Reviews - What do customers think about Stargate Atlantis: Entanglement: SGA--6 (Stargate Atlantis)?
Would make a fantastic 2-part episode or movie Aug 19, 2008
The back of the book says, "When Dr. Rodney McKay unlocks an Ancient mystery on a distant moon, he discovers a terrifying threat to the Pegasus galaxy. Determined to disable the device before it's discovered by the Wraith, Colonel John Sheppard and his team navigate the treacherous ruins of an Ancient outpost. But attempts to destroy the technology are complicated by the arrival of a stranger - a stranger who can't be trusted, a stranger who needs the Ancient device to return home. Cut off from backup, under attack from the Wraith, and with the future of the universe hanging in the balance, Sheppard's team must put aside their doubts and step into the unknown. However, when your mortal enemy is your only ally, betrayal is just a heartbeat away..."
This is the first Atlantis book I've read because I prefer SG-1 over Atlantis, but this was on my birthday wishlist anyway. This book was actually excellantly written and pretty exciting. The story would make a fantastic two-part episode or a direct-to-dvd movie. The plot twists are of the worst-case scenario variety, but they're not overdone or ridiculous. I thought the action pacing was good, the characters were well written and accurate in mannerism and speech. This was a very enjoyable book. This story takes place sometime recently after Atlantis has deceived the Wraith into thinking the city has been destroyed. The plot centers around a quantum mirror and an alternate reality where the wraith species consider feeding on sentient species a crime worthy of death. Characters from the show in the book include: John Sheppard, Teyla, Ronon, McKay, Zalenka, Carson Beckett, Major Lorne, Elizabeth Weir, Colonel Caldwell, Hermiod, Dr. Novak, and Miko Kusanagi. Well worth reading and highly recommended.
Entanglement Feb 25, 2008
This book was very good. It was hard to put it down and I didn't want it to end.
Excellent Nov 27, 2007
It's very rare that a tie-in novel is as good as the show is, much less surpasses it, but this definitely does it. Fantastic characterization, a solid, interesting plot that works *with* the characters, and wonderfully written. I cannot recommend this enough to anyone who is a fan of Stargate at all.
taking an idea a little far Aug 21, 2007
When I read this one I was hoping for different story line then the issue with another quantum mirror showing up since they took that aspect and idea a little too far in SG-1 over the last few years and use something else. But it was nice to have the main characters in this one this time around. But rather then messing with the time-line for each story they should have put this one as number 4 rather than number 6. I thought it was a good story either way.
More good stuff from Fandemonium Aug 6, 2007
I read this in one sitting! Needless to say, it moves along like gangbusters. The story makes good use of the "Quantum Mirror" concept established in an earlier SG-1 episode, with the team encountering a lost scientist from another reality and ending up traveling to her universe. I also liked the way the story was planted at a specific point in the show's continuity, right after Ford was lost and Ronon was just getting started fitting into the team. The author did a good job of capturing the "voices" of the various characters, even the minor supporting players like Major Lorne. I will definitely be looking for more novels by Martha Wells.
