This review is from: The Twelve (Hardcover)
I loved The Passage from the opening chapter, instantly dragged into the story, loved the characters and looked forward to the next installment. I was, however, a little disappointed with this book, initially. It takes a different route to the one the reader is expecting after the ending in The Passage, and we are instead in time periods already dealt with, focusing on new characters or ones only fleetingly met before, while existing characters have moved on in our absence. But, stick with it. This book requires you to trust the author and keep reading, as it will all start to come together. By the end I was as just as hooked as before and look forward to the final book.

I, like other fans, was disappointed when the possibility of more Stargate Atlantis vanished, however these books have more than compensated for that. The authors are not only brilliant writers, but as fans of the show themselves wrote true to the characters we all knew and loved. There are benefits to the books over the series as well, we get much more exploration of the characters personality and motivations, the ethics of decisions made and the Wraith finally get fleshed out.

It's by no means perfect, this final installment at times feels rushed, certain characters from the original Stargate make unnecessary cameo appearances and the Wraith are perhaps overlooked in the conclusion, but it leaves the path clear for further stories and this is something I hope will happen.
