The Three Secret Cities by Matthew Reilly (Book 5 in the Jack West Jr. series)
The Three Secret Cities - Matthew Reilly

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 not have the same impact.


And dang, I also want to see another Scarecrow book!

 

5 stars for never-ending thrills and because I love this character!

The Boyhood Deeds of Cu Chulaind


Celtic heroes were mostly a precocious bunch and Cu Chulaind is a prime example, able to beat the other boys (all three fifties of them (at once)) at any feat of prowess and kill with his bare hands a dog that all the adult warriors are scared of. He goes on to single-handly defend Ulster from the assembled forces of most of the rest of Ireland for days.

The Cattle Raid of Froech


Cattle raiding is a Big Thing in the Irish Celtic stories. It also was a historical fact of the Scottish Highlanders' way of life. I'm not sure if it was pan-Celtic or not. Anyway, Froech wants to marry the daughter of Mebh but he's opposed at every turn and adventures ensue. Lots of Celtic literature motifs, including, rings, fairies, salmon, lake monsters, cattle raiding, feasting and complicated tasks required of the hero in order to get the girl...
