Review: I absolutely loved the first book in this series by Cameron Jace. It was a completely new retelling of Alice in Wonderland and it was beyond unique.
This book constantly kept my guessing and on my toes. I never knew what was going to happen and I never figured it out. The villains are absolutely horrifying and there is a dark element to these books that makes it just scary enough to be entertaining. This books villains are The Muffin Man and Cheshire Cat (the villain from the first book in the series).
I’m not a fan of the character, Jack, so wasn’t really upset by his story arc and how it went down.
One negative for me was that I was confused by some points of the story. Maybe it was because of the amount of craziness and insanity going on. I did find myself trying to figure out what I was getting confused about, which took some time.
I highly recommend this series to any fans of Alice in Wonderland and modern fairy tale retellings. This is an absolutely amazing series and so well written. The third and (I think) fourth book of the series are already out.
