Featured Book Review: Sun Bleached Winter 0000
I admire how the author, D. Robert Grixit introduces the characters in this book and how he prepares his readers for what to expect.

Resurrection - Arwen Elys Dayton Horror Book Review
Horror books Review
A young woman, Pruit Pax, leaves her homeworld of Herrod and heads off in search of the lost technological secret of faster than light travel in order to save her people from an alien threat. Her hunt takes her to Earth, where a survey crew were sent some five thousand years ago to do a cultural study. The survey crew landed in ancient Egypt and had some interesting effects on the local peoples. Five-thousand years later, Pruit heads to modern Egypt in search of the Eschless Funnel…the technology that makes faster than light travel possible.
Resurrection was an interesting book. I wouldn’t exactly call it an easy page-turner because at times the story seemed to barely plod through, but the plot picks at several different points and the ending is reasonably satisfying.
The real draw for readers is the author’s interesting take on Egyptian history. Her hypothesis as to how the peoples of ancient Egypt were affected by a completely alien encounter hits just the right note to ring true and seem reasonable…if a bit far-fetched.
Overall, despite moving a bit slowly at times, this story is worth picking up, especially if you enjoy fiction that, at least in part, centers around historical events.
