This book is set between Series One and Series Two. It has all the familiar characters from the first season. The story is a follow up to one of the more exciting episodes, that sees the crew encounter an old enemy.The book is superb and amazingly accurate in re-capturing the true nature of the series and of the characters. This book is in a league of its own. Also checkout 'The Forsaken'

As anybody who watched the season 1 episode "End of Eternity" knows, Balor's asteroid reforms after being blasted to pieces, thus paving the way for a possible return. In Resurrection he does indeed return to Alpha. Without giving anything away, it's a roller coaster of a ride for everyone, but especially so for Commander Koenig. Victor Bergman and Helena Russell also play an important part in getting to the bottom of the problem that is Balor and try to find a way to get rid of him once and for all.
Balor still wants to prove his point that a life without pain doesn't make you appreciate it, but the question is to who does he want to prove it. To the Alphans, to himself or to the people of his planet that cast him adrift in space.
It's a well written book and the character come alive on the page in this character driven story.

This was a short but interesting story which was a sequel to the Space:1999 television episode End of Eternity. A strange choice as this wasn't a particularly good episode as the main protagonist (Balor) was played by a certain Peter Bowles (of To the Manor Born fame) dressed in outrageous platform shoes and enormous black flared trousers stomping around Moonbase Alpha killing people.

This sequel was interesting but equally ridiculous and sort of introduced the idea of space-zombies to the Space:1999 canon, which is never a good thing.

If you are going to buy this, rememember two things, a) it is rather pricey and b) it is rather short, think of the original Target Doctor Who novels and you'll realise how short this novel is.

Otherwise if that hasn't put you off, then I recommend you buy this book for a daft but enjoyable short read.

I have Eternity Unbound an oversized paper back that includes a sequel and a prequel to the year one story End of Eternity (Peter Bowles in ridiculous platform shoes brilliant) Resurrection forms the last third of my book it is a terrific fast paced read the characterisations are spot on all the voices ring true to what was seen and established in the year one series.
