The TARDIS lands in 22nd century Africa in the shadow of a dormant volcano. Agri-teams are growing new foodstuffs in the baking soil to help feed the world's starving millions — but the Doctor and Rose have detected an alien signal somewhere close by.

When a nightmare force starts surging along the dark volcanic tunnels, the Doctor realizes an ancient trap has been sprung. But who was it meant for? And what is the secret of the eerie statues that stand at the heart of the volcano?

Dragged into a centuries-old conflict, Rose and the Doctor have to fight for their lives as alien hands practice the arts of destruction all around them.

True to form, The Art of Destruction by Stephen Cole retains the qualities found in other books in the new tenth Doctor book series, unique plotlines, and interesting characters. Of course it also has a few twists and turns and some pretty gruesome villains. The only problem is, there are so many sides to this that it’s pretty hard to decide who the villains are.
