Seven Ancient Wonders (Seven Deadly Wonders in the United States of America) is a book written by Australian author Matthew Reilly in 2005.

Two thousand years ago, it was hidden within the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. Captain Jack West Jr - part soldier, part scholar, all hero. The odds are stacked against him and his loyal team: nine brave companions taking on the most powerful countries on earth.

Matthew Reilly is the Australian-born author of bestselling novels Contest, Ice Station, Temple, Area 7, Scarecrow and Seven Ancient Wonders, which reached the Sunday Times top-ten bestseller list.

Seven Ancient Wonders. Adobe eReader format. The structure inside the mountain was an ancient mine delved during the reign of Ptolemy I, around the year 300 BC. During the great age of Egypt, the Sudan was known as ‘Nubia’, a word derived from the Egyptian word for gold: nub. Nubia: the Land of Gold. And indeed it was. It was from Nubia that the ancient Egyptians sourced the gold for their many temples and treasures. Records unearthed in Alexandria revealed that this mine had run out of gold 70 years after its founding, after which it gained a second life as a quarry for the rare hardstone, diorite.

Matthew Reilly is the international bestselling author of eight novels: The 6 Sacred Stones, 7 Deadly Wonders, Ice Station, Temple, Contest, Area 7, Scarecrow, and the children's book Hover Car Racer, and one novella, Hell Island.

The greatest statue in history. IT TOWERED like a god above the mouth of Mandraki harbor, the main port of the island state of Rhodes, much like the Statue of Liberty does today in New York. Guided by the tall, white-bearded Wizard-who held in one hand a very ancient papyrus scroll and in the other a very modern sonic-resonance imager-they stopped abruptly on a mud mound about ninety yards from the base of the mountain. It was shaded by four bending lotus trees. Here! the old fellow called, seeing something on the mound.

And since it’s inside a volcano, it even looks like Hell. It is just the two of them-plus Horus, of course. The team does not even exist at this time. Their clothes are covered in mud and tar-they’ve survived a long and arduous path to get here. West wears his fireman’s helmet and thick-soled army boots

Great story for anyone who is a fan of Indian Jones or Clive Cussler type books. I could have done without some of the language peppered in here and there but all in all it is a great book. I can't wait to finish the rest of the series and see what else Matthew Reilly comes up with!

I love this book. I have read it a couple of times, and each time, it is a fun read.
This book is about a small team of 10 taking on two major powers.
The prospect of destruction of earth, 7 ancient wonders, climax at the top of the Giza pyramid. This book had it all.

A little fun. I like stressful situations, narrow escapes, and unique equipment. However, this book goes from one narrow unbelievable escape to another. It got to be a little too much. And some of the weapons/equipment were stretching things more than necessary. In addition, having Americans for bad guys was not attractive for me.

Matthew's books are the literary equivalent of a big budget Michael Bay movie. But even that comparison isn't fair. This book is way better, the locations and action scenes are bigger and more intense and You actually care about the characters!
Ghile
A great read, a great cast of characters. The only negative, but a positive, is that you will have to read the rest of the Jack West books because they are addictive.

Personally I never got into the book and read it off and on for about a year. It wasn’t a page turner and one that I couldn’t put down. I’m sure there are other that would disagree but just for me personally it was hard to get into. The ending was a bit hokey and could have had a better build up. I did enjoy the back half of the book getting into the traps and difficult situations.

Enjoyed story immensely, plot grabs you on page 1. A redemptive, imaginative story with truly heroic characters and dastardly villains. I choose to believe in the redemption value of people in general, not necessarily the imagined personalities countries can exhibit. Thank you for an interesting, challenging book! Well done.
Matthew Reilly turns convention upside down and shakes it, hard, in his novels. Nothing is forbidden and nobody is safe.

In Seven Deadly Wonders, it's America's turn as the bad guys. America's thoroughly relentless and sacred-site destroying villains are joined by evil Europeans who are thinly veiled Vatican hit men, and some nasty Israelis who are pleased to leave a little girl to drown in quicksand.

But wait, as the Ginsu knife man might say, there's more! Reilly's heroes are from the "minnow" countries -- Canada, Australia, Jamaica (Jamaica, you say? Yes, I reply: Jamaica) Spain, and Saudi Arabia.

Every convention of the action novel is turned on its head. By the time Jack West Jr. storms Guantanamo Bay to rescue an unrelentingly evil Islamic terrorist from the Americans, the roller coaster is in full loop-de-loop and I'm laughing out loud.

Don't worry and enjoy the ride. Reilly never forgets that people are ultimately responsible for what they do. He illustrates the choices that people are free to make, no matter what uniform they wear or what orders they've received. Anyone, no matter what uniform or what country they're from, can choose to be a hero or a villain. Switching the uniforms -- and countries -- merely illustrates the point.

I enjoyed the novel and I think you will, too. I give this one four stars because of the editing work. The editors need to edit the work for italic use, exclamation points, and diagrams that slow down the story instead of enhancing it. Turn quickly past the many diagrams and lose yourself in the chase. Have fun!
