    Horrible novelization of a great television series This piece should have been posted on a fan fiction page and not as a published piece of work.The plot contained so many holes it detracted from any possible story The first issue was the fact that the characters seem to be fighting a losing battle for government permission to return Atlantis to the Pegasus galaxy When all seems lost the people in charge suddenly tell the crew they are leaving in 48 hours For no apparent reason and not con Horrible novelization of a great television series This piece should have been posted on a fan fiction page and not as a published piece of work.The plot contained so many holes it detracted from any possible story The first issue was the fact that the characters seem to be fighting a losing battle for government permission to return Atlantis to the Pegasus galaxy When all seems lost the people in charge suddenly tell the crew they are leaving in 48 hours For no apparent reason and not considering the fact that the ZPM s powering Atlantis are almost drained Then during the trip back they experience a catastrophic power loss, come out of hyperspace on the edge of the galaxy and determine the nearest planet is going to be their new home No mention is made of trying to restore power and attempting to find aadvantageous planet.Once Atlantis lands they decide to reestablish contact with their allies and learn some new Wraith queen has taken charge Queen Death which the author could have done better coming up with a name is consolidating power and applying a slash and burn technique of killing all humans.During a climactic battle scene, the Wraith are thwarted by a few soldiers and some flares The author apparently expects little of the person reading this book So the reader is supposed to accept that a race of beings who defeated the Ancients and dominate a galaxy are scared away by a bunch of flares Plus, no mention is made that the Wraith would simply come back in overwhelming numbers Instead, everyone celebrates as if the war is over And where were the Puddle Jumpers One of the major tactical advantages of Atlantis is nowhere to be found in most of the book.The author does not understand the Atlantis characters John Sheppard comes across as a emasculated babysitter in most of the book, not as his cocky, self confident character in the series And this brings me to the question of why is every major character in Atlantis at some point a babysitter Teyla s child did not factor much into the series Why change that The baby shouldn t be a major plot piece.Rodney McKay is in touch with his feelings and is a kind and caring boyfriend This is not even close to the super intelligent television character One of my favorite parts is when Ronon Dex quotes poetry I thought this scene crossed the boundary of ludicrous and entered the realm of the asinine.These excerpts are just a few of the many elements that served to make this such a bad novel The author s subpar use of grammar also detracted from the novel The liberal use of was made the novel read like something a high school student would write Formulaic sentence structures of this was or that was dominated much of the book, which is passive writing and detracts from good writing.I could continue, but felt this novel has wasted enough of my time

    First book in the Stargate Atlantis Legacy e series, derivative of the television series Stargate Atlantis, which concluded with lots of loose ends I wanted to know the rest of the story, especially about Todd Guide the ancient Wraith, and his uneasy alliance brotherhood with Colonol John Sheppard This book was good, with lots of Todd Sheppard moments I liked that Todd starving near death won t feed on someone who looks like John Sheppard, and John won t let the scientists on Ear First book in the Stargate Atlantis Legacy e series, derivative of the television series Stargate Atlantis, which concluded with lots of loose ends I wanted to know the rest of the story, especially about Todd Guide the ancient Wraith, and his uneasy alliance brotherhood with Colonol John Sheppard This book was good, with lots of Todd Sheppard moments I liked that Todd starving near death won t feed on someone who looks like John Sheppard, and John won t let the scientists on Earth use Todd as a lab rat.It ends on a major cliffhanger, with an essential character captured by the Wraith An entertaining story, but slow to get off the ground The first half is set on Earth, with all the politics of intergalactic policy and governance The writing quality is okay, however, the authors have included too many inner thoughts, memories of TV episode plots, feelings, etc Also, they are creating a thing between Sheppard and Teyla, and ending her affair with Kanaan, Torren s father I d rather not go there Too soapy This book feels quite different from the television series, yet it belongs within the same space, if that makes sense

