“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
