(PDF KINDLE) [Four Dragons Stargate SG 1 #16] ↠ Diana Dru Botsford

D depth only a book can give The story centers on team interactions right after Daniel s de ascension and background on Lord Yu one of the most intriguing Goa uld from the series Both of these are plots I would have loved to have seen of on SG1 so I m glad they were handled so well here The characterizations were xcellent Look the story itself wasn t too bad uite asily could have been an pisode However the Sinner's Heart editing was horrendous and I felt like the author wasn t fully aware of or really that knowledgable about the SG 1 universe and its mythology Disclaimer The author is a good friend of mine However I bought this book at full priceI first read this soon after it came out but it looks like I never recorded it or wrote a review Oops I decided to read it again in preparation for the seuel THE DRIFTI ve heard the critiue that media tie in novels are basically justpisodes of the show I d like to offer FOUR DRAGONS as a counter to that critiue This novel is than just a random pisode It s a feature length movie that xpands upon the plot arc of the show develops the characters creates character depth that is difficult in the visual medium and gives us special ffects that creates character depth that is difficult in the visual medium and gives us special ffects that s computers can only dream of producingHowever my favorite part of this novel is the villain As much as I love the show I got bored with the Goa uld after a while at least until I realized A Vineyard Christmas exactly how bonkers Anubis backstory was For the most part the snakeheads were cheesy and two dimensional So it was awesome to read a book about a Goa uld System Lord with depth character motivation and history The book slowly reveals that Yu s relationship with ancient China is much different than that the Egyptian system lords had I also appreciate that the author does not try to cram in anxplanation for Een Bijzondere Vorm Van Osteosclerose every secret Sam Carter and Daniel Jackson are smart but they are not omnipotentspecially not when being put through the trials Botsford throws at them I am hopeful and put through the trials Botsford throws at them I am hopeful and to learn in THE DRIFTStylistically another major source of njoyment I derived from this novel is Botsford s use of voice She captures all of the main team perfectly along with other SG 1 characters that fans know and love This goes beyond sticking in familiar catchphrases which is a cop out I ve seen in both other media tie ins and in fanfic The original characters were also well crafted without resorting to cliches of language and accent which would be asy to do with Chinese and Jamaican charactersI ve read most of the official SG 1 novels and I ve read a metric ton of Stargate fanfic over the years Between both sources FOUR DRAGONS asily makes my top ten An awesome SG 1 story Very in character with the team caring for ach other like a family not just as colleagues friends In fact it was like reading a long gen fic The storyline was Hot Shot (North Ridge Book 3) engaging withnough intrigue about what the Chinese ambassador was hiding and what the Goa uld Lord Yu was actually up to to keep me very interested despite only having time to read it in bite sized chunks rather than all at once like I normally would with a novel like this.

A new archeological dig where Ancient writing and arly Imperial Chinese artifacts are swirled into a mystifying and for Daniel a fascinating hodgepodge Jack forces Daniel to train rather than dig But Daniel rebels and While My Soldier Serves escapes to an isolated corner of the site where transportation rings activate and sweep him away to System Lord Yu s mothership just asnemy gliders attack the archaeologists and the SG teams vacuating themAs the search and rescue mission for Daniel is organized obstacle after obstacle is thrown in the SG team s path A mysterious Chinese ambassador refuses to allow the team to carry lethal weapons and ndanger the life of China s most famous ಪರಿಸರದ ಕತೆ Parisarada Kathe emperor The ambassador also insists the team carry a Goa uld communications device so that he can monitor the mission andnsure his demands are followed from the safety of headuarters Jack s irritation and subseuent mounting rebellion and sarcasm add to the story s background humor again and again But little by little the command staff at SG headuarters and the team in the field snuff out the complex layers of mystery surrounding the kidnapping until the final surprisingly philosophical answer is revealedAll too often the problem with fan fiction is an nthusiastic but sorrowfully incompetent writer Botsford blows that stereotype across the galaxy The characters aren t cardboard cutouts but incompetent writer Botsford blows that stereotype across the galaxy The characters aren t cardboard cutouts but dimensional with the actors voices saying their lines in my absorbed mind There are a few rrant typos common now in all published works but they aren t intrusive as the crisp writing style invites the reader to the next wordThe plot is sound deep and robust with a considered and logically satisfying nding that thankfully screams SEUEL Not all mysteries are solved with just nough left dangling to பொன்னியின் செல்வன் - புது வெள்ளம் entice the reader to continue playing Botsford s game And for those Stargate fans salivating at this review be comforted she s currently researching that seuel in Antarctica Diana Dru Botsford is a master at visual storytelling Reading this book was just like watching anxtended SG 1 The Return of the Carter Boys: The Carter Boys 2 episode I could seeverything perfectly Not only that but she nails the voice of the SG 1 franchise The character dialogue was so spot on that I could hear the actors voices in my head saying the lines If you re looking for an authentic SG 1 A Meditation on Murder experience this book is itThis is set in the seventh season a favorite of mine in anspecially poignant time for team dynamics with Daniel s recent return from Ascension laying the backdrop The author delves deep into the characters psyches and really xplores the relationship between Daniel and Jack and the strong motions Jack has for Travis each of his team membersShe does a great job of balancingdge of your seat action with character driven storytelling and creates something greater than the sum of its parts This book is a MUST for any SG 1 fans Highly recommended The author stayed true to the characters that rarely happens here Great book for SG 1 fans This
