Review - Doctor Who: Salt of the Earth (Time Trips) by Trudi Canavan

Title: Doctor Who: Salt of the Earth (Time Trips)
Author: Trudi Canavan
Pages: 44
Release date: 6th March 2014
Publisher: BBC Digital

Blurb from Goodreads:

The Third Doctor and Jo Grant arrive for a well-deserved holiday of sun and 'blokarting' on a salt lake in Australia in 2028. Weird sculptures adorn the landscape - statues carved from the salt. People have been leaving them in the salt lakes for years - but these look different. Grotesque, distorted figures twisted in pain. They don't last long in the rain and the wind, but they're just made of salt... Aren't they?

My Review:

*I received a copy of this book via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. Thanks to Random House UK, Ebury Publishing and Trudi Canavan*

3/5 stars

The Third Doctor and Jo Grant go to Australia on holiday but end up at a salt lake and not the beach like Jo wanted. 
But this is no ordinary salt lake. 
Strange statues scatter the lake that don't survive in wind or rain.
Is there more to these statues than meets the eye?

This was a very quick read that I enjoyed but for me the problem was resolved too quickly and could have been elaborated. 
Despite this I liked the book overall.
