Alyss of Wonderlandâ's rule has only just begun and already those who prefer chaos to peace are threatening to destroy everything worth imagining. Trailed by newly appointed Royal Bodyguard Homburg Molly, Alyss does her best to keep pace with the spiraling, non-stop demands of being Queen while attempting to evade Molly for a few private moments with Dodge. Alyssâ's life is already a challenging mix of duty, love and imagining when a series of phantom sightings set fire to an urban myth of her Imperial Viciousnessâ's return and have everyoneâ?Seeing Redd. Has Redd somehow freed herself and her chief assassin, the Cat, from the confines of the Heart Crystal to challenge her niece once again? If not, then who has resurrected Reddâ's brutal footsoldiers, the Glass Eyes, and set them loose to attack Wonderland on all sides? Battles rage, looking glasses explode and the Alyssians are once again uniting to defend White Imagination in this fast-paced second book in The Looking Glass Wars trilogy.
In THE LOOKING GLASS WARS, Frank Beddor reinvented the Alice in Wonderland story, turning Wonderland into a violent fantasy world dominated by the cruel mistress of "black imagination": Redd Heart. However, Heart's rule was cut short when Alyss, the daughter of the Red Queen, returned from her exile in England and reclaimed the throne. Now, in SEEING REDD, Alyss is struggling with her duties as queen when suddenly rumors begin to spread that Redd has returned, along with her notorious assassin: the Cat.
