Stargate SG-1: Hostile Ground by Sally Malcolm & Laura Harper
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 proves to be anything but easy.
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.
Set during season 3 of Stargate SG-1, Daniel is seriously injured and the team is under attack when they dial for home, but end up on a strange planet. Meanwhile, back on Earth, Stargate command must put their search for SG-1 on hold as Earth faces a bigger problem.
Full of danger, suspense, and an interesting new planet – this story doesn’t disappoint. And the characters are vivid and spot on. The team is introduced to a new foe that will be familiar to fans of Atlantis. The only thing that slowed the pacing down was the switch to the events on Earth, which didn’t pick up until later on as events become disastrous. But that point of view on Earth is important to the future of this series, so I understand why it was included. Hostile Ground is book one of the Apocalypse series. Like a story arc of the actual show, this book has a cliffhanger ending which will leave fans eager for the next installment.
