The seventh novel in the bestselling Torchwood range from BBC Books. Shopping for wedding gifts with your fiance is enjoyable, unless like Gwen you witness a Weevil massacre in the shopping centre. A trip to the zoo is a great day out, until a date goes tragically wrong and Ianto is badly injured by stolen alien tech. And Halloween is a day of fun and frights, before unspeakable monsters invade the streets of Cardiff and it’s no longer a trick or a treat for the terrified population. Torchwood can control small groups of scavengers, but now someone has given large numbers of predators a season ticket to Earth.
For all you geeks out there, I am a Whovian. I mean, I am a complete Whovian. I seriously have a celebrity crush on Matt Smith and I would LOVE to write a Doctor Who episode. Psst, Steven Moffat, CALL ME.
That said, I am not a big Torchie (my term). I have a few favorite moments and I do really like Ianto Jones and Owen Harper. Unfortunately, I’m not that big on the show.
This book was like reading a fanfic. Which is another past time I’m not really big on. It was okay, but it wasn’t my favorite. The parts I’ve really loved about were Ianto’s parts. For comical value, this book is good. However, it is an episode more than anything else… I give it an “It was Okay”. Really, if you love the show, you should read it. It’s great to see the team beyond the regular episodes. If you care about the show as much as me or less, then it’d be best if you don’t read it. Would I read another Torchwood book? Sure, it wasn’t that bad. lol ^_^
