Doctor Who: The Drosten's Curse

“I shall make you the jewel at the heart of the universe.”

"Something distinctly odd is going on in Arbroath. It could be to do with golfers being dragged down into the bunkers at the Fetch Brothers’ Golf Spa Hotel, never to be seen again. It might be related to the strange twin grandchildren of the equally strange Mrs Fetch–owner of the hotel and fascinated with octopuses. It could be the fact that people in the surrounding area suddenly know what others are thinking, without anyone saying a word."

The Fourth Doctor is in for some trouble in The Drosten's Curse by A.L. Kennedy. Then again, when isn't The Doctor in trouble. I'm not a big fan of the older Doctor Who episodes (mostly because old special effects make me roll my eyes) but I love the Fourth Doctor and his long wonderful scarf in this book. This had that creepy, wild adventure feel that a great Doctor Who episode has. While some times the pace of the story wasn't consistent, I really enjoyed the plot. There is a lot going on in the book so it never gets dull. Mind reading, creepy children, weird old lady, ancient being...what more could you ask for..  His companions for this adventure are funny and likable. And of course the TARDIS herself is the best. 

I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who loves Doctor Who and the Fourth Doctor. :)

*I received this book from Blogging for Books for this review. But all opinions are mine and mine alone*
