Another un-interesting novel of stargate atlantis. After leaving a void when the show was cancelled I had to read the books belonging to this series. Unfortunately they are not that good because the main characters don't behave equally in each novel. If one portrays wrongly Mckay others leave Teyla and Ronon as simple sidekicks of Sheppard. Even their relationships are kind of wrong. Sheppard loves, in his own way, Mckay but some books its seems he hates him. 

This novel depicts the SGA in a world that is free of wraiths for some time but at the same time that benevolent dictator kidnaps people at random and after some time released them with some illness. Most of the first half of the novel it's like the prime directive of startrek that says that they should avoid messing with an environment they visit. Strangely in the episodes rarely this comes up. Well after Teyla and Ronon become held captive the rest of the team ignores the directive and move forward to help them. The revelation was great and easily the only good part of the novel. 

There was several typos on this novel mainly with the Ronon name. 

Unfortunately the void remains and even not enjoying almost any novel I shall read the next one... with low expectations.... 5.5 out 10
