This gets the Drashani trilogy off to a beautiful start with a superb action thriller that's peppered with interesting characters who are well-played, and a soundscape that makes the whole experience cinematic. The Doctor is particularly well-written as events force him to the forefront in a very tough story for the coompanionless Fifth Doctor. This all has a great twist in the third episode, which is shockingly realized. Overall, a very intriguing start for this trilogy.

This is quite an action packed adventure. No deep emotionl ride for a companion, though a very difficult one for one of the support characters.

To begin with, this has one of the best covers of all times with great imagery of the burning prince as well as the space opera setting. The story begins on a star ship that quickly makes planetfall where the local wildlife is truly dangerous. Meanwhile political intrigue puts everyone under suspicion until certain characters play their hands. Wandering through it all is a companionless doctor and a pyro-kinetic prince. Its a bit "Base under seige" with a bit of "enemy within" and a lot of action.

The story has a different feel to usual due to the lack of a companion, even the doctor seems out of sort. During the third part he even seems to be whining that nobody is listening to him. Perhaps he misses Teegan. More likely John Dorney has picked up on the lack of someone to explain things to (the original purpose of the companion) and started wondering how the doctor would behave without them. I think he answers that quite well.

The Doctor finds himself on a ship with a Prince with a firey temper where he's not welcomed with open arms. Really good story!
