Book Description

“When summer falls, the Lord of Winter will arise...”

In the seaside village of Watchcombe, young Kate is determined to make the most of her last week of summer holiday. But when she discovers a mysterious painting entitled ‘The Lord of Winter’ in a charity shop, it leads her on an adventure she never could have planned. Kate soon realises the old seacape, painted long ago by an eccentric local artist, is actually a puzzle. And with the help of some bizarre new acquaintances – including a museum curator's magical cat, a miserable neighbour, and a lonely boy – she plans on solving it.

And then, one morning Kate wakes up to a world changed forever. For the Lord of Winter is coming – and Kate has a very important decision to make.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent little book 29 April 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
For something that's a throw-away spin-off, this is really rather good. Well written, in character, and cleverly paced and plotted.

5.0 out of 5 stars A fun 1950s style read 6 April 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Being a fan of all things Doctor Who, I just had to get this little e-book as soon as I found out it was available.

Set in a quiet seaside town in the 1950s, this little book harks back to a simpler time. Following the adventures of a young girl called Kate who has just moved to Watchcombe this book has a very Famous Five/Secret Seven feel to it.

Featuring a talking cat, a mysterious museum, a crazy curator and snow in summer, the book is a couple of hours worth of easy and fun reading. It is easily accessible and suitable for younger fans of Doctor Who as well as oldies like myself.

The story is fast moving and exciting and very in keeping with the world of Doctor Who. Even though ostensibly written by Amy Pond (Williams) it does not feature any well known Dr Who characters (at least not by name!) - It does have that feeling about it though that there are clues hidden in the story if you look hard enough, even though these may well only become obvious after we have seen more of this season of Dr Who.

Overall, an enjoyable little read that adds depth to the series without being full of obvious spoilers.

Well worth the asking price.

4.0 out of 5 stars A cute book 11 May 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Of course this was going to be released as a real book and it does make a for a cute story mixing a Doctor Who adventure with a Enid Blyton-esque adventure story, the pay off was good though and yes chapter eleven makes you cry.
My favorite bits however where the reminders of Amy's modern day life with a little bit about digital cameras and a couple of other references that don't seem right in the world of Summer Falls.
If your a fan of Doctor Who I would say you should certainly buy Summer Falls.

4.0 out of 5 stars Twists and turns abound... 4 April 2013
By Quills
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The tantalising glimpse of Summer Falls in the recent episode of Doctor Who captivated the attention of many eagle-eyed viewers, many of whom realised that the author was, ostensibly, the much-missed Amy Pond writing under her married name. I approached this book with great anticipation, eager to devour every clue Pond had laid out within for the Doctor. However, despite reading it twice now I'm as much in the dark as I ever was. Fortunately, the DW team (written by James Goss) have produced a witty and charming little novella nonetheless, full of atmospheric twists and turns that are more than able to stand alone.

The mystery begins with Kate's discovery of a strange painting and an even stranger neighbour who seems to know far more about it than he lets on - and though not explicitly stated, I'm sure anyone who reads this will be able to discern that particular character's true identity, for the author has perfectly captured his quirks and mannerisms.

Though only a quick read written in a style reminiscent of the Famous Five novels I loved as a child, I greatly enjoyed it and will certainly be reading it again tonight in what will doubtless be a futile effort to weasel out any clues as to what we have coming over the next few episodes on screen. I'm convinced they're there after the little tidbit Matt Smith let slip in a recent interview, but perhaps they'll only become clear when looking back. Regardless, a super little read even without the added layer of mystery of its place in the Whoniverse.

Not to bad for a random story linked to Dr who , but at least I now know why Clara cried in chapter 11 I also liked the subtle hints that barnabus May have indeed been the Dr

An extremely clever story, mysterious characters, good plot.
Lots of hint for Who fans to pick up on and put two and two together and make five! I just wanted it to be longer!
