Alice (The Wanderland Chronicles Book 1)
Chasing a rumor about a mysterious doctor with a cure, Alice falls down the rabbit hole into a world she never knew existed. To save her sister, Alice must navigate the strange city and its inhabitants quickly, because in Wanderland the ravenous momerath aren't the only danger lurking.
Not only does this author intertwine the memorable lines, characters, and personalities of the original story, but she was able to recreate the beautiful chaos of Wonderland in her post apocalyptic Arizona Wanderland that was infested with disease ridden beings. Instead of singing flowers and toked up bugs, Sullivan reinvented each beloved character in a dark, twisted, and superb way. I immediately fell down the rabbit hole with Alice and enjoyed every single moment! Sullivan kept the iconic lines we adults remember from childhood and played up the imagination of Wonderland for a wide range of ages to get into.
I highly recommend this novel to any Alice lover who may also have a evil side and enjoy a wonderful retelling of a fantastic childhood story. Alice is the fairytale I've been waiting for in my adult life. Complete with hidden gems, messages, and gore it's a novel that will drive you completely mad -- but don't worry, we're all mad here.
So go! Pick it up and read because it has seriously been the best retelling of Alice in Wonderland I've ever read!
Excellent retake on Alice in Wonderland! This is not your cute Disney kids show. Even for those who are not familiar with the classic story, this story is a run-away train with non-stop action, colorful characters and all the tension a reader could ask for. J.M. Sullivan is an author to watch for. Her writing pulls the reader into the story and you find yourself holding your breath one minute and cheering the next. I will definitely be watching for the sequel(s) to the Wonderland series. Don’t plan on getting much sleep until the final page.
