This really . . . was not a great book. It had its moments (mostly in the exploration of the consequences from the fourth season episode "Beneath the Surface", consequences being something Stargate SG-1 wasn't normally interested in). But mostly I just wanted an SG-1 fix, I realized there were in-universe novels, and my library system only had this one and another to check out. So I did. NO REGRETS.
3.5 stars. An interesting premise but towards the end, the story started to drag. I loved that they showed the consequences of one of the common episode plots, something we haven't see on the show itself. And I also didn't notice any canon mistakes - that's a thing that really turns me off in tie-in novels, when the writers get basic canon facts wrong. What I liked best about the book was how much the team cared about each other and how in-character they all were, no OOC behavior. More books lik ...more

Nice to have a story with roots in Celtic mythology but I was hoping it would explore the link with Earth more and the culture from which the people came. Also was disappointed in not having a Goa'uld antagonist based on a Celtic deity! But it was a good story overall.

Solid SG1 adventure

I like it when the story includes characters beyond SG1. A little romance, a lot of tension, and SG1 coming together after a tuff assignment. Solidly written, fun to read.
A little uneven at times but worth the read.
This book gives us a lot of inner thoughts for Sam and Jack about their relationship (mostly Sam if
i recall correctly but I read it so long ago) so I should have been deliriously out of my mind happy, but... the adventure theteam went on started out so well as far as a unique premise that the citizens of the world the team visited gets only one channel of, i think it was, a soap opera. But that is never dealt with as far as - is the government sending subliminal messages? Are they being kept fr
This was my first read of a book based on a TV show, that I can recall anyway. I thought that it was well done, the characters were captured well and the repercussions from a previous traumatic episode were explored which is something not often seen in the show. I love the show and the storyline seemed a good fit to something that could have been on the show. I liked that we got to see a bit into each main character and even into the "guest star" characters.

Its a book of religious vs. technology debate. Similar to some scientist vs. religious aspects of reality. Except the twist is the tech' came first and religious came after and instead of a bible book, all their "scriptures" are scripted into giant billboards to living room size televisions of two actors acting out the message of the day. And repeated several times a day.

Great tie-in to the season 4 series. Excellent capture of the personalities of them mixing in with misidentifying one self and

This wasn't the most engrossing SG-1 story. The plot seemed a bit too similar to some of the actual television episodes. The characters themselves were well written but I never got the sense that they were in any real danger. It could also have benefited from more proofreading, as the text was littered with typos and missing words.
SG1 go to a planet to get a shield for their planet. They inhabitants worship a daytime soap and don't like anyone who does not share their faith. This is a fun read, with all the characters acting like they should. A good read.
A good solid SG1 adventure. Would like to have had more background on the planet this book takes place on, but that fact did not detract from the story at all. Just Curious.
