Almost four stars but not really, though I will bump it up to four. It was definitely better than Swallow's "Nightfall" - it ran more smoothly, there was a very logical process going from point A to point B, the characters were rather true to themselves and the idea itself was awesome (horror and scifi in one). Also, I love stories that take place in Atlantis because the show itself took precious little time to explore the city which was a shame. And then there was the Apollo and it was nice to see its crew in action, again something that we didn't really see on the show.

But there were two things that quite didn't click for me:
a) All the technical jargon. Sometimes dumbing it down serves the story better. Some parts were a bit hard to follow for someone without a background in physics.
b) Sam Carter was without any doubt the main character of the whole story. John and Rodney were reduced to supporting characters, Teyla had one big scene and Ronon was background material (even the author's original characters had bigger parts). I missed the team terribly, the interaction between the main four: John, Rodney, Teyla and Ronon.

To sum it up, a very good, action-filled tie-in. But I miss the female touch of the previous books, the focus on the relationships between the characters.

When i got this book, I expected a good tie-in. Everything I've heard is praise. Now, however, i look back, and wonder if we read the same book. first, the positive points: it had good action, and the storytelling was acceptable. It wasn't subdued and drawn out. That's about the most I can say for that. what was wrong with it? For starters, the plot holes are immense. The purpose behind Angelus' gold mask is never revealed, never even touched on later in the story. The whispering on the radios is never explicitly revealed, though I could hazard some guesses as to it's function. Another point is why the expedition didn't check the Atlantis database for an ancient named Angelus. If he wasn't there, he simply didn't exist. The explanation for why the replicators would try this is lacking. Numbers were never the problem of the replicators. they could generate however many other personalities they needed, and simply build new bodies for those they lost. they would never need to do something like this. Colonel Ellis is another thing. Throughout his time on the show, he displayed a manifold dislike of McKay. he never showed any respect for him, at one point challenging his manhood. He would think of mcKay as a tool before he thought of him as a respectable person. Carter and several other members of the expedition also showed an inability to grasp the obvious, or even stay in character for more than a few paragraphs. The Damage done to the city is also over the top. of course, the damage done to the city has been great over the years, but nothing like what was displayed here. If this author publishes another stargate novel, I'll probably buy it just for the sake of reading a stargate novel, but not for the story.

This left me disappointed and angry and going WTF??? Because it's not what it's advertised to be, i.e., a novel about Stargate: Atlantis. At least, this isn't Atlantis as the show appeared on TV. As an original science fiction novel, it might have been acceptable, although not to *me*, because the plot involves an alien entity that grows (and grows, and grows) by absorbing and mutating human flesh, a process which involves a lot of blood and viscera and bodily fluids and "gobbets of flesh", and oozing and swelling and...well, suffice it to say that the whole thing was more Lovecraft than Stargate, and not at all what I expected from Stargate: Atlantis.

Also, my two favorite characters, McKay and Sheppard, were relegated to bit parts, and had very little interaction when they did appear. The story was told mostly from the alternating viewpoints of Samantha Carter and Colonel Ellis of the Apollo.

And all of it in that oddly-sized font used in all of the Fandemonium Stargate novels, which is just a little too small. Or maybe the lines are spaced a little too closely together. Whatever. Maybe some of their books are worth getting eyestrain over; it's not this one.

I just finished this book last night. I don't think there are any big spoilers in this review.

The story was interesting, but wasn't really "stargate-like" to me. Change the names of the key player and the city, and you have any other sci-fi/horror book off the shelf.

A golden mask is focused on early in the book and made to seem as a very important item, and then never mentioned again.
A highly technical stranger is in Atlantis that is not trusted, yet Carter sends Sheppard and McKay off on a mission that could have been handled by just about anyone else?
At one point the book gives a view of the replicators disgust for non-replicator kind, yet they create the protagonist in this storyline?

Atlantis is portrayed to be damaged almost to the point of being condemned, yet everyone acts like 2-3 weeks and it'll be as is nothing ever happened to the city.
Where do they get the supplies to rebuild what was apparently at least a quarter of the city. A city made from some special kind of metal and embedded with all sorts of ancients technology. Not really believable.

Ronon Dex. Based on the other reviews, I'm the only one who was really bugged that the author referred to Ronon as "Dex" through-out the whole book.
At first, I figured, "Okay.. he's using everyone's last names, but c'mon, he's always called Ronon in the show", and then he calls Teyla... Teyla...
Every time I read something like "Dex said this" or "she could hear Dex" I wanted to cross out Dex and write in Ronon.

What I did like, Dr. Radek Zelenka had a good appearance in this book, I always wanted to see him come out of McKay's shadow a bit.
Also, like I said earlier, the story was interesting.

I've read worse.

Tony!
