Doctor Who: The Drosten's Curse by A.L. Kennedy *Review*




“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.
 
Whatever it is, the Doctor is most at home when faced with the distinctly odd. With the help of Fetch Brothers’ Junior Receptionist Bryony, he’ll get to the bottom of things. Just so long as he does so in time to save Bryony from quite literally losing her mind, and the entire world from destruction.
 
Because something huge, ancient and alien lies hidden beneath the ground and it’s starting to wake up…


 MY THOUGHTS

As some of you already know, I love Doctor Who and I have read a bunch of Doctor Who books in the past few years.  When I saw The Drosten's Curse I had to read it right away.

This story has the fourth Doctor.  I don't think I have ever read any books with the fourth Doctor in it but I did the episodes with him in it.  

Anyway, I quite enjoyed this book.  Very well done. I really could imagine the fourth Doctor and has the  same quirkiness of The Doctor we have come to love.

I am very impressed with the way A.L. Kennedy wrote this one and I am going to be reading more books by this author at some point. 

If you are a fan (new or old) of Doctor Who than I think you will enjoy this one as much as I did. 

I give this 5 out of 5.

I received this book from Blogging for Books for this review.
