Cover blurb:
'They called it Enamour. It turned minds, sold merchandise, and swayed elections. And it did its job far too well...'

In the city-state of Geath, the King lives in a golden hall, and the people want for nothing. Everyone is happy and everyone is rich. Or so it seems.

When the Doctor, Amy and Rory look beneath the surface, they discover a city of secrets. In dark corners, strange creatures are stirring. At the heart of the hall, a great metal dragon oozes gold. Then the Herald appears, demanding the return of her treasure... And next come the gunships.

The battle for possession of the treasure has begun, and only the Doctor and his friends can save the people of the city from being destroyed in the crossfire of an ancient civil war. But will the King surrender his new-found wealth? Or will he fight to keep it...?

A thrilling, all-new adventure featuring the Doctor, Amy and Rory, as played by Matt Smith, Karen Gillan and Arthur Darvill in the spectacular hit series from BBC Television.

Cover blurb:
LE CHARMANT, ÇA ENSORCELLE, ÇA FAIT PERDRE LE SENS DES RÉALITÉS ET ÇA FAIT TOURNER LE COMMERCE. UN PEU TROP BEAU POUR ÊTRE HONNÊTE?

La cité de Geath est placée sous le signe de l'abondance et du bonheur. Du moins en apparence. En creusant un peu, le Docteur, Amy et Rory découvrent une ville rongée par les secrets. D'étranges créatures se dissimulent dans les bas-fonds, et l'immense dragon caché au cœur du royaume suinte le Charmant, un métal précieux qui ressemble à s'y méprendre à l'or, à ceci près qu'il a le pouvoir de manipuler les émotions. Ce trésor attire toutes les convoitises. Le roi l'abandonnera-t-il face à la menace? Une terrible guerre se prépare. Seul le Docteur et ses amis ont le pouvoir de sauver Geath...

Une nouvelle aventure fascinante du Docteur, d'Amy et de Rory interprétés par Matt Smith, Karen Gillan et Arthur Darvill dans la spectaculaire série télévisée de la BBC.
