    1. Re-read in 2015.Review from 2012.This book is set just after book one. We see how the cliffhanger at the end of The Dust of Ages is resolved and how the Doctor finds the next clue to the mystery of the Eternity Crystal. This leads him to Mordane where the he sees how much the planet has changed. Children may not see it until it is revealed, but it is soon clear what the Crystal does and why several people want to have it.As it happens with the other book of this series, we’re supposed to know [...]

    2. Although written for younger readers, I have so far preferred this 'Darksmith Legacy' series more than many of the main line of recent 'Who' novels.Both titles I have read so far have had good supporting characters, clever plots, a great atmosphere and sense of place and have dipped their toes deep in the waters of gothic horror. 'The Graves of Mordane' is basically a Doctor Who zombie tale and it accomplishes its task quite well.The only slight complaint is the brevity, it's a little bit rushed [...]

    3. Review written: sometime before April 19, 2015The Graves of Mordane by Colin BrakeWhy I read it: It's still Doctor Who.Rating: 4/5What I thought: Zombies plus mild intrigue of a somewhat royalist sort makes for a very enjoyable romp, David Tennant's Doctor is consistent to his televisual portrayal, and the Agent is honestly my favourite character in this entire series (of books). Was he in this one much though? I'm not sure. In any case, I liked this one a lot, even more than I did "Planet of th [...]

    4. Given to me as a white elephant gift, I read it quickly when I had an hour to kill while waiting for friends to show up for dinner. A short, fun-ish tale for children who love sci-fi or Doctor Who. It is a one or two star read for an adult, but for the intended audience comprised of those under the age of 12 it's most likely a three or so star read.

    5. Suitable for 8 - 11 year olds.This one is a direct sequel to book 1. The Doctor lands on a graveyard planet with lots of zombies, this includes a few logic puzzles to do with graves that the reader can figure out.The website is similiar to the first book one, but has a different location, a graveyard.

    6. Very much like "The Dust of Ages" in the way it offers a simple straight forward story that has been written well but doesn't really excite. Hopefully the bigger plot will kick in more in future installments. Still, this isn't a bad book at all; there's a healthy amount of entertainment value present and the DW energy is there.

    7. It's obvious these books are written for young audiences but they still include lots of gothic horror elements like for this chapter of the series for e.g. Zombies. This chapter was better than it's predecessor for me as I loved the characters more and the plot was also more developed we learnt much more about the Darksmiths and the Eternity Crystal.

    8. For my full review visit my blog: shadowsireview/20I really enjoyed the 2nd book of the Darksmith Legacy. It had a good pace and a good execution of the plot.

    9. Much better than the first one. This one is more like a standard Doctor Who adventure. Still not the best Who book ever, but a nice quick read.
