The first novel in Colleen Oakes’s epic, imaginative series tells the origin of one of the most infamous villains—the Queen of Hearts.

This is not the story of the Wonderland we know. Alice has not fallen down a rabbit hole. This is a Wonderland where beneath each smile lies a secret, each tart comes with a demand, and only prisoners tell the truth.

Dinah is the princess who will one day reign over Wonderland. She has not yet seen the dark depths of her kingdom; she longs only for her father’s approval and a future with the boy she loves. But when a betrayal breaks her heart and threatens her throne, she is launched into Wonderland’s dangerous political game. Dinah must stay one step ahead of her cunning enemies or she’ll lose not just the crown but her head.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really Good! I borrowed this book from my school library and started it at 7:30 in the morning. It was finished by 4:30. It was short and sweet and filled with interesting characters who kept me intrigued. It was fantastic and I would recommend to anyone who enjoys Alice in Wonderland.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Very Unique It was definitely not what I expected, I mean for one, it was about the queen of hearts instead of Alice. The book was very different from other books out there due to the odd and strangely twisted world it is set in. #plumrewards

Editorial Reviews

Every good villain deserves an origin story, and Oakes offers a fascinating glimpse into the mad queen’s complex and heartbreaking past. The novel offers some wonderful reinventions of Carroll’s classic, and fans of Alice’s more sinister elements will appreciate Oakes’ macabre touches.
