Publisher's Summary

The Doctor and Martha arrive at Castle Extremis, which is about to play host to the signing of a peace treaty. But not everyone wants the war to end. Who is the little girl who haunts the castle? Who is the hooded figure that watches from the shadows? And what is the secret of the legendary Mortal Mirror?

Mixed Feelings, Atmosphere, and Shattered Hope

Would you try another book from Justin Richards and/or Freema Agyeman?

I think the reader was great, and I might give Justin Richards another try, but the lack of explanation and payoff for the original concept is frustrating.

Has Doctor Who turned you off from other books in this genre?

No, I'm still interested in the scifi genre as a whole, and I still like doctor who.

Would you listen to another book narrated by Freema Agyeman?

Her acting chops show off well, and I've already tried other books read by her and found her range to my liking.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Doctor Who?

I'm not sure that I'd cut anything from this work. Rather I'd want to add more things. The initial weird moment really needs a payoff that the story is lacking, and some external agency besides the warring concerns of the reptiles and humanoids.

Any additional comments?

I still don't understand why a the mirror created a glass duplicate at the start, or what those hostile dopplegangers were doing.

Good

Great book, worth a listen. The only problem is her voice. it goes loud to quite so often I have to keep turning it down because it hurts my ears.
