Torchwood: Exodus Code by John and Carole Barrowman
Set post ‘Miracle Day’, this is a dire tale of how the Earth is in peril yet again. Jack and the even more annoying Gwen have to stop it. Rhys lurks being useless and there is a mention of Rex looking for the families behind Miracle Day, but I didn’t care. Jack has endless angst, everyone loves Gwen and annoying new characters get way too much attention as they battle a ridiculous big bad. There are good ‘Torchwood’ novels: ‘Border Princes’, ‘Slow Decay’, ‘Something In The Water’, ‘Trace Memory’, ‘Pack Animals’, ‘Bay of the Dead’, ‘Risk Assessment’, ‘Consequences’ and ‘First Born’. This is not one of those novels.
“Gwen ripped the phone from his band and dropkicked it into the dairy section.”
“I spotted one on the street, doing a pretty good job of standing outside the bookie’s having a smoke.”
“How are you not comatose?”
