Resurrection

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.

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.

    Story
    "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.

    Story
    "Speculative Fiction, Is the improbable...probable?"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Yes, with caveats. There are some amazing flights of fancy here. A reader will only get into this story if they are very willing to suspend disbelief. Once that hurdle is passed, it is quite a ride. Its the whole spacemen helped the Egyptians build the Pyramids thing, a subject that I find compelling. However, getting back to that suspend disbelief thing, characters in this book are not only capable of living in suspended animation for 5,000 years, but an implanted tracer bug also works for that extended 5,000 year period. When you think about it; Wow, wow, wow. I should also mention, guys, that this book could be categorized as chick-lit


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Resurrection?

    Making granite out of chemistry set chemicals, The captain and his wife becoming Egyptian gods.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    I think the narrator did a superb job.


    Did Resurrection inspire you to do anything?

    No, just basically rewrite my view of history from 5000 BC forward.


    Any additional comments?

    The Mechanic is probably the most irredeemably bad meanie who ever graced a page of fiction.

    "OK but not the best I have ever read"

    The story line was a good one but seemed to lack dimension that would have made it better. Not shore if there will be another in this series, but I would buy it, just to see what happen to everyone. If you are one of those who liked The Lost Fleet and The Saga of the Seven Suns you too will find this one lacking but you will still enjoy it, it will just not be one of your favorite.

    "Good, not great. Entertaining, not captivating"

    This book was worth the listen, but is, in the end, forgettable. It was entertaining, and I wouldn't say that I was ever bored while listening to it, but there are much better books out there. It was, however, an interesting take on the pyramids and the Egyptian mythology.

    "Great Start"

    The story could have benefited with some more time given to the conclusion. It was as if the author lost interest towards the end. It developed well and at a steady pace but the conclusion seemed to be wrapped up in relatively few words.

    "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?

    nope


    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.

    "New Frontier"
    What made the experience of listening to Resurrection the most enjoyable?

    The creativity of the author and the presentation and talent of the narrator. The narrator is the catalyst, it that person doesn't pull you in and keep you interested. Then you only bland noise irritating your ears.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Resurrection?

    One of the most memorable moments was the technology used to build and create the stone.The


    Which character – as performed by Kate Rudd – was your favorite?

    The books main character Pruitt. She brought life to her and all of the characters. She preformed with emotion and feeling for each character.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I typically listen in the car or working out in two hour spurts. But, I could definitely listen to it on a long twelve hour drive


    Any additional comments?

    I've listened to dozens and dozens of audible books of all genres. With the exception of Si-Fi. This was my first Si-Fi book and it is definitely in my top five of all the books I've listen too. The author, with the help of the narrator made it feel at times that I ,was walking the sands of time in Egypt going from millennium to present day. I really enjoyed listening to it. I will definitely listen to it again.
