In the days before we had access to many of our favorite shows via DVD or streaming, one of the only ways to re-capture the feeling of enjoying an episode or two was via a tie-in novel. Most tie-in novels serve to remind me of why I like a particular show and serve as a nice bubble-gum type of book--enjoyable enough while chewing it, but not something I will necessarily recall long after I'm done.

Such is the case with Eureka: Road Less Traveled.

It's certainly not the worst tie-in novel I've eve

A book based on the Syfy television show. This book takes place about halfway during the show's run. In this novel, a scientist discovers a way to look into another dimension. This dimension is almost exactly like the dimension that the show takes place in. There are minor differences. With this being Eureka, we all know that with every science project things will go awry and they do with this one.

This was a fun book. This book could have been an episode of the show. The author portrayed the cha

In a really good story a Global Dynamics research has found a way to visualize another dimension. What she and the others see is a near-duplicate Eureka. Carter, though, doesn't exist in that version.
Problems arise when the sound becomes clear between the two towns and the scientists realize that the two realities are being drawn towards each other. More and more of the Eureka 2 city folk are ending up in Eureka 1 and if the process is not stopped the two dimensions could collide and destroy ea

Sheriff Carter is an average, every day type of guy that is in charge of keeping a not so average town safe and secure. This is Eureka, a town of America's most talented and intelligent scientists. This is a scientific community that contributes to new discoveries and inventions- and sometimes the experiments and trials can get out of hand! In this adventure in Eureka, someone steals a Thunderbird egg from a laboratory in G.D. Also, a scientist is experimenting on visualizing an alternate dimens ...more
I enjoyed the chance to visit Eureka again. It's been almost a year since it went off the air, and I'm missing my favorite town of geniuses. However, the problem with this book is that it was written around the middle of Eureka's run, so it ends up seeming dated. So much about the characters (their relationships, their jobs, etc.) had changed by the end of the show, so it's weird to read about them in a book like this, knowing so much more than the characters do about what's going to happen in t ...more
Overall, I'd suggest Road Less Traveled to fans of the TV show Eureka. The story was interesting, with sci-fi touches, a bit of humor, and a mixture of action and problem-solving. The characterizations were spot on. And Ramsay integrated previous minor characters and storylines, adding to the world-building for Eureka fans.

More please

I loved the show and these books were a fun read. I hope there are going to be more at some point.

I feel like Cris captured the characters much better in this one. :-)

I love this show, and I liked the first two Eureka books. This book is definitely the weakest in the series. Nothing really happens until page 110 or so. Then, still, the story meanders. Yet, as the last new piece of Eureka content I'm likely to ever ingest, I'm savoring the characters and enjoying the book as best I can.

So I absolutely love Eureka and I've enjoyed both of the past books written in this universe. But this one didn't really live up the second one (Called Brain Box Blues). It was astonishingly better than the first, but worst than the second. Overall I really liked this book and enjoyed the idea of an alternate universe.

I love the tv show an am sorry that it has come to an end, but I am glad that books are now being written in the Eureka universe. This one takes place after Zoe has gone to Harvard, but before their trip to '47.

researcher has a break through on being able to see into a parallel dimension. The two Eureka's begin to bleed together. Sheriff Carter must save both Eureka's.

I'm sad that this is the third Eureka Media Tie in and that means that I'm all done with Eureka books (though, I guess I could try to find the graphic novels).
