Welcome to Really Really Short Reviews were the name is long and the reviews are short! Because sometimes short is that much sweeter. (Also, because I’m really lazy!) And there might be quotes too (lots and lots)! (Because everyone loves quotes, right?) – KIM IS HIJACKING THIS ONE! MWAHAHAHA!

Rating: 4 of 5 stars
A Doctor Who short story featuring the Twelfth Doctor. It follows in the tradition of the series of short stories published last year by Puffin featuring each Doctor.
It definitely lived up to the “short” portion of “short story”, but it packs a punch in that limited format. Much like the Twelfth Doctor on TV, Holly Black deftly captures the essence of this incarnation. It’s a bit creepy, a bit thrilling, and full of heart. Overall, well worth the read for any Doctor Who fan.
Space is so dark that looking out at it confounds the brain. The more you stare at the vastness of it, at the hanging stars and the swirling galaxies, the more you start to notice how imprecise words like ‘dark’ and ‘black’ and ‘endless’ are. There are so many gradients of shadow, all of them terrifying to me.
That’s why I keep the lights on.
Everything can be made better with a good book or some relaxing knits. 😀 Find me on IG @kimberlyh12 or on Twitter @enervated.
