All Is Fair by Emma Newman

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

“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

All is Fair by Emma NewmanIn love and war nothing is safe.

William Iris struggles to keep the throne of Londinium whilst hated by his own court and beset by outsiders, while Cathy discovers the legacy of her former governess. But those who dare to speak out about Society are always silenced. Sometimes for good.

While trying to avoid further torments from the mercurial fae, Sam finds himself getting tangled in the affairs of the Elemental Court. But an unexpected offer from the powerful and enigmatic Lord Iron turns out to be far more than Sam bargained for.

Max and the gargoyle are getting closer to uncovering who is behind the murder of the Bath Chapter and the corruption in London and Max finds the gargoyle’s controversial ideas harder to ignore. Can he stay true to his sworn duty without being destroyed by his own master, whose insanity threatens to unravel them all?

Praise and Reviews:

“The many enjoyments of this urban fantasy include the brio of Newman’s storytelling, her expert interleaving of disparate storylines, and the obvious affection she has for her cast of likable characters.”
The Guardian

“As a debut fantasy the Split Worlds series nails it, and Emma pins her colours to the mast as someone who can weave a great story, that can grow and evolve as events within the story dictate. 5*****”
Fantasy Faction

“I really did love this book and hope that Newman does have some more Split Worlds tales up her sleeves!”
Reviews and Other Ramblings

For The Split Worlds Series:

“You know that feeling you get, after you have read something so incredible and feel empty once it is over? That is how I feel with The Split Worlds. I feel that no review I could write would justify the amazing-ness of this series. The series is humorous, political, aggravating, and heartbreaking. All in one. There is violence, fantasy, romance, some smut, corruption, mystery…every genre all rolled into one plot line.” – The Bibliophile’s Apprentice

The Split Worlds Trilogy marks the author as someone to watch for her future endeavors, be they within the Split Worlds or elsewhere.” – Skiffy and Fanty
