Aliens, monsters, a life or death scenario, what more could you ask for? Matthew Reilly, one of New York’s bestsellers combines all of this into one book. Contest.
Contest is a novel that is so action packed you won’t want to stop reading. The story revolves around Dr. Stephen Swain as he plummets into the labyrinth of the New York State Library. By accident his daughter is dragged with him into an ancient contest where they both realise it’s either do or die. Swain faces a range of monsters, some are large and brutal and some are small and ferocious. Together with his guardian and of course his daughter, they have to fight until one contestant is deemed the winner.
