    The Second NSA to feature the Thirteen Doctor, this one is also set on an alien planet.The Doctor and her friends arrive on Adamantine with the planet under threat.This felt really early in the Doctor s Thirteenth incarnation timeline as she mentioned that she s still getting use to her new face.There were a couple of mentions about giant spiders on the planet too, but it felt like foreshadowing to an adventure against them arachnids in Sheffield So with that in mind it really felt like this TARDIS crew were really getting to know each other properly during this story.The alien planet was wonderfully descriptive, I also really liked the character Ash in this story This was really short compared to other books in this range, this helped the story move along at a quick pace.A highly enjoyable read with The Doctor and her friends.

    Rock Roll with no rope A lot of Hand of Fear when The Doctor lands on world of people who are living rocks seawater works like acid does on us dissolves them killing them..Grahame lose his shoe ,no one remembers to pack any rope the sonic doesn t do rocks This is in dig at climate change which do NOT need to be lectured in Doctor Who.It is annoying that McCormack showing off by using cheap way to do it.I do not see that need are attention drawn to change we all know about it.Few faults too the Doctor does not sleep that is for your less mortals.Big thing here is if you are made of rock like A Troll what do they eat drink Is it like Ani Moorpork acid Cannot wait for big problem when Graham needs a pee will it work like seawater All the time I am reading this I keep hearing Journey to the Centre of the Earth by Rick Walkman playing in my head.

    I ve read two of the Thirteenth Doctor adventures so far The Good Doctor Molten Heart and what both have in common though written by different authors is that the characters voices are being captured exceptionally well Which honestly I was concerned about because I didn t anticipate Whittaker s delightfully rapid fire speech pattern and enthusiasm translating well to the page Molten Heart is a tad faster paced than The Good Doctor , though it doesn t dig quite as deep into the planet s political drama McCormack does an excellent job balancing the narrative focus between The Doctor and Ryan s quest to find the missing scientist, Basalt, and Yaz and Graham s travails with the planet s government and law enforcement It touches subtly and occasionally not subtly as is the DW way on the topics of environmental impact and how leaders often refuse to acknowledge evidence and facts if that means changing course and admitting that they were wrong It was a fun fast read, and it gives Yaz s character a little flesh and depth I m definitely looking forward to Combat Magicks and any further novels feature the team gang fam

    This is wonderful A novel that reads like one of the very best of the early late era Target novelizations It feels like an adaptation of a television episode, with all the extra embellishments and additions that made the best Target novelizations something special It gets extra marks for being the best early book to capture a new Doctor companion team so accurately I could hear Jodie company in my mind, uttering every word of dialogue An unexpected, satisfying surprised I inhaled in the space of an hour.

    Stone people that live inside a hollow world which is about to collapse do I need to say A perfect Doctor Who adventure with the Doctor and her gang.

    I thoroughly enjoyed it, another great Doctor Who book A very interesting and engaging story, though maybe a bit of a perfect ending I didn t think ALL the characters would end up being good but perhaps this is one of those lucky times

