    Matt Smith and Clare Corbett read this exclusive audio adventure featuring the Eleventh Doctor and Amy Pond, with original music and sound design. When Lord Woolcroft and his team break open the fabled Tomb of Artemis, sealed for thousands of years, they are astonished by what they find inside... The Doctor and Amy have come to Smyrna in 1929 to investigate a mystery.

    …this wasn't much about The Doctor, more his companion.
    Only about 25% actually had Matt Smith as narrator. Whilst the other narrator was good, that's not why i bought the book.

    Max Westin. Sex incarnate. She could smell it, feel it with his proximity. Everything about him was a little rough, a little gritty. A primitive creature. Just like she was. He held her hand a little too long, his thickly-lashed gaze clearly stating his intentions to have her. To tame her...

    I've listened to Day's other audiobooks and enjoyed them so was eagerly awaiting this publication…. what a let down.

    You know when you have to write a 2000 word essay so you you use 2 words when 1 will do and repeat points over and over again ad nauseam? That's what this is like. Day repeats a character's motivation or reasoning so many times its' horrifically annoying.

    The sex was ok but felt manufactured and formulaic.

    The narrator seemed to be on auto pilot with a sing song voice that didn't build any tension or atmosphere.

    Stick to Day's other books.

    Stephan has lived the lifestyle of a Dominant for five years. After several rebellious teenage years, it gave him the stability and control he had been seeking after his parent's death. As president of a not-for-profit foundation, he knows what his future holds and what he wants out of life. All that changes when a simple lunch with his college friend and mentor, Daren, leads him to buying a slave. Thrust into a situation he never thought he'd be in, Stephan can't walk away. He is compelled to help this girl.

    Despite the tumor-shrinking medical miracle that has bought her a few years, Hazel has never been anything but terminal, her final chapter inscribed upon diagnosis. But when a gorgeous plot twist named Augustus Waters suddenly appears at Cancer Kid Support Group, Hazel’s story is about to be completely rewritten. Insightful, bold, irreverent, and raw, The Fault in Our Stars is award-winning-author John Green’s most ambitious and heartbreaking work yet, brilliantly exploring the funny, thrilling, and tragic business of being alive and in love.

    I am by no means a young adult but nonetheless look forward to John's book releases immensely. Sensitive and smart dialog, characters that MAKE you love them and plots that leave you sleep deprived.
    This is no exception just a fantastic funny & poignant read that everyone will love and could raise interesting talking points for parents with teens.
    Narration was beautifully balanced - could not fault it and am already on the look out for other titles read by Kate Rudd.

    Plus John Green is really cool and kind of the flagpole around which us geeks gather and salute.
