Book Description

30 Aug 2010 Stargate Atlantis (Book 13)
Ronon Dex is a mystery. His past is a closed book and he likes it that way. But when the Atlantis team trigger a trap that leaves them stranded on a hostile world, only Ronon's past can save them - if it doesn't kill them first. As the gripping tale unfolds, we return to Ronon's earliest days as a Runner and meet the charismatic leader who transformed him into a hunter of Wraith. But grief and rage can change the best of men and it soon becomes clear that those Ronon once considered brothers-in-arms are now on the hunt - and that the Atlantis team are their prey. Unless Ronon can out hunt the hunters, Colonel Sheppard's team will fall victim to the vengeance of the V'rdai.

2.0 out of 5 stars Hunt and Run 23 Aug 2010
By Liz
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This book is almost exclusively Ronon based. The rest of the team and Atlantis barely feature and I got the impression they were there to simply provide a reason for this book. If you are a Ronon fan then you will probably enjoy it more but don't expect much in the way of team dynamics.
On the positive side there is plenty of action and the book is easy to read. If you are interested in possible senarios for Ronon's back story then this is the book for you.
On the negative side I found several discrepancies with canon -all the more annoying because they were not even important to the story - it gave me the impression that the author had never seen the series.
Certainly not one of my favorites.

4.0 out of 5 stars Ronon Rocks! 16 May 2011
By Sue
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This is a must-have book for anyone who has ever wondered about Ronon Dex's background.
The writer describes Ronon's first two years as a Runner, and quite a lot of secrets about Ronon are finally revealed. Sheppard,Teyla and Rodney also feature, but as more minor characters.
This book is action-packed and the characters are well fleshed out. I could not put it down and was annoyed I had to go to bed to sleep in between devouring the pages.
I would wholeheartedly recommend this book to all fans of Ronon.

4.0 out of 5 stars Ronon!!! 19 July 2010
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
Finally a story based on Ronon!! It was good and ; however not as funny as some of the other books . But quite serious and action packed. I only wish it had been a bit longer.
The books tell a lot about Ronon's life before Atlantis and b/4 i say anymore you have to get it to find out whta h's life was like!!
Just hope there's more Ronon stories out there...sigh.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing... 19 July 2010
By Lisa - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
I was very excited to see a Stargate Atlantis novel focusing on the character of Ronon Dex and his early days as a Runner--until I actually read the book. This was not the story I was expecting to read.

(Beware Spoilers)

The Wraith ultimately take a backseat in this story where they should be real major players. They show up two or three times and are easily bested by Ronon and his new Runner buddies making them feel like cartoon villains instead of actual, real threats. Also, the major plot point of these Runners banding together is so contrived and full of holes (why not cut the transmitters out and be done with it?) that it was hard to take seriously. And I found myself wondering if the author actually watched the key Ronon episodes before writing this book because there were some glaring continuity errors. The biggest being that, in this story, Ronon's Wraith tracking implant is placed in his *lower* back where, in the series, it had been implanted in his *upper* back near his neck.

And the author had a great love of exclamation points!

Also, Todd the Wraith is featured on the cover and this could mislead the reader to believe that Todd plays a part in this book. He doesn't. I'm sure Todd is there to represent the Wraith in general but the cover designer should have chosen a more generic Wraith image instead of a character that played a big part in the series.

In the end, this was missed opportunity to fill in the blanks of Ronon's past with a raucus Man vs. Wraith tale. Disappointing.

3.0 out of 5 stars Hunt and Run: SGA Novel 5 Sep 2010
By Wisconsin Rocks - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
I waited anxiously for this book, unfortunately, it did not live up to my expectations. The writing was fine and the storyline was even decent (the only reason I gave it a 3), however, my main disappointment was in the fact that the author did not do his homework related to the series prior to writing this novel. You would think that prior to writing in this genre..an author would immerse themselves in watching the episodes to get a true picture of the characters. He missed the mark on several counts.

