3.0 out of 5 stars Another Life, 9 July 2007
This review is from: Torchwood: Another Life (Hardcover)
Another Life is the first of the Torchwood books. Unlike many TV-tie-ins it hits the ground running. The story is interesting enough which fits well into the Torchwood world. All characters are well represented and Torchwood McGuffins like the Rift, the Hub and the various technology all fit in well.

The main plot concerns a theft of nuclear material. Its nothing remarkalbe but its enjoyable reading about characters we have only till now watched on TV. Nothing too ambitious is tried in this first book but at the same time the reader gets the impression a lot of work went into this book as it fits seamlessly with the Torchwood world. Its set between episodes 3 and 4 of the series it seems.

The secondary plot concerns Owen hooking up with an old girlfriend. This eventually fits well with the main plot but initally meanders.

There are some good descriptions of various areas of Cardiff and various Welsh characters.

The end is not too surprising but we get a lot of insight into Gwens character without her deviating too much from her TV persona.

So all in all a good start for the Torchwood range.
