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.

MEDIA 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 pièce de résistance 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

“Excelent ending to an excelent trilogy”

Nicely wraps up this excelent trilogy.

The last chapter brought a tear to my eye.

I look forwards to the author's next book.

I would add a recommendation to read Charles Stross' Laundry series (The... More
