In the year 799 (Aschen calender), Earth is a colony under strict reign by an oppressive Aschen government. The Aschen have turned humans into slaves, and seized control over the entire planet, including the Stargate–a device that allows them to form a wormhole and travel thousands of light years across the galaxy to their home planet within seconds.
Humanity is at the brink of extinction. Due to advanced Aschen medicine human lifespan has almost tripled, but most of the human population is born infertile. Only a small percent of humans are so-called gifted ones, who are able to conceive/father children. Strict rules apply to these gifted ones, as the Aschen government wants to uphold the human population.
Samantha Carter is 25 years old. She has just come of age and undergoes her first fertility tests. When her tests turn out positive, her life is about to take a dramatic turn for the worse. Unwilling to accept a forced marriage and life in a breeding facility under Aschen control, she runs away from home to find the resistance and fight for the freedom of Earth as well as her own.
As she meets Jack O’Neill, camp leader of resistance Cell 4, neither of them realizes they are bound together by more than the mutual goal to free Earth from Aschen reign. Side by side, they fight to liberate their world from the oppression of an alien race using a second, secret Stargate found almost a century before in the Antarctica forests…

One of the best Stargate stories that I have ever read. The author manages to create a different universe without losing the spirit of the original Stargate television show. Well done! Will definitely be reading this one again.
I'm not very familiar with the Stargate universe, so I'm not sure just how much of this book is a fanfiction, how much is set in stone in the universe, how much of it was original. However, that said, I really enjoyed the story. It triggered at right places, it was full of action where needed, soothing with romance when things got too grim. I really hope to see more from this writer, will definitely be following her career. I would give it 5 stars in the fanfiction category (it's better than maaaany original stories I've read over the years), however it will get a 4 overall. A very pleasant read.
This book is what I needed in my life! From the beginning I have been a Jack/Sam shipper and believe them to be together in the canon line. But this book surpassed any expectations I may have had prior to starting. The author has captured the essence of each and every character so perfectly that I read this in their voices. What a surprise to find the old version of the book in here AND the bonus content!! Maybe one day I will go through it. The author has at least one short story on her website about Jack and Sam in the canon line. It’s worth a read!!!!
Basically a Jack and Sam love story in an alternative universe. Quite a long story but an easy read. The author has captured the essence of the TV characters very well. So much so that you can hear the actors voices in your head when reading the dialogue.
I loved reading this. One of the most fun, imaginative novels I’ve read in years - science fiction or otherwise. Characters we have loved forever get a whole new life in this AU exploration of a world conquered by the Aschen Federation, and it’s just as compelling as any canon SG-1 story arc (and depending on you interpret it, this *is* canon, too!).
