The Invisible Woman must enlist the aid of the Silver Surfer to help her find and rescue her teammates - but it isn't Blastaar they need to be rescued from! Blastaar has brought the Fantastic Four to his home to ask for their help against a threat to the Negative Zone: Prodigion, a destroyer of worlds akin to Galactus, the planet devourer to whom the Silver Surfer was once Herald. Seeing a chance to atone for his past actions in Galactus's service, the Surfer joins the Fantastic Four in their attempt to stop Prodigion - but is Prodigion really a Negative Zone version of Galactus, or is the truth far more deadly than even the world's greatest heroes can imagine?...

Fantastic Four: Redemption of the Silver Surfer Reviews
Read just like a comic book. Moved quickly with good action
Occassionally I like to read something quick and easy -- something in which I don't have to spend a lot of time learning about the characters -- perhaps this is why I enjoy reading books set in the StarTrek universe and/or the comic book universe -- the characters have already been defined.However, I have to admit to a bias -- I've never enjoyed the stories of the Fantastic Four (comic book heroes) which take place in outer-space (or other worlds). I can't quite define it. And I know it seems strange, considering my propensity toward sci-fi stories, but the stories in outer-space never appealed to me. They always seem contrived, and this novel was no exception.The extra-dimensional foe here, seemed a novelty for no reason. The foe was in no danger of attacking Earth, so the FF involvement was totally unnecessary. The Silver Surfer's appearance seemed fine, but his "falling in love" with the new protagonist seemed out of character, and yet a major plot point.I just didn't but into this story. Not recommended.
As a comic book and Fantastic Four fan, I enjoyed this book. An interesting premise has the fabulous four, along with the Silver Surfer, joining forces with Blastaar to combat a Galactus-like menace that is threatening the Negative Zone.The story is well-written and the personalities and actions of the characters remains in line with their comic book roots, while allowing for the natural expansion that a prose work permits. The action is well-described, leaving no ambiguity as to what is occurring in any given scene. It's like a well-written script for a comic book epic.My only real complaint is the lack of depth and background in the story of the Galactus-type character.Overall, a recommended read for fans of the Fantastic Four.
I love the Silver Surfer. By far he is my favorite super-hero, so I was very interested in reading this Marvel Universe novel. I was however a little bit disappointed with the way the Surfer was portrayed in this tale. I feel that it did not match my take on the Sky Rider of the Spaceways. I also did not like the character Prodion; I feel that Friedman missed a great chance to create a truly remarkable entity. Still the story was worth reading, with the Fantastic Four, Blastaar and the Surfer in the Negative Zone; you know interesting things will develop. The super villain Blastaar was perfectly written.
The Silver Surfer is a lonely fellow. No place to call home, no friends, no Silver Surferette to rub his feet. It's no wonder he's so moody. Redemption takes him to the Negative Zone, but even there he can't catch a break. No matter where he goes, there he must go alone!Full review here: http://superheronovels.com/2010/10/24...
Extra 1/2 star.
