Another Tok'ra mission that goes pear-shaped Jun 15, 2008
The back cover of the book says, "All SG-1 wanted was technology to save Earth from the Goa'uld, but the mission to Euronda was a terrible failure. Now the dogs of Washington are baying for Jack O'Neill's blood - and Senator Robert Kinsey is leading the pack. When Jacob Carter asks General Hammond for SG-1's participation in a mission for the Tok'ra, it seems like the answer to O'Neill's dilemma. The secretive Tok'ra are running out of hosts, and Jacob believes he's found the answer - but it means O'Neill and his team must risk their lives infiltrating a Goa'uld slave breeding farm to recruit humans willing to join the Tok'ra. It's a risky proposition, especially since the fallout from Euronda has strained the team's bonds almost to breaking. If they can't find a way to put their differences behind them, they might not make it home alive..."
I found this book to be pretty fast paced, and the characterizations to be relatively good (certainly not perfect!). It was nice to read a story that includes Jacob Carter and also Martouf in addition to SG-1. You really do have to have seen the season four episode "The Other Side" to fully understand the angst that is explored by Daniel and Jack, and Daniel and Sam. This book takes place immediately after that episode. Other episode's events are referenced too, such as season three "Jolinar's Memories" and "The Devil You Know", so this book probably doesn't stand on its own very well. The mission is classic SG-1, so that aspect is very enjoyable. I enjoyed the book and found it hard to put down.
Worst. Stargate. Book. Ever. Feb 22, 2008
There is no such thing as a Stargate book worse than this one. In fact, I don't think there's any such thing as a book worse then this one. Okay, so that's untrue. But the first part is rather definitely not. I wish I could give this book zero stars. This book has the worst characterizations I have ever seen. I'm honestly surprised she didn't have Teal'c use contractions. Bad characterization for every single character. Really, really, REALLY bad characterizations. Absolutely terrible, completely illogical plot. Serious gaps. Strange ideas about the characters. Unengaging and uninteresting. Some silly and slightly disturbing ideas. The dialouge had rare moments. I laughed occasionally, but most of the time, I was throughly unimpressed. And another thing; every Stargate book seems to feel the need to dig into why the characters are what they are, search for deeper meanings, things that we already knew, but that the show trusted us to get without them spelling it out. All in all, whatever you do, don't waste your money on this book.
Very entertaining read for all fans Jan 10, 2008
I've only had experience with some Ashley McConnell Stargate SG-1 novels, and I can safely say that this series is much better. The dynamics between the characters are very close and there was really nothing wrong with this book in my view, it reads like an SG-1 double episode. Made my daily bus rides to college a whole lot more enjoyable. P.S.: watch the season 4 episode The Other Side before reading this book, so you know exactly what's going on.
mission recap Jul 26, 2007
After watching the episode that this book was based on. I had been wondering about what the follow-up was going to be for months after and after reading this one, I've got to admit that I'm impressed with the story. You can almost hear the characters thoughts of what that previous mission had done to their friend-ship especially between O'neill and Daniel. But if there was one major flaw in this story and the show then it would be with the Tok'ra. I say that the only problem with this one is with the Tok'ra: since after asking for help, they suddenly decide to pull out and leave the team to fend for them-selves. I also thought that to bring one or two previous episodes such as the season 2 episode" Need " and episode " Politics" was a good subtext in it-self. All in all, I recommend this to any who like the series.
Quick read May 12, 2007
This book flows rapidly and predictably. Still for any SG1 fan is a worthwhile and fun book.
