Overview

It is almost Halloween in the sleepy New England town of Blackwood Falls. Autumn leaves litter lawns and sidewalks, paper skeletons hang in windows, and carved pumpkins leer from stoops and front porches.

The Doctor and Martha soon discover that something long-dormant has awoken in the town, and this will be no ordinary Halloween. What is the secret of the ancient chestnut tree and the mysterious book discovered tangled in its roots? What rises from the local churchyard in the dead of night, sealing up the lips of the only witness? And why are the harmless trappings of Halloween suddenly taking on a creepy new life of their own?

As nightmarish creatures prowl the streets, the Doctor and Martha must battle to prevent both the townspeople and themselves from suffering a grisly fate...

Featuring the Tenth Doctor and Martha as played by David Tennant and Freema Agyeman in the hit sci-fi series from BBC Television.

This book was pretty booring. Im so sorry to the auther of the book, i usualy dont say bad things. But this book was a total waste of mytime. To many referances to the show, on elike every page. The plot was okay, but could have handeled it better. The text just doesnt flow like a regular doctor who book, and the doctor doesnt remind me of the doctor, probabaly why there are so many refrences to the show because that is the only way you know you are reading a doctor who book. Over all i would not have apent the money on the book, and i would not recomend it to anybody. Even for a halloween book, this is a far from good.

Good book, clever and love the halloween mood! The kids are written a little older than their ages, but that doesn't take away from the story. Felt just like watching an episode.

A wonderful treat for Halloween, it is a wonderful story and very funny as well. You can never get enough of the Doctor and Martha Jones.

The story is a standard Who formula, but that doesn't mean it isn't worth the read. The Doctor has, as usual, stumbled upon a mystery in a New England town invoving a mysterious book, green mist and American teenagers. Unfortunately, the story has done nothing for the Doctor's love of cats!

The author did a great job of voicing the Doctor and Martha, it was easy to visualize them as the story progressed.

The only thing I consider wrong with the book is that the author did not consider how American teenagers might react to the situation. Not so much of the Doctor appearing, but the fact that the teenagers took everything at face value, including the use of British terms which should have puzzled them.

Would I recommend it to a friend? Yes, I would. Is it a keeper? Well, of course, any Who fan will gladly add it to their collection.
