Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Newman brings an intriguing mix of modern world, Victorian/Regency England, and faery in her Split Worlds series, and this third volume brings a strong resolution to the conflicts between the worlds established in the first two volumes."
-LOCUS magazine

Praise for Between Two Thorns:

“Emma Newman has built a modern fantasy world with such élan and authority her ideas of why and how the seemingly irrational world of Fairy works should be stolen by every other writer in the field.
Her characters are complex and troubled, courageous at times and foolhardy.
This book of wonders is first rate.”
Bill Willingham, Eisner Award winner, and creator of Fables

“Emma Newman has created a reflection of Bath that reminds one that charming is not safe. Between Two Thorns shows the darkness beneath the glamour of the social Season. Learning to be a young lady has never seemed so dangerous.”
- Mary Robinette Kowal, Hugo award winner, and author of Shades of Milk and Honey and Glamour in Glass

"With a feather-light touch, Emma Newman has crafted a very English fantasy, one brilliantly realised and quite delightful, weaving magic, mystery and parallel worlds together with ease. Newman may well be one of our brightest stars, The Split Worlds: Between Two Thorns just the beginning of a remarkable journey." 
Adam Christopher, author of Empire State and Seven Wonders 

“Emma Newman is an extraordinary new voice in SF/F.”
Paul Cornell, Hugo Award winner, and author of London Falling and Saucer Country

Meet the Author

Emma Newman was born in a tiny coastal village in Cornwall during one of the hottest summers on record. Four years later she started to write stories and never stopped until she penned a short story that secured her a place at Oxford University to read Experimental Psychology. In 2011 Emma embarked on an ambitious project to write and distribute one short story per week – all of them set in her Split Worlds milieu – completely free to her mailing list subscribers. A debut short-story collection, From Dark Places, was published in 2011 and her debut post-apocalyptic novel for young adults, 20 Years Later, was published just one year later – presumably Emma didn’t want to wait another nineteen… Emma is also a professional audiobook narrator. She now lives in Somerset with her husband, son and far too many books.

At this point, it is probably no secret that I am a HUGE fan of the Split Worlds books. I believe every single one may be better than the last one. From the very first book, Emma Newman has put together some of the most interesting characters that could fill such an amazing world while keeping them all relatively believable. This is incredibly difficult to do in such a fantastical setting as the Nether. But she has handily achieved this and even made most of her more villainous characters interesting. I was most impressed in All is Fair by the last half of the book where things truly change dramatically. It is all most like it is the pay off for the entire series. And she ends the book on a kind of cliff hanger that must be read to be appreciated. As many of my peers have observed, the Split Worlds books MUST be read in order and it is not impossible but not recommended to miss one book in the series. Considering there are only currently three books this shouldn’t be hard for anyone to achieve. The depth of the characters and the reader’s love for them really depends on reading the entire series. I have to say, that I truly feel 100% invested in this world and all it’s characters I would love for this series to go on indefinitely. There is little more to say about this book other than it is another fabulous entry in a fabulous series that anyone who likes fantasy will truly love. I certainly can’t wait for the next book.