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers To view it, click here 2.5 starsWhy the sanctification of Elizabeth Weir Elizabeth had been their moral compass, their guiding star, and the expedition had never really recovered from her loss Really Who ever thought that Elizabeth was about as morally bankrupt as they come and with no sense of humor Still, it was not a constant thing being brought upThe general quality of the writing and plotting was decent, though it certainly never captured the feel of the series to me I liked their approach to the Wr 2.5 starsWhy the sanctification of Elizabeth Weir Elizabeth had been their moral compass, their guiding star, and the expedition had never really recovered from her loss Really Who ever thought that Elizabeth was about as morally bankrupt as they come and with no sense of humor Still, it was not a constant thing being brought upThe general quality of the writing and plotting was decent, though it certainly never captured the feel of the series to me I liked their approach to the Wraith, fleshing out their culture and their side of the story, giving us Todd s POV and the introduction of the new villain in uber Wraith Queen Death And sections had a somewhat lyrical, sparse type of writing that was interesting.My main issue was that this story just was not SGA So many characters were out of character John, McKay, even Teyla and Beckett, seemed like people I did not know They did not resemble the characters I had watched for five years Ronon and Woolsey were the closest as were Sam and Jack I just find it difficult to believe that it is that difficult to portray the show and character dynamics.The continuous politics and posturing grew tiresome and distracting The five months spent dealing with the IOA and government officials while the team fractured and faced an uncertain future was not terribly interesting, but once we get back in space and headed for Pegasus the story picks up Sadly that is well over half way into the story I am still very willing to see where they take the story next, so I ll be picking up Stargate Atlantis The Lost SGA 17, Book Two in the Legacy Series.Regardless of whether this story appeals to me of fits my view of the show, I appreciate the authors creativity in envisioning this continuation

    I enjoyed this book The quality is what I generally get in fanfic, which is not a point against this author I think that sproof that the Atlantis fandom has some very good authors So let me start with what I liked I really liked how she developed Todd s character and Wraith society as a whole I thought Queen Death was an idiot, but she was also an interesting character using a technique that other leaders have in the past You burn your current fortification down to force your troops I enjoyed this book The quality is what I generally get in fanfic, which is not a point against this author I think that sproof that the Atlantis fandom has some very good authors So let me start with what I liked I really liked how she developed Todd s character and Wraith society as a whole I thought Queen Death was an idiot, but she was also an interesting character using a technique that other leaders have in the past You burn your current fortification down to force your troops intodangerous territory Yep, been done so I won t call her an idiot, although I will say she s a bigger risk taker than I ever saw in canon Wraith Yeah, I m not ever going to think of this as canon It s just good fanfic that was lucky enough to get the producer s blessing I also like her characterization of Rodney Yes, Jennifer is still around, but Rodney gets to be the bumbling, arrogant Rodney who tries to show that he cares and can t quite manage I really like her Rodney.Now on to what I didn t like Some of the prose could be smoothed out a little when it came to descriptions, particularly early on I see that in most fanfiction, so it didn t bother me and the story was good enough that once I got pulled in the oddly placed phrase didn t detract from the plot A bigger problem for me was the characterization of Teyla This Teyla wastimid and seemed to rely on miscommunication most common in Harlequin romance I like Teyla because she is the sort of woman who comes out and says what she means If she s pissed at Ronon, she says it I imagine that if she was sexually interested in anyone, she would show up at their door and say, I m sexually interested, and that would be the end of the miscommunication I don t like Teyla being turned into somethingfamiliar to romance readers because I like Teyla s alienness So I will keep reading, but I can t give this one an unqualified yes

    6% dnfUnrecognizable characters Bad stupid writing in general Examples There s nothing like wearing a baby as a necktie to make women ovulate when they see you Who s the guy checking out Teyla s butt Sam rolled her eyes You know he s hitting on you, right And that you can punch him in the chops, IOA member or not

    4.5 StarsThis is the sixteenth book in the Stargate Atlantis series and the first book in a six book series that takes place after the end of the final season of the tv series An epic battle was fought with the Wraith and now Atlantis is safely home on earth parked not far outside of San Francisco in the ocean.Things on Earth are at a standstill concerning Atlantis The IOA and the government don t want Atlantis to go back to the Pegasus galaxy They want to retain all her equipment and weapon 4.5 StarsThis is the sixteenth book in the Stargate Atlantis series and the first book in a six book series that takes place after the end of the final season of the tv series An epic battle was fought with the Wraith and now Atlantis is safely home on earth parked not far outside of San Francisco in the ocean.Things on Earth are at a standstill concerning Atlantis The IOA and the government don t want Atlantis to go back to the Pegasus galaxy They want to retain all her equipment and weaponry if such a threat were to ever come to Earth again Then the staff starts to break up Rodney McKay resigns to take a position at Area 51 as does his girlfriend Jennifer Both Teyla and Ronan reluctantly decide to accompany the new star vessel called the George Hammond And John Sheppard is undecided He can t go on the Hammond because he and Col Sam Carter are of such similar rank He fears his only hope is to completely resign from the military But the only place that has ever felt like home has been when he was on Atlantis.That is about as far as I want to go with the description because you know a whole heck of a lothappens in the meantime Everyone is crazy angry at General O Neill which I find humorous and the fact that he is the master of red tape evenfunny That is so not Jack.There are encounters with the people Teyla came from as well as the Genii and of course, the Wraith where a new much younger Queen is in town She embraces the old ways and calls herself Death Catchy, right She s got them all running in circles.I kind of miss Elizabeth Weir because she would be down for all the crap they put Richard Woolsey through trying to get Atlantis back to the Pegasus galaxy The little twist that happens right in there is pretty cool and would have most SGC fans cheering.While Teyla struggles with continuing her relationship with Torren s father, her heart still longs for another While no names are mentioned, my money is on Col John Sheppard because he would be my choice too.The book ends on a pretty good cliffhanger which will lead us into the next book of this six book series called THE LOST.I enjoyed getting to know the Atlantis cast again They are some of my favorite characters of all time I think there are 24 total books in the Stargate Atlantis series and I look forward into diving anew into this spectacular world

