In Evans's sparkling debut, mythic "Others" from English folklore must band together to protect their homeland during WWII. When country doctor Alice Doyle encounters a mysterious stranger injured in the woods, his quick recovery and disappearance leave her puzzled. Then a farmer is found dead and drained of blood, trouble brews at a secret munitions plant, and conscientious objector Peter Watson begins making eyes at Alice. Gerhardt Eiche, a Nazi vampire with sabotage and conquest on his mind, hides among villagers and refugees, many of whom-including Alice and Peter-are not quite what they seem. Treating childhood stories of fairy folk as historical records, Evans presents convincing characters in an intriguing story that will have readers eager to dive into Bloody Awful and Bloody Right, due later this summer.
