A mind-bending new novel inspired by the twisted and wondrous works of Lewis Carroll...
In a warren of crumbling buildings and desperate people called the Old City, there stands a hospital with cinderblock walls which echo the screams of the poor souls inside.
In the hospital, there is a woman. Her hair, once blond, hangs in tangles down her back. She doesn’t remember why she’s in such a terrible place. Just a tea party long ago, and long ears, and blood…
Then, one night, a fire at the hospital gives the woman a chance to escape, tumbling out of the hole that imprisoned her, leaving her free to uncover the truth about what happened to her all those years ago.
Only something else has escaped with her. Something dark. Something powerful.
And to find the truth, she will have to track this beast to the very heart of the Old City, where the rabbit waits for his Alice.

I bel...
Sorry guys, this one did not do it for me. I thought it would and to be honest I gave this book a fair go at it. At about 100 pages in though, I had to close the book and move on to another story. One that did not try too hard to be scary or one where I found myself knee deep in sexual assault and r...
Alice in Wonderland retold with Alice as a patient in an asylum. It's an intriguing premise, and reminiscent of American McGee's Alice (one of the best platformer action games ever made, I should add), but completely different. In fact, a better comparison would be Alan Moore's retelling of Alice's ...
