I sometimes worry when I start to read a novel based on a series that I love, but in this case I needn't have. I fell in love with this novel from the very first few pages just as I had with the first episode of the show. Each character is well written. The jokes are there, the mickey taking and the action. The great story telling and the descriptions from the gory scenes to the storm riddled scenes makes you feel like you are there with the characters. I'm so glad the the character of Ianto was written for as I think he is underused in the series, but he gets a bit to do in Another Life and I hope he is written more for in future novels as I know that he is a character that many fans of the show like. If you like the show you'll love this novel. I couldn't put it down. From start to finish it was great a real little gem.

This is a real treat for fans of Torchwood even if, like me, you've been disappointed by TV tie-ins in the past. First of all, Anghelides seems to have actually WATCHED the series and captures the characters perfectly. We get Jack's flirtiness, Gwen's overbearing "I'M THE ONLY ONE WITH A HEART!", Owen's slightly-scary letchiness, Tosh's glorious techno-geekiness and, of course, Ianto's gorgeousness. The other books in the series don't make enough of Jack's interest in Ianto (indeed, Ianto doesn't feature much in the others) but this one does... You also get a real feel for Jack's damaged psyche and his willingness to sacrifice anything for the greater good. Pure gold.

This is the first book of three hardcovers with stand alone stories. They are beautiful - the artwork is impressive and when you place the books together, the spine is showing a group photo of the characters.

If you have never watched Torchwood, it might be a good idea to read this book first in order to find out if this series is your cup of tea. It gives all the information you need, including what Torchwood is, the characters and what kind of stories to expect. The author knows Torchwood very well and the characterizations are very accurate. The book takes place early in the series which is reflected in numerous ways. I think also people who never watched Torchwood can read this book without any problems.

I see Torchwood as something between Star Trek`s Section 31 and "the department" of Starfleet Intelligence, led by Admiral Nechayev in the main Star Trek book universe, that is dealing with missions that push what is legal, what is moral, what is acceptable to its limits and sometimes beyond. When does the end justify the means when it is about protecting Earth from alien threats? And when, there is the next question, namely what is still justifiable under such circumstances? Torchwood is not an illegal organization and although what it is about is a secret, they are called to investigate suspicious murders or other events that are unusual. Their task is to find answers, stop threats and at the same time, keeping alien presences secret and collect alien technology they find. The Prime Minister knows all about Torchwood but how much further that knowledge goes, is unknown.

Torchwood is a spin-off of Doctor Who, a British SF series, and that this story takes place in Britain is also obvious when reading this book.

Format: Hardcover
TORCHWOOD (spin-off of Doctor Who) is an intensely thrilling television series that cleverly combines sci-fi and otherworldly aliens within a thoroughly modern, twenty-first century setting. This specialist secret organization, hidden away from prying eyes beneath Cardiff, is led by close friend of the Doctor and time traveler himself; Captain Jack Harkness. As foreign creatures, strange spirits and deadly demons attack the UK, it is Torchwood's duty to protect the Earth from outer-space invasions. Having fallen in love with the television series (complete with a cast of fantastic actors including John Barrowman and Eve Myles), I was keen to delve back into this creation via the page. This book certainly didn't disappoint as it captured the tension between the characters, their personalities and the sinister supernatural ambience through the page perfectly!

*Short Synopsis:

Thick black clouds are blotting out the skies over Cardiff, as twenty-four inches of rain falls in twenty-four hours. The city center's drainage system collapses. The capital's homeless are being murdered, their mutilated bodies left lying in the soaked streets around the Blaidd Drwg nuclear facility. Tracked down by TORCHWOOD the killer calmly drops eight stories to his death, but the killings continue. Their investigations lead Captain Jack Harkness, Gwen Cooper and Toshiko Sato to a monster in a bathroom, a mystery at an enemy base and a hunt for stolen nuclear fuel rods. Meanwhile, Owen Harper goes missing from the hub, when a game in second reality leads him to an old girlfriend...

Something is coming, forcing its way through the rift, straight into Cardiff Bay.

By Paul Tapner TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 27 Jun. 2010
Format: Hardcover
An original novel based on the tv show Torchwood, telling a story not seen on the tv screen.

It runs for two hundred and fifty three pages - of slightly smaller print than is usual for this range of books - and it being Torchwood means there is a little bit of strong language and some adult situations.

This came out around the same time as the first season of the tv show, so this contains all the staples of that time. Tosh and Owen not yet inching towards a relationship. Ianto not having much of a character yet. And Gwen being bothered by not being able to tell Rhys about her job.

The story involves an investigation into a series of murders. And despite Torchwood apprenhending the killer pretty quickly things don't then stop. The narrative flashes between this and Owen getting hooked on an online game where he happens to meet a former girlfriend and this leading him into some possibly unwise actions. Plus there are occasional chapters describing the actions in the third person of people who seem to be posssessed.

All of these seemingly disparate storylines do come together in the end, although it's to tell a storyline of aliens and possession and the rift that is capable but nothing desperately original or anything we haven't seen or read before.

However a high stakes climax that leaves the city in danger plus a few strong character moments during this do make it a more gripping read that in could have been otherwise.

A slightly above average read and worthwhile enough for fans of the show.
