Publisher's Summary

Five thousand years ago, the Kinley built a ship capable of traveling faster than light. It carried a group of scientists to a small, distant planet - a primitive place called Earth. Its mission was peaceful observation. But when the ship was destroyed, the Kinley crew found themselves stranded in ancient Egypt, participants in the pageant of life in the time of the Pharaohs. They buried remnants of their technology deep beneath the desert and sent a last desperate message home….
Five thousand years later, the Kinley homeworld hovers on the brink of extinction. An enemy that nearly obliterated their race has risen again - now with the ability to destroy them for good. A lone Kinley soldier named Pruit is sent on a desperate mission: to follow the ancient beacon back to Earth and recover the secrets to faster-than-light travel. It is their last hope. Technology that once allowed them to cross vast reaches of space might allow them to outrun their enemies and find a safe world to call their own. But Pruit’s mission will be harder than she can imagine. Her quest will draw her enemies after her and will awaken ancient foes on Earth. As she gets closer to what she seeks, she will find each adversary willing to risk everything to stop her, each hoping to steal the knowledge for themselves.The rivals will meet in modern-day Egypt and their struggle will alter the fate of worlds.

Fast Paced Adventure in an Expertly Crafted World

I'll start by saying I absolutely loved it, and I'm shocked that this only Dayton's second novel. Her diction and writing style are indicative of a much more established author.

I'm usually leery of novels that involve multiple time lines, but I've got to say Dayton pulled it off beautifully. Through a series of flashbacks Dayton quickly sets up the premise for the book. From then on the series mainly focuses on the present day while periodically visiting characters 5,000 years gone. Once the common link between the time lines is established both proceed to tell their respective stories in a way that leads you yearning for the next chapter.

My only complaint is that the ending seemed a little rushed. And while all of the main plot lines were resolved there was room in universe she created for more. I hope Dayton chooses to revisit the world she created.

I've listened to a few books now where Kate Rudd was the reader and while I've loved her performances in the past, most noteably Debris: The Veiled Worlds, I was initially a little put off during the first chapter. I can't say whether the story was so good that I ignored what I had initially found displeasing, or Kate grew into the characters. Either way, I found overall that it was an excellent performance and I was glad that I got past the initial distaste.

Be cautious! you might waste time and money

Would you try another book from Arwen Elys Dayton and/or Kate Rudd?

I will never try books from Arwen Elys Dayton again.

What was most disappointing about Arwen Elys Dayton’s story?

It is a Micheal bay transformer like plot as well as everyone acts with teenagers' intelligent level. Nothing is really serious about the story.

Which scene was your favorite?


Do you think Resurrection needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

not for me, thx.

Any additional comments?

To large extent, this is a teenage play compared with the sophisticated thoughts behind Orson Scott Card's Ender's series. Both fictional worlds have another sentient spices, but nothing in common. On the other side, people who enjoy Hunger game series may find this "resurrection" very satisfied as well.
