Not to seem too picky (and that is what comes of being an editor and reading just about anything), but the book has a higher-than-average level of errors in grammar, usage, and spelling. I point those errors out only to offer helpful feedback, not to be harsh or judgmental. ("I don't do it to be popular, Niles.") They are jarringly distracting and take away from the pleasure of immersing oneself in the story.
And I realize this is not a mistake, per se, but the prevalence of British idioms also distracts. Often I would encounter words I didn't recognize, such as "rota," and my Kindle dictionary would supply a definition that began with "chiefly Brit." The syntax also is distinctly British, what with "different to" instead of "different from" and the like. Having Sam Carter speak in UK English isn't true to her character, for instance. Again, those aren't errors; they're simple differences in dialect. Besides, our characters (for the most part) spoke U.S. English in the shows, in accordance with their own backgrounds. With the U.S.–Canadian origins of the Stargate franchise, though, I wonder why the book wasn't edited to use the idiomatic standards of the TV show. (I understand that Fandemonium is a British outfit.)
Only because I know the characters so well from the TV series was I able to mentally adjust and flesh out what the characters in the book were trying to be. Nevertheless, I'm glad that I read the book, if for no other reason than to have finished the trilogy. The headline of this review does indeed reflect my feelings (and, frankly, any headline is more interesting than just specifying the number of stars). I think the story has potential for going further, but I don't know whether that's the plan. The story nicely incorporates aspects of Atlantis, and without question the plot is fun.
I hadn't figured out the endings of the first 2 books until the last few pages, which I loved, as I dislike when I can figure out what happens in a book before I'm even half way through. After the 2nd book, I was fairly certain (smugly so, I have to admit) I had figured out how it had to end, but the authors took me by surprise. I had honestly not given the way they brought about the resolution, a single thought. Kudos to them on that.
If you haven't read this trilogy, do so! You will not be disappointed. I hope Sally and Lauren team up again, as they seem to work really well together.
Instead of trying to change things in the past, they could have just went to the past and stayed there after their past selves went to the future. And Sam is definitely intelligent enough to know that, so it kinda ruined the plot for me...
