Gary Russell’s writing can be a bit hit and miss, and a bit too ‘clever’ sometimes, and this book suffers from that fault to quite a large degree. There are a lot of ‘in jokes’, and asides and for a casual reader a lot of this may let their reading experience down.
The Doctor ends up on the planet Legion, where a postcard has invited him, but he’s not quite sure who the postcard was from. When he finds out, he’s not at all sure he wants to know quite what’s going on, but he does know he needs to resolve the problem of the pyramid in Sydney Harbour.
This is quite a good novel, with Peter Capaldi’s Doctor being quite well used in the story. The other companion who turns up is also well written, but the story, and some of the ‘in’ references make this a book that it’s hard to lose oneself in as a reader, and I can well imagine casual readers losing the will to continue with it.
