about

What began with a reimagining of Peter Pan and Wendy now twists into a stunning version of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass!

Gwen, Pete, and the others have escaped from Everland. But the safe haven they hoped to find at Alnwick Castle doesn't exist. With the Queen of England on her deathbed, Duchess Alyssa has stepped in to lead, but things have gotten worse as the cure Doc created for the Horologia virus has mutated, accelerating the disease. The only possible solution he can think of is to go back to the virus's origin: an extinct poisonous apple.

Legend has it a tree bearing the apple might be found at the center of a deadly labyrinth hidden deep within Germany. A place that no one in their right mind enters. Leaving Pete in charge of the survivors, Alyssa sets out with only her sword, her wits, and the help of Maddox Hadder, a wild boy who oversees the castle gardens. To get to the center of the maze, she'll be forced to battle monsters more terrifying than her darkest nightmares.

But can anyone truly survive the madness of the maze? And what if there's no apple to be found there?

Wendy Spinale is a former character actor for the Disneyland theme park (so she's very familiar with the world of make-believe). Everland was her debut novel. Wendy lives with her family in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bad Sequel Syndrome Its sad how much lame can be lurking under such a beautiful cover. The characters who were in the first book acted like totally different people in this book. I remember Gwen being a strong and able to take care of herself but in this book... she was a wuss. Sure, bad stuff happened but bad stuff happened to her in the first book too and she didn't act so babyish. Pete was constantly getting mad and punching stuff in this book (walls, mirrors, his friends). He was basically a baby Hulk who wasn't green. Yeah... just nah. Off to the DNF zone goes Umberland!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Action Packed Adventure Pete, Gwen and the Lost Boys and Girls have made it to Alnwick castle. They hoped it would be their sanctuary but it turned out to be their hell and time is running out to find a cure to the virus dropped by the Bloodred Queen. This novel was action packed from beginning to end. I cannot wait to continue the adventures of this wonderful crew.
