YA Victorian time travel house story in Name that Book (September 2015)


Didn't finish - I can deal with books that are enjoyable but dumb. I won't tolerate idiotic and boring. I'm so sorry for the people who thought this might be like Harry Potter because of the Nicholas Flamel thing.

I read this for the "Written by More Than One Author" part of my 2020 reading challenge. This was really well done, a collection of short stories each featuring a different Doctor, by a different author. The stories were all well written and felt like they could easily become an episode.