    I was so disappointed when Stargate Atlantis got canceled and now there is not much chance that there will be a movie to continue the story Needless to say when I found out there would be books set after the last season I was psyched Much of the first half of the book is spent trying to get Atlantis back to the Pegasus galaxy The rest of the story is spent trying to reconnect with their allies and find out the state of affairs Things aren t looking too good The wraith are mostly unified und I was so disappointed when Stargate Atlantis got canceled and now there is not much chance that there will be a movie to continue the story Needless to say when I found out there would be books set after the last season I was psyched Much of the first half of the book is spent trying to get Atlantis back to the Pegasus galaxy The rest of the story is spent trying to reconnect with their allies and find out the state of affairs Things aren t looking too good The wraith are mostly unified under a new powerful queen intent on finding the way to earth This is the first in a six part series so it ends with a cliff hanger return return I ve read most of the other SGA novels and this is one of the best The characters were spot on From the bickering between Rodney and John, to the machinations of the IOA, to the cleverness of O Neill and Carter it felt like an episode I personally loved the hints of possibility for John and Teyla, sorry all other shippers All of the great secondary characters like Lorne and Radek made appearances, and Todd got some really interesting snippets There was not a lot of action, since it s setting things up for the rest of the story arc, but wow it looks like this story could be fantastic once it gets rolling I can t wait to start the next one

    Homecoming is a strong start to the ongoing Stargate Atlantis Legacy series of novels which will continue the story of the city and it s people after the tv series was cancelled after the fifth season In many ways this novel will have the hardest time of all as many fans were never really pleased with the dealings of the IOA and other government bodies when the interfered with the grand adventures Homecoming had to create a narrative to get Atlantis off of Earth and back to Pegasus with most Homecoming is a strong start to the ongoing Stargate Atlantis Legacy series of novels which will continue the story of the city and it s people after the tv series was cancelled after the fifth season In many ways this novel will have the hardest time of all as many fans were never really pleased with the dealings of the IOA and other government bodies when the interfered with the grand adventures Homecoming had to create a narrative to get Atlantis off of Earth and back to Pegasus with most of the known characters intact and acknowledge that many may not want or could not return and thus introduce new characters into an established mix Jo Graham and Melissa Scott did a wonderful job of getting this series off to a fine start and I m kicking myself I waited so long to read the Stargate Atlantis novels from Fandemonium aka StargateNovels.I m not going into any details of the plot apart from yeah Atlantis returns to Pegasus but come on you all want to know what hoops had to be jumped through and the compromises made with Earth governments salivating and or shuddering at the thought of the tech weaponry sitting off the coast of the USA

    At the end of the Stargate Atlantis run, the city ship of the Ancients was parked off the coast of San Francisco doing no one any good After a great deal of tedious political wrangling, the team flies it back to the Pegasus galaxy, a process that ends in the moderate disaster depicted in the flashforward that begins the novel Thus, the novel is halfway over before anything approaching action occurs The plot will hold zero interest for non fans, since it is 80% continued character developmen At the end of the Stargate Atlantis run, the city ship of the Ancients was parked off the coast of San Francisco doing no one any good After a great deal of tedious political wrangling, the team flies it back to the Pegasus galaxy, a process that ends in the moderate disaster depicted in the flashforward that begins the novel Thus, the novel is halfway over before anything approaching action occurs The plot will hold zero interest for non fans, since it is 80% continued character development, some of it a bit weird what s up with Teyla and Sheppard
