February Books 5) The Jade Pyramid, by Martin Day

An Eleventh Doctor plus Amy audiobook, read by Matt Smith himself, set in Japan under the Shogunate. A fairly standard story - the Jade Pyramid off the title is an alien artefact with mystic powers in a village temple, and thus an object of desire for the local rulers. But it is written well, and Matt Smith is good at the voices (himself as the Doctor, Amy's Scottish lilt, and the senior villager) and at telling the story; plus nice music and sound effects in post-production. Worth adding to your collection.
