Definitely the best of the new Who books I ve sampled I loved the old Virgin BBC 7th 8th Doctor books, but since the show started up again the books started being aimed toward 12 year olds, I ve mostly avoided them because they make me long forambitious days But after finally seeing the 5th series feeling full of enthusiasm, I decided to give the books another try I wanted a book with Rory in it, and chose this one because I enjoyed Una McCormack s ST DS9 books a lot Definitely the best of the new Who books I ve sampled I loved the old Virgin BBC 7th 8th Doctor books, but since the show started up again the books started being aimed toward 12 year olds, I ve mostly avoided them because they make me long forambitious days But after finally seeing the 5th series fe

It is VERY difficult to get me to enjoy a Doctor Who novel with a heavy fantasy base it s simply not my cup of tea That said, it s as if Ms McCormack had read that in my mind and took it as a challenge Dragon shaped spaceships, medieval looking civilizations founded on rational debate and mutual compromise thrown upside down by two con men, an addictive substance to end all addictive substances with another bit of dark psychological analysis thrown in for good measure , and a galactic confli It is VERY difficult to get me to enjoy a Doctor Who novel with a heavy fantasy base it s simply not my cup of tea That said, it s as if Ms McCormack had read that in my mind and took it as a challenge Dragon shaped spaceships, medieval looking civilizations founded on rational debate and mutual compromise thrown upside down by two con men, an addictive substance to end all addictive substances with another bit of dark psychological analysis thrown in for good measure , and a galactic conflict that places this
by hinting that it may be a Doctor Who version of Beowulf main setting is the small city of Geath, ruled by Beol but goes in quite a different direction ending up with a nod or two towards Star Trek with a running subtext of sardonic political commentary This will all be abo
I cannot believe the first book I read in 2018 was a Doctor Who novel I m selling to Half Priced Books. I really enjoyed this It s definitely one of the best of the 11th Doctor novels I ve read There are Doctor Who novels that are good because they seem like they could be episodes and then there are Doctor Who novels that are good because they work really well as novels This was good as a novel Amy, Rory and the Doctor were all characterised well But the thing that really made this was the characters that were unique to the setting Everyone had proper motivations and revelations and theI really enjoyed this It s definitely one of the best of the 11th Doctor novels I ve read There are Doctor Who novels that are good because they seem like they could be episodes and then there are Doctor Who novels that are good because they work really well as novels This was good as a novel Amy, Rory and the Doctor were all characterised well But the thing that really made this was the characters that were unique to the setting Everyone had proper motivations and revel
This is a must read book for any Doctor Who fan Reading this book will not ruin any episodes or give any spoilers for the rest of the series This story presumably takes place after Vampires in Venice, since Rory and Amy are not married yet Rory keeps using that excuse to try to get himself out of Gealth jail More on that later The Doctor takes the engaged couple to Gealth, a preindustrial planet, but all is not as the Doctor remembers The whole city is enad by a golden metal calle This is a must read book for any Doctor Who fan Reading this book will not ruin any episodes or give any spoilers for the rest of the series This story presumably takes place after Vampires in Venice, since Rory and Amy are not married yet Rory keeps using that excuse to try to get himself out of Gealth jail More on that later The Doctor takes the engaged couple to Gealth, a preindustrial planet, but all is not as the Doctor remembers The whole city is enad by a golden metal called, well, Enam
This book really shouldn t have worked The primary deus ex machina is a gold like metal that apparently has the power to reproduce itself when worked _and_ warp people s minds with avarice But, the characters were fun, and the setup was well done, and the warring alien antagonists were sufficiently unique and entertainingly differentiated that the net effect was 3 star goodness.It s not the greatest of Doctor Who stories, but it ll scratch that itch between new episodes As an aside, I bough This book really shouldn t have worked The primary deus ex machina is a gold like metal that apparently has the power to reproduce itself when worked _and_ warp people s minds with avarice But, the characters were fun, and the setup was well done,
I don t know why this wasn t an exciting story, but it never got me enthusiastic It s about a world seduce with a metal called Enamour and the repercussions this love for gold has on it s citizens an old race comes back to get the metal and maybe there will be a war about it or not I don t think the author got the voice of the 11th Doctor right and I know she s able too because she got it right in The Way Through the Wood and I warmly recommend that one , it s just most of the time when I don t know why this wasn t an exciting story, but it never got me enthusiastic It s about a world seduce with a metal called Enamour and the repercussions this love for gold has on it s citizens an old race comes back to get the metal and maybe there will be a war about it or not I don t think the author got the v
