About this item
About the Book"The land outside of the Old City was supposed to be green, lush, hopeful. A place where Alice could finally rest, no longer the plaything of the Rabbit, the pawn of Cheshire, or the prey of the Jabberwocky. But the verdant fields are nothing but ash--and hope is nowhere to be found. Still, Alice and Hatcher are on a mission to find his daughter, a quest they will not forsake even as it takes them deep into the clutches of the mad White Queen and her goblin or into the realm of the twisted and cruel Black King"--
Book SynopsisThe author of Alice takes readers back down the rabbit hole to a dark, twisted, and fascinating world based on the works of Lewis Carroll...
The land outside of the Old City was supposed to be green, lush, hopeful. A place where Alice could finally rest, no longer the plaything of the Rabbit, the pawn of Cheshire, or the prey of the Jabberwocky. But the verdant fields are nothing but ash--and hope is nowhere to be found. Still, Alice and Hatcher are on a mission to find his daughter, a quest they will not forsake even as it takes them deep into the clutches of the mad White Queen and her goblin or into the realm of the twisted and cruel Black King. The pieces are set and the game has already begun. Each move brings Alice closer to her destiny. But, to win, she will need to harness her newfound abilities and ally herself with someone even more powerful--the mysterious and vengeful Red Queen...
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
