Highlights

Quote

He had helped David save Kate from Dorian Sloane and Ares in the final hours of the Atlantis Plague, but David still had mixed feelings about Janus.

Milo rushed to pick up Kate's feet, and David gripped under her armpits, straining with every last ounce of strength to lift her onto the table.

The ship shuddered, throwing David across the room into the bulkhead, Kate landing on top of him.

Quote

Kate was reviewing the results of a full ship diagnostic when Paul and Mary entered the conference room wearing the dry clothes she had provided.

Quote

Kate explained that the Atlantean homeworld had fallen fifty thousand years ago, and the sole survivors of the war had sought refuge here on Earth, under the protection of the beacon, where their enemy couldn't find them.

Quote

The first time, David had resurrected in Antarctica, directly across from Dorian, thanks to David's Atlantis Gene, which Kate had given him.

Quote

They reformed their human pyramid, this time hoisting the team out: Milo first, then Mary, Kate, Paul, and Sonja, who instructed the others to hold her while she gripped the straps of three backpacks and reached them down to David.

Quote

"You know, the Hail Mary pass in the fourth quarter. That's where we are, Kate. We both know it. You said this beacon is connected to countless quantum buoys. To me, we only have one play: we send our SOS. Say... I don't know, 'our world is under attack from a superior alien occupying force.'"

Quote

When the group was assembled in the large communications room at the back of the beacon, Kate said, "I may have a solution."

Quote

Sonja ran through the portal, then David threw Kate's arm off, stepped through, and Kate rushed after him, leaving Mary and Paul standing there, staring, both their mouths hanging open.

Quote

Kate and David followed him back to the portal area, where the others stood, their backs to them, staring through the small window.

Quote

Paul, Mary, Milo, and Sonja waited, but he looked only at Kate, whose expression changed from dread to confusion as she tried to read him.

Quote

The moment Kate stepped into the third and final beacon Janus had transmitted memories to, she knew they were in trouble.

Quote

Kate led Milo out of the bridge, and although the teenager didn't protest further, she could tell he dreaded what might result from Kate's trip into the giant yellow vat similar to the one he and David had found her in several days ago.

Quote

Isis' death on the world outside thousands of years ago had felt real, and it had done damage, Kate knew it instinctively.

Quote

"Let me explain. Your body is composed of atoms that are quantum entangled with the atoms of everyone you've ever come into contact with. All of those atoms are also tied to the quantum force we call the Origin Entity. Our technology is past your understanding, but if you accept your role as a link in the ring, we can access your connection to the Origin Entity, and then we can access those you're connected to. Kate. The rest of your people. It's a domino effect. If our theory is correct, the ring will spread instantly via your quantum entanglements."

Quote

"We always try it the easy way, David. We've been doing this a very long time. If you refuse, we'll try to assimilate you anyway. If we can't, we'll kill you. Then, when our ships arrive at your world, they'll kill everyone else. We kill anything we can't assimilate. There's only room for one advanced species in this universe, and the ring is that race. Be smart, David. Think about Kate. What she would want. If you join the ring, those ships will be picking up links when they arrive. Otherwise, it will be a massacre. Kate will die too. So will you."

Quote

With the Exile scientists and fleet commanders assembled in the large conference room, Kate stood before a screen that covered the far wall and presented the research-both what she had done in her own time and that which she had seen in Isis' time.

Quote

"Lykos," Perseus said, "this is Dr. Kate Warner. She created the therapy that neutralized the sentinels, and she helped find you."

Quote

The four of them had awoken in 1978, and the tubes had remained vacant since then, with one exception: Dorian had placed the infant he took from Kate in one of the tubes.

Kate and David still weren't sure if Dorian had been toying with Kate or if the infant really was in one of the tubes, but in Morocco, David had sworn he would find Kate's child-even if it killed him.
