In some of the earlier books for Stargate SG-1 I found the writing lacking a little even though they had decent stories. These two books combine both an excellent and exciting story line and excellent writing.

In some of the earlier books for Stargate SG-1 I found the writing lacking a little even though they had decent stories. I was hoping that Sally Malcolm had written more SG-1 books because they were really well done but alas it looks like these two were it. If you are looking to read Stargate SG-1 stories, I would highly recommend these two books. Great story line you can sink your teeth into along with brilliant job on the characters. You really felt the struggles and conflicts they were going through.

The Cost of Honor book. Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. Start by marking The Cost of Honor (Stargate SG-1, as Want to Read: Want to Read savin. ant to Read.

Overall, this book makes a fine addition to the canon of the Stargate universe. I recommend it and A Matter of Honor to any fan of Stargate SG-1.

SG-1 ends up on the unsubtle something's wrong planet, shenanigans happen, they happenĀ . It's a two part series (followed up by "The Cost of Honor") and it is just a great read. If you love Stargate SG1 you need this book. I was very pleased, it was great to read new content for this universe.

SG-1 ends up on the unsubtle something's wrong planet, shenanigans happen, they happen again after they get home, and then they go on a super-secret mission because of all the shenanigans.

These two books are so much better than the most recent stargate movie called "Ark of Truth" honestly just use these books for your next movie. The Cost of Honor is the conclusion to book 1(A Matter of Honor). Incredible worlds to visit- some amazing concepts and the characters were dead on! Keep writing Sally!!!!! Wonderful! Well Written!

I liked this but the ending was weak - as in unfinished. We hear so much about the ancients from early in the book without much closer as to what happens to their descendents. We also never really learn how things work out for other other race (the ones in power) who destroyed so many of their people for g'oauld like reasons even though the snakes aren't really involved much here except as history of the planet. In the end, (Spoiler) all works out for SG-1 but we simply don't get closure on the core part of the book, how the planet's 2 races got into this mess, and more importantly, where they go from there once the floodgates are opened to fixing things. At least with some planets Stargate TV visits we get followup.

So that was a weak point, but it doesn't detract from the otherwise good writing of the story, it only means that a few chapters in the end were not written. This moves along, and unlike some books (Hydra) you maintain a feeling of perspective - where things are in spatial terms. This book is far better at describing what matters and leaves the things that don't matter alone. Good.

I really enjoyed reading about George Hammond being involved before things are over. Very much, in tone but not uniform, that TV episode where he is one of the few to show up on chulak, in local garb, to help out. I enjoyed how they use Hammond in both cases, TV and this book. It really helps. George rolling up his sleeves so to speak - you know in the TV show he wants to get off world far more than he does, here it's "screw it, let's go" kind of thing. Yeah, General!

Just as good if not better than the first book, this details the rescue of SG-10 which, I will confess, took a lot less time than I expected to. Perhaps that was the point, however: while it only took a few chapters from our point of view and perhaps a day from SG-1's point of view, it took six months from the point of view of the SGC, and a lot had changed. The Kinahhi with their sheh'fet technology and with the aid of Senator Kinsey and Ambassador Crawford had gotten a foothold into Earth via the SGC itself, and were almost completely running the program by the time SG-1 got back. However, despite SG-1 being disbanded and the SGC under control of a hostile alien force, they managed to get back to Kinahhi and start a revolution which toppled their government and saved the Earth. The theme of overcoming the odds is very strong and ever present in this book, which is hardly a bad thing as the TV show itself had a very similar theme. This is not the most quotable book I've ever read, but the only quote that does come to mind was a good one. It appeared in a conversation between Teal'c and Dr. Jackson regarding preemptively sabotaging Crawford and Kinsey before they could become a threat to Earth's security. "By the time their plans for the Tau'ri are made apparent, Daniel Jackson, it will be too late to resist." "And if we go around locking people up for crimes they *might* commit, we may as well hand ourselves over to the Kinahhi right now!").

Overall, this book makes a fine addition to the canon of the Stargate universe. I recommend it and A Matter of Honor to any fan of Stargate SG-1.
There are two books in this series, "A Matter of Honor" and "The Cost of Honor" and they are both very well written. In some of the earlier books for Stargate SG-1 I found the writing lacking a little even though they had decent stories. These two books combine both an excellent and exciting story line and excellent writing. I was hoping that Sally Malcolm had written more SG-1 books because they were really well done but alas it looks like these two were it. If you are looking to read Stargate SG-1 stories, I would highly recommend these two books. Great story line you can sink your teeth into along with brilliant job on the characters. You really felt the struggles and conflicts they were going through.
Good enough action, and a satisfying resolution to the Boyd story, but... it didn't feel like SG-1. Carter was out of character. Teal'c was a hollow presence with none of his usual humor or development. Daniel was fairly in character, but one-dimensional and flat. Jack was mired in self-doubt and pity to the point where I was fed up. The action was well written, but it could have been about any generic military team. SG-1 was not well embodied.
The Cost of Honor picks up five years after the Season 2 episode "A matter of Time". This book is SOOOO GOOOD. I have been looking for more Stargate stories, and this book reads like an episode of the show. It's a two part series (Preceded by "A Matter of Honor") and it is just a great read. If you love Stargate SG1 you need this book. I was very pleased, it was great to read new content for this universe.
You definitely must read "A Matter of Honor" before you read this book so that you understand the story line at all. The author does a fantastic job of capturing the thoughts and words of the characters, including Jack O'Neill, Sam Carter, Teal'c, Daniel Jackson, George Hammond, and Senator Kinsey. The pace is pretty fast, with lots of action and more than a few miraculous recoveries that are just at the limit of what we're accustomed to with SG-1. The book is relatively dark with detailed torture of Sam Carter on two different occassions, and ponders the idea of 'no one gets left behind'...does the sentiment apply to everyone? how much risk do you take to carry it out? A good read, overall.
Pretty graphic for SG-1. It was very long and drawn out often repeating things a little to much. It also made Sam Carter out to be a little week minded which I was very uncomfortable with given her history as a soldier. The other characters were spot on(except Sam's). I enjoyed it, but felt it was long and depressing at times. I kept thinking :Man this is so depressing and I am not even half way through it. I liked the ending which was well worth the wait. Over all a good book that is sure to stay with you. If your a stargate SG-1 fan and want a dark story, then this is the book for you. I will tell others about it and suggest they buy it.
