The Looking Glass Wars (Looking Glass Wars #1)

The Looking Glass Wars by Frank Beddor tell the true story of "Alice in Wonderland."

The book that Lewis Carroll wrote was not at all what Alyss had told him. He even spelled her name incorrectly.

Alyss Heart is the princess on Wonderland. Her parents (her mother really) rule the Queendom. Her aunt Redd, the firstborn was sent into exile - unfit to rule based on her attachment to Black Imagination - but has returned to steal the thrown from Queen Genvieve.

During the battle, Alyss and Hatter Madigan, the head of an elite force of protectors to the royal family known as the Millinery, escape through the pool of tears. Alyss ends up on the streets of London 1859. Hatter Madigan ends up in Paris. He must find Alyss and protect her until they can return to Wonderland.

Thanks for reviewing The Looking Glass Wars. Did you have an opinion on the book? We'd love to hear your thoughts. There are two other books in the series, the third (ArchEnemy) coming out in October. And movie news at www.lookingglasswars.com Let us know what you think!

I loved the book. I thought Frank Beddor did a brilliant job of taking the information in the original book and making it exciting and fresh.

I have the second book at home already! (I just have to read a few others for my master's project on fantasy before I can read any second book...)
