Book Description

The faces of evil

Rumours and accusations are reaching Stargate Command, and nothing is making sense. When SG-1 is met with fear and loathing on a peaceful world, and Master Bra’tac lays allegations of war crimes at their feet, they know they must investigate.

But the investigation leads the team into a deadly assault and it’s only when a second Daniel Jackson stumbles through the Stargate, begging for help, that the truth begins to emerge. Because this Daniel Jackson is the product of a rogue NID operation that spans the reaches of the galaxy, and the tale he has to tell is truly shocking.

Facing a cunning and ruthless enemy, SG-1 must confront and triumph over their own capacity for cruelty and violence in order to save the SGC – and themselves…

HYDRA

“Off-world activation,” Hammond answered. “It’s Bra’tac’s IDC.” No sooner had he explained than Bra’tac stepped through the wormhole, heavy boots clanging on the ramp. Teal’c stepped forward, ready to exchange traditional greetings, but Jack put a hand on his shoulder, a subtle command. Bra’tac’s posture was stiff, and he barely glanced at either Jack or Teal’c. Beneath Jack’s hand, Teal’c tensed.

“Welcome, Master Bra’tac,” Hammond said.

No answering smile came from Bra’tac. Instead, he nodded to Hammond and said, “Hammond of Texas. I have come to ask for an explanation for your actions on the mountain world of the Eshet and to tell you the trust of the Jaffa has been broken.”

Jack had never heard Bra’tac express mistrust of the Tauri since those very earliest days. The hair rose on the back of his neck. “Bra’tac, what the hell are you talking about?”

“I am speaking of the massacre which occurred on Eshet yesterday — the massacre led by your team in pursuit of technology owned by the people of that world.”

    3.0 out of 5 stars Oh my! 22 Mar. 2011
    Format:Mass Market Paperback
    I brought this book because it was missing from my collection, but I have to warn you. The book never seemed to end, instead of finishing the book, I just flicked through it to understand the gist of it, once doing so I've left it abandoned on my shelf. There's no real story to make you go "What was that?" or "Oh my god!" it left me feeling rather bored and tired of the story. The characters were correct in most ways, they had little banter which unfortunately failed to drag the story through.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Difficult read but worth it! 19 July 2011
    By Beezus
    Format:Mass Market Paperback
    I read this book sometime ago so I'll try to recap what was so great about it. The very first page threw me for a loop as Teal'c called Jack "Colonel O'Neil." Those of us who are FANatics of Stargate know that Teal'c calls Jack -- "O'Neil" -- nothing more. (He may have called him "Colonel O'Neil" in a very early episode - once.) So I began thinking "Oh great, another novel where the author doesn't really know the characters." It turns out, there is a very good reason for what seems to be an out-of-character error. There were some things in the book that were so well described, I could visualize it in my mind as if I were actually watching the action! I could write about things that I know would interest Stargate fans but I don't want to spoil the adventure for those who will take the challenge and read this book.

    2.0 out of 5 stars Couldn't finish it. 30 Jan. 2011
    Format:Mass Market Paperback
    I got three quarters through and gave up. I have read many of the other Stargate books, but this one is really hard to read! It feels like it is going no where and the pace is so slow...

    2.0 out of 5 stars Too much in one book 12 July 2010
    By L. Berry - Published on Amazon.com
    Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
    I've always had a bit of a soft spot for Stargate books that wrapped up previous plot lines. It's nice to finally get some closure. I hope that lends weight to my review of this book, which I find to be rather disappointing.
    First, the good stuff: WE finally find out about at least two plot points used in old SG-1 episodes, namely the Quantum mirror, and Harlan and his android "clones" of SG-1. The writing seems sound at first, balancing the action with the techno-babble.
    Where did it all go wrong? There is an old saying "Too many cooks spoil the broth". in my experience with SG-1 novels, books with two authors never turn out quite right, and that holds true here. The first thing to discuss is the trust and there crew of renegade scientists. It seems illogical and impractical to create a large offworld base they couldn't even stay in contact with regularly, to create several robot copies of SG-1 to find alien goodies. Expensive too, considering the alternatives. it then splits up into a story about four different SG-1's that gets more than a little confusing. at some point, one of the copy teams decides to go looking for the origin of the quantum mirror, finding a world that it's hard to imagine even insane robots would hazard visiting. The reasoning becomes even more scewed at this point, with pointless decisions being made all around.The novel wraps up with a nice dosage of "WTF just happened?' And you are left trying to figure out what the consequences they talked about are, and what the fourth SG-1 copy is going to do with itself.
    This is a book I recommend for diehard SG-1 fans, because it ties up loose ends, but not to the casual reader, as the plot quickly becomes mired down, and confusing.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Really enjoyed it 18 May 2013
    By JeanJ - Published on Amazon.com
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    I'm a huge SG-1 fan and I read the books partly to keep them coming. Some I like, some I really don't care much for. This was one of the really good ones. Yes, it's a little complicated, so if you want your stories spoon fed you may not like it. It was not really hard at all to tell which characters (alpha Daniel, theta Daniel, etc) were which, if you paid attention as you read. I don't really expect great literature from these books, but science fiction well told often brings up ideas and observations that make us think. This book asks things like what makes a person a person, or what you become with no free will at all or when you take a person's conscience out of the equation. The only part I kind of didn't like was when Jack (our Jack) forcibly took a piece of technology from an alien culture; it was a little muddy in parts concerning how Jack (and Teal'c) were maybe not so different from their less savory counterparts. They're my heroes, I want them to be at least a little better! All in all this book put me back in the Stargate universe for a while, and that made me happy!

