Until the night of Jade’s sweet sixteen, when they crash a St. Andrew’s Prep party. The night the golden boys choose Jade as their next target. They picked the wrong girl.

Content warning here

Foul is Fair is a dark, raw, powerful and cruel novel that had me hooked on every chapter, every word, every bloody nail and every cut-throat snarl between characters. I found myself emmersed in the world of this novel and unable to tear myself away – my heart pounding and head racing to see what Jade and her coven would do next.

There are a lot of trigger warnings for this novel, so it is definitely necessary to check the trigger warning above before you read this novel.

I loved how this book brought back one of my favourite things – titles for chapters. I know, it’s small, but I love titled chapters and I got that back in this book. I have rated this novel down purely for the fact that it is a very fast book, which occasionally makes the darkness in the book overwhelming because minor character interactions are missed.

Hannah Capin is the author of Foul is Fair and The Dead Queens Club, a feminist retelling of the wives of Henry VIII. When she isn’t writing, she can be found singing, sailing, or pulling marathon gossip sessions with her girl squad. She lives in Tidewater, Virginia.

  • “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
  • “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 Temper and co-host of Unlikeable Female Characters Podcast
  • “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 and will make anyone think twice before uttering the phrase ‘just a girl’. 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.”
      • S. Gonzales, author of The Law of Inertia and Only Mostly Devastated

  1. Ahh this book sounded so good. I’m glad you enjoyed it, even if it wasn’t perfect for you. Sometimes I am really in the mood for fast paced books as well. I think chapter titles are really cool, I saw some for ‘Wicked as you Wish’ the other day which looked really fun.
    I loved reading the Q & A as well, it is so cool that you got to interview the author. Great post Emma ❤
