Bloody Awful by Georgia Evans continues the story of Nazi vampire saboteurs begun in Bloody Good and features the group of Others, people with special abilities. In Bloody Awful set during World War II in the village of Brytewood, she focuses on Gloria Prewit, District Nurse and werefox, and Andrew Barron, supervisor of the hush-hush munitions factory near the village. When Andrew, driving after dark with shaded lights, accidentally knocks Gloria off her bicycle and into a ditch, she suffers a broken ankle. He rushes her to the hospital and refuses to leave her side. From official release/information:
Product Description: As the district nurse for a country village outside London, Gloria has the respect of the town and the satisfaction of helping those who need it most. She'd lose both if anyone discovered that she turns into a furry red fox and runs through the Surrey hills by moonlight. But what she sees on those wild nights suggests Brytewood is under attack - from a saboteur with superhuman powers and the force of the Nazi Lufewaffe behind him. What can one werefox do against a predator with devastating weapons at his command - and the strength of the undead besides? What can a woman with a secret reveal without losing all she has? With the help of a couple of Devonshire Pixies, a Welsh dragon, and two men too stubborn to admit they're outnumbered, Gloria might just find out the answers...
