Goodreads Summary:

The land outside of the Old City was supposed to be green, lush, hopeful. A place where Alice could finally rest, no longer the plaything of the Rabbit, the pawn of Cheshire, or the prey of the Jabberwocky. But the verdant fields are nothing but ash—and hope is nowhere to be found.

Still, Alice and Hatcher are on a mission to find his daughter, a quest they will not forsake even as it takes them deep into the clutches of the mad White Queen and her goblin or into the realm of the twisted and cruel Black King.

The pieces are set and the game has already begun. Each move brings Alice closer to her destiny. But, to win, she will need to harness her newfound abilities and ally herself with someone even more powerful—the mysterious and vengeful Red Queen…

My Review:

I wasn’t sure what to expect in this sequel, but what I got was something I didn’t think I wanted or needed. But oh, how I did!

What I loved about this one was that it was a lot different than the first book! It took a different route, the way I feel like a place like Wonderland truly would. I loved Alice, loved Hatcher, and loved this story! There was wonderful character growth for Alice, and I feel like she very much discovered herself!

There was magic, and reveals, and emotions, and horrifying whimsy! The writing was on point and honestly, I want more of this world!

I only have a couple of reads this month since I’ll also be working on my mentee’s manuscript with the #WriteMentor program. My good friend, BookDragonGirl, sent me Nevermore, so I’ll be reading that! And also, I’m very excited to read Read Queen!

A few May releases!
