The Grail is a story, a myth! It didn’t exist on your world! It can’t exist here! | {{Book Review}} Doctor Who: Royal Blood


The city-state of Varuz is failing. Duke Aurelian is the last of his line, his capital is crumbling, and the armies of his enemy, Duke Conrad, are poised beyond the mountains to invade. Aurelian is preparing to gamble everything on one last battle. So when a holy man, the Doctor, comes to Varuz from beyond the mountains, Aurelian asks for his blessing in the war.

But all is not what it seems in Varuz. The city-guard have lasers for swords, and the halls are lit by electric candlelight. Aurelian’s beloved wife, Guena, and his most trusted knight, Bernhardt, seem to be plotting to overthrow their Duke, and Clara finds herself drawn into their intrigue...

Will the Doctor stop Aurelian from going to war? Will Clara’s involvement in the plot against the Duke be discovered? Why is Conrad’s ambassador so nervous? And who are the ancient and weary knights who arrive in Varuz claiming to be on a quest for the Holy Grail…?

*My Review*
I've never really been a fan of "Dr. Who", but I thought maybe the books would be better than the show I grew up watching(not the new stuff). I have to say that this book isn't the best, at least not for me...but my husband and 12 year old will enjoy it. This is going to be a Christmas gift for my 12 yr old. 

Just because I didn't care for this book, doesn't mean YOU won't, if you are a fan of the Dr. then you might want to check this book out for yourself or for that book lover in your life.
