Oh thank goodness someone rescued this. The multiverse arc has gone on for probably far longer than was comfortable, especially since the conflict was so maddeningly vague at times but if the books were entertaining it was easier to read them as separate entities and not worry about the overall plot in the background. But as the last few books wavered between stridently mediocre and outright bad we were starting to lose that tenuous link between interest and loyalty. I wanted to see this arc end ...more

I thoroughly enjoyed this one. All of characters involved were written very well. Sabbath continues to go through a process of villain decay: he's easily fooled by something reminiscent of something that fooled him back in The Infinity Race, but he's hardly the focus of the story. There's a good balance of light and dark in this one (which is refreshing given the darkness of the story arc they're working with in these later novels) and Anji gets a very odd but not entirely unsatisfying exit from ...more

I couldn’t get into this at all and I couldn’t even begin to tell you why. It had all the ingredients for a brilliant EDA yet it seemed so dull. The story, whilst intriguing and full of interesting elements just didn’t go anywhere. While the Doctor was, for a change, very well written – I could really hear Paul McGann’s voice saying Steven Cole’s words (which is sometimes a struggle) Anji and Fitz were weak, I thought, and Trix was just annoying. I couldn't engage with it at all and really strug ...more

Meh. I got about halfway through before giving up.

I bought this in a charity shop a few years ago because the blurb sounded interesting, but it never grabbed me. It’s part of a multi-book arc about the collapse of the multiverse. Potentially exciting, but it deflates the tension, because I can be pretty sure the book doesn’t end with the collapse of the multiverse. It relies on the reader knowing the previous continuity – difficult for me, as I haven’t read any other books in the series.
