and I couldn't put it down. While I miss some of the tomb running that this series has abandoned to turn into something that reads more like a Michael Bay movie on steroids, I still find this series a guilty pleasure. And also, the ...

    Holy moly...this book was something!! The thrills just keep on coming, but that ending...oh, that ending....I was crying, then I was like, "say what?!" It royally sucks to have to wait for the next one! Do not attempt to read this if you have not read the Jack West series, it will...

    Trigger warnings: violence, graphic death, gun violence, torture, mentions of rape, death of a family member, explosions, probably other stuff too it's late and I'm tired I'm sorry. 3.5 stars. I've been reading Matthew Reilly's books since Ice Station came out like 20 years ago...

    I wish I could give these books more than 5 stars!!! I can't get enough of them and devastated that now I have finished I have to wait for the next one to come out. Matthew Reilly really knows how to keep you on the edge of your seat with non stop action on every page and with each cha...
