Alyss Heart, heir to the Wonderland throne, was forced to flee through the Pool of Tears after a bloody palace coup staged by the murderous Redd. Lost and alone in Victorian London, Alyss is befriended by an aspiring author to whom she tells the violent, heartbreaking story of her young life only to see it published as the nonsensical Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. Alyss had trusted Lewis Carroll to tell the truth so that someone, somewhere would find her and bring her home. But Carroll had gotten it all wrong. He even misspelled her name! If not for royal bodyguard Hatter Madigan's nonstop search to locate the lost princess, Alyss may have become just another society woman sipping tea in a too-tight corset instead of returning to Wonderland to fight Redd for her rightful place as the Queen of Hearts.
As I mentioned I have read this book before, but I will never regret reading it again. This book creates a world far beyond our imagination. It contradicts everything we believed to be true about wonderland. It has everything a book could want: Murder, love action. The characters are well rounded and are very expressive in the way they were written. The plot we knew is completely off and the knew one will throw you for a loop. I would recommend this book to people ten and up for mild, non-graphic violence.
