Review: Bloody Good by Georgia Evans

Bloody Good by Georgia Evans
Publisher: Kensington Publishing Corporation
Pub. Date: June 2009
320pp

In the first of a supernatural trilogy, one Dr. Alice Doyle finds that the power to fight evil comes from places she'd never believe...

While the sounds of battle echo through the sky, a lady doctor has more than enough trouble to keep her busy even in a sleepy hamlet outside London. But the threat is nearer home than Alice knows. German agents have infiltrated her beloved
countryside—Nazis who can fly, read minds, and live forever. They're not just fascists. They're vampires.

Alice has no time for fantasy, but when the corpses start appearing sucked dry, she'll have to accept help where she can get it. If that includes a lowly Conscientious Objector who says he's no coward though he refuses to fight, and her very own grandmother, a sane, sensible woman who insists that she's a Devonshire Pixie, so be it. Indeed, whatever it takes to defend home and country from an evil both ancient and terrifyingly modern...

Alice Doyle stumbles upon an injured stranger and being a Doctor, it’s her duty to patch him up. After this encounter, the stranger mysteriously disappears and strange occurrences start to happen across town.

Alice Doyle finds herself baffled when bodies turn up drained dry….What is a girl to do?

Alice soon discovers Nazi vampires hiding among the local folk causing havoc across the land led by Gerhardt Eiche. With Gerhardt Eiche's thirst for victory, it’s up to Alice to stop the Nazi vampires from conquering England. She's determined to get help any way she can even if it's with the unlikely war objector, Peter Watson and her grandma who insists that Alice is a pixie.

Bloody Good is the first book in a supernatural World War II trilogy with a twist….vampires & other mythical creatures. The historical setting is totally different from what I’m use to reading in supernatural books but I enjoyed how Evans was able to tie the supernatural elements into the historical events during WWII. The writing has an English tone and the characters are interesting and nicely written.

Overall, this was a bloody good read! Bloody Awful and Bloody Right are scheduled to be released in July & August. I can’t wait to see what happens next.

Rating: 4 out of 5 Stars
