Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Oakes continues to weave literary magic as she pulls you down the rabbit hole into a Wonderland like you’ve never [heard] before.” Chanda Hahn, New York Times bestselling author
“Oakes gives the Queen of Hearts an origin story in this deliciously dark tale…Fans of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland will enjoy the twists Oakes gives to familiar characters…Heart-stopping action makes the pages fly, and Dinah’s struggle to stay true to herself amid impossible expectations resonates.” Publishers Weekly
“This latest in fairy tales retold makes the classic villain less villainous by showing her tenderhearted backstory. Familiar faces from the original story are here, developed alongside new characters. The reader is quickly warned that ‘evil is rising in Wonderland,’ and that hook alone will draw readers.” Booklist
“A wonderfully entertaining twist on an old classic.” Kirkus Reviews
