A thrilling, all-new adventure featuring the Doctor as played by Matt Smith
in the spectacular hit series from BBC Television.

'They like the Shadows. You know them as Plague Warriors...'

When the Doctor arrives in the 19th-century village of Klimtenburg, he discovers the residents suffering from some kind of plague - a 'wasting disease'. The victims face a horrible death - but what's worse, the dead seem to be leaving their graves. The Plague Warriors have returned...

The Doctor is confident he knows what's really happening; he understands where the dead go, and he's sure the Plague Warriors are just a myth. But as some of the Doctor's oldest and most terrible enemies start to awaken he realises that maybe - just maybe - he's misjudged the situation.

The Doctor lands in a village in the 1800s, which is experiencing a plague. Greying skin, wasting, weakness - radiation sickness, in short - and strange talisman jewelry lead him to realize that there is a Cybermen ship crashed somewhere under the village. Teaming up with villagers, it is a race to find and destroy the Cybermen before they take over and convert the village.

An excellent adventure with the Doctor, a good balance of action and exploration.

I was surprised at the high quality of writing in this book. A good fast-moving story with interesting twists. The science behind the 'monsters' was plausible and that added more realism to the story.

I highly recommend this book; I liked it more than Divergent and far more than Partials.
