"The Morpheus Factor" by Ashley McConnell

Review of "The Morpheus Factor" by Ashley McConnell. This is a Stargate SG-1 book. Since this information is not on amazon, the backcover of the book says, "On the world classified by the Stargate Project as P4V-837, the SG-1 team encounters an environment hospitable to humans, and the Kayeechi, a race of seemingly friendly natives. But after a few hours spent with their hosts, the team find themselves hallucinating - each member seeing a completely different landscape than the others - both while dreaming and awake. The longer the team remains guests of the Kayeechi, the darker their dreams become. SG-1 have become unwilling participants in a brutal conflict - and their subconscious minds have become the most deadly weapon of all..."

This isn't really how I would describe the plot b/c there are quite a few things inaccurate about that description. Maybe this is the blurb the author submitted as a story idea before it was written? Anyway. If you read the amazon reviews, you'll see that there are quite a few obvious mistakes in the book, and that it doesn't seem very well written. These are both valid criticisms. This reads like a mediocre fan fiction at best. If you're a die-hard SG-1 fan, go ahead and collect this used, otherwise you can skip this one.
