Rose and the Doctor return to present-day Earth to visit Rose's mum, and become intrigued by the latest craze -- the video game, Death to Mantodeans. Is it as harmless as it seems? And why are so many local people going on holiday and never returning? Meanwhile, on another world, an alien war is raging. The Quevvils need to find a new means of attacking the ruthless Mantodeans. Searching the galaxy for cunning, warlike but gullible allies, they find the ideal soldiers - on Earth. Will Rose be able to save her family and friends from the alien threat? And can the Doctor play the game to the end - and win?

        This is a FANTASTIC book and will create a movie in your head. If you haven't seen the hit BBC show "Doctor Who" then I wouldn't recommend this book because it's set in-between episodes. This story will make you cry, be in suspense, laugh, and just relax. The ending is extremely good and even though it may not make much sense just go with it. It's time wimey stuff. There is love, hope, and pain. People getting captured and saved. But above all else, it's all good in the end.

          I'm reading this, and I'm on chapter 3. This book is amazing!!!!!!! Sorry I can't tell you what it's about though, SPOILERS! It has 21 chapters just to let you know. I'm in 7th grade and I like reading, so this is a good book if you like mystery, action, adventure, love, and sadness, mixed with happiness. Allons-Y!
