"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 Made to Kill

"Emma Newman has built a modern fantasy world with such Γ©lan 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 is an extraordinary new voice in SF/F." --Paul Cornell, Hugo Award winner, and author of London Falling and Saucer Country

"JK Rowling meets Georgette Heyer." --The Guardian

"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
