Engines of War by George Mann

doctorwho-engineswar“The death of billions is as nothing to us, Doctor, if it helps defeat the Daleks.

The Great Time War has raged for centuries, ravaging the universe. The Daleks and the Time Lords deploy ever more dangerous weapons in their desperate attempts to outmanoeuvre each other and gain an advantage. But there is no end in sight.

On the outer rim of the Tantalus Eye, scores of planets form a spiral around a vast fold in space-time. These planets are human colony worlds, now overrun by Dalek occupation forces. A weary, angry Doctor leads a flotilla of Battle TARDISes against the Dalek stronghold. In the midst of the carnage, the Doctor’s TARDIS crashes to a planet below: Moldox.

The Doctor is trapped in an apocalyptic landscape of ruined cities and burning buildings. Dalek patrols roam amongst the wreckage, rounding up the remaining civilians. But why haven’t the Daleks simply killed the humans? Searching for answers in the ruins the Doctor meets ‘Cinder’, a young, female Dalek hunter. Their struggles to survive and to discover the Dalek plan take them from the ruins of Moldox to the halls of Gallifrey, and set in chain events that will change everything. And everyone.”

This Doctor Who novel is due out at the end of July (BBC Books £12.99).
