Notes: This is the fifth book in the "Daniel of Abydos" series that started in Translations, Diplomacy, Brotherhood, and Archaeology. Even more than the first four novels in the series, knowledge of the events in canon will be very helpful in reading this. Mostly, this means seasons 5-7 (and a bit of early season 8). Anything related to the Ascension/Ancients arc(s), including seasons 8-10 and Ark of Truth, may be referenced or hinted at (and spoiled), as well.
Also, because several hundred thousands of words have passed since I first started planning this installment, below is a bullet-point summary of the previous four AU novels for those who want it, with emphasis on events and facts that are different from canon and are important setup for this one. Alternatively, if you prefer, below that are several snippets from the previous books that do the same thing.
Cheers!( Quick summary of books 1-4 )
