The new season is starting and the Master of Ceremonies is missing. Max, an Arbiter of the Split Worlds Treaty, is assigned with the task of finding him—with no one to help but a dislocated soul and a mad sorcerer.

There is a witness, but his memories have been bound by magical chains only the enemy can break. A rebellious woman trying to escape her family may prove to be the ally Max needs.

But can she be trusted? And why does she want to give up eternal youth and the life of privilege she’s been born into?

Quotes & Awards

  • “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 realized and quite delightful, weaving magic, mystery and parallel worlds together with ease. Newman may well be one of our brightest stars, Between Two Thorns is 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

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Phil | 11/13/2013

    " Great opening book to what looks like to be an interesting and exciting series. Some colourful characters and settings (love the 3 worlds), and great ending, leaving you wanting more. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Penelope | 8/17/2013

    " You can tell that this author has spent a lot of time in her world, crafting and creating it before writing this novel. It is extremely original, with well thought out ideas, brilliant inventions and a wonderful charm that draws you in. However, I felt that there were just too many main characters and we didn't get to spend nearly enough time with any of them. They were all worthy of more page space and I sincerely hope that we get to meet them all again, in greater detail, in future books. Also be warned there is one heck of a cliffhanger! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tina | 8/2/2013

    " This book I adored! Really couldn't put it down. Emma has written a great story in a world that just jumps out of the pages. The characters are brilliant and you're rooting for the good guys and the bad guys are just vile. I really can't wait for the second book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Heather | 2/21/2013

    " A different take on the faery-real world tale, and a fresh spin on the standard girl-resists-social-conventions tale. Engaging. "
