Stargate Atlantis: Homecoming

Stargate Atlantis: Homecoming
by Jo Graham and Melissa Scott

For fans of the television series Stargate Atlantis, the end of the series after five seasons seemed abrupt and premature, and although the final episode brought a limited sense of closure, most fans thought that there were still new stories to be told. Homecoming is the first in a series of six novels set after the events of that series finale episode, that carry the SGA characters' stories forward into the future. Featuring some crossover appearances by characters from the original Stargate SG-1 series, these novels send the Atlantis station back to the Pegasus galaxy, with all of the well-known and beloved crew members aboard -- Col. John Shephard, Dr. Rodney McKay, Zelenka, Ronan, Teyla, Richard Woolsey, etc. The Wraith continue to be a major threat, including sometimes ally "Todd". For anyone who loved the series Stargate Atlantis, these writers capture the tone and voices of the characters perfectly, and this book feels like slipping into a delayed sixth season. For those unfamiliar with the series, I recommend viewing the five seasons of the show before starting these novels. [If you enjoy this, you may also wish to try The Lost, the second book in this projected six-book series.] -- recommended by Scott C. - Bennett Martin Public Library
