Cover blurb:
When the TARDIS collides with a spaceship en route to the planet Skonnos, the Doctor, Romana and K-9 soon uncover the horrible truth about its cargo. The ship is carrying the young sacrifices for a powerful, horned creature called the Nimon.

But why is the creature so desperate for the delivery, and what other dangers await the time travelers? All will be revealed at the center of the labyrinthine Power Complex on Skonnos.
