Necessary Evil - Ian Tregillis

Necessary Evil  - Ian Tregillis

The final book of the Milkweed Triptych. LOVED this series. It really made you think. Think of time as we know it, and how it could be and the possibility of changing things, not necessarily for the better or worse, just... changing it.


There were some that I really felt sorry for


Klammer, Klaus, the twins, even Will, though some think he got what he deserved.

I found it interesting that Ian didn't go down the road where, if something changed in the future it affected the person that came from the future... his scars didn't go away once the timeline was changed, he didn't lose or gain memories, he was who he was throughout.

I wish that he could have found happiness in the end instead of being old and alone. He sacrificed so much for his family, his country... it's just a shame.


Though I'm sure Will had to go, it was sad that he did.  He was a connection to the Enochians, so he really couldn't stay, but I liked the poor sap. He meant well, but he was pretty naive and really wasn't very reliable, so I guess it was for the best.  I was wondering how that was going to pan out seeing that his line changed and he wouldn't meet Gwendolyn in his new future. But still. It was sad.

(show spoiler)

I really enjoyed Ian's writing style and how he was able to describe something that has never existed in a way that you could actually picture it in your mind when you read it.


If you enjoy the concept of time travel, you really need to give this series a chance. You're sure to enjoy it!
