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.
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.
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.
