this book is better than the cover suggests,
This review is from: Resurrection (Mass Market Paperback)
I looked at the cover of this book, saw pyramids and crystals and thought "von Daniken meets stargate". Despite this, I thought I'd give it a go, and it turned out to be a well written and well thought out story.
5000 years ago a survey team from another human world came to Earth and landed in Egypt. Their home world was for all intents and purposes destroyed in their absence and a string of unfortunate events left them stranded on earth.
5000 years later, the people left on their home planet desperatly need the technology that allowed the survey team to get to earth at faster than light speed. So they send their own team to retreive it....things get interesting on earth from that point onwards.
This is just a brief outline and does not do the story justice, you'd have to read it to see what I mean. But, if you enjoy stargate you may enjoy this new twist on ancient history.

Clever and decent of you not to give too much away! Let me tell you, this book will knock you on your keister! It is packed with detail that, like the author said, cannot be regurgitated in a little review. LOVED this. Another series of short books I just wrapped up is the Crisis Trilogy The Crisis Artifact (The Crisis Trilogy), The Chaos Pendulum (The Crisis Trilogy), and The Catastrophe Scroll (The Crisis Trilogy). These were short, engaging reads that feature mysterious otherworldly pyramids and unexplainable phenomena that is lined out wonderfully by the end. But you HAVE to read all three to get the full impact. That said, I'm starting on Sovereign's Hold now, just to see what else Arwen Elys Dayton is capable of.