    Peut tre mon roman Doctor Who pr f r jusqu pr sent Apr s, je n en ai lu probablement qu une dizaine.La Docteure et sa gang arrive l int rieur d une plan te o vit une population de pierres vivantes au nom repr sentant souvent le type de pierre qu illes sont Granit, Quartz, meraude, etc Cette population est cependant prise avec un probl me d infiltration d eau qui est aussi dangereux pour elle que la lave l est pour l quipage du TARDIS et l infiltration est tellement importante en ce moment qu elle risque de d truire toute la civilisation C est donc au tour du Docteur et de Ryan, l aide de Ash, de retrouver le p re d Ash qui tente de trouver une solution au probl me tandis que Yaz et Graham sont coinc s avec Quartz dans la cit o un monarque, meraude, pr f re nier cet apocalypse et pers cuter ceux qui y croient que d adresser le probl me.Plusieurs allusions au Seigneur des Anneaux, en plus d une cr ation de r flexion philosophique des tres souterrains qui n ont jamais vu la surface et qui ne peuvent que postuler son existence mais ne m me pas pouvoir imaginer qu il pourrait y avoir d autres mondes en plus int ressant a me rappelait un peu la plan te de Douglas Adams qui ne voyait pas les toiles et que donc il n y avait aucun int r t pour eux et vouloir voyager au del videmment, il y a de nombreux parall les avec les changements climatiques avec de soi disant sceptiques qui ne font qu accro tre le probl me ou du moins emp cher sa r solution.Les personnages taient brillamment crit, au point o on se pose la question savoir comme McCormack a r ussi ce tour de force sans avoir vu la s rie elle n tait pas encore sortie au moment de l criture , l action va super bien et la r solution des probl mes sans tre n cessairement tr s originale, a le m rite de n cessiter des ressources auxquelles je n aurais pas songer C est aussi le premier roman dont j ai l impression qui n est pas juste destin une jeune public de par son criture sans contenir plus de violence ou de propos pour des personnes plus g es.Une tr s bonne entr e dans l univers romanesque si jamais quelqu un e voudrait en essayer un pour voir Un super livre aussi qui donne un tr s bon r le Yaz qui a t quelque peu n glig e dans la s rie mon humble avis sans laisser tomber les autres personnages.

    Starring the 13th Doctor, Yasmin, Ryan, and GrahamA world inside a world Possible SpoilersWhen the TARDIS lands on a small planet the Doctor and her companions find themselves in a huge cavern This turns out not to be just a cave on the planet s surface It is the hollow center of the planet.Shades of the Star Trek episode For the World is Hollow and I have Touched the Sky the inner world is inhabited The people of this subterranean realm are formed from rock and crystal The rivers and lakes here are lava Crystal patches like wildflowers glow and provide light.Now there are lights in the sky, or rather the upper mantle Jets of boiling seawater cause mayhem People touched by the steaming water usually do not survive.One of the inhabitants has preached about aliens, the surface, and ways to combat the leeks, only to be heckled and persecuted Now, his findings could save his people if they will listen How do you help people who don t believe you I loved this book, very Star Trekky In a world where up is down, water is fire and so on, the book brings the reader to a truly alien planet Too often in sci fi, the aliens are merely humans with a slight difference This story is Doctor Who, where alien often means than a forehead piece or skin tone The plot builds nicely and the characters draw the reader in The reader will find as much to love about the aliens as with the Doctor and her companions The twist in the story may be a bit expected, but not boring I give the book five stars Quoth the Raven

    You guys, are you watching the Thirteenth Doctor So good I like it so much that my husband got me the new Thirteenth Doctor comics, BUT it s the stupid serial format with cliffhangers and weeks between them, which is not at all how I like to read comics I think I m going to wait for the trade, instead Bingereading, y all Molten Heart is a new Doctor Who spinoff novel It reads like a longer ep, with internal monologue, especially from Yaz There s space for character growth, too Or, in certain cases, some spot on character stagnancy, like when Ryan just switches to past tense for Ash s missing dad, because he s Ryan and he has gigantic father issues The characters are so good that I hear their dialogue in the actors voices also can we talk about how this doctor s companions are actually very good at taking direction and not needing rescue every 10 minutes So good.Molten Heart has the same optimism, risk, friendships and danger that I love in the TV season and that sucked me into the Ninth Doctor, too I m really enjoying the complete lack of Daleks, Cybermen or the Master this season Classic Who is fine, but I feel like all of those classic enemies has been taken just about as far as those storylines can go I don t want to find just one final Dalek, again Molten Heart has a new enemy, which can be read as an allegory for climate change denial, but also works as another beautiful, dangerous planet, in need of the Doctor and friends So good, you guys.

    I mean, I probably should have expected a book where the aliens are rock people to move a little slower, but the departure from typical narrative structure pacing here is pretty pronounced, and leads to a slow build up to an all at once denouement, sort of like an avalanche Is this on purpose Is Una playing with us a little This has the feel of a Second or even First Doctor story, but with the welcome addition of Yaz s perspective Finally, this is an extended Save the Planet metaphor with an Our Elected Officials Are Often Clueless Liars subplot thrown in , and a pretty good one, though not everyone will need to be hit over the head with that quite as extensively as it is presented here.
