The Bog Warrior by Cecelia Ahern
Arriving on the planet Cashel, the Tenth Doctor witnesses a strange masked ball. To guarantee peace, Prince Zircon has to choose a bride from the Bog People - dead men and women who have been resurrected as slaves. Or as warriors. But Zircon is in love with the enslaved Princess Ash, whose parents were deposed and executed by the current Queen. As usual, the Doctor has walked right into trouble, and it's up to him to sort it out.
(Synopsis from Goodreads.)
For anyone that follows me on my personal Facebook page, you will know that I am a diehard Whovian. I am absolutely addicted to Doctor Who. I watched the new series, and am making my way through the classic series. I love reading Doctor Who books, graphic novels, and fan fiction. You name a Doctor Who story, and I've probably read it. Therefore, when I saw a couple of Doctor Who novellas from a series called Time Trips, it was a no brainer to request them. I am so happy that the publisher was awesome enough to approve me. I really enjoyed The Bog Warrior.
The Bog Warrior was like a cross between Doctor Who and Cinderella. I really enjoyed reading it because Cinderella is one of my favorite fairy tales of all time. I thought Cecelia Ahern did a great job capturing the spirit of Ten. She did a great job staying true to the character by implementing a lot of his witty, snarky, cleverness into the character. I could almost imagine that it was an actual episode of Doctor Who.
The Bog Warrior was the first Cecelia Ahern book I have read. However, it definitely won't be my last. I enjoyed her interpretation of Doctor Who, and the Tenth Doctor so much that as soon as I was done reading it, I went out and bought a couple of her full length romance novels. If the writing style is anything like this book, I'm sure I will love it. I can't wait to read more from the Doctor Who Time Trips to see what kind of crazy, original adventures that all of the Doctors get into next. I especially want to read a time trip about Nine, because he is my favorite Doctor.
I give The Bog Warrior: 5/5.
