Note:  A later reprint removed the image of Billie Piper from the cover, presumably due to use-of-likeness issues after Piper left the programme (the same happened for several other of the new series novels featuring Rose). View alternate cover

Cover blurb:
Mickey is startled to find a statue of Rose in a museum — a statue that is 2,000 years old. The Doctor realises that this means the TARDIS will shortly take them to ancient Rome, but when it does, he and Rose soon have more on their minds than sculpture.

While the Doctor searches for a missing boy, Rose befriends a girl who claims to know the future — a girl whose predictions are surprisingly accurate. But then the Doctor stumbles on the hideous truth behind the statue of Rose — and Rose herself learns that you have to be very careful what you wish for...

Featuring the Doctor and Rose as played by David Tennant and Billie Piper in the acclaimed hit series from BBC Television.

'THE DOCTOR IS A LEGEND WOVEN THROUGHOUT HISTORY.'

A 2,000 year old statue of Rose Tyler is a mystery that the Doctor and Rose can only solve by travelling back to the time when it was made. But when they do, they find the mystery is deeper and more complicated than they ever imagined.

While the Doctor searches for a missing boy, Rose befriends a girl who it seems can accurately predict the future. But when the Doctor stumbles on the terrible truth behind the statue, Rose herself learns that you have to be very careful what you wish for.

AN ADVENTURE SET IN ROMAN TIMES, FEATURING THE TENTH DOCTOR AS PLAYED BY DAVID TENNANT AND HIS COMPANION ROSE TYLER.
