I reread this because I thought a rereading might be good before continuing on with the series since I have a tendency to forget things. Also, I was curious what it would be like to have Emma Newman narrate her own book. Her narration was good but not quite as...enthusiastic? as I was expecting afte...

Series: Split Worlds #1 Cathy is from a fae-touched family and she’s run away to live in Mundanus, our world. Her family wants her back, though, so she’s dragged kicking and screaming (more or less) back to their home in the Nether, which is between the normal world and the world of the Fae. Nethe...

This is an original and entertaining urban / cross-over fantasy of manners. I enjoyed it for skimming the angst in favour of dipping into poisonous social interactions, and I very much enjoyed the arbitrary viciousness of the Fae. That said, I didn't really warm to any of the core characters - findi...

I started reading this because I have just been absolutely spun by Emma Newman's Planetfall, which is going to be up for like a million awards, mark my words. Planetfall is fucking aces. I had Ms Newman's Between Two Thorns in my ereader, along with its sequel, because I'd requested them a million y...

When I finished this I breathed a sigh of relief. I really enjoy Emma Newman's Tea and Jeopardy podcast and desperately hoped that I would also like her book, and I did.The story opens with Sam, trying to find somewhere to relieve his bladder after a night involving too much alcohol, which ends up w...

It had a lot of elements in it: Alternate history with Victorian England and modern day, Fae and Fae world, Murder mystery, abusive and controlling families, arranged marriages, duels, all wra...

An alternate reality exits, mirrored cities, called the 'Nether' for Faerie families. Opposite of the Nether is the Mundane, where humans live. Cat, daughter of a powerful Faerie family in the Nether, wants desperately to live out her life in the Mundane city of Bath, rather than the rather Victori...

I received this book as an ARC through Net Galley in exchange for an honest review. I really enjoyed this story. The mix of magic, Victorian manners, and the modern world was interesting and well developed. It took me quite awhile to get into things, and I had a bit of trouble understanding how the ...

The summary makes it seem that this book is only about Max and it’s not. There are four main characters, the book takes us through four different points of view, the most of which seem to be Cathy, the “rebellious woman”.Max is an Arbiter, which is some kind of law enforcement? I’m not entirely sure...

This is came pretty close to getting two stars from me. I'm very torn. On one hand the world building is stellar and the cast of characters is very enjoyable. This book is so very obviously influenced by Johnathan Strange and Mr. Norrell, and I mean that in a good way. I loved the fae here, and th...
