Review: Doctor Who: The Drosten's Curse by:A. L. Kennedy
About the Book:
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.
Fetch Brothers' Golf Spa Hotel was once a beautiful, relaxing place. Now, although still beautiful and relaxing to some, one man meet's his fate when he is sucked down in a bunker, while golfing one morning. With the man, gone, dead, never to be seen again, who is going to stop this thing before it happens again? No one other than...The Doctor!
Bryony Mailer, thought today was a normal day, well until a scruffy old man, with crazy hair and a equally crazy colored scarf. And after a odd conversation, she learns he's the Doctor. She soon finds herself following the man around the hotel. This man is truly unlike any other, well you would say that if he was truly human anyway.
As weird things happen all around, Bryony, the Doctor, and an alien-man named Ian Patterson must get down to the bottom of what's gong on. Even if that means getting sucked to the bottom to find out.
The Drosten's Curse was an awesome read. I just adore the whole Doctor Who series, the books and show alike. Personally, I just love the eleventh Doctor, but after reading this book, the fourth Doctor is just as interesting. I really enjoyed this book, and I looked forward to reading many more of A.L. Kennedy’s books!
