Inhaltsangabe

David Warner reads a new novel featuring the 12th Doctor and Clara, as played by Peter Capaldi and Jenna Coleman in the hit BBC TV series.
"The Grail is a story, a myth! It didn't exist on your world! It can't exist here!"
The city-state of Varuz is failing. Duke Aurelian is the last of his line, his capital is crumbling, and the armies of his enemy, Duke Conrad, are poised beyond the mountains to invade. Aurelian is preparing to gamble everything on one last battle. So when a holy man, the Doctor, comes to Varuz from beyond the mountains, Aurelian asks for his blessing in the war.
But all is not what it seems in Varuz. The city-guard have lasers for swords, and the halls are lit by electric candlelight. Aurelian's beloved wife, Guena, and his most trusted knight, Bernhardt, seem to be plotting to overthrow their Duke, and Clara finds herself drawn into their intrigue....
Will the Doctor stop Aurelian from going to war? Will Clara's involvement in the plot against the Duke be discovered? Why is Conrad's ambassador so nervous? And who are the ancient and weary knights who arrive in Varuz claiming to be on a quest for the Holy Grail?

Mirror, mirror on the wall...

First of all: I liked that the author got the Doctor and Clara very much like they appear on TV.
This story is a good one, I think, but somehow it left me a bit disappointed. I presume that is because an awful lot of story is crammed into a fairly small amount of reading time: There are the quarrels at the court of Varuz itself (treachery, adultery, succession to the throne), the imminent war with neighbours, some ancient (or futuristic) technology… well, and then there is Lancelot. This story could have been gorgeous if it were given more space!

The narrator is very good, but also somehow soothing. I had no problems falling asleep listening to that audiobook, but it was sometimes hard to remain focused on listening.
