The hunter becomes the hunted as the Doctor tracks the Agent from Paris towards the Silver Devastation. Th eDoctor hopes the Agent will lead him to where the Crystal can be destroyed. Following the trail, Gisella and the Doctor arrive at an elegant country house where they are welcomed to join the game. The rules are simple: Survive the night and you are a winner. But where is the Agent and why did it come here?
I was really looking forward to this one as the author wrote my favourite Torchwood novel. I was left feeling disappointed though. This book didn't grip me and it took day s to read it, quite a feat considering it's only 128 pages long. The pace was okay, I just didn't like the plot or the way it was executed.
The characters were okay, I didn't really like any of the ones that were created specifically for this story. The Doctor and Gisella weren't too good either. I also missed the tension of the Darksmith Agent chasing them. He only appeared in the last few pages.
Overall I wasn't happy with this book at all, but that's my own fault for over hyping it in my head. I was also annoyed at the High School Musical reference. I don't think HSM and Doctor Who have the same target audience.
3 stars - Fo rme this is the weakest in the series so far. I didn't really enjoy it and it did n't contain much excitement. I just hope that the next book's better.
