Description

Praise for Red Queen

"Alice's ongoing struggle is to distinguish reality from illusion, and Henry excels in mingling the two for the reader as well as her characters."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"Henry continues to shine as she expands upon the vision Lewis Carroll first dreamed, adding her own voice and imagination to this timeless classic." --RT Book Reviews

"If it seems too good to be true, in Henry's world, it always is...Given Henry's penchant for surprise, don't think you already know how it ends."--The Oklahoman

Praise for Alice

"Careful, this white rabbit will lead you on a psychotic journey through the bowels of magic and madness. I, for one, thoroughly enjoyed the ride."--Brom, author of The Child Thief

"I loved falling down the rabbit hole with this dark, gritty tale. A unique spin on a classic and one wild ride!"--Gena Showalter, New York Times bestselling author of Alice in Zombieland

"A dark, delightfully disturbing fall down a rabbit hole of madness and mystery. This is not your mamma's Alice...If you're looking for a book that will make you feel like you were just on a bender with the blue caterpillar, I highly recommend Alice."--R.S. Belcher, author of Nightwise

"Christina Henry's Alice takes the darker elements of Lewis Carroll's original, amplifies Tim Burton's cinematic reimagining of the story, and adds a layer of grotesquery from her own alarmingly fecund imagination to produce a novel that reads like a Jacobean revenge drama crossed with a slasher movie."--The Guardian (UK)

"A horrifying fantasy that will have you reexamining your love for this childhood favorite. Smooth velvety prose blends well with the deliciously complex characters and interesting storyline...A world that is nothing like Lewis Carroll ever imagined."--RT Book Reviews (top pick)

"Hands down one of the most imaginative and entertaining books I've read all year."--Vampire Book Club

"A dark and deeply disturbing revisit of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. Who wouldn't like it?"--Kirkus Reviews

"Henry retains all the surreality of Carroll's tale but makes it even darker, leading readers down a scarier rabbit hole and into a city that's fantastical, scary and frankly more satisfying than Carroll's original...The writing is brisk, the story compulsive...A fun, chilling, exciting, magical read."--The Oklahoman
