5.0 out of 5 stars Oh boy! Oh boy! Oh boy! What a fantastic ride!, 12 Jun 2009
This review is from: Doctor Who: Storm Harvest (Mass Market Paperback)
Where to start? To be honest, I thought this book was flawless and is most definitely one of the best books I have ever read in any genre.

The Krill are a devastating, but wonderful invention and are used to the absolute hilt, unlike them taking an almost secondary cameo spot during the Big Finish Audio "Dust Breeding". (Such a waste of a wonderful enemy)

Anyway, back to the book. There were very few moments to catch your breath when reading this book, but when the chances did arise they were filled with such beautifully crafted character moments that it just didn't feel like it was supposed to serve as a temporary lull for the reader.

In all honesty, I would loved to have seen a story like this on-screen and more than just a four part story as well. A whole season worth would have been fantastic - chuckle.

To be completely honest, I'm not sure I can recommend this to those who are venturing into reading about the Seventh Doctor and Ace for the first time, simply because, for me, a fair few of the other novels pale significantly in comparison to this one.

But.... Oh well, what the heck! This book gets the highest of recommendations from me. It is truly a rollercoaster ride of a book. It is exhilarating, slickly written with two intelligent enemies to contend with and as with the other Mike Tucker/Robert Perry Doctor Who books this one is also filled with several three dimensional, fully formed characters, including some dolphins.

All in all, I think this book should be in everyone's Doctor Who book collection, even if the 7th Doctor and Ace are not your favourite Companion and/or Doctor.
