Overview

SG-1 are asked by the Tok'ra to rescue a creature known as Mujina. The last of its species, Mujina is devoid of face or form and draws its substance from the needs of those around it. The creature is an archetype - a hero for all, a villain for all, depending upon whose influence it falls under. And the Goa'uld Apophis, understanding the potential for havoc Mujina offers, has set his heart on possessing the creature.

TEASER:


TEAL’C roared.
Fifty feet from the gate the blue water of the event horizon ripped out of the aperture. The way home was open. O’Neill had done it. Teal’c saw the colonel go down again. The sucking silence that followed was hideous. Then both Carter and Daniel Jackson were yelling — this time the sound was primal and filled with fear for the fallen O’Neill.
Teal’c ducked beneath a wild burst of fire from a Jaffa weapon, and ran, hard, fast, keeping low, his arms and legs pumping. A burning man staggered across his path. The flames consumed him, turning his flesh to blistered sores. Teal’c fired once, putting the Jaffa out of his misery, and was past him. He ran to O’Neill’s side and gathered him into his arms. The colonel shuddered once, violently, and opened his eyes. “Go!” he rasped.
“Indeed,” Teal’c said, rising. He watched Daniel Jackson’s back disappear through the gate and followed him. “We do not leave men behind, O’Neill. That is the law.”
But O’Neill had lapsed into unconsciousness.

    where is sg1?

    I was very disappointed in this book. The characters from sg1 seemed to be window dressing for a stand alone sci fi story. You can go pages without seeing a mention of one of our favorite characters. The free preview part is misleading as it is set in Stargate circumstances, but once it picks up, our characters are all but lost.

    and the ending is incredibly abrupt. If you want a stargate novel, I suggest you skip this one.
