The Jack prophesied: If the king loses his head, then the Queen with a Bleeding Heart would rule the Red Court until Time ceased to move forward. When a second carried on for infinity, every creature in Wonderland would tip their Hat to the misfit girl with a Boy’s name (or was it a boy with a Girl’s name?) who’d end the Reign of Terror. However, it all hinged on the One-Eyed Hare being able to convince an uninspirable Heir that the impossible was indeed possible—like stopping time—and that Love was worth a Beheading.
Heads would Roll…
Hearts would Break…
In the end, would it matter who Reigned?

Buy the Book:
You'll be aware of the original story, whether it's from the book or maybe the Disney version or maybe the one with Johnny Depp in it. Either way you must be vaguely aware of the story.
It is actually really difficult to review the book without giving away spoilers and I definitely do not want to do that. I would describe the book as different take on the original, it keeps you hooked on the story and think about Johnny Depp's version but with a lot more flair.
I was a little apprehensive before I started reading because "What if I hated this version?" and "What if it made me feel different about the version I knew". It turns out that I really need not have worried, the book is a great addition to what you already know and I love them both. I think with Sarah's version because I knew so much before reading this that it made this book even better, if that makes sense.
Wonderland is already a weird and wonderful place but Sarah has managed to make it EVEN more so. I'd read this book over and over again and would definitely recommend it to those that have loved the original and to those who love to dream. Beautiful, disturbing and wonderful and I loved every single page.
