Celebrating Young Adult fiction by UK authors

UKYA Books of the Year: Dark Horizons by J T Colgan

Nominated by Stuart Ian Burns

images“Doctor Who is always at its most interesting when attracting new voices, so it shouldn’t have been too much of a surprise that when Jenny Colgan decided to offer us her first Doctor Who novel it would be one of the best in years. Working with the irresistable hook of the mystery of the Lewis Chess men, Colgan weaved an exciting adventure for the Doctor and marauding Vikings fighting an unexpected alien threat. There was real poetry hidden within these pages as Colgan captured these isolated specks of humanity in a world which is yet to be infested by too much civilisation, even the harsh landscape itself a constant source of mild peril. Essential.”
