    more from this reviewer

    intelligent but complex science fiction

    The Kinley sends their first faster than the speed of light craft with a live crew to conduct a survey of planet Earth. The ship Champion lands on the planet at what would be local time as 2601 BC. However, while the Champion successfully completes its trip, the feral Lucien attacks and devastates the Kinley, isolating the Champion from its home. <P>Five millenniums later, the Kinley continues the slow process of recovering all they lost during the Lucien debacle. However, the Lucien do not sit idly by and allow their enemy to regain its former foothold and perhaps more. They plan to eradicate the Kinley, only keeping genetic data in case a specimen or two needs development to serve the master race. Now the Kinley has thirty-five years to find a savior and they¿re only viable hope is a champion from a ship they have not heard a peep from in thousands of years. <P> RESURRECTION is an intelligent but complex science fiction novel filled with action. The story line is faster than the Champion was and reminiscent in many ways of Battlestar Gallactica. The characters are an interesting group, but especially fascinating in a sort of Spock way is Pruit. Arwen Elys Dayton provides genre fans with a strong novel that will send the audience including this reviewer to read her previous tale SOVEREIGN'S HOLD <P>Harriet Klausner

    Revel in Resurrection

    It is a rare story that keeps one awake reading all night. Dayton lures us into a world that is so skillfully based on truth that it could easily be real, that moves so quickly and intelligently that it becomes vital to stay alert and, alas, hungrily turning the pages. With characters that you care about immediately and vivid action sequences, this is one of those books that draws you in and holds you there. One walks about wondering how Pruit is doing and what is happening with the Eschless Funnel... right here, in the real world... hey, it could happen! This book is all at once a grand escape as well as a peak into something much bigger than ourselves. Don't bother making any appointments. It's impossible to put down.

    Sci Fi for today

    This is a well-conceived story that unfolds in a way that kept me struggling¿successfully¿to keep control of the pieces of the puzzle. Dayton uses the Sci-Fi setting to offer a welcome fresh viewpoint about some of the mysteries of ancient Earth. It is set in a believable interpersonal web, with complex motives and loyalties, and it is easy to become a participant in the unfolding action. More than a fantasy because of its development of a theory about existing things on Earth, the novel will well reward your time and effort. Warmly recommended.

    My first review

    I¿ve never written a review before, but I loved this book so much I thought I¿d give it a try. Resurrection is a great book! The lead character, Pruit is a badass hotty! This epic story tells of her mission to save her race, the Kinley from extinction. The author also gives some fascinating theories of how the great pyramids came to be. Jumping between the past and present, an awesome tale is told. One of my favorite things about this book is Arwen¿s distinctive detail of the two main races, the Kinley, and the warlike Lucien who are trying to wipe out the Kinley for good. Each having it¿s own philosophy and intriguing technological developments. Some of the things Arwen comes up with are wild. Resurrection is one of those books you can¿t help but to think, 'This should be a movie!¿

    Fascinating sci-fi

    The author weaves an action-packed tale following threads 5000 years apart -- in outer space, on Earth in Egypt in the time of the Pharos (including how the pyramids were built), and in present time. What is most amazing to me is how she uses real history and real science as a foundation -- she takes great care to utilize well-researched facts as the jumping off point for her imagination. The result is an enlightened, highly textured, almost photorealistic world. I've already read Resurrection twice!
