This is a fairly good book, with plenty of action, locations that are quite simple and easy to visualise, a limited group of characters making it easier to follow the action, and an intriguing mystery that only gets explained fully at the end. I felt a bit let down by the basic premise, that a planet has sentience. It became an accepted premise that led to the action, but was never really explained, but if you suspend your imagination about that, it was a good adventure.

The perfect gift for a Dr Who addict. Aimed at the 9 - 11 year age group, although it can be enjoyed by anyone. The books are slightly different to the TV program, being much more mystery, who-done-it rather than, being in imposible situations and escaping.

The Price Of Paradise finds the Dr and Rose on the perfect planet, after following an S.O.S from a crashing spaceship. Full of edge of your seat suspence, this book will leave you guessing right up to the last page. A good present for an 9-12 year old for a birthday or Christmas.

another novel adventure for the tenth doctor who, with his companion rose tyler. like all these it's an original story that runs for approx 248 pages of fairly large print and can be read by all ages. and feels like a story that could have been done on tv.

in this story the doctor and rose visit a strange alien world where the natives live peacefully at one with the planet. but all is not well here as the planet seems to be turning against them, and when a spaceship containing humans on an expedition to the place crash lands more trouble ensues.

can the doctor and rose find out what's causing the trouble and make it a paradise once again?

these books all follow a rather similar pattern in style and page count so with each it's a case of if there's anything to make it stand out. and this does. the planet setting is very well created and the prose really makes you feel like you're in the middle of a lush jungle. all the supporting characters are quite well drawn and have convincing motivations and you can feel for them as a result. the doctor and rose are perfectly characterised and you can imagine billie piper and david tennant saying their lines.

an entertaining read, and a slightly above average entry in this series.

Back cover blurb:
Laylora, the Paradise Planet, is a world of breath-taking beauty, where peace-loving Aboriginals supposedly live in harmony with their environment. Years ago, a human called Rez arrived on the planet as a baby in an escape pod, and was adopted by the native people. The Doctor and Rose arrive to answer a distress signal from a group of scientists, whose ship was shot down, only to find that the once-perfect eco-system is showing signs of failing. Natural disasters are becoming more frequent, and creatures from ancient legends are appearing and attacking people. The Doctor realises that the planet is a perfect equation: When left alone it is a paradise, but when alien objects visit the planet, the equation becomes unbalanced, and the planet causes disasters to try to repair itself. The Doctor realises that to restore paradise, not only will the scientists have to leave, but so will Rez.
Colin Brake's style of writing is both thoughtful and engaging; the twelfth original Tenth Doctor novel from BBC Books is topical, but avoids being too serious or po-faced. It does take a while to get into but once you do you'll have to keep going until you've finished.
