Editorial Reviews

From the Author

The Whispering Tombs came about purely because I wanted to create my own space-and-time adventurer, akin to Doctor Who but without bigger-on-the-outside blue boxes or ever-changing Time Lords.

I decided on the name Quality Times because I wanted the main character to have a memorable name. Keeping with the memorable names, Quality's grandmother - who you meet in the next book - is called Necessity Times, but you can call her Nessie.

The Quality Times series has been called a 'romp', and that's exactly the kind of thing I was going for. I love light-heartedness in my sci-fi, and this was no different. Hence, the shrinkable ship and squabbling between Quality and her, dare I say, companion Tim.

Another thing about the series is that while Quality and Tim are kick-ass in their own way, they react to danger more out of an "oh-flipping-heck-I'd-better-hit-this-baddie-before-they-hit-us-first" sort of way.

So, if you like Doctor Who (and if you do, I love you already), light science fiction and a healthy dose of subtle humour, you may just enjoy this.

More About the Author

Gayle always had an active imagination right from the time in primary school when she used to spend half the time dreaming up stories and poems.

As she grew older, those creations were confined to the pages of numerous notepads in the form of stories. In fact, she still had a few pads of paper from ten years ago, which she should really recycle, someday...

In 2011, after having taken an Open University course in writing and having decades of scribbling down stories for her own personal enjoyment under her belt, she took advantage of the new self-publishing platforms that had sprung up online and published her first short story, Cigs, Bolan & Strange Men With Guns.

Her books are on the light side of science fiction and fantasy, and tend to have a sprinkling of humour throughout.

Gayle has a worrying obsession with Doctor Who and really wants a TARDIS of her own.

Love Quality Times! She's a tongue-in-cheek time-traveling adventurer. Her sidekick, Tim, is a great foil for her jaded demeanor as she's dragged into an ever-increasingly dangerous adventure with twists and turns to keep you turning the pages! Tim, an unapologetic Whovian, tries telling people he's a Timelord from Gallifrey, much to Quality's chagrin.

In their first adventure (of many, I hope) Quality Times and Tim are on a quest to see the universe. With a time machine/space ship that shrinks down to the size of a child's toy, all of time and space are theirs for the exploring. So where do they go? Why to a resort, of course. That's where they meet Bob, a self-styled archaeologist complete with safari outfit and pith helmet. Bob's hunky assistant Qez, a.k.a. Bluey the "sexy police siren" catches Quality's eye.

Joining forces with Bob and Qez, Quality and Tim try their hand at grave robbing, I mean archaeology, and end up taking on more than they'd anticipated.

The Whispering Tombs is a rollicking good romp complete with betrayal, greed, grave robbing, gunplay and extinct critters that keep popping up at the darnedest moments. It's a quick and fun escape that ends all-too-quickly and leaves you turning the page looking for more. You'll gasp with surprise, laugh out loud at some parts and groan at others. All-in-all, expect to be delighted and entertained.

It was a very interesting story, easy to follow. Interesting but very strange. I had forgotten that it was a short story, and I thought it ended very strange.

This was a fun, quick read that kept me entertained the entire time. The action starts off right away and stays on the same level throughout the entire novella. I know the author likes Doctor Who (if you haven't caught on...) and the main protagonist reminds me a bit of River Song. Highly enjoyable.

This is okay but it sure leaves you wishing there were more to the story. The characters are lacking in development, but pretty believable. The story has a few funny spots and really does flow well. But I do wish there were more to this one.
