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.
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.
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.
