I'm really pleased to welcome Emma Newman back to the blog today. A writer of post-apocalyptic fiction and short stories, Emma is also the author of The Split Worlds, a quirky urban fantasy series published by Angry Robot Books. The first book, Between Two Thorns, came out earlier this year and has been receiving rave reviews. Now, the second book in the series, Any Other Name, is being unleashed on the world, and Emma has asked me to take part in the celebrations. Of course, I said yes!
Here's the blurb (doesn't it sound good?!):
Any Other Name follows on directly after the events in Between Two Thorns. Cathy is secretly seeking a way out of Nether Society by helping Max and the gargoyle to investigate the murders in the Bath Chapter. When she learns more about the mysterious Agency which oils the wheels of life in the Nether it becomes clear that the privileged few are enjoying their existence at a price far higher than they realised. It's time to change Nether society, but with assassins, Fae lords and revengeful fallen Rosas to deal with, can Cathy survive long enough to make a difference?
