An Eleventh Doctor and Amy Pond book set during the Long Night.

It's a fun book, with a nice line in good ridiculous and some wonderful descriptions. There's a wonderful bit at the beginning of the book that makes New York seem as alien and awesome as a completely different world. I thought the ending was a bit rushed, but that might just be me.

But the real stars are the Vykoids, who are just the most glorious, impossible-to-do-on-TV (or impossible to do well) villains. They're just ... listen, I know they're actually horrible and mean but I too am short so I am taking notes. They're just so well done.

In terms of continuity, there's a nice call back to the Daleks of Manhattan, and a wonderfully sinister reference to Nile penguins who I presume )

Librarything Suggestions )

I think a couple of those are lurking on my to be read pile.
