Recced because: The Time War and its aftermath has always fascinated and haunted me. All those centuries of history, of absolute iron rule over Time itself wiped out in mere minutes - it brings quite the image. The Doctor - alone. Without the hum of his people in his mind, singing through his TARDIS. It is a tragedy beyond comprehension. And then - when the Master was found and lost again...

A lot of authors have tried to touch on the War and its aftermath. The horror of losing everyone, everything you have known. I have written on it myself - but I could never, never write it with the gritty rawness this author brought to it! I have been reading her work since the Angel Fandom, so I have the definite advantage in knowing just how realistic, how vivid and gripping her work is. This fiction is absolutely top notch - some of her best work - and there was no way I could not share it with you all: War, pain, loss. Then redemption (in the face of an old friend/enemy)...only to lose it all over again, live it all over again with a fresh loss. She writes it so well, you live it with him; so needless to say, this is not a fiction for the faint-hearted. But should you chose to read (and I highly encourage it), you will find every word well worth the time...
