As part of the celebratory nature of the book, being the fiftieth of the New Adventures novels, one chapter contains contributions from the authors of all the previous books in the series (except Jim Mortimore). The section by author Neil Penswick features Death in a brief cameo, quoting her dialogue from the original The Books of Magic mini-series written by Neil Gaiman.[1]


A wedding is meant to be held between Mr Jason Kane and Professor Bernice S. Summerfield in 2010. However chaos erupts as Time Lord associates show up from all over. And someone seems to want to prevent the entire event in the first place.
