What an original idea! It was the premise that hooked me - the writing style was only average.
See, Alice has grown up in our world, in disguise - she's secretly Alyss Heart, queen of Wonderland. Wonderland isn't so wonderful, though - the robot "card soldiers" are on the prowl for Alyss and her friends as they race against time to... well, I can't give away the ending!
As I mentioned, the writing was only OK, but the book was a nice length and the premise really captured my imagination!
