What a surprisingly delightful read. That¿s what I came saying right after finishing ¿Torchwood: Border Princes¿ by Dan Abnett. This time around Mr. Abnett flexes his immense word-smithing muscles on the Doctor Who spin-off Torchwood with gratifying success. The novel starts off with a number Romero/Whedon like scenes but then adroitly delves into the nuances of not just lives of the Torchwood members, but the idiosyncrasies of all those in the connecting storylines; this is where Mr. Abnett shines. Mr. Abnett is able to display depth of character with such alacrity and profundity that it sometimes leaves this reader breathless and wishing for more information regarding these incredible personas. In any case, Border Princes is an excellent novel. Will I pick up any of the other Torchwood novels? I am unfamiliar with the other authors but based on this novel, I just may take the dive.

The character referred to by a previous reviewer bugged me at first, but I feel that character's presence was adequately explained by the end of the book. I liked the side-plots too - in the "real world" it is "normal" to have to deal with more than one task at a time, so why shouldn't the Torchwood team have to do the same?I thoroughly enjoyed this book, and I hope the BBC continues to publish Torchwood novels for as long as the series lasts.

Ack! This was just bad. The story was just blah and couldn't even be saved by the voice performance of Eve Myles--who was a spectacular narrator. This book was just bad. It was boring and a bit all over the place and had way too much emphasis on a non team member. I don't think this was worthy of Torchwood. But it hasn't put me off the next book. I thought the previous book Another Life was pretty good, and I know they don't all have the same author, so there's hope that the next will be better.
