Well, after reading the reviews I was really excited about this book. I did pay quite a bit for it, never did that for a book before, but I love the tv show and the reviews on the book were excellent. I have to say I am somewhat disappointed with the story. I had a hard time getting into it, and following along.
Heres a glimpse of the storyline: Carson releases an ancient that was found in a pod on the bottom of the Lantean ocean. The ancient, consumed by grief, releases a machine which then drills itself to the core of the planet. Once there it starts to completely change the planet itself (basically resetting everything to 0)releasing nanites that consume and break apart the entire environment. The nanites goal will then turn to eliminating Atlantis, travel through the stargate, and reset the rest of the pegasus galaxy back to 0, pre-creation. Our favorite atlantis team then has to find a way to stop the machine from destroying everything, of course, putting their own lives on the line.
The whole story line just didn't interest me, I found myself saying who cares or whats the point, at certain parts of the story. However, I did enjoy how the characters were described, we do gain some glimpses into the soul of Rodney and John, in other words what makes them tick, but it wasn't enough to make the story worth while.
