Rose and the Doctor return to present-day Earth, 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?

Journal Entry 2 by Simmer from Liverpool, Merseyside United Kingdom on Wednesday, August 31, 2005
This was the second of the new Doctor Who novels that I read. After being disappointed by "Monsters Inside", I wasn't really sure what to expect, but I loved it! A lot of the action takes place on Earth which was a welcome change after all those confusing planets in "MI". This felt like it could be an actual episode, which was brilliant, and the characterisation was spot on. I suppose the plot is a bit simple but the way the story is told didn't disappoint at all. Hope this author writes some more Doctor Who novels!
