SG-1 must rescue an enigmatic, one-of-a-kind creature before Apophis can capture it for his own ends.

The enemy within ...

When the Tok'ra ask SG-1 to save a tortured creature from the clutches of Apophis, how can they refuse? But the Mujina is no ordinary being -- devoid of face or form, it draws its identity from those around it. All things to all people, it is a creature with terrible potential -- for both good and evil.

Their pursuit of the Mujina takes the team to a nightmarish world where human wickedness is at its worst -- and there, the creature finds its home. Captured by the ethnically pure Corvani, Colonel O'Neill's team must confront the planet's insane leader, the Raven King, as well as a more familiar and insidious enemy.

In this gripping adventure, award-winning author Steven Savile takes SG-1 on an unforgettable journey into the heart of darkness ...
