Publisher's Summary

On a windswept Northern shore, at the very tip of what will one day become Scotland, the islanders believe the worst they have to fear is a Viking attack. Then the burning comes. They cannot run from it. Water will not stop it. It consumes everything - yet the burned still speak.
The Doctor is looking for a game on the famous Lewis chess set. Instead, he encounters a people under attack from a power they cannot possibly understand. They have no weapons, no strategy, and no protection against a fire sent to engulf them.
Add in some marauding Vikings with very bad timing, a kidnapped princess with a secret of her own and a TARDIS that seems to have developed an inexplicable fear of water, and they all have a battle on their hands. The islanders must take on a ruthless alien force in a world without technology, without communications, without tea that isn't made out of bark. Still, at least they have the Doctor on their side - don't they?

I couldn't give it my usual five star review because I'm not particular to sadder melancholy stories although they are needed for the character to progress this was one of the most melancholy Dr. ventures ever although I did like the Viking joke because if

the doctor was any Norse God it would definitely be Loki

One of the best

Any additional comments?

This was such a wonderful book! The writing, which can be mediocre at best in many Dr Who books, was truly fabulous and Neve McIntosh's performance was fantastic! I can't recommend this one enough!
