May 12, 1940, Westminster, London, England: the early days of World War II.
Raybould Marsh, one of "our" Britain’s best spies, has travelled to another Earth in a desperate attempt to save at least one timeline from the Cthulhu-like monsters who have been observing our species from space and have already destroyed Marsh’s timeline. In order to accomplish this, he must remove all traces of the supermen that were created by the Nazi war machine and caused the specters from outer space to notice our planet in the first place.
His biggest challenge is the mad seer Greta, one of the most powerful of the Nazi creations, who has sent a version of herself to this timeline to thwart Marsh. Why would she stand in his way? Because she has seen that in all the timelines she dies and she is determined to stop that from happening, even if it means destroying most of humanity in the process. And Marsh is the only man who can stop her.
Necessary Evil is the stunning conclusion to Ian Tregillis’ Milkweed series.

I love books!
I loved The Milkweed Triptych. Combination superhero\Cthulhu type story. This one in particular was a great capper for the series.
Lets face it,no one who wants to read this book hasn't read the first two. So i don't have to try and sell the awesome story to anyone. However,this was again,a great story and narration. Anyone that loved the first two books need to listen to this one.
Bitter Seeds was good...The Coldest War was great...but Necessary Evil was the book that brought the previous books together and blew them away. I really did not see these books going in the direction that they did, especially Necessary Evil. I had a hard time predicting where the book would go, and really enjoyed how it turned out. Kevin Pariseau was good to hear again, and I liked how they kept him as the narrator throughout the series. I think this is the best book in the trilogy - if you liked the others, get this one now!
I would be willing to read another book from Ian Tregillis, but it would not be my first choice.
No, I wouldn't. There are better books out there and I wouldn't waste my time reading this book again.
He was good at portraying different characters and really went into the roles. I particularly liked his voice for Will.
No. This was the last book in a series, so that question is quite stupid. The story ended there, so there is no natural way to continue the story.
There are no listener reviews for this title yet.
