When Elizabeth Weir stepped through the Quantum Mirror to escape the Wraith-Asuran Alliance, her only thought was to keep Jonathan McKay safe. On the other side she finds an Atlantis torn apart by her own death, militarised and half undiscovered, it's true potential lost.
Can she adjust to a new reality and make herself a place in the world all over again? Or will she only ever be a living memorial to the leader they lost? Surrounded by strangers wearing familiar faces, she must come to terms with her loss and embrace her new world, if not for own sake, then for Jonathan and the child she carries within...

She wanted to drag them out there, show them what it was really like and then dare them to sit here and damn the people who made it their life’s work to make those very stars a safer place for all life, not just their own kind!
‘Jesus, John! Why didn’t you tell us she was pregnant?’ Richard crossed his arms across his chest, leaning back against the counter, he wouldn’t have wanted to hear it, but at that moment, he looked like his younger brother. ‘Have you told Nancy yet?’
