Publishers’ Description: For centuries, Wonderland thrived as the domain of beautiful bedlam and unapologetic madness. It was a place like no other. All it took was one girl slipping in through the cracks of the universe to start chaos spiraling toward order. In the 150 years since Alice’s visit, the realm has become tainted—almost normal. Rabbits in waistcoats and playing card minions are little more than creatures of myth, and Wonderland is literally falling to pieces.
For Gwen, Rose, and Lucky, Wonderland is home, and yet they know little of its former glory. When the Alice prophecy resurfaces, they’ll have one chance to use Wonderland’s own legends to bring a little mayhem back into their reality. For she who controls Alice controls the fate of Wonderland.
Too be fair, I didn’t really get through this novella to the end as I was bored out of my mind. Alice in Wonderland redux, part dieu-thousand. This may be a case of the author being in love with their own creative ideas, and in this case, not really creative at all. Just a re-spin of the wheel. Jumps around a bit with no decisiveness. White Queen to Alice Pawn, check. Girl on bridge, car into water…check. This sucks, check-mate.
