Third in a series, but it stands alone, if you don't mind it referring back to previous stories, and having original characters taking a major role. This is also tied in heavily with the events of the "Comes A Horseman" episodes of Highlander, so you should see those before you read this. Which basically means that this is a more Highlander-oriented crossover than Sentinel. I'm not sure about this story. It was okay, but I sort of felt there was a lot of "information dumps" going on, a lot of people explaining things to different people repeatedly, I'm not sure. Also I felt it was a little sudden, the mutual attraction between two of the parties, or, at least, not a problem that the mutual attraction happened so fast, but that it developed into something so strong that fast, seemed unbelievable.

Summary: This is a Xover between Stargate and The Sentinel. When Blair Sandburg unknowingly shows a member of the SGC a picture of Egyptian-like ruins found in a dig in Peru, it causes an avalanche of circumstances, which forces Jack O'Neill to head a mission to Peru.
When I downloaded this story to read, I didn't recognise the nom-de-plume, so it was a pleasant surprise when I realized that this was an author I already knew and liked. What wasn't a surprise was that this was a good story.
Things to like: a) the fleshing out of a minor Tok'ra character b) another perspective on the Tok'ra seen by an OFC (don't go running, she's not a Mary-Sue) c) alien cultures d) mysteries, spying, action, kidnapping, derring-do e) fascinating origin myths f) good characterisation of Our Heroes, whether that be Jim, Jack, Blair or Daniel.
