Creepy fun

The fabulously creepy return of Bilis Manger. As much fun as the TV shows. I'm already reading for the second time!

Wibbly Wobbly, Timey Whimey

This has got to be one of my favorite Torchwood stories. Gary Russell does a fantastic job getting the characters spot on. The story opens with Captain Jack Harkness at a train station in Cardiff, looking for someone. Random, yes, but that's not the odd part. The odd part is that it's not 2008, oh no, but towards the end of WWII. I warn you now, this book will jump back and forth between past, present, and future and will get a bit confusing. Yet it is worth every moment of confusion, for Russell does a wonderful job at keeping up suspense while having the plot continue to develop. For you Janto fans out there, it has many cute, sweet, heartfelt, and domestic moments between the boys. This book also gives a little bit more insight into the mystery that is Bilis Manger, and further develops the mystery surrounding Jack. If you don't have this book you should buy it immediately.

Best Torchwood book to date!

Of all the Torchwood books to date, this is my favorite! The characters were true to form, the plot was fascinating, and the writing was great. The ending felt a bit rushed, but sometimes the TV episodes end like that also. I actually enjoyed the character development and emotional delving more than the usual "action only" plots. Don't worry, there's plenty enough action for everyone. This book explored the nature of the character's souls, their weaknesses, and their strengths. The character of Gwen did not play as major a role in the book as usual, and actually that seemed a pleasant change. I prefer a plot that balances the Torchwood team's interaction - they're all fascinating in different ways. I loved that the author delved into the developing relationship between Jack and Ianto - everyone is always wondering what their true feelings are, the nature of their relationship, and if the affection is mutual. The ending leaves no doubt. If you're a Jack/Ianto fan, this book will leave you with happy tears.

Another great Torchwood book

By far the best book of the Torchwood series so far. It is in The Twilight Streets that we see the return on Bilis Manger, the time traveller from the end of Torchwood Series One. It is in this book that we find out truths about the strange man and why he did what he did. I won't give too much away, but this book has a great adventure in it and quite beautifully creates the relationships between the Torchwood members perfectly. As an avid Jack/Ianto fan, I found the moments between them to be sweet and completely in character. All characters are developed beautifully and it was a fantastic read. Definitely a book I could read over and over again.
