Mass Effect: Resurrection

By Shei B. Kroeker

Action / Scifi

Prologue

In the year 2148, explorers on Mars discovered the remains of an ancient spacefaring civilization. In the decades that followed, these mysterious artifacts revealed startling new technologies, enabling travel to the furthest stars. The basis for this incredible technology was a force that controlled the very fabric of space and time.

They called it the greatest discovery in human history.

The civilizations of the galaxy call it...


The Aftermath Of the Reaper War

  Commander Shepard had accomplished the impossible. A devastating, destructive energy blasted through every Mass Relay from the Sol System, to the Perseus Veil, and everywhere in between. It destroyed every synthetic life form: Reaper, geth, artificial intelligence, and virtual. The damage was unfathomable…but it was not irreparable.

  For the ten years that followed, the galaxy repaired itself. Every species involved in the war effort continued to ban together to restore some semblance of peace and stability throughout the Milky Way.

  It was also a time to remember those who had fallen:

  Gunnery Chief Ashley Williams of the SSV Normandy SR1 gave her life on Virmire, staying behind to detonate a nuke and destroy an illicit krogan breeding plant. Over half of the Alliance Fifth Fleet sacrificed themselves to save the Citadel Council during the attack by the Reaper vanguard Sovereign. Later, half of Commander Shepard's crew was decimated by a collector attack, amongst them, Navigator and XO Charles Pressly. A few years later, the salarian doctor Mordin Solus died while selflessly administering the genophage cure for the krogan through the sabotaged Shroud on Tuchanka. The drell assassin Thane Krios thwarted a Cerberus assassin during the coup attempt against the Citadel Council. Despite his weakened state due to Kepral's Syndrome, Krios staved Kai Leng off, though mortally wounded in the fight. He died later from blood loss and complications from his disease. Later, the geth platform Legion sacrificed itself to give other geth true awareness. Unfortunately, most of the quarian fleet was decimated by Shepard's choice to allow the geth this upgrade. Saddened, Tali'Zorah vas Normandy prepared to throw herself off a cliff, but a last minute effort by the commander saved her. Rannoch was still reclaimed, even though the population suffered. Then, at the end of all things, Shepard discovered the catalyst within the Citadel. He chose the destruction of the Reapers, and as a consequence, the end of all synthetic life forms. He died in the final explosion. It was finally over. There was peace.

  But like all things, peace cannot last forever. As the galaxy struggles to rebuild their civilization, they remain oblivious to the watchful eyes of a sinister mind. In the darkest reaches of the galaxy, remnants of a defunct organization rise from the ashes of their self-built pyre. Seeking to continue their founder's dreams, Cerberus has been resurrected under new leadership and begins its new crusade.

Karl12: This is a very unusual sci-fi mystery. I enjoyed the suspense which was present throughout the story. I loved how I never knew what to expect from the characters. This made the story thrilling and made me suspicious of everything and everyone. You have a great style of writing – one which captiva...

Jasmine Chow: As I read this story, I was reminded some what of Terry Pratchett, especially some descriptions of politics and economics. The sci-fic setting is quite intriguing. Writing style is quite lovely and grew on me slowly. I was also slightly reminded of Mark Twain, especially his book A Connecticut Ya...

Kelsey Miller: Page turner set in a gritty future. Loads of flavor and depth that makes the pages fly by until like me you are at the end of the book wanting more!The world is developed to the point it begs more stories set in this harsh reality. More adventures from Daryl and thr crew.

Melissa Davis: Interesting book and an enjoyable read. Had something different to it, that made me glad I picked it up.

heavyreader: great scifi novels but needs a better spell checker (check auto-substitution level) and grammar checker!!! otherwise, ready for mass market publishing!!

ronaldpolk: I can honestly say that I truly enjoyed this story. Yes there were times I thought to put it down and start another, but some of the characters called me back. The pace was appropriately slow in some places and engaging in others. I related to Steve and Ron, all characters had just the right amou...

cassandrab: Delightful SciFi (for a change)! I am not a SciFi fan: mostly the genre is far too dystopic for me. This book (written by a high-school friend) is, on the other hand, generally upbeat. Yes, Earth's future is threatened. But Earth has a chance to plan a response. And (spoiler alert) ultimately win...

ericaporamoralcine: La trama es muy interesante y original y eso ya dice muchísimo cuando todos tratan de triunfar con ideas ya trilladas.No puedo opinar en detalle sobre la gramática, porque a pesar de entender el inglés a la perfección, la falta de uso en cuanto a lectura y diálogo hacen que me maneje bastante mal...

263Adder: Okay so I adore this story. I only knocked one star off plot for historical inaccuracies because I'm a bit of a stickler for that. The ending broke my heart though, considering you already changed history couldn't you (SPOILER) change it a bit more and have them together!!!! I want an alternative...

Grace Mendoza: It took me around 3-4 days to finish reading this story and it feels like I'm watching a movie while reading this. Everything is so eloquently written and this MUST be published as a book and turn to a movie. There are minute spelling problems BUT nothing to bothered about. Hands down to the amaz...

taosgw74: If this is the authors first attempt at writing, I'm floored. I was engrossed in the plot from the get go.

Dina Husseini: It was a great hook. I do not like reading scifi because they end up being like all the rest but this one kept me wanting more.

Michael Simms: It took me a few chapters to get into the plot and connect with the characters involved. that said, the plot is well thought out and sticking with it was worthwhile to see how it panned out in the end.
