Wheel of Ice is the first original “past Doctor” novel to be released since 2005 (no, we’e not counting Shada, that’s something slightly different) and AudioGo don’t want anyone to miss out on it! Therefore, an unabridged reading will be available to all those who can’t get hold of the book from August 2012 and there’s even more exciting news with the announcement that it will be read by David Troughton himself.
For those not familiar with the plot:
“The Wheel. A ring of ice and steel turning around a moon of Saturn, and home to a mining colony supplying a resource-hungry Earth. It’s a bad place to grow up.
The colony has been plagued by problems. Maybe it’s just gremlins, just bad luck. But the equipment failures and thefts of resources have been increasing, and there have been stories among the children of mysterious creatures glimpsed aboard the Wheel. Many of the younger workers refuse to go down the warren-like mines anymore. And then sixteen-year-old Phee Laws, surfing Saturn’s rings, saves an enigmatic blue box from destruction.
Aboard the Wheel, the Doctor, Jamie and Zoe find a critical situation – and they are suspected by some as the source of the sabotage. They soon find themselves caught in a mystery that goes right back to the creation of the solar system. A mystery that could kill them all.”
Wheel of Ice will be available from 16th August 2012 on CD (8 in total) or download. Amazon currently lists the audiobook for pre-order