    3.0 out of 5 stars Good but too violent. Good follow up to the losers Conrad and Simmons 12 Oct. 2014
    By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    I didn't find it confusing, but I was hoping Col Simmons would get his butt burned more ... oh, wait, that happened on the Prometheus, sorry. The basic story line was good, as well as how it was told, but like a few other books, this just had too much blood and gore for my tastes, otherwise I'd give it 4 stars.

    I think the Stargate authors need to get their heads screwed on right - the ones who think the shock treatment is needed. It isn't. Stargate was never about that, so get over it. if more reviewers made that clear I'd not have bought some of the books.

    So, Adrian Conrad resurfaces, the G'oauld are arrogant, you want to shoot simmons, the Military are honorable except for a very few - those are actually high points that can't be ignored (a few books do unfortunately) and do warrant 3 stars and not a downgrade to 2.

    So, cloning, which was a major issue in Atlantis (as well as the episode that has "Odo" as the point of contact on planet) is used to good effect here. No, that comes up early enough I'm not spoiling much - same with Simmons and Conrad. Perhaps the second half of hte book is about "how will they solve this" and not about story line development.

    As for Nirrti (hey, who else would be in on cloning?), she isn't described as she is in the TV series - what moron got that wrong? Here she is slight, while on TV she was average height but clearly heavy on cleavage, if not that being the defining factor about how she looked.

    The amount of focus on the stargate on the military site - why? It's not like a fight ever broke out and had folks trapped (it's in a very narrow chasm of sorts). So the focus is just out of place, although it doesn't ruin anything. I was expecting it to be important before the book ended but ... it wasn't. It gets mentioned so many times - the book should have been edited before going to publication as taking it out would have kept the pace moving along.

    What I found confusing - this isn't the only book - is the attempt to describe the physical layout. Note to authors: either do a decent job, or don't bother. So much of this "it was far.. it was farther ... it was really far" is like fingernails on a chalkboard. What was left, what was right, and just how far up and down were things? There are only a few things that I got squared away on, and that has to be a negative given the author's time spent on trying to describe things. Hey, focus on the story. The idea that we hear it as the characters learn it doesn't give us much of an idea because we can't turn around as they do and get perspective - so this approach is a poor one, end of discussion.

    3.0 out of 5 stars Well written, but confusing 17 Aug. 2010
    By Gmarie - Published on Amazon.com
    Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
    I hate to say bad things about this book. It really has a well thought out plot. It is intricate and interesting, but I found it difficult to follow. The criticism I have to offer is that the chapters do not go in consecutive order. They jump around. It all centers around the invasion of Eshet but you jump from way before the invasion to after the invasion to during the invasion. And you jump from the SGC to the NID to the various cloned teams of SG-1. It was hard for me to follow it. And it was difficult to keep track of which SG team the book was talking about and what did that team do and what are they doing now? The NID has created clones via Harlan to send out to do their dirty work for them. So you have the alpha Jack, Teal'c, Daniel, and Sam as well as the beta, delta, theta, etc. etc. One of the teams, the thetas, have gone rogue and it's up to the other teams to find them, as well as the actually SG-1 team. Usually the author did a pretty good job of letting you know if you were reading about the real Jack, or the alpha Jack, or the theta Jack, etc. Sometimes it wasn't very clear. And I had trouble keeping track of which Jack did what? Plus, having the chapters not go in order just made it more complicated. If I were to go back and read it again I would mark which chapters come first, second, etc. and probably try to read it in order because this story just really confused the heck out of me.

    3.0 out of 5 stars decent Read 23 Dec. 2008
    By Gatie - Published on Amazon.com
    Format:Mass Market Paperback
    I buy all the Stargate series books just to keep them going and I have enjoyed the majority of them. I think this writer has a decent grasp of the characters, however I found the way the book was written to be somewhat confusing. i know it was supposed to be written that way, but it was a little much trying to keep it all straight. Good idea, but it needed a better execution.
