Review - Bloody Good by Georgia Evans

My Thoughts: This book takes place in England during World War II. The main character is Alice Doyle, doctor of the area of Brytewood, England. Strange things begin to happen in the area, such as missing patients and murdered neighbors. Those murdered are missing blood. Brytewood's legends include many magical beings that Alice denies are real, even though her heritage indicates she's a Pixie. She is also not looking for love, but may find it in Peter, her assistant.
I like the idea of this story because it is interesting to mix the War with vampires, pixies, dragons and more. But I don't think enough was told about the magical creatures. I want to hear more back ground, but maybe that is why this is a first book in a series of three.
About the Author: Geogia Evans is a pen name for author Rosemary Laurey. She has written books about World War II for children and adults. If you like, you can see an interview I did with her HERE, and check out the Brytewood website Here.
