Format: Mass Market Paperback
A great story about a struggeling race not far from Earth. They are just like us, but more advanced and were very much more so in the past. During their glory days they managed FLT and came to Earth on a scout expedition landing in Egypt some 5000 years ago. The scout ship was destroyed and the crew were stranded.
I will not tell you what they did and what happened to them because that will reveal too much of the plot. Present day their race are on the brink of being wiped out by a neighbouring race, the Luciens, and their available technology is far from what they had in their glory days. A ship with a 2-man crew in stasis is sent to Earth to try to rediscover the technology of their ancestors. Success of the mission will save their race, failure will result in their doom.
The story switches between present day and look-backs to the adventures of the scout crew
Space opera and egyptologty in a nice mix. A great read.

This is a book filled with some fantastic ideas! Some of the concepts around the technology, its use and development, are inspired. The principal character is believable and you genuinely begin to care for her. There's a scene late on where a foot chase goes bad and each element of the fight is detailed in a credibly chaotic fashion; not at all a "bang, you're dead" Hollywood fight (where the bad guys couldn't hit the broad side of a barn at 20 paces, and the good guys make every shot count) , but instead, a messy, complex business with bystanders falling and innocents suffering. That said, I get the impression this has been written by more than one person, or at least that the editor has only paid attention to selected parts of the book. There are some pretty unbelievable coincidences which detracted from the story for me. How fortuitous for the narrative, for example, that the children of wealthy industrialists just happen to come along at the right time. How unfortunate that a character's introduction to Earth requires a catastrophic (and HUGELY unlikely)collision to give it an imperative edge. When reading, I don't want to be thinking, "Hang on, why did that happen"... or "Thats handy that a completely alien technology can quickly be understood merely by playing around with it". There are rather too many "fortunate" events that drive the story onward. Some of the writing (only some) is clunky and sits apart from other parts of the book - I got a mental image of the writer getting feedback from others but only making corrections in some parts of the book. Its not a bad read, there are some (really) great ideas and some well-thought-out scenes, but the whole thing has a feel of being unpolished and a little poorly edited. I hope the author has another go and I look forward to seeing another tale from her, hopefully she will have sorted the editing and polished her craft.

Not often does a book come along that I wish wouldn't end so soon. Resurrection is one of those. A thoroughly enjoyable read which flits between ancient Egypt visited by an alien race of humans on a survey mission to present day, where the same aliens return to try and find a long lost technology that will hopefully save their race from aggressors.

Some Sci Fi novels can be quite hard work to read whereas this book flows nicely. I'm hoping that there will be more books in the pipeline, even perhaps a sequel to this one. If you haven't read this book, it's really excellent value for money and you will not be disappointed.

Pruit Pax, Sentinel from the planet Herrod, is on a mission to Earth to recover the forgotten technology for a faster than light drive that her ancestors once possessed. Unbeknownst to her, not only is she being followed by agents from Herrod's deadly enemies, the Luciens, but also members of the original survey team sent to Earth almost five thousand years ago are still alive, in stasis, and waiting to be rescued.

The premise of this book is great.. A survey team sent to Earth during the time of the ancient Egyptians becomes stranded when their shuttle is destroyed in an earthquake. Meanwhile their home planet is all but destroyed in an inter-planetary war with the Luciens, and the faster than light technology that they used to reach earth is all but forgotten. In a desperate race to recover this technology, both sides send agents to Earth to try and find any trace of it after almost 5000 years.

To be perfectly honest I found the first third or so of this story quite slow whilst it built the background to the threads set in ancient Egypt and the present day. However, suddenly, just about half way through the pace picks up, the background threads of the various stories come together, and suddenly I found myself really enjoying a rather good science fiction action adventure. The ending was unexpected and rewarding and made persevering with the first part of the book more than worthwhile.

Overall: I would rate the first third as 3 stars, the second third as 4 stars and the ending as 4.5 stars - it really does get progressively better the more you read - so a 4 star average I think. If you find the first part of the book slow, stick with it, it gets a lot better and I found the last third really very enjoyable indeed.
