The Looking Glass Wars
Frank Beddor; Dial Books
Summary: Alyss Heart, heir to Wonderland, is forced to leave her home after her murderous Aunt Redd takes over the throne. Traveling through the Pool of Tears, Alyss finds herself in London, where she befriends Charles Dodgson and tells her story about Wonderland. The author then publishes her story as Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, where he got everything wrong. Including her name! With things going topsy turvy Alice finds herself stuck in London for years waiting for her Royal body guard to come find her, so she can return home to wonderland and take her rightful place, as Queen of Wonderland.
My Review: This was truly an incredible book. I loved this version of Aylss in Wonderland! Its action-packed with a fantasy twist. The cards, the looking glasses, the assassin Cat, and Hatters wicked fighting skills just blew my mind. I could not put this book down! It is a must read!
Cautionary Notes: Violence and Fighting
