Doctor Who ~ The Drosten's Curse by A. L. Kennedy

From award-winning author A.L. Kennedy, an original Doctor Who novel featuring the beloved Fourth Doctor, as played by Tom Baker.

“I shall make you the jewel at the heart of the universe.”

Something distinctly odd is going on in Arbroath. It could be to do with golfers being dragged down into the bunkers at the Fetch Brothers’ Golf Spa Hotel, never to be seen again. It might be related to the strange twin grandchildren of the equally strange Mrs Fetch--owner of the hotel and fascinated with octopuses. It could be the fact that people in the surrounding area suddenly know what others are thinking, without anyone saying a word. @goodreads



I very much enjoyed this book, but it is Doctor Who so what do you expect.

I'm going to add some MILD SPOILERS. As you can read in the blurb, there is something strange going on in Arbroath. There are golfers being dragged down into the bunkers at the Fetch Brothers' Gold Spa Hotel. What is doing this? Is it some evil creature?

Old Mrs. Fetch owns the hotel and she has a couple of twin grandchildren that are as strange as she is...could it have something to do with her?

Arriving on the scene is the Doctor wondering what kind of dangers he's going to get into this time. He meets Bryony right off the bat, she is a receptionist at the spa. I really love her character, she is a strong woman that fights to help the people of Arbroath.

Putta is another main character and I love him too. He's sweet.

So, the Doctor, Bryony and Putta save a man from being dragged down into the bunkers. The Doctor can feel a presence and sense words being said in his head.

A lot of things ensue and the Doctor finds out it's a monster called Bah-Sokhar, but is this monster really the culprit? Is there a reason behind all of it's killings? Well... I guess you will have to read the book to find out :)

All of the main characters have interactions with the Bah-Sokhar. Some are not so good and others are very revealing.

You will find out what the connection is with the old Mrs. Fetch and her little family. It's a most intriguing story that I very much enjoyed.

**I would like to thank BLOGGING FOR BOOKS for giving me the opportunity to read this book in exchange for my honest review**

I would recommend to all Doctor Who fans out there :)
4 Stars

Tom Baker is the Fourth Doctor that is the character of this book!
