Summary

From the multi-award winning Lee R Jackson. ------------------------------------------------------------ Mulligan gasped, sprawling on the floor. His face and hands, visible from his suit, quickly reddened and blistered. His close fitting outfit already displayed scorching. Keeray pretended to intently study her device, casually speaking, “That was a low setting. I'm guessing you didn’t find that exposure too comfortable.” She peered at him over the top of the rod. “Please note there are other very painful things I can do to you. So it would be much nicer for you to answer my little questions. Now, I'll repeat them. Why and how did you break into Medical and why did you choose Mahisa?” ------------------------------------------------------------ Mahisa is a woman who has her sight restored in a hospital by a ruthless surgeon but, whilst there, she unexpectedly becomes pregnant. Mahisa lives in a sealed city shaped by paranoia from previous chemical wars. She gets a good job but is taken ill with a miscarriage. Then a mysterious woman tells Mahisa her healthy child was taken from her body. So she has to steal back her baby boy. Mahisa also has to avoid the surgeon and a psychopathic cat-human Head of Security. In addition, Mahisa has to help people escape the city; but she must search for her child again after she lost him due to an experimental time machine. Plus Mahisa has to save the city from a race of psychopathic cat-humans. In the midst of all that, she has to shine in her job. ------------------------------------------------------------ This book is comparable to writings by Stephen King and Iain Banks.

    "Know, oh prince, that between the years when the oceans drank Atlantis and the gleaming cities, and the years of the rise of the Sons of Aryas, there was an Age undreamed of, when shining kingdoms lay spread across the world like blue mantles beneath the stars—Nemedia, Ophir, Brythunia, Hyperborea, Zamora with its dark-haired women and towers of spider-haunted mystery, Zingara with its chivalry, Koth that bordered on the pastoral lands of Shem, Stygia with its shadow-guarded tombs, Hyrkania whose riders wore steel and silk and gold. But the proudest kingdom of the world was Aquilonia, reigning supreme in the dreaming west. Hither came Conan, the Cimmerian, black-haired, sullen- eyed,sword in hand, a thief, a reaver, a slayer, with gigantic melancholies and gigantic mirth, to tread the jeweled thrones of the Earth under his sandalled feet."

    End game 
    The battle lines are drawn. Queen Death is mustering her fleet. But who will stand against her? 
    As conflicts and betrayal threaten to shatter Atlantis's fragile alliances with Guide's Wraith and the Genii, humanity's only hope of survival rests on the fate of an Ancient device - a weapon too terrible to use but too powerful to cast aside. A weapon capable of exterminating every Wraith in the galaxy, and with them every human carrying Wraith DNA... 
    With Queen Death's fleet fast approaching, Colonel Sheppard and his team must make their final choice. In the sixth and concluding installment of the STARGATE ATLANTIS Legacy series, the future of Atlantis will be decided - and more than one of her crew will be called upon to sacrifice everything in the fight for her survival...The Inheritors 
    "So let's get this done," John said. 
    "Well, I'll need the device before I can destroy it," Sam said. "If you'll go get it from wherever you hid it..." 
    "You may as well come with me," John said, after a moment's hesitation that he decided wasn't entirely rational. "I'd rather not handle the weird Ancient device we don't understand any more than I have to. You don't have the ATA gene, so you're less likely to destroy all the Wraith in the galaxy by accident." 
    Sam followed him up a transport chamber and several sets of stairs to the catwalks where he usually went running with Ronon. Above them, a tangled grid of struts and roof supports extended up into the shadows. 
    "It's up there," John said. He scrambled up onto the rail of the catwalk, and then hauled himself up the jungle gym of struts and poles until he could reach the ledge where he'd stashed the weapon in between a spare Wraith stunner and a box of C4. 
    The stunner and the C4 were both still there, still securely duct taped to the ledge. In between them, the web of duct tape had been slit neatly with a knife. 
    "Damn it!" 
    "What?" Sam called from the catwalk below. 
    "The weapon's gone," John said. "Somebody got here first."
