Overview

"Well, I doubt you'll ever see a bigger insect."

Gabby Nichols is putting her son to bed when she hears her daughter cry out. 'Mummy there's a daddy longlegs in my room!' Then the screaming starts... Alan Travers is heading home from the pub when something rushes his face - a  spider's web. Then something huge and deadly lumbers from the shadows... Kevin Alperton is on his way to school when he is attacked by a mosquito. A big one. Then things get dangerous.

But it isn't the dead man cocooned inside a huge mass of web that worries the Doctor. It isn't the swarming, mutated insects that make him nervous. It isn't an old man's garbled memories of past dangers that intrigue him.  

With the village cut off from the outside world, and the insects becoming more and more dangerous, the Doctor knows that no one is safe. Not unless he can decode the strange symbols engraved on an ancient stone circle, and unravel a mystery dating back to the Second World War.

From Barnes & Noble

In this latest Doctor Who adventure, the great insect apocalypse seems to have begun. As the Doctor nervously watches, a village is steadily overwhelmed by an onslaught of giant, swarming mutant pests. To stop the plague, he must unscramble an ancient message and solve a mystery from another era. Another series spectacular; a trade paperback and NOOK Book original.

    The Crawling Terror by Mike Tucker is the newest edition the Doc

    The Crawling Terror by Mike Tucker is the newest edition the Doctor Who series of books. Each book is like an episode and this book in particular centers around mysterious mutant insects. Doctor Who is a popular TV series originally produced in1963 and has since earned a place in pop culture. Who hasn't heard of the infamous traveling "Tardis"? Anyone familiar with popular media would recognize the "Public call box" as it travels in space. There have been many "Dr Whos" and this fiction novel is based on the adventures of the 12th doctor.




    This fast paced story jumps right into the action- with an enlarged spider. Fans of the popular TV series will enjoy the common themes of the television show, within this book. Readers who enjoy mystery and science fiction fans alike, will also enjoy this book. There is enough authentic graphic scientific description to hold the attention of true Sci fi fans. The authentic historic elements of traveling back into time will be appreciated by history enthusiasts. This is a well rounded story with a variety of elements. While the tv series is equally enjoyed by adults as well as teens and children alike, this 250 page novel is written at the middle school age level. It is an appropriate book choice for teens or young adults.


    As a blogger I received a copy of this book published by Broadway books an imprint of Crown Publishing Group, for the purpose of writing this review.

    " And I thought Iraqi camel spiders were bad." he mutt

    " And I thought Iraqi camel spiders were bad." he muttered. 




    The Doctor and Clara land in a quiet little town of Wiltshire, Britain. It wasn't until they stumbled onto a cocooned man rendered down to skin and bones, caught in a giant spider web that they realized that Wiltshire wasn't as quiet as it seemed. Zombie town people, giant mosquito, mysterious symbols on stones and a mad scientist, all lead to one ending, a dangerous one. 




    To be quite honestly with you, I have never watched, read or even heard of Doctor Who before I started to read this book. Even with that I caught on to everything rather quickly. I also don't particularly enjoy "creepy crawlies". That being said I surprising, not just liked this book, I loved it. The book made me laugh at times, and intrigued at others. I could not put it down. I can not wait to pick up another Doctor Who book 




    * I received this book from Blogging for Books for this review.
