The story is written in the first person (Which I'm not always a fan of) with Gwen, Rhys and other characters giving their viewpoint alternating with each chapter. Gwen and Rhys's parts are written brilliantly and writer James Goss really captures the relationship that works so well on screen. The supporting characters are also well written from scientist Eloise to gay couple Tom and Josh. There is even a cameo from Jack Harkness or 'Uncle Jack' as he is referred to. There are plenty of adult moments that set it apart from the Doctor Who books like the scene with one of the 'children' and a hot bath and a rapist policeman. Providing lighter moments are baby Anwen and a plenty of humour from Rhys.
The conclusion may not really build up to much of a climax and I'm not too sure what the alien is but I really enjoyed the book and I found myself saying "Just one more chapter" towards the end. I will probably pick up the other two books 'Long Time Dead' and 'The Men Who Sold The World'. I'll give this book 7/10.
