The Five Greatest Warriors - Matthew ReillyOrion, 2010, Hardback in Dust Wrapper.
Condition: Very Good — in Good Dust Wrapper. ½" closed tear to the top corner of the upper panel otherwise a very well presented copy.
From the cover: “With the end of the world fast approaching at the hands of a long foretold global catastrophe, Jack West Jr must rebuild the final pieces of the fabled, ancient ‘Machine’ — the only thing that can prevent the end. But he is out of clues, out of leads…until he is presented with an archaic text about five unnamed warriors, great historical figures who were all in some way connected to the mysterious Machine.
And so Jack and his loyal team set out to discover their identities — and their secrets.
Soon he is on the trail of a legendary list of greats: from Moses to Genghis Khan and Napoleon, and eventually to one most unlikely warrior — the unknown ‘Fifth’ who it is said will be there ‘at the end of all things’.
From the deserts of Israel to the storm-lashed coasts of Japan, to the wastes of Mongolia and the most mysterious island on Earth — this is what we have come to expect from Matthew Reilly: stupendous action, white-knuckle suspense and an adventure beyond imagining.”
