Castle Extremis - whoever holds it can control the provinces either side that have been at war for centuries. Now the castle is about to play host to the signing of a peace treaty. But as the Doctor and Martha find out, not everyone wants the war to end.

Who is the strange little girl who haunts the castle? What is the secret of the book the Doctor finds, its pages made from thin, brittle glass? Who is the hooded figure that watches from the shadows? And what is the secret of the legendary Mortal Mirror?

The Doctor and Martha don't have long to find the answers - an army is on the march, and the castle will soon be under siege once more...

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 is based on the BBC television show Doctor Who, and features the time and space traveling extraterrestrial called the Doctor, and his human companion Martha. The time travelers find themselves on an ancient castle isolated in outerspace where two warring alien species are about to sign a treaty that will bring peace between their planets. However, the treaty is disrupted when one of the high ranking officials is murdered in mysterious circumstances. At the center of the mystery is a strange mirror that is more than a mirror and a diary made from glass and written in an unreadable language.The mystery is intriguing and suspenseful, and, like most Doctor Who adventures, the story is full of strange alien worlds, technologies and customs. The characterization is excellent and the dialogue given to the Doctor and Martha reads just as the characters talk on the show. The story is full of jokes (some horribly cheesy), and more than its fair share of mirror-related puns-- each character is given at least one opportunity to engage in some wordplay with 'reflect'. Doctor Who fans will very much enjoy this book, but it may not have much appeal for individuals unfamiliar with the show. Though the book does not achieve any of the brilliant plot twists, emotional depth or social commentary that define the best episodes of the TV show, it does nicely capture the spirit of the series by being slightly goofy and very fun. This book would be enjoyed by readers grade seven and up.

This is the first of the modern-day Doctor Who novels I¿ve had an opportunity to read. I have to say that the author captured the characters of Tennant¿s Doctor Who and Martha in the best way.The Doctor and Martha arrive at Extremist where the Doctor informed Martha they would be attending the best theme park in the cosmos. Unfortunately, it seems, they arrived a little earlier in time than planned. The Doctor quickly meets Janna, a troubled young orphan girl who plays a major role in the story.They become entangled in peace talks between the Zarugians and the Anthiums as well as murder, mystery and intrigue ¿Doctor style¿.The story is centered on the Mortal Mirror and its secrets which the Doctor and Martha discover. Soon after their arrival, the Doctor discovers a diary made of glass in a hiding spot behind as stone that is being replaced by the maintenance robots, Bill and Bot. He later learns how to read it and discovers some of the history behind the mirror.After Martha gets trapped in the mirror and the Doctor rescues her, they get a better understanding of its purpose and what it holds. Using that information, as well as what they learn from Janna and the Man in the Mirror, the Doctor is able to prevent war and put the treaty negotiations back on track.All in all, a fun read. I¿m looking forward to reading more in the series.

These books are a guilty pleasure for me. They're nothing special, just quick, fun Doctor Who stories when you have nothing else to do for a little while.This story is about peace talks between two races held in a castle. One side decides the war isn't over until they've won it, so they try a little takeover tactic during the treaty meeting. The Doctor and Martha arrive just in time to figure things out and save the day.
