I'm not normally a person that reads this genre but I couldn't put it down. A real page turner filled with action all the way through. Made me a BIG fan of this author. He is in his late 20s and is from Austrailia. No hanky panky and he makes a great read especially for those young men who are between the ages of young adult to adult where it's hard to find something that will hold your attention.
I liked this book, it was an interesting premise - a contest between one representative of each of the 7 different alien races - humans are included even though they don't have a clue about the whole thing. The aliens were interesting and you wonder how on earth our human representative will survive... good, fast read...
So much better than I expected! I've never been one to read books about monsters, but with this one.. it was so much mor about the mans survival, and getting his 8 year old daughter out alive.. wonderful book.
An interesting read. Extra-terrestrials use Earth as the place for an intergalactic warrior contest. A human is entered without knowing and without any clue that ET's really exist. A bloodbath ensues.
Will the human survive?
I read this book based on an online recommendation where I input authors that I liked and they gave me the suggestion of reading Matthew Reilly. I did like the book, there was plenty of non-stop action/adventure, was an unpredictable, non-formula story. The only thing lacking in the book was character development. We are introduced to several characters throughout the book, but I never really connected with any of them because they were superficial. But considering this was Matthew Reilly's first book, written when he was 19, I definitely plan on reading more of his books. I expect more non-stop action/adventure, and hope to see more character development.
