The Milkweed Trilogy by Ian Tregillis

This trilogy consists of the following three books (shocking, I know): Bitter Seeds, The Coldest War, and Necessary Evil. I enjoyed the books well enough, although it was yet another alternate history of World War II, with warlocks on the British side and German supermen with powers, and a dollop of time travel just to make things that much more interesting. I liked them, but they reminded slightly of another book I had read with a vaguely similar premise, mainly the alternate history WWII and Britain with warlocks bit. I got a bit tired of all the running around and time travel – it was frenetic, and the sorcery didn’t appeal to me for some reason. Don’t get me wrong, I love sorcery, just not has this was done.

So, that’s a lukewarm review for you, but really, it’s worth giving a shot because overall it is very interesting.
