Greig Beck's 4th Arcadian book is a direct follow-up to the brilliant This Green Hell.

Our hero, Alex Hunter, has no memory of who (or what) he is and with the help of the beautiful, yet deadly, Mossad spy Adira Senesh sets out to discover his past.

Meanwhile, something not quite human has been accidentally released from the depths of hell and is attacking the quiet folk of a small American town. A colourful combination of characters investigate this and pretty soon alarm bells are ringing as it is slowly revealed to them exactly what they're dealing with.

Alex too is drawn to the same small American town searching for his answers. Pursued by numerous foreign (and domestic!) agencies who all want a piece of the Arcadian they all collide on Black Mountain for a frenetic climax.

Greig's books are such great fun and provide wonderful escapism. Up there with Matthew Reilly, Andy McDermott and James Rollins for action and adventure.

Can't wait for the next.

Format: Paperback
Four and a Half MASTERFUL Stars! "Black Mountain" is another wild literary ride by author Greig Beck detailing the latest exploits of super soldier Alex Hunter of the "Hotzone All-Forces Warfare Commandos" (HAWCs) and it covers a wide swath of time from 11,000 BC to 1935 to the current times at various locations around the world. In fact, so much is going on in subplots at various locations and is being written about so effectively, readers may have to re-adjust their mindset back onto the main plot.Author Beck has jammed this novel full of personages who are the stuff of nightmares, terrorists and counter-terrorists, amazing recoveries by Alex, forensic oddities, mysterious disappearances, and lots of gruesome physical battles. We also see the return of the lovely and dangerous Mossad agent Adira Senesh from "Dark Rising" and Professor Matt Kearns from "Beneath the Dark Ice (Alex Hunter)", plus other surprise characters. The novel opens with Alex recovering in Israel from the near-fatal activities of "This Green Hell", officially presumed dead by the USA and struggling to regain his physical and psychological strengths. Meanwhile, mysterious disappearances are occurring around Black Mountain in North Carolina and author Beck conjures up an accumulation of people who are involved in multiple action sequences that are highly imaginative and over-the-top. I won't give out any more information to spoil the fun and surprises.Read more ›

A very enjoyable book to escape into for pleasurable reading.

It flows well from the other books in the Arcadian series and I do feel that they need to be read in sequence for the nuances of the characters and their interactions to be appreciated.

Like the other books in the series I would suggest that the reader not analyse the plot too much but simply read for the fun of it but there was one point where I must admit that I did linger. The non-human characters in this book are based on the legends of a large primate creature which is of course known by different names in different parts of the world - could they have a basis in reality? I find that I keep hoping they just might and so like novels, such as this one, that weave this theme into their plot lines.

Decent follow up. Found myself wondering at a couple of characters motivations; one who needlessly walked into a situation that was so obviously dangerous, only a drugged up deranged fool would do it. The second is more serious as it relates to a principal character essentially betraying their nation and people... without, I thought, sufficient motivation.
Good action; but the Alex out of control, out of his mind and essentially being more wild animal than reasoning human got a little tiresome.
Not the strongest in the series but I will read more.

What you would expect, action adventure, blood and guts. Was a bit disappointed hunter and the beasts failed to meet earlier in the book.
