    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.

    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.

    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
