really liked it
Read in January, 1995

After a run of what to me felt like very average entries in the series, this is a very pleasant surprise.
It's all about Ace - not unreasonably, since this is her formal (albeit second!) departure from the series, although Benny gets a fun subplot and the Doctor does his usual game-playing.

This is also a book written by someone who loves the NAs. There are plenty of passing references to previous titles (even ones she didn't write!) along with the reappearence of one of the more interesting subsidiary characters that has appeared in the series, and yet none of these references get in the way of the storytelling. It also explores the idea of the Doctor being Time's Champion a little more; one of my favourite conceits of the NA series.

Certainly one of the better NAs but perhaps not top tier because it's just a little bit too disjointed (a problem Hummingbird had as well.)
