Watch your step...
It was meant to be an easy mission, a walk in the park. But SG-1�s first trip off-world after Colonel O�Neill�s return from Edora (STARGATE SG-1: One Hundred Days) proves to be anything but easy.
Tapped for a covert assignment, O�Neill must conceal the truth from his team at all costs. So when Dr Daniel Jackson is injured and the mission begins to go awry, tensions quickly reach a breaking point. Stranded on a hostile planet, and desperate to find a way home before it�s too late, O�Neill leads his fractured team on a desperate journey across a barren and forsaken world.
Faced with an enemy more vicious than anything they�ve encountered before, only SG-1�s strength as a unit will keep them alive � if the secret O�Neill is hiding doesn�t tear them apart first...
�You know,� Sam said, �these Amam could just be the Jaffa of a new System Lord who�s come in here and wiped out whoever used to be in charge.�
�That�s what I was thinking.� Daniel turned toward her, his glasses glinting in the faint light seeping around the door. �They�re probably Jaffa mythologized into �undead� creatures by whatever Goa�uld first ruled this world. Perhaps they�ve even taken on the persona of Amam?�
�And don�t forget the sarcophagus,� Sam added. �I mean, talk about rising from the dead...�
�Yes! I think we can say we�re not dealing with real live � or is that real undead? � zombies.�
�I hope you�re right,� the colonel said, �because Night of the Living Dead spooked the hell outa Teal�c.�
�It did not, O�Neill.�
�He�s just saying that. He was watching through his fingers.�
Sam grinned, she couldn�t help herself. �At least one thing�s clear, sir. Whoever these �Devourers� are, they can use the Stargate network. And that means there�s a way home.�
�My thoughts exactly, Carter.� He scrubbed a hand through his hair. �I can�t believe I�m about to say this, but it looks like tracking down the flesh-eating-snakehead-zombies is actually our best chance of getting off this rock.�
