Ashley McConnell's Stargate SG-1: The First Amendment is a great book! It is about a reporter by the name of Frank Kinsey, who gets smuggled into the secret base of SG-C (Stargate Command) and has seen the Stargate, a dimensional transporter that uses wormholes, in action. Now he wants more answers about the secrecy surrounding the Stargate program and to get to the bottom of the truth by using the First Amendment of the Constitution. But instead of just getting information from SG-C (Stargate Command) about the Stargate program, he got more than what he bargained for. General George Hammond, the commander of SG-C and Colonel Jack O'Neill, a highly decorated and respected SG team leader, decide to take Kinsey on a real mission to show him what the Stargate program is all about and how dangerous the universe can be!
The beginning of this book starts out kind of slow in my opinion because they mainly talked about everyone's jobs at SG-C, but it quickly changes as you read on with lots of action throughout the book. I was used to this pattern because the same thing happens on the T.V show which I watch often. I think the middle of the book is my least favorite part because they use crude language and mainly dealt with preparations for the mission and it did not have much action. The end of the book is my favorite because it is where all the action is, like when the team fights giant moths and tubenecks (a praying mantis type of creature). The action was very intense, it kept me on the edge of my seat and I would not put the book down.
The book is also humorous because O'Neill is always making jokes. It is also a bit confusing sometimes like when someone named Major Dave Morley was telling a story about when his team was attacked and did not mentioned any details about the event.

Book #3 is The First Amendment. Official blurb: "From the very
beginning, the success of the Stargate project has demanded absolute secrecy. But it won't be secret for long.... A hotshot reporter has been brought into the most restricted area of the StarGate base. He's witnessed the Stargate in action, and wants answers. But he'll get more than a headline when Col. Jack O'Neill and his team decide to show him exactly how dangerous the universe can be...."
I did like the first half. The author had obviously done some research; the first chapter of the book is from Hammond's POV has he goes through his morning routine, and I found it mildly interesting. There's also - as the title suggests - a political element that felt like it could have been inspired by 'Secrets'. However, there seemed to be an overabundance of original characters -- too much of them and not enough of SG-1 in a book that's only 198 pages. And - and I'm not exactly sure how else to describe this - it didn't FEEL like Stargate.
There just wasn't that sense of familiarity. The resolution was cliched. And there was also the seemingly inevitable mistakes with Sam's rank <g> This one wasn't bad, but it wasn't good either.

This was the first Stargate SG-1 novel I read, and I must say I was hesitant as the series was new and I wasn`t sure what the novel would be like as Stargate is very different to other series. My hesitation was well-founded in this book. Although the premise was good, a reported, Senator Kinsey`s son no less, infiltrating the SGC and threatening to expose the program, it just didn`t do the premise justice. It was slow starting out and when they finally reached the action (if you can call it that) I found myself getting slightly lost in the descriptions, which seemed a bit contradictory at times. The inter-character relationships were all wrong, even for the 1st season. O`Neill`s dry humour was about the closest to canon character in the book. The aliens themselves seemed a bit more Fantasy than Sci-fi and not really fitting for Stargate. I must say, after reading this book and the reviews of otherws, I`m very hesitant about buying any more of Ashley McConnell`s books. And after recently hearing they`ve discontinued the Stargate SG-1 novel project, I can`t really say I`m surprised. If they started it up with another author, one who knows SG-1 and can capably write it, then I would be alot more likely to buy Stargate novels. But until then, I`ll stick to watching my sizeable collection of Stargate episodes.

'The First Amendment' is a much better read than its risible predecessor 'The Price you Pay', but that said it still has some problems. The storyline is implausible at best, and again it fails to feel like an episode of the TV show should. The characters feel more accurate this time around though and the banter sounds right, at least most of the time . As mentioned by previous reviewers the aliens don't work, they sound corny and so much so that even the characters in the book pointed it out! Some of the situations didn't ring true, especially in the Cheyenne Mountain Complex and SGC, I find it hard to believe that these people are that stupid. Also, the preview of the next book, 'The Morpheus Mandate' served only to put me off buying it, it really was poor. It's quite possible that this author either has little respect for, or scant grasp of, what makes Stargate SG-1 such a great concept and TV show. Maybe another author should step in and show her how it's done...
