TEASER:

THE CITY shook, but it was not as bad as before. Zelenka could keep his feet easily enough, hanging on to the edge of the console.
The cameras fogged, vapor streaming past. A high cloud layer? Possibly. Probably. All systems were still green. The ZPMs’ power level was ticking downward, but not quickly. Fifteen per cent…fourteen per cent.
Thrusters fired again, tilting the city slightly, increasing the drag. The shield pulled more power to compensate. And the city slowed.
Ice. The cameras showed ice below, thousands of feet down to the north polar ice cap. They were wrapping around the world in a high polar sweep, bleeding speed as they went. Ice. Nothing but ice. Surely they would start seeing water now. He didn’t know how high they were. It all looked the same, sixty thousand feet or thirty thousand.
“You need to course correct,” Rodney said.
Mountains. Glaciated mountains. The planet’s largest landmass was embedded beneath the polar ice cap. Dark peaks streaked with snow. Surely they were too low. Surely…

    Not the SGA I remember

    New novels that promised to continue the story of Stargate:Atlantis was welcome news but alas, this first book in the series was a huge disappointment. I was looking for an exciting adventure in the same vein as the show. What I got was a thinly disguised soap opera with tortured prose and overly long sections of exposition that slowed the pace to a crawl. Everyone seemed just a little off to the extent that I was wondering at times if this was meant to be an alternate universe. From giving the Wraith names that sound very new age and completely revamping parts of their societal organization to the never ending saga of John/Teyla/Kanaan, there wasn't much that I liked. The action picked up in the last third of the book, but by then I was wondering if these authors had ever watched an entire episode of the show. The authors clearly have an agenda and if you like the John/Teyla pairing, you will be happy and probably won't mind that they had to completely ignore canon to get Kanaan out of the way. All other ship preferences and those who prefer that the romance be left out of SciFi will be disappointed. They even managed to take away the fun of the John/Rodney bromance.

    Very slow first 1/2

    The first 1/2 of the book was extremely slow, too much introspection and it seemed like lots of similies and metaphors during the introspection. I couldn't relate to Teyla's constant emotions, she didn't seem as 'centered'. However, the second 1/2 of the book picked up and was great. Although I know there were 2 authors, it seemed like one wrote each 1/2. If you can get through to chapter 12, it becomes a pretty good book. I would have given it 2 stars for chapters 1-11, and 4 for 12 till end of book (not a big cliffhanger fan, don't like having to buy/read another book to finish a story). Lots of action in the second 1/2, which I like in my sci-fi. Very little cussing (which is always a plus to me, I don't like hearing it, nor reading it).

    Great continuation of the TV series. This book is similar to what the first episode of a new season would be, setting up a lot of plots that will continue through he 6 book series.

    I have read the entire series, and it is well wort the read - a great sixth season to the show. If you likes and miss SGA, then by all means, give this series a read.
