This week I’m bringing you reviews of 7 books linked with the Stargate TV series.
I fell in love with the series back in 1994 when hubby and I were in New York. We decided to go to the movies one afternoon, not having heard of any of the films on offer, we randomly chose the fist original Stargate Movie, when the series eventually aired in the UK we couldn’t wait to watch and I went on to get all the season box-sets and films so that I could watch them over and over.
With companion books to the series now available, I can now indulge in more from my favourite TV characters. I originally bought my first companion books for my hubby, but couldn’t resist reading them myself, even if it did take a year to get through my TBR pile before I could reach them, perhaps the wait was meant to be.
I recently reviewed Sunrise, posting my review and even making a YouTube video about the book which I had enjoyed so much, that when Stargate Novels contacted me about reviewing some more of their books, I jumped at the chance, this week will be a mix of books jumping all around the Stargate Seasons, I hope you enjoy them as much as I did reading them.

The Furies- Atlantic is book #4 in the Legacy series of companion book to the TV series Stargate Atlantis. The Legacy series continues where the TV series finished.
In this book the team from Atlantis are still trying to rescue Rodney who has been captured by the Wraith and transformed into one of their own whom they have named Quicksilver. He has been commanded to interface a ZPM power device into one of Queen Death’s hive ships. Inside his mind Rodney’s memories stir and he remembers who he really is.
Back on Earth Wolsey is being questioned by the IOA over previous events in Atlantis. He could lose his job unless General O’Neill can come up with a good plan. There are more concerns when Atlantis goes off grid for 19 days and SG-1 are assembled and ready for a rescue mission if necessary.
The Wraith known as Todd proposes working with Dr Keller on a new retrovirus, a drug which would stop humans dying when fed upon by the Wraith. It is a proposal which causes many ethical arguments.
When Queen Death demands a face to face with Steelflower, Queen of Todd’s ship, Teyla dons her Wraith disguise and the team make a plan for one final attempt to rescue Rodney.
There were a few places in this book where the story slowed, particularly with several story-telling episodes and people reminiscing. However the build up to the ending of this book was very exciting and I am eager to know how it all pans out in the next book.

One of the reasons I love Stargate is the great dialogue. Here is a quote from Stargate SG-1 Paradise Lost
Colonel Jack O’Neill: You know, Harry, it’s not that I can’t believe you lied to me again. It’s that you
lied to me *again*!
We are ending this post with a discussion topic…If you could meet any of the Aliens encounters in any of the TV series who would they be and why?
My answer would be the Asgard, I think they could teach me a thing or two and a bit of their advanced alien technology might be useful in the blogging world.
Which Aliens would you like to meet and why?
