This is a wonderful book. The plot is strong, the characters are true, the political intrigue is mysterious and gut twisting (without being dwelled upon too long so as to make it boring), the action is intensely breath-stealing and everyone's emotions are beautifully handled. The author avoids a common pitfall of TV tie-in books by not relying on the reader's interest in reading about their favorite characters as a substitute to developing a truly engrossing plot. The unfolding chain of events dominos quickly from its simple and familiar beginnings - a wish to bring lost comrades home, some stubborn, deceptive aliens and the ever pervasive threat of the political factions aligned against the SGC - into an adventure full of danger and surprises. The action scenes were particularly well written and had me on the edge of my seat repeatedly. I liked the way that every time you thought you knew what was going to happen or that they were finally going to make it into the clear, some new turn would be thrown into the works. Excellent! Everyone's emotions were also very well done and true to character. The way the author got into their heads and showed their interactions and the cause and effect of events was wonderful to read. Some parts I've already read multiple times just because they are so well done. It's like watching the show, only better in some ways because you can get what people are thinking, not just what they say and do.
I highly recommend this book, it is definitively a gripping page-turner!

Wow! reading other reviews it seems you either love it or hate it. I have to say that both are representing extremes that I cannot reconcile my opinions with. I'm going for well above average.
This is a good solid book with a nicely interesting, yet not to convoluted, plot and a bit of very well written action. In fact, once you've got past the early pages of the book it's pretty much all action. The characters are portrayed about as well as I've ever seen them written and it's interesting to get an insight into how they are thinking or feeling aside from the usual outward bravado that we see on the screen. Having said that, I question some of the motivation - particularly Carter's early on, and towards the end (read it and you'll know what I mean), not to mention the whole motivation of the book which drives them to do things that...well, seasoned millitary professionals just would not do under the circumstances presented in this book.
Looking beyond that obvious flaw, there's some great interaction, particularly between Carter and O'Neill - not romantic unless you're rabidly reading it into every little thing they say and do, either because you love it or hate it. Also between Daniel and O'Neill, and even Teal'c is well written for and that's something you rarely find. The point of view chops about a bit, but it seems to be primarily O'Neill, who grinds a few axes and lays a few demons to rest (an oppoturnity that TPTB sadly went on to miss on screen with this particular issue). Another reviewer mentions that the way this was handled was contrary to canon but I didn't get that vibe at all and can't really see how, as it's never been mentioned since, anyone could come to that conclusion.
Definitely worth a read.

A Matter Of Honor is a companion book to the TV series Stargate SG-1, it is book #1 in a two book storyline. It opens with Colonel Jack O'Neill attending a memorial service for members of an SG team who were "killed in action". That is the official line, however the truth is they are trapped after a sun imploded causing a black hole and contracting time. Jack is filled with guilt as his "Nobody gets left behind" policy failed these people.

The storyline then moves to the SGC. Senator Kinsey insists on sending a man from his political team to handle treaty negotiations on planet P4X-481 with the Kinahhi. Distrustful of Kinsey's reasons, Hammond sends SG-1 to escort Ambassador Crawford.

Jack immediately irritates Crawford and old feuds between the military and civilian interference surface, with Crawford determined to seek revenge. There is extremely tight security from the Kinahhi people, they hint at trouble. However they do show advanced technology. Jack and Sam are particularly interested in their anti-gravity systems. Could this be a way to save Boyd and his team from the black hole disaster?

Unfortunately with Crawford in charge of negotiations the anti-gravity technology is not on offer. The team get caught up in the fight with the dissidents and Jack comes home with an injured team and ethical problems. While they were there Daniel found links to Baal on the planet and after Jack's recent capture and torture by Baal they are reluctant to go forward with complex plans which might mean they could gather the materials they need to rescue Boyd.

I have to be honest and say that when I first saw this book I was a bit dubious about getting it having bought other books such as "The Morpheous Factor" and being sorely disappointed. However I decided to give it a chance and boy am I glad I did!
The author 'gets' the characters exactly and portrays them amazingly. I was particularly impressed with the way Jack is shown, as more often than not he is seen as just being sarcastic, but this book highlights his emotional side as well.
I do have to agree with one of the other reviewers though - the book does seem to centre around Jack more than the other characters - however there are obvious reasons why which I am not going to tell you as that would spoil it!
However to give you a picture of the main theme I will tell you that Baal is involved (for those that don't know Baal tortured Jack). I am going to leave the rest up to you!
To sum up this book is well worth the price and I have already pre-ordered the sequel - which shows how good it is!
