Excellent War Doctor novel that takes place just before Day of the Doctor (from the War Doctor's perspective). As stated below, this story bridges the gap between the classic series (1963-1989; 1996) and the new series (2005-present) well. With out giving away too many spoilers, it has several ties to "The Five Doctors" and "The End of Time". A favorite villain makes a big appearence in a central role and the Daleks are handled well. This has been my second reading and I've found that recently listening to the Only the Monstrous and Infernal Devices audio box sets from Big Finish (also in the WCLS catalog) helped cement the War Doctor's voice in my head better than just Day of the Doctor alone. I remember in my first reading, his voice kept shifting between John Hurt, Tom Baker and Paul McGann. This time was better. All in all an excellent read and a must for anyone wanting a better look into the Time War.

Awesome story that clarifies come of what happened during the gap between the original TV series and the reboot. An interesting look at the events that are often referred to and have shaped the doctor's character.

...'You really ARE insane.' The Doctor laughed. 'I like to think so.'
