A Satisfying Conclusion
on 27 January 2000
Although many people have already been mourning the end of the New Adventures, this book acts as a showcase of what precisely what we will be missing.
Although not possessing the sheer scope of, for example, 'Where Angels Fear', 'Twilight' rewards the careful reader with intelligent references to the past NAs, not just the books most immediately concerned with the current arc, but right back into the Doctor-endowed novels. The characters are recognisably Benny and her now obligatory team of misfits, ex-husbands and carefully unnamed two-hearted species. It's heartening in itself to see that the authors have carefully taken into consideration all the character progression of the last year, but not allowed them to overtake the plot.
The plot itself was always going to be difficult, concluding as it does the year-long story arc concerning the Gods of Dellah and their forcible removal. The plan is audacious and action-packed in equal measure, and fittingly not achieved without some cost. Hopefully, there are enough avenues left to any future authors who wish to resurrect the range.
On the basis of this novel, it can only be a good thing.
