Reviews

  • Fierce, ruthless and unputdownable

    Karen McManus, bestselling author of One Of Us Is Lying
  • Post-#MeToo, novels aimed at teenage girls frequently revolve around topics of consent, slut-shaming and revenge porn. The haste to be timely can mean half-cooked ingredients, something Hannah Capin's Foul Is Fair could never be accused of: rather Capin turns the heat up high to roast setting...wicked fun!

    Financial Times
  • Rhythmic, propulsive prose drives this bloody retelling of Macbeth at a relentless pace all the way to its violent end...impossible to put down.

    Kirkus
  • [A] dark, brutal revenge fantasy, sharply feminist and brimming with melodic prose. Capin's sophomore novel is bloody brilliant - exceedingly bloody, and every bit as brilliant

    Dana Mele, author of People Like Us
  • Capin's writing will seduce you with its beauty and then, when you least suspect it, slice you to the bone - just like Foul is Fair's captivating, vicious, entirely unforgettable heroine, Jade

    Layne Fargo, author of Temperand and co-host of Unlikeable Female Characters podcast
  • Fierce, vicious, and electric. If books had teeth, Foul Is Fair would have fangs. Capin's language glitters dark and her writing cuts deep. Revenge is a dish best served by this deliciously unapologetic coven

    Laurie Elizabeth Flynn, author of Firsts and Last Girl Lied To
  • Vicious and beautifully brutal, Foul is Fair gives a sword to every girl who has ever been a victim and makes them a warrior. This book is pulls no punches . . . An unapologetic feminist battle-cry that leaves you breathless and thirsting for vengeance

    Sonia Hartl, author of Have a Little Faith in Me
  • Foul is Fair delivers the story of a girl who snatches control back from a world that stole it away, through whatever means necessary. Hannah Capin deftly combines stunningly lyrical prose with the raw power of engulfing fury, sending a message written in blood. In a world where too many are forced into silence, this book roars back

    Sophie Gonzales, author of The Law of Inertia and Only Mostly Devastated
  • Jade does what uncounted sexual assault survivors have dreamed of doing - she takes matters into her own hands. What ensues is part [...] revenge fantasy, part diabolically well-planned manipulation, and it's all done in lyrical prose that feels dreamy and so much like Shakespeare. A gorgeous, scorchingly emotional novel

    Wendy Heard, author of Hunting Annabelle and The Kill Club and cohost of Unlikeable Female Characters podcast
  • This revenge fantasy told from the point of view of a rape survivor will shock and awe.