First, the character of Rodney McKay was poorly written. If you really watch the series you learn quite early that while Dr. McKay can be irritating, and is sort of an egomaniac...he is NOT a coward. I admit he is not the bravest person on the series, but when push comes to shove..he steps up to the plate. The author actually describes him as a coward early in the book. In addition, there is always banter between McKay and Sheppard, and while there was some of that, it sort of missed the mark for me, and as this novel takes place at least 5 years in..(Mr Woolsey is in charge) true fans know that Sheppard, McKay, Ronan and Teyla may argue and gritch but they are actually very close friends.
Second, Ronan's character back-story was poor. As mentioned in a previous reveiw, the tracking device is not in the lower back, it is in the upper back where a runner is unable to reach it. Another serious flaw...Ronan stated in the episode "The Shrine" that he was taught to hunt and track by his grandfather by age 6. In this book...he states he is not a hunter and is taught to hunt and track by another runner...seriously...could this guy not have watched the series? Why would you write a book about something you don't research..and if you are not a fan..why would you want to write a SGA novel...there are too many fans who know the episodes by heart that will pick you to pieces.
I did finish the novel, but admit that at one point I was so frustrated I almost quit. After finishing it, I was able to put things in perspective and overall, the story was imaginative...but true fans will find the inconsistencies frustrating and since SGA was canceled, we are all looking to get our SGA fix...and this was like eating sugar free candy when you are craving sugar.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hunt and Run 15 Aug 2010
By W6C - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
I was pleasantly surprised with this novel. Though it focuses mainly on Ronon recounting his years as a Runner to Dr. Rodney McKay it is packed with action, suspense and intrigue. I found myself hurriedly turning the pages, instead of tossing the book aside after the first three chapters as I did with a couple of previous SGA titles that weren't worth the read. This one is... even if Ronon isn't your favorite character, it's incredibly interesting and it does include the other three team members, it's not strictly Ronon-only. I'm glad I took the chance and read it.
I don't feel my time or money was wasted and that's always a plus.

3.0 out of 5 stars An improbable yet quite enjoyable Ronon backstory... 28 Sep 2010
By Rachel Hyland - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Okay, first things first with this book: pretend it's not about STARGATE ATLANTIS. In fact, forget any established character interaction or continuity, forget the traits you most identify with certain people, forget little detals like where a Runner's tracking device is supposed to be located. Forget all of that, and you actually have a pretty decent tale of what it is to build a military unit, and a family, from disparate personalities all cast adrift by the vagaries of war.

Of the character failings: Rodney is more annoying and less respected than he should be (this takes place in Season 5; Rodney's practically beloved by this point); Sheppard uses way too many exclamation! points! (though he has his moments of the funny); and Teyla is all but a nonentity. But the worst characterisation problem is that of our main character.

Are we really to believe that the taciturn Ronon would EVER give such a vivid and detailed account of his time with this alleged band of Runners called the V'rdai? And to Rodney, no less? No. His recounting would have gone a little more like this: "There was this guy Nekai. Taught me stuff. I joined his squad. Dude went crazy. I left." Admittedly, that wouldn't have taken up the rquisite word count -- which is why the method of this story was questionable from the outset. Anyone who was familiar with Ronon (as Rosenberg, one assumes, is not) would never have had him be the main storyteller. The idea of him sitting there, sharing a long and complex campfire tale about his hidden past, all but beggars the imagination.

However, the backstory part of the novel -- as long as you pretend it's not our Ronon's backstory -- is a good read, fun and fast-paced. Guerilla warfare and the dynamics of a team; the examination of what fear and loss can do to soldiers; the us-against-them mentality and the levels of control under which we all let ourselves languish... that part is great. Yes, the ending is questionable (setting up for a sequel?), and there is some heavy-handed foreshadowing (did you know Setien loves fruit? Oh, how Setien loves fruit! I hope Setien's love of fruit doesn't get us into trouble someday!), but all in all, HUNT AND RUN is a pretty well-written and nicely rounded military sci-fi adventure.

It's just not a proper ATLANTIS adventure.

Also: what the hell is Todd doing on the cover?

4.0 out of 5 stars Good solid read 12 Oct 2010
By Michael Seiber - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
I was very excited when I saw a book about how Ronan became a runner and enjoyed this book a lot. It got a bit slow at times in the middle on filling in his back ground but picks back up as the book moves along to its climax. Very entertaining.
