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.

I have always been a massive stargate fan from the beginning, so expected this book to be something it isn't. The actually story needs time to take off and then this is ruined by the blatant flaws. Sam Carter seemed to change rank three time on the same page and you can't quite decide which team is coming through to block Morley (SG-3 or SG-9). Even the smaller characters changed rank. I think the business with NORAD sat on top of the SGC was just silly, McConnel should have done a lot more work before trying to sell us this.

This book was a real disappointment. There were several scenes throughout the book that were not realistic and others that were incredibly boring, such as the entire first chapter which focused on Hammond's trip to the SGC. Do we really need to know Hammond's history? There were also some blatant mistakes such as Carter being referred to as a Captain and a Major in the same chapter. I hope that they find a new author to continue this book series because McConnell is not doing the show justice.

After reading The Price You Pay, the first of the Stargate SG-1 books, and wading through the horrid errors and conflicts with the tv series that plauged it, I was rather weary of reading this second story from the same author. However, as soon as I began reading, it became apparent that Ms McConnell did learn from her first effort, and is trying not to make the same mistake twice. This book is much more firmly placed in the mythology of the show, and the various allusions to past events were right on the money. The storyline, involving a journalist stumbling on the Stargate program and the search for a missing SG team, is much faster paced than that of the last book, and in my opinion, much more interesting. This is an outstanding story that has totally renewed my faith in the SG-1 novels, and I'm greatly looking forward to book 3.

I think that this is a very good story. It had a lot of action, suspense, and serious moments that I found enjoyable and entertaining. I disagree with the people who think that is a boring or depressing book. It's not. I think that is well-written and I think all fans of the series Stargate SG-1 would enjoy reading this book as I did.
