She does an excellent job of creating atmosphere. The first half of the book reads like a suspense novel, with the tension growing as the team explores an abandoned Atlantean outpost. When they find an unexpected survivor, things seem to be explained . . . until everything starts to go wrong. It isn't a very long novel, but the plot is so well-paced that you don't notice the length, or lack thereof.
The characterizations are quite good. The dialogue, the actions and interactions of the characters, all of it is true to the show. She also does a good job with descriptions (lending to the atmosphere). I thoroughly enjoyed this book. If given the chance, I will certainly read all of this author's Stargate novels, and I intend to look into her other books as well.
After reading it twice, I can say that the fact this book is the shortest is because Martha Wells keeps the story moving along at a pace reasonably consistent with the actual show. Reliquary contains none of the reams of extraneous, inconsequential detail that are so common in the other Atlantis books (even the decent ones) but explains the plot and setting well.
I found the premise was plausible and well-executed within the boundaries of the show's universe. The plot is consistent across chapters, usually changing locations only when necessary and generally to follow the characters as they move. Since there are only two locations and things follow logically from each other, keeping track of events is not difficult. My Atlantis books end up terribly dog-eared from having to flip back and forth, however the corners of this one are still flat.
Most importantly, the characterization was consistent with the show itself. The dialogue, description, and interaction fit quite nicely with Season 1 and the author makes use of nearly the entire cast without stretching too much or placing people in situations where they shouldn't be. Characters were obviously written by someone who had watched the show and for people who have watched the show. Much of the book's dialogue was of such a caliber that it could have come from the show's own writers and could be read by the actors without difficulty.
While Season 2's "Conversion" did touch on the same overall premise of infection and transformation, the specifics of the book are original and the writing is good enough to make it an enjoyable read. Reliquary doesn't feel like a retread. Instead, I felt like I was reading a novelization of a non-arc episode that would have made for good watching. Unlike most of the other SGA novels, I am quite careful about who I lend this one out to. Overall, I was impressed and it's a shame she hasn't written more Atlantis books after Entanglement.
