The Quick Reads series is designed to deliver digestible, fun and short novels to readers and have proved thoroughly successful all over the country. They’re usually priced at one pound but Amazon.co.uk is offering a downloadable Kindle version of the book for just ninety pence. If you don’t own a Kindle then you can buy the print version of the novel for a mere sixty one pence! With prices like that, you can’t really go wrong. Considering that the author is none other than Mike Tucker whose other Doctor Who novels include Illegal Alien and The Nightmare of Black Island, you should be heading over to Amazon right about now!
Featuring not only the return of the Silurians but what also looks like the Myrka from Fifth Doctor story Warriors of the Deep, the plot revolves around at a secluded spot at the South Pole:
The world is on the brink of crisis. As fuel runs short, society begins to break down. One man seems to have the answer. But is it too good to be true?
The Doctor arrives at an old oil refinery near the South Pole, concerned by claims about this new form of energy. He soon discovers something huge and terrifying is stalking the refinery. It brings death and destruction in its wake.
The battle has begun for planet Earth.
