Em is locked in a bare, cold cell with no comforts. Finn is in the cell next door. The Doctor is keeping them there until they tell him what he wants to know. Trouble is, what he wants to know hasn't happened yet.

Em and Finn have a shared past, but no future unless they can find a way out. The present is torture - being kept apart, overhearing each other's anguish as the Doctor relentlessly seeks answers. There's no way back from here, to what they used to be, the world they used to know. Then Em finds a note in her cell which changes everything. It's from her future self and contains some simple but very clear instructions. Em must travel back in time to avert a tragedy that's about to unfold. Worse, she has to pursue and kill the boy she loves to change the future.

-Spoilers ahead!-

Oh. I can't take it, you guys! You know when you've read something so good you wish you hadn't read it so you could re-read anew?
I've only had a few books out of my two decades of life, one of the main ones being Heart-Shaped Bruise by Tanya Byrne, and Ultraviolet by R.J. Anderson.
I'm not going to go into the whole Doctor Who thing, because I live in Cardiff and I'd be shunned and my best friend would kill me.
I don't know whether to laugh or cry, really, because finally, a book with such a beautiful cover, and, dude time travel, lived up to what I thought it would be.
