I highly recommend this book, it is definitively a gripping page-turner!
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.
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.Read more ›
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!
