"Acceptance comes from the strangest people."
Gloria is the district nurse of the war torn town of
Brytewood. She has everything a woman could ask for, a
career, the respect of her town, and moonlight runs through
the field as a fox. Gloria is a shape-shifting fox. She
captures the eye of the manager of a secret factory that is
whispered to be a munitions plant, named Andrew. Andrew
falls fast and hard for the lovely nurse.
Their first date was almost ruined by bombs, but they
recovered it with a passion filled night in an empty hotel
room. As things begin to take a turn for the weird, Gloria
finds out that her boss is half pixie, and that a dragon
lives in town. She joins the ranks of the Others to
fight and save her town from the vampire intent on
Ms. Evans continues her saga of the small town of Brytewood
during the World War. This tale picks up right where the
first one left off and continues with a vengeance. From
the first page to the last, the pace is fast and the action
fierce. It was nice to revisit Alice and Peter and their
friends. Gloria steals the show as a no nonsense woman who
(with the help of pain medication) forces Andrew to declare
his love for her in the middle of town by way of a kiss.
Andrew holds his own even when his world is turned upside
The sheer number of Others present in the town makes
me hope that there will be future tales from Brytewood. The
lives of all its inhabitants will always have a warm place
inside my heart. The remarkable gift Georgia Evans has for
creating beautiful scenes that leap off the pages is one to
be treasured. I can not wait to read the third book.
