Captain Shane Schofield and his elite team of marines is about to discover...

There is no hell like a man-made one...

It is an island that doesn't appear on any maps. A secret location where the government conducts classified experiments. Experiments that have gone terribly wrong...

When all contact with the mysterious island is suddenly and inexplicably lost, Captain Shane Schofield and four crack Special Forces units parachute in. Nothing prepares them for what they find - the island is a testing ground for a deadly breed of genetically enhanced super-soldiers. You could say they've just entered hell, but this place is much, much worse...

Review: Captain Shane Schofield (codename: Scarecrow) and his team parachute in to an island where something has gone terribly wrong. They find a hangar full of human hands and the other teams that came in with them have suddenly gone quiet. Something is definitely wrong here and it's up to Scarecrow, Mother, and the rest of the team to figure out the truth before it's too late for the rest of the world.

Matthew Reilly's Hell Island novella was originally released in 2005 for the Australian Books Alive initiative. The novella was given away free with the purchase of any novel or book that was part the extensive Books Alive range, selected specifically to encourage reading across all demographics.

This novella is a wonderful addition to the Scarecrow books and is full of action and adventure. Scarecrow and his team will keep you glued to your seat as you find out the truth of 'Hell Island' along with them.
