August Books 3) Another Life, by Peter Anghelides

I am behind on the current series of Torchwood - did watch the first episode but have let it slip since then. I will hope to catch up when on holiday later this month.

I guess I am also way behind with the books published to accompany the first two series of the show. I listened to the audio version of this, the first Torchwood novel, three years ago, and didn't quite get into it - John Barrowman's audio skills have come on a lot recently but he didn't really engage me in the story when I was listening to it. The dead trees version, however, had me gripped - lots of good Torchwood stuff, a body-hopping alien, a spaceship which endangers Cardiff, a former lover of one of the team (Owen in this case), all against a gloomy backdrop of awful weather littered with variously dead bodies. I tried this one as an experiment, but now I think I'll get through the entire sequence - I have read the next three, Border Princes by Dan Abnett, Slow Decay by Andy Lane and Something in the Water by Trevor Baxendale, and greatly enjoyed the Abnett and Lane, which is not a bad strike rate. Next up therefore is Trace Memory by David Llewellyn.
