When Atlantis – upon returning to the Pegasus Galaxy from Earth – breaks apart in hyperspace, only John is saved from the debris. The group of Ancients that retrieved him offer him a bargain: Either he helps them make corrections in some universes, where things have gone wrong, or they put him back where he was found. Reluctantly accepting, John embarks on a lonely journey through a multitude of universes until he finally reaches the place he could again call home.
Why You Should Read This:
This one is not for a quicky read before bedtime. It is epic. John is very much like Sam Beckett, jumping from universe to universe (some of which are recognizable fan fiction ‘verses) in an effort to make sure things happen the way the Ancient woman who is his controller tells him they must happen. He sees thousands of universes, each one a little or a lot different from he one he came from. Sometimes the universes are strange: everyone is blue-skinned, or Rodney is a woman, or John is a pregnant man. Sometimes the universes are very much like the one he knew. Through it all he knows the Ancients have an ulterior motive, but he doesn’t know what it is.
And over time he realizes two overarching truths: He is in love with Rodney McKay and he wants to find a home.
