The long-awaited return to Emma Newman's popular fantasy series,A Little Knowledgetakes us back to the Split Worlds, where dynastic families feud across the ages, furthering the agendas of their cruel supernatural patrons.

"Emma Newman is an extraordinary new voice in SF/F." -Paul Cornell, Hugo Award winner, and author ofLondon FallingandSaucer Country

Cathy and Will are now the Duchess and Duke of Londinium, the biggest Fae-touched Nether city, but they have different ideas of what their authority offers. Pressured by his Fae patron, Lord Iris, Will struggles to maintain total control whilst knowing he must have a child with his difficult wife. Cathy wants to muscle the Court through two hundred years of social change and free it from its old-fashioned moral strictures. But Cathy learns just how dangerous it can be for a woman who dares to speak out...

Meanwhile, as Sam learns more about the Elemental Court it becomes clear that the Fae are not the only threat to humanity. Sam realises that he has to make enemies of the most powerful people on the planet, or risk becoming the antithesis of all he believes in.

Threatened by secret societies, hidden power networks, and Fae machinations, can Sam and Cathy survive long enough to make the changes they want to see in the world?

Threatened by secret societies, hidden power networks, and Fae machinations, can Sam and Cathy survive long enough to make the changes they want to see in the world?"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 Made to Kill "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
