#38: Night of the Humans ~ book review
'This is the Gyre - the most hostile environment in the galaxy...' 250,000 years' worth of junk floating in deep space, home to the shipwrecked Sittuun, the carnivorous Sollogs, and worst of all - a band of Humans who have turned back towards barbarianism and superstition. The Doctor and Amy arrive on this terrifying world in the middle of an all-out frontier war between Sittuun and Humans, and the countdown has already started. There's a comet in the sky, and it's on a collision course with the Gyre...When the Doctor is kidnapped, it's up to Amy and "galaxy-famous swashbuckler" Dirk Slipstream to save the day. But is Slipstream really to be trusted?
I snatched up this book as soon as I saw it at my public library because I am a huge fan of Doctor Who. Night of the Humans didn't disappoint. Similar to any other Doctor Who story, the pages of this book contain an exciting and moving story not only about survival, but about forgiveness and life. It was well-written and read just as if it were a regular Doctor Who episode written down. This series is, simply put, amazing official Doctor Who fan fiction. I can't wait to read the next books in this series.
