***THIS BOOK WAS GIVEN TO ME IN EXCHANGE FOR AN HONEST REVIEW***
After twenty long and painful years, Alice has finally returned to Wonderland. Done with her life on earth, she isn’t deterred by the blind cat who requests her help in rescuing the Madder Hatter; after all, the Madder Hatter is an old friend and Alice is determined to restore the life she had in Wonderland before fate cruelly took her away from it. She is willing to get arrested, to face off with Fire Monarchs, and to carry the burden of a wounded soul to save the maddening world she loves so much. Nothing will stand in her way when it comes to finding happiness–not even the Madder Hatter.
I read the first book by Cassandra Kemper the Madder Hatter, and this book follows on from that book, so you need to read it first.
Her descriptive prose continues to give your imagination plenty to work with, and I loved a certain bit in the book,
the underground network of tunnels and the way to get in and out via snails or slugs was just gross enough to be ‘Wonderful’
I mentioned in my review of book 1 that I wasn’t going to get into the debate around ‘fan fiction’ – I have based this review on the context of the book.
So all I can say to those who have not read this – If you are happy to read a book series based on Lewis Caroll’s ‘Wonderland’ then you will enjoy Book 1 and this book as well, I know I DID.
Abner ‘The Madder Hatter’ is locked up in the Queen of Heart’s ‘Wonderland asylum’, Alice and Cheshire who unfortunately is now blind set off to rescue the Madder Hatter; she is willing to get arrested, nothing will stand in her way, and when she realises that its not only Abner who is in mortal peril from the ‘Cures’ that the Asylum doctors perform, but the whole of Wonderland due to ‘The Queen of Hearts’ claiming everyone to be “Evily-Mad” Alice knows she can’t just stop at rescuing Abner.
Join Alice, Abner and Cheshire as she sets off to once more save Wonderland.
Alice also has to help Abner deal with the fall out from his treatments, Abner has a hard time trying to mend himself from his time at the Asylum, and the underlying problem he suffers with that got him sent there in the first place.
The character development continues, Cheshire is my favourite, his humour wasn’t lost due to his blindness and it leads Abner and Alice into a few ‘sticky’ situations. We get to read more about the Queen of Hearts, well she was quite the ‘crazy Queen’ and you begin to see the relationship develop between Alice and Abner.
I really enjoyed reading this book, I got lost in Cassandra’s world, I wish it could have been a bit longer, but we do get an epilogue and I am sure there will be other tales to come.
