TLC Book Tours Book Review: Red Phone Box

About Red Phone Box: A Darkly Magical Story Cycle

Paperback: 368 pagesbr>
Publisher: Ghostwoods Books (November 30, 2013)br>
Book Blurb:Sinister forces roam London’s streets, skulking through the neon-lit rain. They are not alone. Haunted by memories of the man who abandoned her, Amber Goodman goes walking in the deep night. The phone box she enters takes her on a journey she could never have imagined, one in which the past and the future will be rewritten. Others follow in her footsteps, their lives intertwining, and the fate of the world hanging on their dance. Safran, pawn of unfathomable powers. Jon, who has lived and died and lived again. Gloria, who only intended to annoy her daddy. Cory, from a different world, on a desperate quest for allies. They and others will find themselves swept up as the playthings of gods who have managed to get along peacefully for millennia — until now.

Review: What to say about this book...what to say.

For starters parts of this book reminded me of Doctor Who...only you are time traveling with The Master instead of the Doctor.

This book is creepy....really creepy.

And I say that in a good way.

This isn't a book that you can easily read in a day. It takes a bit more time digesting. (It isn't like binge watching a whole series of Doctor Who)

OK, I can't really get away from Doctor Who with this book, and I don't know why..maybe its the whole box thing, though the Red Phone Box is quite a bit different from the TARDIS.

This is really a collection of 58 stories, some of them intermingle with others and there's more than one author involved, so that really makes this a different read. It isn't a collection of stories, but rather a story cycle.

Though it took me awhile to get through its pages, it definitely was worth the time it took to read it.

Oh no! I'm in the Red Phone Box

Wow, I don't think I'd want to be traveling with The Master ... but it would definitely make for a great story!

Thanks for being on the tour.
