I have truly enjoyed reading Curiouser and Curiouser with a mix of Alice in Wonderland and Oliver Twist. Alice is a very strong female lead and very good at what she does. Alice has spent her life taken care of others and putting others before herself. She will do whatever she has to do to keep the people she loves and cares about safe and happy no matter what the cost to herself.
I loved the world the author created for Curiouser and Curiouser with the airships and the clockwork cats. I loved the mix between Alice in Wonderland and Oliver Twist. I can’t wait to check out more of Melanie Karsak’s Steampunk Fairy Tales worlds.
