Between Two Thorns

Something is wrong in Aquae Sulis, Bath’s secret mirror city. 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 give up eternal youth and the
life of privilege she’s been born into?

Back in 2011, Emma began writing a story a week for a year and one day, all set in  The Split Worlds, many bloggers hosted them.   Those stories were an extra treat, the back story if you like to the novels.  It is not necessary to have read any of these tales to enjoy Between Two Thorns  however, if you’d like an extra treat dip in and out of them – Emma tells a grand story,  and I do mean ‘tells’ – not only can you read them but you can listen also,  Emma includes a recording of each one. Follow the blog trail to read them all.  The novel stands alone but these stories are a real treat, and well worth the reading.

Between Two Thorns is the first novel of the Split Worlds,  coming out in the UK on March 7th and the US on February 26th.The novel will completely stand alone, without benifit of the shorts.

Between Two Thorns is a 400 page urban fantasy.
