Author J. Frances Crane is the pen name of Sally Malcolm and Laura Harper. Sally Malcolm is, in my opinion, one of the best STARGATE SG-1 authors, as her team dialog is exactly as it would be mouthed by the tv characters. The story moves along nicely, sometimes predictable, sometimes not. It is the story of SG-1's reluctant mission to P4X-66Q for a second visit. O'Neill and team really do not want to revisit this world, yet there is reference to Sciath De, or God's Shield - a technological shield that just might protect Earth and other planets from the Goa'uld. General Hammond insists the team go to investigate further. As usual with SG-1, their journey takes them on an unexpected side trip through the Ark and into the Badlands as well as The Cove.

Sunrise is simply enormous fun. If you miss the old-style SG-1, the banter, the adventure, the nifty new worlds to explore, and most of all the team, this is your book. It's well written, everyone is perfectly in character, and it reads like an undiscovered classic episode. This is my favorite of the SG-1 novels to date.

What can I say, I am a sucker for Stargate SG-1 books. We even subscribed to cable TV just so we could continue to watch Stargate SG-1 after it was dropped from new production on network TV. Stargate SG-1 is the sort of show you either love or hate and the same is true of the books. I like this book, but I haven't found a Stargate SG-1 TV episode or book I didn't like.

Sunrise is a companion book to the popular TV series Stargate SG-1
This is another mission for SG-1 as seen by the book authors. I found it very authentic, the character nuances, language and mannerisms fitted my images of the on-screen characters. Jack's wise-cracks, Daniel's peace-making, Teal'c's no-nonsense straight observations and Samantha's technical know-how, even General Hammond's gruffness all made me re-live the episodes on TV.

In this mission Jack and the team have found reference to a "Shield of the Gods" found on an abandoned planet which appears to be a research outpost. Jack is reluctant to take on the mission to travel to the home world of these new people, but General Hammond has the final say.

The team arrive on Ierna and are met by Ennis Channon, he is Pastor of the Ark, these people speak a Gaelic based dialect. They have a religious TV channel which daily speaks of the "Message of our Lord". Their history only goes back 150 years, but when Daniel asks about the Sciath De', he is met with an uncomfortable silence. These people obviously have secrets.

Ennis's rebellious daughter Rhionna, makes contact and offers SG-1 some answers, she takes them outside of the Ark into the Badlands where outcasts live in poverty and at the mercy of a severe sun. Here lies a trail of answers and more questions. People from the sea-faring Seachrani arrive to trade and worn of a great storm pending. Soldiers from the Ark come and there is a stand-off, Daniel is Kidnapped, Sam and Teal'c arrested and Jack becomes a stowaway.

I enjoyed this mission and read on way into the night to finish the book as I immersed myself in the world of SG-1.

A enjoyable story - although mostly that was 'cause it had been such a long time since the last book came out. The story was your typical adventure tale without any surprises at all. In fact, it was extremely predictable with clues screamed out at the reader rather than hinted at. It was amazing that it took so long for the characters to clue in to what was happening what with the avalanche of hints. This story didn't seem to be written with much enthusiasm by the authors and at times the story felt strained. The plot was extremely simplistic and our heros simply went with the flow throughout at an almost yawn-worthy pace. There were no surprises, no great action scenes and nothing much to entertain the Stargate enthusiast.
I'm beginning to lose my enthusiasm for Stargate books given the lack of quality writing by writers that actually know both the series and the characters well and also write with interest and real enthusiasm instead of a bank balance in mind.

I am a huge fan of classic SG-1 -- Jack, Daniel, Sam, and Teal'c. I've read most of the Fandemonium novels featuring the old team, and the quality varies widely, but this is one of the few I didn't finish. I couldn't work up enough interest to read to the end. Maybe the problem is that the novel spends a lot of time on completely uncompelling original characters, rather than concentrating on team dynamics. Or maybe it's because the plot feels too hackneyed and predictable. The writing isn't especially poor or anything, but this novel just didn't work.

I'm a long time Stargate SG-1 fan and have read most of the novels. J. France's Crane has written a very enjoyable store that I really liked. The character's voices are spot on and the story compelling enough to keep me reading on. Great read.

The story is slow, the author spends too much time on the people of the world than on SG-1. There aren't any great "Jackisms", Carter great techno-feats or Daniel insights. As a fan of the movie, every season, lots of SG-1 books, I found myself skipping ahead, skimming pages to get the storyline (which you can figure out in 30 mins without missing anything). I wasted money on this book when I could have waited for it to show up on the counters at "half priced books" - do yourself a favor and pick another book.
