Just finished the kindle edition of this book, and yep - it's a good one. This was a fast paced action packed and very enjoyable story. Unfortunately the reader really needs to have watched or recently rewatched the relevant time travel episodes to completely get this story. The authors assume that the readers are familiar with the episodes and have simply continued the story line.
It gets quite confusing when there are two Daniels, Teal'c's and Carter's. The authors handled this quite well although I'm sure even they found it hard to sort out characters. But each character has developed into a distinct individual and that certainly helps with the sorting.
This book had a complex and well thought out plot. The action started early and just kept getting better. There were one or two small scenes that grated a little but overall I was enjoying the story too much to care.
Thankfully this book was very well written and the characters were very well described. The authors are obviously serious fans of the series and it shows. The entire book was rich with wonderful imagery and glimpses of ancient Egyptian life.
This book is a must for any Stargate fan and pretty well a must for anyone who simply loves a good story. Fandemonium seem to be doing a little better at picking winning stories - it helps that they have chosen authors who both enjoyed the series and know the series well.

I'm about a third of the way through and I'd say that it starts out fairly slowly (outside of the short SGC action scene) and then starts moving about a quarter of the way into the book. I didn't have any problems keeping the dual characters distinct based on the nomenclature approach taken. The three previous shows that help are the movie Continuum and the two TV shows Moebius Part 1 and Moebius Part 2. I will update this when I have finished the book. My approach on reading these books is to read a few pages at a time, sometimes several times a day. I usually don't read a huge amount all at once.

The book starts out fairly slowly with a lot of groundwork laid and then gets into the action scenes about a third of the way in. There are a lot of action scenes mixed in with slower dialogues and some traveling scenes. I didn't have problems keeping the dual characters separate (there's a clever nomenclature that's used). The three previous shows that are helpful are Continuum, Moebius Part 1 and Moebius Part 2. Cure from Season 6 may also be helpful.

There are a lot of loose ends tied up in this book. Jo Graham's books get blessed by MGM so I consider her books to be the official line on where they want things to be. The loose ends being tied up are really well done and provides some sense of completion for many areas and characters. The book also answers some "what if I had ...?" type questions which are possible with dual characters. This book, is a must read for die-hard fans.

While time travel stories can cause disappointment if not thoroughly thought through, the author has created some very satisfying parodoxes in this "episode" (because the book has the feel of an extended episode). She got the main thing right for any tv show where the characters are better known to the fans than to the writers, producers, and actors even - nobody sounds out of character. While having multiples of characters does create a bit of confusion for the reader, the author handles this well, and with a little bit of concentration by the reader of considering the context, it's easy to keep track of who's who and from which timeline.

Although it is based on the events of Season 8's Moebius, this book's greatest strength is that it feels like it belongs to the Stargate universe as a whole. It includes characters from Seasons 9 and 10 (and actually integrates them meaningfully into the story) as well as some from the past, like Anise, Ra, and Egeria. The book also refers to developments in the later seasons of Atlantis and includes Carter's promotion to commander of the George Hammond, where she is at the beginning of Stargate Universe. I was especially pleased with the way they explained why Ra never reinvaded Earth after the rebellion, which tied in perfectly with the larger picture of Stargate mythology.

The main weakness of this book is that many of the Egyptian characters are underdeveloped, especially Aset who we are given little information about yet are expected to empathize with later on. I also felt that around the middle of the book, the story suffered from having new problems appear right at the very moment that a previous problem was solved, which made the book feel disjointed and stretched out, rather than upping the ante as was intended. The book would have also benefited from a quick prologue recapping the events of Moebius for those who hadn't seen it lately.

Ultimately though, I loved this book and I have to say that it's my favorite Stargate book I have read thus far. It's definitely not for newcomers to the franchise, but longtime fans will be more than delighted to find that it feels like an integral and unifying part of the universe that they know and love.
