The first novel in Colleen Oakes’s epic, imaginative series tells the origin of one of the most infamous villains—the Queen of Hearts.
This is not the story of the Wonderland we know. Alice has not fallen down a rabbit hole. This is a Wonderland where beneath each smile lies a secret, each tart comes with a demand, and only prisoners tell the truth.
Dinah is the princess who will one day reign over Wonderland. She has not yet seen the dark depths of her kingdom; she longs only for her father’s approval and a future with the boy she loves. But when a betrayal breaks her heart and threatens her throne, she is launched into Wonderland’s dangerous political game. Dinah must stay one step ahead of her cunning enemies or she’ll lose not just the crown but her head.

The author has just announced that the SparkPress editions are no longer available because HarperTeen has acquired rights to the whole trilogy. Books one and tw...
It took me a month to read this book. Let me repeat that again: ONE WHOLE MONTH. I wouldn't go as far to say it's a bad story, but it's definitely underdeveloped and the strengths of the book do not compensate for its faults. My main issue has to do with the lack of plot. The entire plot can be...
“Listen to me, Dinah,” he hissed. “Things are going to change for you, child, and you had better be made of stronger stuff than the whiny brat you seem to be now.” Nope. Didn't happen. I feel like this book pulled a bait-and-switch on me, and I am so incredibly frustrated right now. It promised me ...
