"Entanglement" - Stargate Atlantis book review

"Entanglement" by Martha Wells is a Stargate Atlantis book. This is the first Atlantis book I've read because I prefer SG-1 over Atlantis, but this was on my birthday wishlist anyway. This book was actually excellantly written and pretty exciting. The story would make a fantastic two-part episode or a direct-to-dvd movie. The plot twists are of the worst-case scenario variety, but they're not overdone. I thought the action pacing was good, the characters were well written and accurate in mannerism and speech. This was a very enjoyable book. The plot centers around a quantum mirror and an alternate reality where the wraith species consider feeding on sentient species a crime worthy of death. Characters from the show in the book include: John Sheppard, Teyla, Ronon, McKay, Zalenka, Carson Beckett, Major Lorne, Elizabeth Weir, Colonel Caldwell, Hermiod, Dr. Novak, and Miko Kusanagi. Well worth reading and highly recommended.
