After accidentally killing everyone in her class, Alice Wonder is now a patient in the Radcliffe Lunatic Asylum. No one doubts her insanity. Only a hookah-smoking professor believes otherwise; that he can prove her sanity by decoding Lewis Carroll’s paintings, photographs, and find Wonderland’s real whereabouts. Professor Caterpillar persuades the asylum that Alice can save lives and catch the wonderland monsters now reincarnated in modern day criminals. In order to do so, Alice leads a double life: an Oxford university student by day, a mad girl in an asylum by night. The line between sanity and insanity thins when she meets Jack Diamond, an arrogant college student who believes that nonsense is an actual science.

Awesomely morbid spin on the Alice in Wonderland story line. The Cheshire Cat is going around on a murder spree while it's up to Alice and "Pillar the Killer" to stop him. I loved all the little tidbits of info Jace included about Lewis Carrol into the novel. Can't wait to read more of the series!

Well I am not only and Alice geek, but a fairy tale geek as well. I really enjoyed this retelling of "Alice's adventures underground " The dialogue between The Pillar and Alice cracked me up. I quoted many things as I read. Can't wait to read the rest of the series.
This book drove me insane. And the ending? What the damn hell???Full review to come.
