This review is coming out of order because I just loved it so much! Shocking I know, Neko isn’t keeping up with her reviews… Ignore that and enjoy!
Title: SGA: Exogenesis
Author: Sonny Whitelaw & Elizabeth Christensen
Synopsis: The eye of the beholder…
When Dr. Carson Beckett disturbs the rest of two longdead Ancients, he unleashes devastating consequences of global proportions.
With the very existence of Lantea at risk, Colonel John Sheppard leads his team on a desperate search for the long lost Ancient device that could save Atlantis. While Teyla Emmagan and Dr. Elizabeth Weir battle the ecological meltdown consuming their world, Colonel Sheppard, Dr. Rodney McKay and Dr. Zelenka travel to a world created by the Ancients themselves. There they discover a human experiment that could mean their salvation…
But the truth is never as simple as it seems, and the team’s prejudices lead them to make a fatal error — an error that could slaughter thousands, including their own Dr. McKay.
My Thoughts: The story was good, but what really made me love this particular TV Tie-In was how accurate the characters were! Other books have fallen short in this was but this could have been an episode they were so spot on! The chemistry in the main characters, Sheppard’s need to save those left behind, Teyla’s desire to be with her people warring with her own core beliefs, Rodney’s desire to keep everyone out, Ronon being Ronon (but standing beside his friends as always), Elizabeth fighting her head and her heart, Caldwell asserting his dominance, Becket unable to forgive himself, even Zelenka was his usual quiet, supportive self! The humor was present, the bickering, the pop culture references, everything a fan of the series knows and loves was in this book! If you ever watched the show I highly recommend you pick up a copy of Exogenesis!
Have any of you guys read this one? What did you think?
