Necessary Evil Summary

Necessary Evil: The Milkweed Triptych: Book Three by Ian Tregillis

The history of the Twentieth Century has been shaped by a secret conflict between technology and magic. When a twisted Nazi scientist devised a way to imbue ordinary humans with supernatural abilities - to walk through walls, throw fire and see the future - his work became the prized possession of first the Third Reich, then the Soviet Army. Only Britain's warlocks, and the dark magics they yield, have successfully countered the threat posed by these superhuman armies.

But for decades, this conflict has been manipulated by Gretel, the mad seer. And now her long plan has come to fruition. And with it, a danger vastly greater than anything the world has known. Now British Intelligence officer Raybould Marsh must make a last-ditch effort to change the course of history - if his nation, and those he loves, are to survive.

Necessary Evil Reviews

One hell of a read * Buzzfeed *
Ian Tregillis triumphantly concludes his astonishing, brilliant, pulse-pounding debut trilogy . . . a book that veers precipitously from unexpected and chilling ruminations on the inherent evil of precognition; to the questions of loyalty and betrayal so thorny that they need a time-travel loop to really be explored; to spy-thriller action sequences that will keep you up under the covers with a flashlight, turning pages and unable to sleep. This is a remarkable set of books, and with all three in hand, would make a fabulous spring read -- Cory Doctorow * BOING BOING *
Darkly fascinating . . . A thoroughly satisfying conclusion to an imaginative tour de force * KIRKUS REVIEWS *
Tregillis' conclusion of the Milkweed Triptych is the piece de resistance of the series. Necessary Evil is a perfect marriage of science fiction, fantasy and alternate history. His narrative flows seamlessly, and his plot is fantastically convincing. Tregillis' characters astound, the villains as well as the heroes, especially honorable, tormented yet heroic Raybould * RT BOOK REVIEWS *

About Ian Tregillis

Ian Tregillis is the son of a bearded mountebank and a discredited tarot card reader. He was born and raised in Minnesota, where his parents had landed after fleeing the wrath of a Flemish prince. (The full story, he's told, involves a Dutch tramp steamer and a stolen horse.) Nowadays he lives in New Mexico, where he consorts with writers, scientists and other unsavoury types.
